After Mr. Cornell warps out via TARDIS, we finally come to terms with our experiences at this year's New York Comic Con, assisted by the one and only Dave Wachter of Scar Tissue! Over the course of the three-day event, we managed to corner great writer of stuff, Peter David, Mr. Web of Spider-Man, himself, Alex Saviuk, and good ol' Frazier Irving from Silent War! Also appearing: Chris, Sal, and Tom from Around Comics! Doombot! Domino Blue! Rick Gordon from the Pop Cult Online! Many Miguels! Matt S. from Comic Timing and That's What She Said! Pat Loika, the Awesome Sauce! Joseph the 4th from Australia! Dave Wachter delivers a stunning, tear-soaked rendition of Captain America is Dead by listener John Osborne! Listener email! Captain America #25! All this and the usual dose of potty humor and pop-culture craziness that can (thankfully) only be found in one place: the Bullpen!

Greetings, true believers!

Bullpen Bulletins is a new podcast from Vince Bonavoglia and David Price bringing you news, reviews, and opinions on Marvel comics, Marvel characters, and Marvel's creators.

Once a week we'll be peeking into the House of Ideas and telling you everything that's great (and maybe not so great) that we're reading.

Huge thanks to Chris Neseman (from Around Comics) and Sean Whelan (from Raging Bullets) for drinking this idea into our heads.

Excelsior!
