It’s the 17th Episode Spectacular and we’ve got a really big show lined up for you. First up, we weigh in on the news that has everyone talking – Disney’s 4 billion dollar aquisition of Marvel Comics.
Then it’s a blockbuster Near Mint interview, as Ben sits down to talk with Jeff Lemire. Jeff is the writer/artist of the critically-acclaimed graphic novel, the Nobody from Vertigo. His Eisner-nominated trilogy, Essex County, was just released in a 500+ page collected edition from Top Shelf. And his new ongoing monthly from Vertigo, Sweet Tooth, just dropped last week.
Finally, we hear from Scott Proulx about his trip to the San Diego Comicon and throw in a boatload of comics talk for good measure, including: Ultimate Spidey & Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man, Y: the Last Man, Batman, Utopia and more. Hold onto your backing boards folks, this one’s a whopper!
