Episode 14 - Bonus Discussion on A.D. After Death

In lieu of recommendations on our last episode on Kill Or Be Killed #9, here's a bonus episode for our Undertow listeners on the recently wrapped Image comics miniseries A.D. After Death by Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire. We both enjoyed this book immensely, and to no one's suprise, ended up talking about it in relation to Brubaker and Phillips partnership as well.  Great sci-fi, with a touch of crime, and gorgeous watercolors made this a fun to book to read and break down.

After Death.
