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.
