Casual Comics Cast – Marvel Comics’ Hawkeye (Ep 202)

Two episodes in two weeks? Looks like someone is making an “effort”. Let’s see how that is working out.

In this episode, the crew discuss the new comics of next week (Week of January 15, 2020), the top selling comics of 2019, and the history of Marvel Comics’ HAWKEYE.

Also, a quick beer review of New Belgium’s Trippel Ale. Spoiler Alert, it’s quite delicious and Michael is staying strong on Dry January

This time:

  • Michael actually reads a comic book (that she got for free 8 months ago)
  • Joe finds a new anti-hero to root for: Trick Shot
  • Pat searches his soul to see if he can accept – if not respect – the existence of Hawkeye the World’s Greatest Archer
