Back on Tuesday's episode, Martin briefly mentioned an article in which DC publisher Dan Didio mentioned that the reason for the comic market sales slump was an oversaturation of product and Martin wasn't buying it. Joining Martin on this episode is Ronnie Barron from the Absolute DC podcast and the two discuss what Didio means by this, whether it's a real problem, and how to fix it. Plus, where is Milestone? Did DC forget about Rebirth? Why is Red Hood and the Outlaws so damn good? And how amazing was The Seeds from Dark Horse?
