Where Monsters Dwell 246 with Mark Waid

WMD 246

This week on the most swashbuckling LIVE comics radio show, we welcome Mark Waid back into the Monster Cave. Since we last chatted with Mark he has turned Daredevil back into an entertaining book, brought The Indestructible Hulk into the Marvel Now!, released the first issue of his new Dynamite book ‘The Green Hornet’ and he’s just been announced as the writer for IDW’s team up of the Rocketeer and The Spirit. We’ll be chatting with Mark about all this and much, much more so as always, if you have a question for Mark Waid, feel free to post it on our Facebook wall.

This is also our last show before we head out to the East Coast Comic Expo which is being held in our neighbouring city of Moncton, New Brunswick. If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, there is still time. It’s the very first year for this new con but it has some great guests lined up. Click here to check it out!

Comic Book Pitt #81 – Grinding Gears
