Live from Granite Con 2010, we take in all the fun and excitement from the show floor in this overstuffed edition of the Near Mint Comic Show.  With a late-arriving Josh, we open up the show with a visit from Greg Giorgio.  We’ll hear about Greg’s decent into comics fandom as he devours Invincible Iron Man, Seige, X-Men: Second Coming and the Walking Dead.  When Josh arrives, it’s off to the movies with talk on all the recent and upcoming comic book flicks.  Paul Huot and his lovely wife Nicky drop by to talk comics and weigh in on the MANE-ga vs. MON-ga debate.  And finally, we wrap things up with a hearty discussion on Lost (recorded just prior to the series finale).  All this, plus a guerilla Minterview with Jim Lee from the recent Boston Comic Con. It’s a show so big we had to finish it 2 days later.  Let’s go Flyers!
