Our hosts take a look at the 68 page Giant Size Defenders #2! Wow! That's a lot of pages! Fortunately, Hub and Cory have a lot of beverages to accompany their reading.

Topics of discussion include: Um, I don't really remember. Three Manhattans (and a drink a baby would like) turns out to be quite a bit of alcohol. I think there was something about sharks.
