Bob Bretall of Comic Spectrum (Guinness World Record holder for largest comic book collection) hangs out for a little bit of Guinness chat, and a lotta bit of comics talk! How many comics does Bob actually have, and how long has he been collecting? What was his first comic? What's his advice to someone who's never been to a comic shop? What game show has he been on? Variant covers vs. chase covers and graphic novels vs. trade paperbacks. Oh yeah, What did Shane think of Solo: A Star Wars Story? Punch it and find out... 'nuff said!
