Go for broke! The news from the Marvel Retailer Summit have forced Shawn & Tom to discuss at length about all myriad problems Marvel actually have, as opposed to the problems they think they have. And if that wasn’t enough, the various failures of the Ghost in the Shell movie sours the mood even farther!

But it’s not all doom and gloom: There’s actually quite a lot of decent comics coming out, as we discuss the first issues of Rock Candy Mountain, Kim Reaper, Black Cloud, and Eleanor and the Egret. Plus, another trip down the 2000AD memory lane.
