We also talk about Marvel’s upcoming anti-bully covers, let you know some scary comics to read in time for Halloween, and officially introduce our new segment ‘I’m so confused!’.  We give our top picks for the week and what you should look for on the shelves next week.  Sam then fills us in on banned book week and we scratch our heads on what is actually banned and why.

We’re having a pizza party at the Midtown Comics Podcast! Midtown Comics crew Ted, Andrew, and Sam along with co-host and customer Gavin chat with Kill Shakespeare writer Anthony Del Col about the Kill Shakespeare universe and the projects it has spawned, including an upcoming board game.  He talks about his new book Sherlock Holmes vs Harry Houdini.  Then, we pit him against the collected minds of the hosts in a game of trivia about the characters he writes about.  He then talks about his love for boy bands, which turns into the birth of a brand new comic book idea.

The whole team is finally in the same room for an episode!  Midtown Comics Downtown Manager Ted, Grand Central Manager Dimitrios, Jill of All Trades Sam, Marketing Manager Andrew, and customer Gavin are together for the first time.  Dimitrios was even nice enough to bring along a random stranger off the street that he met on the subway earlier that day!

We catch up on the each other’s week, talk about last week’s audio problems, and Sam tells us about a small independent press expo she’s involved in called Paper Jam.

We talk to Becky Cloonan about her upcoming book she’s writing Gotham Academy, and what it’s like to be writing a book in the bat universe.  The gang all took a quiz to see how well they know high school Becky and the results are not what you think. Becky answers questions from the audience and teases us with Zucchini Bread.

We tell you what we thought the best of the week was and how confused we are with Multiversity #1 and what we’re looking forward to next week.

Andrew is called out on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and accepts it during the show. Who does he nominate?
