Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hello! We have a wild, rockin’ ride for you’re here!

Jimmy is joined in studio by his new favorite co-host, Erica Schultz! Jimmy chats about his visit to BookExpo America and how he chatted with some of the comic book publishers there. Alas, no interviews but some good info about an upcoming comic book or two! Also, Jimmy is traumatized by the recent episode of Game of Thrones and the recent Justice League America #4. Good thing Erica brought some of her hubby’s famous chocolate chip cookies to soothe his pain! They also chat about the upcoming Heroes Con and what they have planned. Erica is on a panel and is doing a signing at the Comic News Insider booth. Jimmy will be hosting the booth, moderating 3 panels (see info below), doing tons of interviews, taking pictures and more. You’ll also see CNI correspondents running around like Melissa Bleier and photographers Faren and Faith as well as new helper Amber! And a mystery guest rings the doorbell! News includes: DC Comics goes Forever Evil,  Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who, Grant Morrison’s Zenith is finally getting reprinted, and SheZow aims to save The Hub network. As always, listener feedback, Top 3 and more! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
