We get the chance to sit down with the next big time comic writer Matthew Rosenberg and talk about the book we can’t keep on the shelves! We Can Never Go Home by Black Mask Studios, his other work with Marvel, and his ties to The Wu Tang Clan.  We also talk about our collective experience at Special Edition New York Comic Con and chat about the comics that we picked up and what we’re looking forward to next week.
