Joining us all the way from Italy, we welcome author and creator Gilbert Gallo to talk about his upcoming comic 'Sancta Sactorum' currently running on Indiegogo until November 4th.

This graphic novel faces strong themes like faith, religion and gives a new, modern, fast and furious view of some of the most important heroes in human history: the Saints. Our main characters are not "perfect" Saints, but "imperfect" human sinners instead, who can wield the miracles hidden in the Holy Relics. They are called the Martyrs. The Saints of the new Church persecute the Martyrs as dangerous heretics and claim one of them is the Antichrist in disguise. The Martyrs on the other hand wish to stop the Patriarch from erasing all human sinners from the Earth along with Demons. Who's right? Who's wrong? If your a fan of 'Preacher' or 'The Da Vinci Code' then this book is for you!

In this weeks 'Retro Roundtable' we discuss one of Marvel's most vicious heroes, Wolverine. We touch on the ups and downs of Wolverine in cinema, what appeals to us about the character, and the release of the new 'Logan' teaser poster. This is one episode you won't want to miss, Bub!

He decided to make it happen in 2010.

In 2015, the Cincinnati Comic Expo proved to be the largest to-date with 24,000 individuals passing through the convention center over the 3 day event!
