Weird Love #1 gives us a lot to talk about, but we stick to The Taming of the Brute, originally from Charlton’s Just Married #53. It’s a doozy and makes for a great installment of Romance Comics Theatre. Along the way, we talk up IDW’s Weird Love series, Max Headroom, and Shakespeare. Kid you not.
Listen to Episode 6! (The usual filthy filthy language warnings apply.)
