Welcome to That's The Issue! This is the very first episode of a brand new era for the show, as it's the first one for Multiversity Comics! This first episode is a little bit of a zero episode if you will. Wes was unable to join me for this inaugural show due to sickness, and my voice has a unique raspiness to it that only comes from some sickness that's plagued me these past few weeks. So instead of diving right into the show proper, this is an episode that brings you up to speed on That's The Issue, as well as letting you peek into the vault by playing some of my favorite clips from past episodes of the show. Enjoy! Theme song: It Feels Good to be Alive Too by Loyalty Freak Music
