I recently got to check an item off my bucket list by talking about vampires in comic books with three priests. (That’s on everyone’s bucket list, right?) Many thanks to Fr. Jonathan Mitchican for inviting me to join in on the God and Comics Podcast.  This was a ton of fun. Check out the latest episode, The Lure of the Vampire, featuring in-depth theological discussions of the scary sexiness of undead bloodsuckers. It’s the discussion you didn’t know you wanted to hear, but now you can’t possibly get through your day without finding out what that’s all about. Enjoy!
