Brian Wood’s X-Men #1 has been the book on everyone’s lips this week and because of that we bring in Joey Braccino and Mara Wood (formerly Whiteside) to help us breakdown just what this all female X-Men team means to the Marvel Universe.

But, that is not all, because we also have Marty Langford the director and producer of  DOOMED! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s THE FANTASTIC FOUR. He comes on to tell us about his crowd funding campaign to get the film made, share some amazing stories about how the original movie came to be, and to just talk comics.

If you like what you hear head on over to and give to the cause of making this a dream reality.

We of course talk our Books of the Week. Some of the included titles are: The Wake, Dark Avengers, Heart Shaped Box, Wolverine and the X-Men and Marvel Knights “4.”
