This is it! The season finale of Drinking w/ Comics! Lots of great stuff to talk about – our survey, the death of Wolverine, Warren Ellis’ Supreme Blue Rose. Oh, and 1988′s Epic Comics’ Prestige Format mini series Havok and Wolverine: Meltdown. Also, we take a serious look at the top ten Marvel books ranked in the new free Marvel 75th Anniversary Magazine (available at your local comic book store). What’s number 10? What’s number 3? What’s #1? Mike and Shawn run the list down and tell you if they agree.

Oh, and what the hell is that cube sitting on the desk?

This issue Mike and Shawn are joined on camera by the Action Figure Insider himself, renowned toy expert Daniel Pickett.

The crew also gets a fantastic flashback pic from Daniel in the form of Piranha Press’ Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children (specifically the infamous A Cotton Candy Autopsy) and Mike talks about The Comic Bug’s forthcoming new, second location in Culver City!!! All while enjoying Double Take Brewing’s Belgian White Ale.

Also, science Officer Sara offers up Buzzfeed’s list of top indie comics – which leads to a discussion on just what exactly ‘indie’ is. From we go into Bill Sienkiewicz’s Stray Toasters and Paul Gulacy’s art on Master of Kung Fu. Mike rounds it out by giving us the secret origin of the GIJOE franchise.

Oh, and speaking of RR, the ongoing drinking game that revolves around the mention of his name goes haywire!
