Coming soon to raid a library near you; Sidekickcast hosts Dan and Gavin accompanied by the tyrant of trades Mikey Bumchin. To kick off the boys discuss Captain America casting and the Great Amazon Glitch, did you get your cheap books?

The score is 13-9 to Gavin in the only comic book news quiz that matters; Secrets and Lies, can you sniff out the wolf among the sheep? Still no Knowing Me, Knowing You but we have a double Dig This! as we taske a look at Kling, Klang, Klatch and Mikey pimps us Vertigo’s Fables. Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for some out-take goodness.
