Joel and D'Vonte are talking with Earl Geier, manager at Graham Crackers Comics, the biggest comic book store in downtown Chicago. According to his bio, Earl thinks Spider-man has been a clone since Steve Ditko left the title, and everything after 1968 is "new books". He's been reading books for almost as long as any of us, and has forgotten more about comics history than you'll ever know! Having spent a spell illustrating RPG games like Battletech and Call of Cthulhu, he and his staff of Graham Crackers Junior Rangers are trying to squeeze as much product as possible into our store and helping customers find what they want. 

Originally recorded in 2019... we got to visit the store and record on location on one of our legendary field trips.

Season 7 theme is "Hobbies & Life Hacks."
