Brian, Darci, and Logan court controversy yet again by discussing the news about the Keanu Reeves/BOOM! Studios KickStarter BRZKR as well as the announcement of the 4 Kids Walk Into the Bank film and the 2020 Ignatz Awards. But the main event of the episode is a discussion of Ryan O’Sullivan and Andrea Mutti‘s Vault Comics fantasy series Fearscape. Two of our hosts liked this book, but one was definitely drinking the haterade. You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out who’s who. Finally, other comics mentioned in this episode include Tartarus, Akagami no Shirayukihime, Grendel Kentucky, Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix, Seance Tea Party, and Powers: The Best Ever.

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic,Ice Cream Mancreators W. Maxwell Prince and Martín Morazzo launched an online-only series of mini-comics set in the ICM universe. The collection of these stories, Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix #1, will be available in print for the first time from Image Comics this September.
These strange little ditties were originally meant to tide folks over while the industry was on pause—and also raise money for struggling comic shops; 50 percent of all digital proceeds were donated to Comicbook United Fund/BINC Foundation.
Now, collected into print format, this is an extra-length collection of all six issues of these Quarantine Comix, featuring brand-new cover art and bonus stories by guest creators. And, as before, 50 percent of creator profits will go to Comicbook United Fund/BINC Foundation to help stores get back on their feet—because comic shops are sweet.
Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, September 9.
Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix #1 remains available to purchase in digital format on the Quarantine Comix website.
