Also in this episode: all (or a bunch of) the news from NYCC, new trailers for Justice League, Pacific Rim and Runaways and the first issue of Slots (Image) by Dan Panosian. Also, Rachelle would like to apologize for the sound quality of this episode. It all sounded great in the headphones during recording, but it turns out the actual recording was being done by the laptop microphone, not the hand-held mics/mixing board. She did her best trying to fix up the audio in editing. Dave, you will notice, was sitting further away from the laptop.
