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?
Don't forget to visit midtowncomics.com to get all the comics we talk about and preorder Becky's book!

The gang is back and we got a lot to talk about. Midtown Comics Downtown Store Manager Ted is joined once again with Jill of All Trades at the Downtown Store and Youtube host Sam and Marketing Manager Andrew. Sitting in for Gavin, who is on vacation (but somehow makes an appearance on the show) is Dan!
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! Andrew tries to find how much a comic expert Ted is, by pitting him against Dan in a battle of comic knowledge about Grant Morrison's New X-men. A series that Dan just finished reading and Ted read five years ago! Then we talk our favorite comics for the week and what we're looking forward to next week and even get a little conversation about Lost in there somehow!
