Listen to Episode 87 of the Two-Headed Nerd Comicast….if you DARE!!!

This week, in our Second Annual Halloween Metal Show, we discuss Rob Liefeld’s un-retirement from comics, the return of Joe Madureira, and Dan Slott’s carelessly revealed (or carefully planned) spoiler for Superior Spider-Man.

Plus, we Take A Look cuz It’s in a Book with our review of the Image Comics Severed hardcover by Scott Snyder, Scott Tuft, and Attila Futaki!

This week’s Shout-Out went to Tab Carson, who shotgunned every episode of THN and lived to tell the tale! Then, she still liked us enough to give the show a nice write up on her blog. Check out the write up HERE and be sure to check out the rest of Tab’s Internet musings HERE.
