Just in time for 4th of July Weekend, it’s an explosive episode of the Near Mint Comic Show. We open up the show with a recap of recent events including talk of Ben’s work on the Pilotgroove Pictures 48 Hour Film Project, Just Remember That They’re Dead and our review of X-Men: First Class. We dive in and talk about the major shakeups at DC Comics including our take on digital comics and a reading challenge. Then, in the second hour, we spin a tale of sorrow and heartbreak as only the comic fan can appreciate – and thoroughly earn our explicit tag in recounting a recent Twitter interaction with Spider-Man Editor, Stephen Wacker. We wrap things off on a positive note with some rave reviews of Daytripper, Spider-Man 1602, Amazing Spider-Man Annual, Locke & Key and Moon Knight … yes, Moon Knight.
