Episode 8: Sexy Dance Fighting

Reviewing Black Canary #7 from 1993 featuring the deadly dancer known as Capoeira. Also listener feedback from episodes 6 and 7.

This episode is a little shorter because I only had the time and energy to review one issue. I tried out a new microphone for this recording thinking it would make things easier. I'm not all that thrilled with the final result. I didn't care for how quiet and soft everything sounded, so I tried to boost it with some other settings in GarageBand. Anyway, I hope the quality doesn't sound to you as craptacular as it does to me.
