Vaughan's Y: The Last Man making it to Amazon and FX, respectively (oh and not to mention Kurt Busiek's Astro City is in development for TV); picking up where we left off, thoughts about the new Rorschach in the Watchmen sequel, Doomsday Clock; shhh.....Agents of SHIELD may be getting a sixth season after all (as we deduced....you never know); and lastly, was it Blade, Dracula or Morbius?  comic book legend, Stan Lee's blood was allegedly stolen (what)....and more stories of disconcern about the icon.  Call in LIVE at 646-915-9620.
