Welcome to Episode 186 of the Two-Headed Nerd Comic Book Podcast!

This week, we discuss CM Punk’s foray into comic book writing, first week details of DC’s Convergence, and the latest…distressing news about the Fantastic Four film reboot.

Plus, we help a poor slacker named Ian keep the 90s alive in our Comics Pushers segment!
