Obsessive Comics Disorder #52: "The Many Colors of Free Comic Books"

This week we wonder in what world do students get suspended when teachers show porn, find out how well Philip can pick out comic books from Free Comic Book Day, and put my Magic the Gathering knowledge to the test!  In addition, we have another classic Letter from A Douchebag Editor; which quickly goes off the rails when Philip tries to figure out a character being referred to.  All of this and much much more!

If you'd like to comment or contribute to the show, send us an email at feedback@ocdcast.com.  You can also talk to us online, I'm @ChrisTheProf on twitter and Philip is @Philip_OCD.  You can also follow us on facebook at facebook.com/obsessivecomicsdisorder.  The background music in this episode was composed by Andrew Allen and can be found on his CD's "Free Play" and "Smooth Federation" - thanks for letting us play them on the show!  Check out ocdcast.com for other great stuff, including my tabletop gaming podcast "Boards & Swords".
