MSP#77: Sex in Comics
In this issue: $3.99! Too much to pay for a comic… or FAR too much to pay for a comic? The mysterious troubadour revealed! Two men will enter, one man will leave, but both men will make more money than all three of us put together. Also on tap: News you can use, reviews to he’p you choose, the pop culture blues, Deadpool’s dancing shoes, ain’t go no Tom Cruise, and the dreaded Ess- Ee-Ecks gets dragged out of the backseat of the Yaris and into the light, as we look as Super Happy Adult Fun Time Activities in comic terms.

â€œHORROR BIZNESS,â€ Part 2 (of 2)
This is what Deadpool has to resort to, only days after single-handedly saving the entire planet from Skrulls? Oh, thatâ€™s rightâ€”nobody knows about thatâ€¦Deadpool didnâ€™t even want this job. But here he is anyway, in some dank corner of Eastern Europe, going toe-to-toe with an undead plastic surgeon and his flesh-eating clientele, contracted by the head of a greasy paramilitary unit to avenge the zombification of the guyâ€™s young, ex-model trophy wife — and all because Wadeâ€™s dead broke.

You know what would increase attendance at comic book conventions around the country? Cage matches. Not cage matches with the GLOW or those Octagon fighters, but epic battles between the Editor-in-Chiefs of the comic book publishing world.
Since the New York Comic Con is taking place this weekend, and since NYC is the supposed center of the universe, why not kick off these EIC Cage Match Battles with the head honchos from DC and Marvel.

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION
SEX IN COMICS
This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the crew tackles the subject of Sex in Comics – not sex on comics, because, well, we keep falling off (ba-dum-bum).
What do you think of the portrayal of sex in the funny books? What should be allowed, what shouldnâ€™t? How far is too far? What comics feature the best and the worst on the subject? Itâ€™s a topic that is deep, and one weâ€™ll attempt to tackle.
