• April 11th, 2014

Welcome to a very special episode of Hey Kids, Comics!  that takes a unique spin on the crossover!

Joining forces with Mrs. JediCole's movie review show Whadjathink?, Andrew and Cole Houston are joined by that show's hosts Catherine Houston and Bobby Blakey as they jointly review Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  
 SPOILER ALERT!
While this show tends to avoid the odd spoiler for as long as possible, Whadjathink? tends to be nothing if not spoiler rich. As a result of this crossover we highly recommend that you await giving this issue a listen until after you've seen the movie.  We talk about pretty much everything!
