Need something to be thankful for this November? How about 2+ hours of Near Mint action to keep you company as over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house you go!

The appetizer is a very Josh-centric opening, as he recaps European travels, NASCAR and new academic endeavors. Then we dish up a Superman-sized portion of comic talk including Batman, Liberty Annual 2012, Uncanny Avengers, The Walking Dead TV series, The Dark Knight Returns animated movie and more. Plus, we get into a healthy conversation about the newly-minted Marvel NOW!

After that, it’s time to open up the Near Mint mailbag and answer some listener questions which take us down a dark and winding road beset by wardrobe interventions, disembodied voices and fight scenes, setting the stage for an exiting and high-stakes next episode.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone – DIG IN!

Music in this episode by: The Rolling Stones, Wiz Khalifa, Public Enemy, El Cuarteto De Nos, The Marvelettes

Editors Note: If you have questions for the next Near Mint mail-call, send them to nearmintcomicshow@gmail.com. We’d love to hear from you!
