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.
