Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 13: Gon, Volume I of IV (1996)


This week's episode is a little bit different from our usual superhero fare... actually, it's a whole lot different.  Today we're going to meet a tiny dinosaur named Gon (created by Masashi Tanaka), and take a look at his first tankōbon volume, which contains three stories... and zero words!
Ya see, Chris picked this book to review before heading out on vacation, thinking its lack of words would make for a quick and easy synopsis.  Let's just say, he learned a lesson in "cutting corners" that day.



This episode also includes a brief discussion of the DC Comics imprint that published this (Paradox Press), the audio version of vacation slides... sure to thrill, and the second installment of our "Comics Hot Take" segment!
