We're having a pizza party! Midtown Comics crew Ted, Andrew and Sam along with co-host and customer Gavin chat with Kill Shakespeare writer Anthony Del Col about the Kill Shakespeare universe and the projects it has spawned, including a upcoming board game.  He talks about his new book Sherlock Holmes vs Harry Houdini.  Then pitted against the collected minds of the hosts in a game of trivia about the people he writes about.  He then talks about his love for boy bands and that turns into the birth of a comic book idea featuring the five of us in a band that solves crimes in the cities we visit while on tour.

We talk to Becky Cloonan about her upcoming book she's writing Gotham Academy and what it's like to be writing a book in the bat universe.  The gang all took a quiz to see how well they know high school Becky and the results are not what you think. Becky answers questions from the audience and teases us with Zucchini Bread.

We tell you what we thought the best of the week was and how confused we are with Multiversity #1 and what we're looking forward to next week.
