Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Inside this episode!
We begin with a review of the brand new Hexed #1 by Michael Alan Nelson, Dan Mora, and Gabriel Cassata. Then a review of the previous week’s She-Hulk #7, the best issue yet for the new series, brought to you by Charles Soule, Javier Pulido, and Muntsa Vicente. Kevin Wada did the gorgeous cover seen below. Up next we have an interview with Black Widow writer Nathan Edmondson. Responsible for Marvel’s current Black Widow title, and also the fantastic, critically acclaimed, and coming soon to a theater near you – Who is Jake Ellis? and the current Where is Jake Ellis?, Edmondson talk about his approach to Natasha and working with both Phil Noto and Tonci Zonjic. We then talk a little bit about the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, general comics news, and Sue gives us an update on Boston Comic Con, where she was last weekend. Finally Sue managed to find an adorable DRAMATIC READING. Enjoy!
*sidebard: we had a bit of trouble with audio difficulties this week – just imagine while you listen that I am Rob Brydon’s famous “small man trapped in a box.” And if you haven’t seen The Trip, you all should get on that. Greatest. Show. Ever.

So, obviously this is spurred by Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy, which came out last weekend, which demolished all August film openings, which I saw this weekend, and which was, as everyone has already been telling you, pretty much awesome.
But you don’t need another post about that, you’ve seen it all before, there’s nothing new I can tell you. This movie is like pure joy, bottled and delivered directly into your soul. It’s not perfect but it’s fun, funny, and a great example of how super complicated ideas and utterly bizarre characters and concepts can be made “new viewer” friendly and yet still appeal to fans. It’s a success all around.

To crack a man’s faith, one need not resort to burning his flesh, ruining his finances, or any such obvious afflictions. One need only take a man’s species away from him.
