Time to rest on our laurels, right? Time to stay stagnant, and not change anything ever, right? Wrong, nerds! We’re talking about how that other long-running thing, comics, have tried to change things p with characters and stories over the years, in an effort to “stay fresh.” What’s worked, what failed miserably? And how much would you pay for a second ongoing Saga book?

Plus: we cast the, uh, cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia  as the Fantastic Four, and we celebrate Ash Wednesday! All of this, live, from our castle in the sky.
