Comics Alliance Podcast 104: Church of Nerd HQ, Jem and the Holo-Tumblrs, and Asian American Iron Fist

Untitled-1

Welcome back to the ComicsAlliance Podcast, covering the latest comic book entertainment culture, news, humor and commentary. Joining Senior Editors Andy Khouri and Caleb Goellner for this episode are Senior Writer Chris Sims and Staff Writer Andrew Wheeler.
