Lots of interviews from both San Diego Comic Con (Dr. Andrea Letamendi, Sam Park, Cole Drumb & Jennifer Luk) and Boston Comic Con (Ming Doyle & Jeff Burns) to get through so Jimmy does it solo so the episode isn’t too supersized. He laments/rejoices over selling his massive comic book collection (appx. 15,000) to Shelton Drum of Heroes Con fame. He also visited Boston Comic Con on Sunday and gives his recap of what he saw, whom he met, etc. Great show! News includes: Peter Capaldi is the new Doctor in Doctor Who, Sequential graphic novels app goes global, Disney to publish Space Mountain graphic novel, and Young Justice: Legacyvideo game gets delayed. As always, listener feedback, Top 3 and more! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
