    Hm, no mention of Daredevil #15?

  2. Heysideburns Heysideburns says:

    Woodland, CA getting represented on iFanboy! Thought i was the only one on here.

    • Josh Flanagan Josh Flanagan (@jaflanagan) says:

      Is it the same as Woodland Hills? Because I used to go to the mall there all the time. Or is it Robert Evans’ house, Woodland, because that shit is dope.

    • Heysideburns Heysideburns says:

      Haha nah, it’s a little town right next to Sacramento. That’s why I was surprised to hear it on your podcast. We get mistaken for Woodland Hills all the time.

    • MaxPower MaxPower says:

      @Heysideburns Woodland, CA with 2 proud iFanbase members! We may not have comic shops, but we’ve always got Ludy’s BBQ!
      @Josh I didn’t want to live in a replica of Robert’s house. I wanted the real thing. I got together with Geroge Hamilton, who I called Georgie at the time, and over lunch we had ourselves a picture. Now, 35 years later, he has a tan and I lie outside of Sacramento.
      Also, thanks very much for answering my question on the show guys, I appreciated the input and will take the advice to heart. I’ve actually been reading through the Spider-Man Omnibus vol 2 and been thoroughly enjoying it by simply ignoring most caption boxes and focusing on Romita’s mastery.

  3. HailScott HailScott says:

    I’ve been enjoying Hell on Earth as well, but I miss Johann, Abe, and Liz.

  4. tomdpimp tomdpimp says:

    What other cons you guys going to be at?

  5. RahUniQue RahUniQue says:

    Forbidden Planet in NYC is NOT a good shop for service. The people who work there are rude, nasty hipsters who act like you’re bothering them when you ask them for help. EVERY time I’ve gone in there I’ve experienced brusque behavior. MIdtown [ especially the Downtown store on Fulton Street ] is filled with friendly, helpful people. And NO I don’t work for Midtown. This is just my experience.

  6. Mart Mart says:

    I didn’t think the Whichever Kubert art in the latest Avengers vs X-Men was bad … certainly it was miles less wonky than the illoes in the first two issues.

  7. LostArtist LostArtist says:

    I liked the art on the new Captain Marvel book, on the inside, I agree that the cover was so very very divergent from the inside art, it was like the reverse of how it usually is, usually (historically) the cover is all painted and fancy and the inside gets the clean and classic treatment.

    the inside art reminded me of Mark Texeira.
