As much as I love the X-Men, it's hard to get excited about a story where Wolverine and Cyclops fight each other.

This week on War Rocket Ajax, the incredible Jason Aaron joins ComicsAlliance's podcast to talk about what it's been like to work on Ghost Rider and Wolverine, and to take over as the writer of PunisherMax after a character-defining eight-year run -- and he does it all while risking his very life by being interviewed during a gas leak. And you can listen to the entire show right here at Comic
