We start and end with the Royal One of the Undersea as Chris shows off some Namor artwork, then we delve into crime as Sam talks up CRIMINAL, compares to STRAY BULLETS and SIN CITY, and talk up potential dream directors for Brubaker and Phillip’s masterpiece.

We then yammer about some books with ALMIGHTY’s Ed LaRoche, including recent X-FACTOR, ASTONISHING SPIDER-MAN/WOLVERINE #3, THUNDERBOLTS, SHADOWLAND: POWER MAN, Kieron Gillen’s THOR run, we go back to last week and grill Chris on his NEMISIS #3 throwdown, and talk up scripting for artists compared to the artist doing it all. Last, we touch on the GI:JOE – COBRA SPECIAL, X-MEN LEGACY #240, WONDER WOMAN #603, THE TECHNOPRIESTS, NAMOR #2, PRISON PIT by Johnny Ryan, and we ask Chris a hard question – should Namor and Sue ever be together?
