In this issue, we got a bunch of free comics, and we didn’t have to torrent a single page. SO it’s Divergence, Secret Wars, Fight Club and more in What We’ve Been Reading. THEN It’s a live edition of John Dee’s™ Geek Related Challenge…Or Something – with an actual live John Dee.
PLUS: Our Kick-Ass Pick of the Week™: GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH, by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver. This is BEHIND THE PANELS.
Your Hosts: Richard Gray, David McVay, David Longo & Guest: Jaime Lawrence (Good Games Hurstville) + Bonus Guest: John Dee (Nerd Corner Podcast)
