Zdravstvuyte, comics enthusiasts! In this episode, Cold Warriors Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) tackle a very complicated comic book miniseries that deals with an even more complicated twentieth geopolitical situation when they read 1985's The One #1 by Rick Veitch! After a quick creator bio and a high school history refresher, they'll push past nuclear nightmares and read all of The One #1, lending their special talents to the issue. After a break, they recap every other issue in the series, and close out the Cold War with some comic books inspired by that worldwide anxiety that might have been contemporaries of Rick Veitch's series! It's going to be apocalyptic!
On the show, we mentioned Rick Grimes' Puzz Fundles, one-page comics that appeared in the back. Well, you can go to Rick Grimes' website to see all of the great stuff he's had to offer, but if you just want to see the Puzz Fundles for yourself, take a look!
