House to Astonish

Paul and Al have got an hour and a half of comics discussion for you, with news on the passing of Dan Adkins, James Robinson leaving DC, Disney's Big Hero 6 movie, Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick's t-shirts for charity and a run through the August solicitations, along with  reviews of The Dream Merchant, Avengers: The Enemy Within and... well, something special. The Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is no competitive eater, just a regular book with a serious appetite.
