This week on the Four Color Freak-Out the Cap’n and alphamonkey take a look at the bittersweet pentultimate issues of some of our favorite comics from Simone, Miller, and more, as well an irreverent traipse through two pretty damn good weeks of comics. Plus Torchwood: Miracle Day, and discuss why digital distribution might be the only thing that saves comics (provided it’s done right).

Give a listen already, will ya?

Note: We *totally* overlooked the very, very excellent Captain America #1 from Ed Brubaker and Steve McNiven. It’s gorgeous, it’s clever, and you need to read it.
