As is usual for the Last Geek in Space podcast, they select the comics, magazines and artwork they’d take with them on a trip into space. But before they go, they share a number of stories about their time working for Marvel and Panini – including the infamous Doctor Who Magazine bomb incident, an exceptionally drunken Colombian house boat party and what it’s like to be a woman working in the publishing business.

If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the doors of a comic company – here’s where you find out!
