Fred Hembeck's House of Hem

Legendary creator Fred Hembeck teams up with our heroes in this extra special double sized episode to talk about his upcoming book, House of Hem, collecting some of his most memorable work for Marvel Comics. He also shares stories about his early career, upcoming variant covers, the true story behind Fred Hembeck Destroys The Marvel Universe, sketch cards (and which request almost drove him to the brink of madness), and ill-fated collaborations with Stan Lee. And, of course, Tony brings the discussion to a screeching halt...more than once!!!

We apologize for the audio problems experienced during the recording of the show. We hope the content more than makes up for it.
