We’re down two men as Caleb is a prisoner of the legal system, while the Hammer is in aerial transit. However, we’re picked up by returning fave Mark Sable (writer: Two-Face: Year One, Grounded, Unthinkable, Hazed), and False Start ‘zine proprietress Meredith Wallace ( Meredith talks about how the web introduced her to DIY/Feminist ‘zine culture, how she started False Start after college, and some of her recent favorites, like INVINCIBLE SUMMER, ALABAMA GIRL #9, & LOVE LETTERS TO MONSTERS #3. Mark enlightens us on his new ventures with Kickstart Comics (and Kickstart’s unique distribution model), which begin with his new comic RIFT RAIDERS w/artist Julian Totino Tedesco (out in comic shops mid-October, pre-order today!).

The show then delves to the deep as Chris tells tales of the Avenging Son thanks to The Sub-Mariner’s new series debut- NAMOR: THE FIRST MUTANT – we discuss King Namor’s history, past series, and the first bromance of the Marvel U with Mr. Macenzie and Doc Doom. We rise from the depths to tackle STUMPTOWN #4, THE BOYS, BATTLEFIELDS, as well as Matt Fraction’s CASANOVA.
