The Fellowship is pleased to present a discussion of anthologies in comics, and how they're not as common as they used to be. We try to get a handle on why that's the case, just to realize that we were the target audience from the start. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Knights of the Dinner Table magazine [note: I said 10 years, but it's probably more like 25]

Ghost Adventures (Travel Channel show) with some local connotations

Getting caught up on side projects
