Originally Aired: 05/03/19 – We preview Free Comic Book Day with Petula Neale and Kris Johnson. We talk with actor Emily Haine of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. All that plus the news of the week.

Show Notes:

We talk the news of the week. Scientists in England have successfully created single-use plastic with lobster shells. Disney+ looking to reunite the original cast and director Ron Howard for a Willow series.

We speak with actor Emily Haine. Emily can currently be seen as Elspeth in part 2 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. She talks about the show and more! Emily Haine is a born artist with an abundance of emotion begging to be let loose on screen. From a young age she became obsessed with the talent she would see on screen and often sought out the magic in film and the raw vulnerability of expression. She appeared in The CW’s “The 100” and “Supernatural” before booking the role of oddball Noreen Vanderslice in the critically acclaimed FX miniseries “Fargo”. Emily has appeared on the big screen in the Marvel hit DEADPOOL, the Jason Reitman comedy TULLY and Canadian indie GREGOIRE. On the small screen she has worked on The CW’s “Supergirl”, SYFY’s “Van Helsing”and in CBC/SundanceTV’s “Unspeakable”.

But that’s not all. It’s that time of year again! Free Comic Book Day, an annual event at your local comic shop, is happening Saturday, May 4th. (May the 4th be with you!) 51 free comic titles are available at comic stores across the world on the first Saturday in May every year!
