House to Astonish

It's Al and Paul's last episode before their hiatus, and they're talking about Bob Kane's Hollywood Walk of Fame star, DC's new creator royalties structure, Warren Simons's promotion to Editor-in-Chief at Valiant, Elden Henson and Rosario Dawson joining the cast of Daredevil and the latest developments in the Kirby estate case, along with reviews of Outcast, Superman and New Avengers Annual. The Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe found love in a hopeless place, and a spoon in the knife drawer.

It's been a long time coming, but here it is - House to Astonish Live, recorded at the City Cafe, Edinburgh in aid of Alzheimer Scotland. Al and Paul are discussing the departures at Marvel Studios, the fallout from the Graphic.ly closure, the cancellation of Iron Patriot and the upcoming Avengers event. They've also got an interview with a comics legend, a live reenactment of scenes from a truly terrible recent comic. The Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - the other white meat.
