We started out talking about Svengoolie, then said goodbye to Russ Heath and the fantastic work he left behind. Artists influenced by other artists, newspaper strips and Laugh-In and the Walmart exclusive 100 Page Super-Spectacular finish it off. Enjoy!
Dallas and Don have read the All New X-Men Trade 1 and discuss their thoughts on the book through Skype. Don briefly talks about The Maxx, and brings up that he confused that character with The Goon and Lobo, only because they were big guys with four letter names.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Robert Fripp & Andy Summers
Al is joined by Don with nothing to say, so it starts off with a book that was just picked up. That leads into the Ant-Man movie, then goes into the many guises of Hank Pym, and some of the black super-heroes of the seventies. Then they go into Pulapalooza again.

Starting out this episode, Al and Don talk about finding comic books and trades at Megacon, cosplay, and wondered if conventions still have movie rooms. After the music break they wonder why no one complains about satanic music and backmasked albums. The Paul is dead hoax is discussed along with conspiracy theories.

MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Robert Crumb & His Cheap Suit Serenaders
Amazing as it sounds, Dallas and Rook are absent, but somehow Al keeps Don from talking over the hour. The show starts off mentioning the Bill Wray episode of Sidebar: Four Color Conversations, then goes into comic book editors, which is a subject that they have thought very little about.
