The gang (Ted, Andrew, Gavin and Sam) welcome X-files fan and store employee Ingrid back to the show to help us chat with comic writer Joe Harris about his work on IDW's Millenium and X-Files Season 10 comics.  Andrew tells how Joe made him sleep with the lights on when he was younger and we all share our X-Files memories. Then we talk about the huge Marvel Secret Wars press conference that occured in our store last Tuesday and try to make it less confusing for us.  We end up sharing out top picks of the week and it was good one for everyone.

We noticed that the file we originally uploaded last week didn't have the Jason Aaron and John Cassaday interview on it.  We have corrected the mistake. We also added it to the end of this episode in case you missed it.
