Acmecast
The Radiation!!!

Stephen celebrates the century and a quarter episode of Acmecast by making good on a promise from Acmecast #100, interviewing his parents, Janet & Richard Mayer, on their thoughts about Acme Comics, classic sci-fi and fantasy, superhero blockbusters, physist graphic novel biographies and MORE!

Editor's Note: - with the title, derived from the first page of All Star Superman, I meant in no way to liken myself to Superman or imply that I must have been adopted, I more wanted to compare the salt-of-the-earth, grounded perspective my parents have on comics to that the Kents gave to Clark when he landed on Earth.

Jermaine, Jody, Michael and special guest Jay Howerton throw all sense of jurisprudence to the wind as they preside over the cases of Acme Comics v. the Big Bang Theory over whether or not females are a welcome and not at all unusual demographic of the comics community, Damian Wayne v. Kid Loki to decide the right bodyguard in times of strife, and Superior Spider-man v. the Haters on whether or not it makes any sense, I guess!
