Sam, Ted, and Andrew are joined by not one, but TWO special guests this week. We have the current artist on Aspen’s All New Soulfire, V Ken Marion and fellow Midtown Comics employee Ingrid Rios to talk about the current projects they’re working on.  We answer some questions from Andrew’s mother, talk about CW’s The Flash, and let you know what comics you should be binge reading. Then we let you in on what comics we read this week!

If you have any suggestions for the show please let us know through our TwitterFacebook or email us at podcast@midtowncomics.com. Leave a question on our voicemail at 980-MIDTOWN and we’ll play it on the show!
