We’re back! Since our long hiatus we have lost our dear co-host Ivan who has fulfilled his lifelong dream of living on the road as a professional competitive eater. The hole he left was so big that we had to bring in new co-hosts Jessica and Jesse to fill it!
On our first episode back the “J-Team” talks Howard The Duck in the Duck Tales Universe, asks “Who Is Thor?”, travels to new worlds with Southern Cross and try to make sense of Surface. Jessica tries to stump Jacob with the hardest Superman quiz ever written then they both interview Rick Remender (with a surprise drop in from Nick Dragotta) after an in-store signing!
