From Leonard’s site;


What a week! Volunteer Registration on the Monday, Hotelpocalypse on the Wednesday, Ace Parking winners announced, and the surprise announcement by Reed Pop a Saturday returning reg sale,! … Lots of things to talk about on this weeks show. Alyssa Franks will be your core host this week as Leonard Sultana finds himself as the MC/Panel Moderator at Nottingham’s EM-Con event, over the weekend – Leonard joins in to let us know what his thoughts of the convention have been.

This episode also includes a return appearance from Mark Searby who talks about his new ‘secret project’ that will be making its grand debut at San Diego Comic-Con, and Leonard and Mark will be giving their spoiler-free thought on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 that has hit screens in the UK this week. Again: SPOILER FREE. We’re not that mean. We also have Mike Leventhal  to help us understand the New York Comic Con tix sale & what this may mean for the General Sale upcoming.

That, and all the rest of the news of the week… Should be a fun episode! Hope you can join us.
