Welcome to the show notes of Geeking with Destination Venus. Click the image below to go to the download page, listen on Harrogate Community Radio or just search for Geeking with Destination Venus wherever you get your podcasts.

So we started with the return of Saga!!!!!!!!! Regie was quite excited about it. You can read more about Saga HERE, but don't. Instead go and buy the first volume and get stuck in. You won't regret it. We have the full series so far in stock at Desties, but you will find it at any good comic store and most good bookshops.

Regie also recommended Mary Jane Black Cat and the Batman Catwoman Special.

Regie also reflected on the news that Thought Bubble founder Tula Lotay is stepping back form running the festival. He's sad about it. Read more HERE.

Regie then commented on the online nonsense that Superman: Son of Kal-El writer Tom Taylor gets on Social Media, and how he deals with the misinformation. See a representative Twitter thread HERE.

Regiw also brought you the latest on the James Webb Space Telescope. Read more HERE.

He also took a quick look at the Biosentinel mission - read more HERE.
