Jermaine and Stephen pop in to catch you up on their favorite books of the week and let you know what they really thought of Thor the Dark World before turning it over to a pre-recorded session with Jermaine and Ryan Rubio in which they discuss how Wolverine is one of the few Big Two characters to truly transcend the old adage that what comic readers truly want is merely the illusion of change!
