Fangirl Happy Hour, Episode #12 – “Deceptive Mushrooms”

This week on Fangirl Happy Hour, Renay and Ana raid their Fangirl Vaults/Dungeons and bring forth Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Through the Ice by Piers Anthony and Robert Kornwise to discuss (and cry/laugh about). Then we finally read Young Avengers Volume 1: Sidekicks and do a lot of delightful squealing over Kate Bishop.
