BEST. ACMECAST. EVER.
This past week’s Acmecast #62 was our most successful episode in the show’s year plus history! This was the fastest downloaded show to date due in no small part to the support of our special guest, Joe Hill, writer of IDW’s Locke & Key!
We had a great conversation with Joe, geeked out over Doctor Who, and listened stories of Spider-man stuck in a port-a-potty between Godzilla’s toes, as told to Joe by Stephen King! A fantastic experience that we will all treasure!
Don’t be the last person to hear it! Listen NOW!
It is less than 100 days until Free Comic Book Day 2012!
