We're having a pizza party! Midtown Comics crew Ted, Andrew and Sam along with co-host and customer Gavin chat with Kill Shakespeare writer Anthony Del Col about the Kill Shakespeare universe and the projects it has spawned, including a upcoming board game.  He talks about his new book Sherlock Holmes vs Harry Houdini.  Then pitted against the collected minds of the hosts in a game of trivia about the people he writes about.  He then talks about his love for boy bands and that turns into the birth of a comic book idea featuring the five of us in a band that solves crimes in the cities we visit while on tour.

Our top pics this week are discussed and a certain mutant in his last days is on the top of our reading pile.

The whole team is finally in the same room for a episode!  Midtown Comics Downtown Manager Ted, Grand Central Manager Dimitrios, Jill of All Trades at Midtown Comics Downtown Sam, Marketing Manager Andrew and customer Gavin are together for the first time.  Dimitrios was even nice enough to bring along a random stranger off the street that he met on the subway earlier that day.  

We catch up on the each others week, talk about last weeks audio problems and Sam tells us about a small independent press expo she's involved in called Paper Jam.

We talk to Becky Cloonan about her upcoming book she's writing Gotham Academy and what it's like to be writing a book in the bat universe.  The gang all took a quiz to see how well they know high school Becky and the results are not what you think. Becky answers questions from the audience and teases us with Zucchini Bread.

We tell you what we thought the best of the week was and how confused we are with Multiversity #1 and what we're looking forward to next week.  

Andrew is called out on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and accepts it during the show. Who does he nominate?

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!
