By Molly Jane Kremer and Jarrod Jones. Happy New Comic Book Day! This is Casual Wednesdays With DoomRocket, where each week we discuss our feelings concerning the comics that mean the most to us, and the industry news that affects us all. This week, MJ & Jarrod are live at the inaugural RETCon Comic Convention here in Chicago. Then they share their Top 5 Most Anticipated Issues of the Week, and while they don’t assess any books, they do speak with three special guests — George Munoz, director of RETCon, Eisner award-winning artist Gene Ha, and ‘Victorie City’ writer, Keith Carmack. 

Don’t forget to share this podcast on the social network of your choosing, and please enjoy.
