Plus, we go back in time and discuss LAST WEEK’s incoming trades as well as THIS WEEK’s thanks to the powers of Chronokinesis!! (AKA the Internet).  We also have a big talk of what Iron Man has been going through in the Marvel Universe as well as where he is going! LISTEN IF YOU DARE!!!

Welcome to part 2 of Scaretober, MUAHAHAHAHAHA! This week the boys trade opinions over Marvel Zombies, as in the entire concept (including the Army of Darkness Spin-off), can you survive? There will be blood, and heads will roll, and <insert cliche’ horror tagline> as they also discuss the Horror Genre in books and film, as well as the rise of the Zombie genre. Plus,  Alex hints at a possible European invasion, Sam and Mike discuss their favorite manga (a potential episode?????), and all your usual rants, jokes, and culturally incorrect jabberings! It’s everything you enjoy about the Mild Mannered podcast, plus ZOMBIES! Listen Now!
