EDITOR'S NOTE: I'm legitimately proud of this episode of Acmecast. Not because of some feat of editing wizardry or the caliber of our guest, but because we let our passion fly as retailers and comic fans in a big, honest way despite what anyone else will have to say. I think it embodies what we were going for when we started Acmecast over a year ago better than anything else we've done thus far. Enjoy.

Jermaine, Stephen, Frank and Adam run through the Gold Sponsor offerings for Free Comic Book Day 2012, mourn the loss of Brian Michael Bendis from the Avengers books at some point in 2012, and get fired up about the controversy surrounding Dark Horse's date & date digital announcement! All that, plus Comics at the Table and a look ahead to next week on Acmecast #55!

Jermaine, Stephen, Frank and Adam are joined in the studio by Acmecast #22 guest Brian Ewing to weigh in on the look of the Lizard in the Amazing Spider-man movie, debate the pros and cons of Peter David's Fan/Pro Convention Bill of Rights, the merits of Locke & Key, and the best gift you can give Stan the Man this holiday season as he celebrates his 89th birthday!

Frank sits down one-on-one with Who Is Jake Ellis and Grifter writer Nathan Edmondson at NC Comic Con to go over the origins of Olympus and the future of the Activity.

And the gang milks everything they can from a meager week of new releases, discussing Daredevil #6, FF #12, Star Trek #3, Uncanny X-Men #2, Avengers Origins Thor #1, Spaceman #2 and the wonderful original graphic novel Rust from Archaia!

Jermaine, Stephen and Frank have a great conversation with Nightwing, Deathstroke and Gates of Gotham writer Kyle Higgins (and surprise guest Alec Siegel) about why Nightwing is the better Batman, how to direct a better Watchmen and how to lay out the building blocks of Gotham City!

Since a convention just wrapped, they also do their own version of Man vs. Food from the Triangle area and tear through the comics at the table!

Jermaine, Stephen, Frank and Adam completely ignore the one year anniversary of Acmecast because there's just too much going on!
