Episode 742 - RIP Carrie Fisher: Drowned in Moonlight, Strangled by Own Bra

Reviews: Hookjaw #1, Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #1, Power Man and Iron Fist Vol 3 Sweet Christmas Annual #1, Doctor Who Christmas Special

Jimmy has to fly solo this week since everyone is still away for Christmas! But he got the December co-host Jon Hoche and frequent co-host Emmy Potter to send in some audio reviews. No news as it was one of those slow news weeks due to the holidays. It was also a sad week in our world with the loss of pop icon Carrie Fisher. Many friends/listeners sent in their tributes/thoughts on it all. Thanks to Carrie, Kerri, Rachel, Emily, Emmy, Adam/Comfort, Rebecca, Qui, Shena, Erica, Katelan, Sina, Vera and Marta! I know many others wanted to as well and I thank you. Carrie Fisher was a legend and we all miss her. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
