Let's meet our guest, shall we?

Dennis Hopeless is a writer for Marvel Comics, currently wrapping up "Avengers Undercover" and about to launch "Spider-Woman." Dennis previously wrote "Avengers Arena," "X-Men Season One," "Legion of Monsters," and "Cable and the X-Men" for Marvel, "The Answer" for Dark Horse, and "LoveSTRUCK" and "GearHead" for Image. You can find him on his website, or follow him on Twitter (@HopelessDent).

As always, your hosts are:

Brian Salvatore – New Jerseyan, New York Mets enthusiast, host of “Input/Output,” a music podcast, and occasional blogger/freelance writer. He has never met a dog he didn’t like (even that one that bit his leg when he was 10), and has baked better bread than he ever thought possible.

Chad Bowers – South Carolinian, GI Joe enthusiast, co-writer of “Subatomic Party Girls" “Down Set Fight,” and “Awesome Hospital” with Chris Sims, and writer of “Monster Plus.” He teaches us cool expressions like “Oh, snakes!” and has a lot of opinions about barbeque.

Greg Matiasevich – Marylander, the Eastern seaboard’s most notable proponent of binding comic runs, and co-host of “Robots From Tomorrow,” a fantastic podcast on the Multiversity Podcast Network, co-hosted with our pal Mike Romeo. Greg loves his 80s Marvel and has a talent for always managing to find a Saturday press pass to New York Comic Con.
