Celebrating the Unpopular Arts

House to Astonish Episode 175

We’re back (after far too long away), with discussion of DC shuttering Vertigo, Ink and Zoom; Brian Michael Bendis on Legion of Super-Heroes; the books spinning out of Heroes in Crisis; Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda; JJ and Henry Abrams and Sara Pichelli’s Spider-Man; the returns of Pretty Deadly and Battle Chasers and so much more – join us after the cut, why don’t you?

There was one bookstore in particular… sadly, long gone now, but I’ve never forgotten it.
