THAT COMIC SMELL: Holy Grails and Intention Fails

The latest episode is online now.

From the web:

“If at first you don’t succeed, wait a couple years and come back to it I guess ”
Hello! Hello! Welcome to another edition of That Comic Smell. This time we are discussing the books that we have sought after. The ones that have sat on the shelves with a proverbial halo around them and angel chorus. We are talking about our absolute holiest of “Holy Grails” but in the same breath we are also discussing the ones that have sat on our shelves dormant and unused, waiting for us just to pick them up one day and actually flick through without putting them straight back and declaring them “Intention Fails”

This and all the usual comics chat on…
