It’s the first really big week for Marvel Now! and that means not one, not two, but FIVE new books to look at … This week we investigate Avengers Assemble #9, Fantastic Four #1, Thor: God Of Thunder #1, All-New X-Men #1, and X-Men: Legacy #1 – and present another TWO interviews for your listening pleasure.

First up, we chat with up-and-coming writer Simon Spurrier (X-Club, Crossed) about his first ongoing Marvel gig and what plans he has for X-Men: Legacy long-term. Then Taylor catches up with Liam Sharp and Ben Abernathy, two of the key creative minds behind the app that’s more than an app, Madefire.

It’s a jam-packed episode, but would you expect anything less?! To get in touch, discuss sponsorship opportunities or submit projects for consideration, please email reviews@popculturehound.com. You can also follow me on Twitter: @popculturehound.
