    Great show – I’ll have to give the ‘Lone Ranger’ one-shot a go, I gave up on the on-going because the story was so decompressed it got ridiculous.

    Also, not to go on and on about it, ;) but the reason Dan Abnett writes cool science in ‘Nova’ may be partly because he writes cool sci-fi thrills week-in, week-out in 2K (and has done for the last 15 years or so).

     Looking forward to ifanboy mini! Do you guys ever sleep ???

    Good song this week.

    Great show — good to have Conor back and (mostly?) con-plague free.

    I was curious how Conor would react to "Mighty Avengers" with his avowed distaste for Silver Age style in contemporary comics.  Was this enough of a spoof that it worked anyway, or is it just that the awesomeiness of Iron Man-Doom buddy-comedy trumps all else?

    Also, Ron — I hate to be that kind of Whedon fan, but you should watch the "Serenity" movie!  Before somebody on the Internetz spoils it for you! 

  4. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @ohcaroline – The only thing that was silver age style about MIGHTY AVENGERS was the production.  Everything else was purely modern.

  5. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    @conor - Point taken, and I guess it’s not so much ‘silver age’ as ‘circa 1983.’  Whatever you call that era.
