Our lovely panel of hosts Ted (Midtown Comics Downtown Store Manager), Andrew (Midtown Comics Marketing Manager), Sam (Jill of all trades at Midtown Comics Downtown and Youtube video host) and man on the street customer Gavin are joined by friend of the store Jess who got a exclusive first look at the TMNT movie.  She lets us know if it will to appeal to the average fan like herself.

We talk about the launch of the New York Comic Con ticket sales and best tips to get yours this year.

Then we get into a great conversation of famous people who have shopped the store, favorite San Diego Comic Con news and Eisner Award winners.

Of course we talk about what we read this week and what we have our eye on next week.
