Back from a winter break, we (eventually) dive into Kurt Busiek and Carlos Pacheco’s return to “Arrowsmith: Behind Enemy Lines” from Image Comics. First we touch bases with “Usagi Yojimbo,” open The Book of Boba Fett, revisit “Shadow Hero,” and then round the corner into the return to Busiek and Pacheco’s storyworld of a fantasy-infused World War I.

We also talk about recent runs of comics we’re reading, like “Action Comics,” “Amazing Spider-Man,” Dash Shaw’s “Discipline” from New York Review Books, and “Buckhead” by Shofo and George Kambadais (Boom!). Let’s dig deep!
