February 14, 2010 – We're all in house, talking about a big load of comics, giveaways, and our usual diversions. Come for the comics talk. Stay for the uncomfortably pregnancy jokes. New York was snowed in, but like the postal service, you can't stop comics!

00:12:18 – The spark of attraction was nailed in Daytripper #3.
00:16:57 – If they want to add more kids to the Parker household, we'd be cool with that, just like we are with Ultimate Spider-Man #7.
