Okay… this looks bad. Sure William is still out of town but don’t worry, Dane and Vactor are here to bring you this week’s trade-themed review show. With the Kick-Ass 2 trailer hitting this week (pun totally intended) Vactor brings in Hit-Girl Volume 1 to talk about which somehow leads into a discussion of Mark Waid’s Daredevil Volume 4 and before you can say “pizza dog” Dane is monologuing about Hawkeye Volume 1 trade paperback (again? again!).

Written by comic’s newest heavyweight hitter, Chris Roberson, and with a first issue painted front to back by the legendary Alex Ross, there is no doubt Dynamite has assembled one of the top creative teams possible. So how does this comic book dream team fare?
