Then we dig into everything else including Rook’s experience at bike week, Dallas’ search for Promethea, mail-order comics, excessive smack-talk directed at Don, who’s missing this week, The obligatory New 52 conversation, and more ending with an explosive WHAT ARE YOU READING. Al’s pick of the week is SPACEHAWK by the timeless and inspiring Basil Wolverton. Dallas picks ALL STAR SUPERMAN by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, and Rook picks the comic adaptation of A GAME OF THRONES.
