Dan and Ben take the helm this week for an episode jam-packed with comic talk. In a totally inaccessible Top o’ the Pile, Dan plugs a 50-year-old Doom Patrol story, and ben previews the yet-to-be-released Image comic, Citizen Jack. We discuss the news spinning out of NY Comic Con, including two upcoming X-Men shows and Y: the Last Man, headed to TV.

Later, Dan lets us help with an art Purchase decision and we debut a new game. Six Degrees of Howard Chaykin is a mashup of UNO and the telephone game with rapid-fire comics recommendations. All this, plus Saga, Bitch Planet, Paper Girls, I Hate Fairy Land, Tokyo Ghost and just about everything but Howard Chaykin – listen now and avoid eternal damnation.
