House to Astonish Episode 162

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for comics news, and Paul and I are back with a brand new podcast to fill you in on everything that’s been going on, from the Image Expo to the Sandman Universe, from Marvel’s Fresh Start to Bendis’s Super-Books, and from IDW’s Transformers reboot to Boom! and Dynamite stepping up to the Eloi section of Previews.

It’s a dumb argument, because politics have always been a part of superhero comics.
