How Lee & Kirby's "Fantastic Four" Birthed the Marvel Universe, Part 1
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.

Heralds #1 (of 5). Kathryn Immonen (writer). Tonci Zonjic (art). Nathan Fairbairn (colors). Jelena Djurdjevic (cover). Marvel. 32 pages. $2.99.
I have been excited for this book for months.
Tonci Zonjic’s art plus Kathryn Immonen writing, plus Emma Frost, plus She-Hulk, plus Monica Rambeau, plus Hellcat, plus Valkyrie, plus Abigail Brand in a weekly five-issue mini-series?
What could go wrong?
For once, absolutely nothing.
This book was unabashedly fun, never taking itself too seriously while still managing to present characters with accurate and compelling voices and a storyline that definitely seems to be going somewhere.
