It's Here! The Final Chapter! After 5 twilight hours of answering fan questions Brian and I are tired and losing our grip on reality. Listen, as John loses his ability to read english! Hear Bendis, as he shrinks to microscopic size buried under the weight of another word association list, or Paste Pot Pete reference. Will our heroes survive?

Mark's been a DC comics fan forever, and says Adventure Comics #357 was a mind blowing experience. The comic featured a classic Legion Of Superheroes story, The Death Of Ferro Lad, written by teenaged Jim Shooter, and drawn by the legendary Curt Swan. Nowadays, Mark is making Legion history himself, as the writer of Supergirl and The Legion Of Superheroes, drawn by frequent Waid collaborator, Barry Kitson. Mark is also co-writing the weekly DC Comic "52". We get updates on both books, and delve into a bunch of other pop culture topics.
