In the last episode of 2022, Andy and I discuss the rise and fall of companies like Mad Cave and AfterShock, the increased competition in comics distribution, the spike in library censorship, and the continuing impact of AI on comics. We also have a special moment of silence at the end of the episode for all the great comic creators we lost.
