V for Vertigo is the only podcast about the world of Vertigo Comics. For 30 minutes every week, I talk about Vertigo news, review a trade, and have the occasional interview.

116 Episode 116: The Itch Aug. 22, 2011

I began the show talking about the itch I feel from time to time. No, not THAT itch—the shopping itch. It’s the reason why guys may go a little overboard when it comes to our hobbies. I reminisce on a couple of old, but great, video games.

I wish I could say I’m finally done talking about Fables, but I’m not. I am done reading about it in Fables: The Dark Ages (Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham). It finally introduces and deals with things that should have been done way earlier.
