This week Ryan is all by himself. Caleb is out with the FIST FULL OF FILMS guys, Theresa is on location, and that leaves Ryan by himself to pump out an episode. Ryan just saw X-Men: Apocalypse and has some thoughts on it. Additionally, DC Universe Rebirth #1 just hit the stands, and a bunch of comic book themed shows ended. All that and not much more, this time on THE WRITE IDEA WORKSHOP

Eighty eight episodes in to the show, and this may be the biggest derailment we've encountered. Setting off on a mission to discuss comics and local artists, the crew gets very off track and into some bottles, ending in some hilarious violence. Slapstick at it's finest. 

On a more serious note artist and creator Darwyn Cooke passed on 5/14/2016. If you're unfamiliar with Darwyn Cooke's work, he created 'DC: New Frontier' and tons of other amazing stories for some of the biggest names in comics. He will be dearly missed.
