Renay and Ana bite the bullet and finally read the webcomic Check, Please! by Ngozi Ukazu. Then they discuss Sorcerer to the Crown, the delightful first novel by Zen Cho, and manage only one Jane Austen tangent. Finally, they share their complicated feelings about the second half of Agents of SHIELD Season 2.
Ana and Renay read The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin, the first in an epic fantasy trilogy about the many times the world has ended. Then, they get all bittersweet as they read Lumberjanes issue #17, the last ever written by Noelle Stevenson. Finally, they get around to discussing the first volume of The Wicked + The Divine.
Renay and Ana welcome MCU Correspondent KJ back to the show to discuss the latest release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. We discuss the film, the place of the film in the wider universe, and speculate on the future developments as Phase II of Marvel’s world domination plan comes to a close.
