Hosted by Kris Bather and Mladen Luketin from Western Australia, ES is a weekly podcast filled with news, reviews and pop culture shenanigans. Kris (loyal superhero fan) and Mladen (manga, anime and indie defender) chat about their varying, and occasional overlapping, interests in the wonderful world of sequential art.

ExSeq ep.66 – War

55 mins. War. What is it good for? We dive into the battlefield and how it’s been represented in comics of yesteryear and today, and review Frank Miller’s new work “Holy Terror”. Plus, the wearing of shorts, head shapes and hammy thighs.
