Monkeys Fighting Robots

We’re also reviewing Scales & Scoundrels #1 for you fantasy fans out there, and “The War of Jokes and Riddles” is winding down in a little indie book called Batman. Beat reporter Gary Moloney calls in from Ireland to discuss the comic retailers refusing to carry Marvel’s Legacy variant covers, and all hell breaks loose.
