Jill Meredith Collins Sinnott talks about A Charlie Brown Christmas. And Jay Edidin explains why the Justice League episode "Comfort and Joy" is their favorite sincere Christmas special.

Chris Sims makes his long-awaited return to Into It to talk about Archie Comics! The simple rules of Riverdale, the definition of emo, the dangers of punk, the push for diversity (and how far there's still to go). Also why Jughead gets to be hot now, and an explanation for those weird old Christian comics.
At the end of the episode, Chris asks when it will come out and I completely get the answer wrong. Which means the best episode of Movie Fighters ever is already out!
Chris Sims is a podcaster, comics writer, and the World's Foremost Batmanologist, but he also loves Christmas and Santa Claus more than just about anyone. There is so much Christmas going on in this episode: Rankin Bass specials, the best Christmas pop songs, A Christmas Story, and Santa Claus as a force for good in the world. Also Lennon vs. McCartney, pro wrestling, and the Smurfs vs. Satan.
