Andrew, Kevin, Phil and Steve cover more All-New Marvel NOW! #1′s: Wolverine, All-New Invaders, Ms Marvel, Punisher, and Loki: Agent of Asgard while our host mentions a couple of those pluse All-New X-Factor and Superior Spider-Man (of course).
While your regular host is off gallivanting with gallivant-worthy entities, DC takes over the show (not the corporate rivals who own Superman, but the despised Derek Coward, who usually keeps his rambling confined to Comic Book Noise) and introduces a segment by Steve and the guys by insulting a bunch of people while talking about Blade and the inability to make him a big name hero in comics. Fast forward to about nine minutes in to get to the Rakery goodness.
While usual host David is missed, Steve Raker, Kevin whirlwindx, Phil, and Andrew the LArabbit combine forces and discuss the All-New Marvel NOW! titles that have hit the shelves so far!
Host Derek Coward keeps this from being a skip week by talking about The Hero Initiative, beginning and ending universes, and Tom Brevoort’s answers to questions.
