House to Astonish Episode 153

Paul and I are back with your irregularly-scheduled comic book podcast, and this time round we’re discussing Astonishing X-Men, Darth Vader, Edge of Venomverse and Marvel’s current creative and sales position generally; the return of Zodiac Starforce; new creator-owned imprints led by Karen Berger and Shelly Bond, Image’s announcements from ECCC; and DC’s Looney Tunes crossovers. We’ve also got reviews of Grass Kings and Redline and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook deserves a big hand. All this plus the Champions pinball table, the YouTube Robber and quite a lot of bears wearing shirts.
