The Underbase reviews Timelines Issue 10

Adam starts the show by explaining last weeks news and our announcement, in more detail, to clarify certain aspects and calm some of you wonderfull folk down.

Then jump to 10:15 and botcon! much as it ever is.

Technically, this is a botcon review... but since the guys are on the second half of a lengthy recording session (and not on a comic they particularly enjoy) the conversation takes it's inevitable spin off onto wrestling, DC comics, penguin species, Jedi and other, more serious, issues... some of this has been left to the end, so keep listening!
Explicit Language...what did you expect!
