The gang is back and we got a lot to talk about!  Midtown Comics Downtown Store Manager Ted is joined once again by Sam and Andrew. Gavin is nowhere to be found, but we have a special caller to fill in for him. We also have a customer and friend of the store, Dan, to go head-to-head against Ted in X-Men trivia!

We talk about the incredible launch of the New York Comic Con ticket sales at our stores and how great it was to see a great turnout! Andrew tries to find how much a comic expert Ted is, by pitting him against Dan in a battle of comic knowledge about Grant Morrison’s New X-Men—a series that Dan just finished reading and Ted read five years ago!  Then we talk about our favorite comics for the week and what we’re looking forward to next week.  We even get a little conversation about Lost in there somehow!

If you have any questions for the gang, let us know by contacting us through Twitter, our Facebook page or through email at podcast@midtowncomics.com

With movies like Iron Man 3, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Fast 6, and the upcoming Man of Steel, Hollywood is preparing for a season of big explosions, but comics also are about to get things going: between Superman Unchained, Trinity War, Infinity, the next chapter of Saga, and many others, there’s lots of action to pack into those 22 pages of comic. Here are some of my favorite action-adventures from recent memory. They are all collected into trade paperbacks or are original graphic novels, so you can get all your bang in one space.
