Welcome back to The Oblivion Bar: A Nerd-Culture Podcast -- The Official Podcast of The Fantasy Shop in St. Charles, MO.

For episode 093, Chris is joined by Dallas from The Comics Collective Podcast, which is is a weekly podcast where he and his co-hosts Lexi and Carol dive into your favorite comics/graphic novels in the medium.

Main Topic (7:56)

It's time for another COMIC SPOTLIGHT! This week, Chris and Dallas discuss THE LAST RONIN. Three decades in the making, this story is based on an unpublished 1987 story concept by creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. In a dank, dark future, New York City is ruled by Oroku Hiroto, grandson of The Shredder and bastard son of Karai. Hiroto runs the city with meticulous fascism and totalitarianism. A lone turtle, haunted by hallucinations of his three deceased brothers, works to end Hiroto, who he blames for his brothers' murders.

Eastman and Laird are joined by writer Tom Waltz, who penned the first 100 issues of IDW's ongoing TMNT series, and artists Esau & Isaac Escorza (Heavy Metal) and Ben Bishop (The Far Side of the Moon).
