In this segment, Matt & Chris take suggestions from listeners of the rawest moments in comics, and, if they are sufficiently raw, place them on a list. What do they mean by Raw? Chris explains:

"Folks, what we are doing with this is we are looking for the rawest moments in comic book history. Now, if you don't know what that means, it's one of those things that's hard to describe because it's a feeling, And it's that feeling, it's that 'oh shit,' like it just got real, it just popped off. Shit is like someone just did something so badass that I need to stand up, take a walk, maybe do a push up or two."

That seems pretty clear, right? If you want to submit your suggestion, send it to, and if you are a Patreon subscriber, include the line-stepper password. To edit this page, refer to the Google Sheet.
