Your intrepid host is off this week fighting the good fight against those who deserve to be fought against. He leaves the show in the drunken hands of some fool who barely introduces the rest of the show. Luckily, Raker’s Raiders save the day with a discussion that includes SDCC, Ant-Man, Secret Wars #1, and Emperor Doom!
