Hello listeners! Alex Jaffe and Gita Jackson continue on our re-read of 52. In this episode, Gita repeatedly says “the super for Symbolman” like they are suffering from a witch’s curse.

This issue of 52 is packed full of classic moments for Renee Montoya. Despite the weirdness of Renee and her lover sleeping in bed while wearing lacy lingerie, she’s still serving alcoholic lesbian realness. This issue goes to great lengths to reinforce the noir tone for Renee and the Question. It’ll take a while until you see either of these characters do something during the day.

The episodes covering each issue of 52 and the secrets they contain are free, and you can subscribe through iTunes or wherever you listen to podcasts. The bonus episodes will only be available to Aftermath subscribers. We hope you’ll subscribe and join us!
