Come one, come all to the first edition of The Speech Bubble podcast. The show, hosted by The Thought Bubble's own Sean Curry and his comic-inclined friend Adam Dello Buono. In this episode, the boys discuss The Avengers, the harbinger of a geek-centric summer movie season. The boys go through the set-up for the Avengers and try to figure out how a movie with that many interests can work (and where did all the aliens come from!?). There are some spoilers ahead, but if you've ever sat next to a Marvel comic book at one time, you should be okay.
