    You guys sound like you smoked a carton apeice, drank whiskey all night, and DJ’d 3 parties.  It was awkwardly sexy;)

  3. 1SinMuse 1SinMuse says:

    Wow, I give you guys props. You sound like wary soldiers about to imbark in one last, likely suicidal, battle befor the war is over.  Yet you give us moments of your fleeting time to us, who failed to go to war.  For this I salute you… and laugh slightly at your grizzled voices.

    Nice episode.

  6. ghettojourno ghettojourno says:

    wow. no Legion of 3 Worlds. I guess you guys really didn’t care for it.

  7. I don’t think they’ve read any other Legion Books. Ever.

  8. Paul Montgomery PaulMontgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    I know Conor liked the Superman and the Legion of Superheroes arc on Action Comics. At least one issue was POW. 

    Legion rules. Can’t wait for Adventure Comics! 

  9. Tork Tork says:

    Big ups to Caleb on show notes.

  10. yamiangie yamiangie says:

    We don’t want Bale to runin his voice?

  11. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    I’m a big fan of LEGION OF 3 WORLDS. But you can’t talk about every book in the show.

  12. Jim Jim says:

    Flipping the pages near the microphone: the new fingernails on chalkboard.

  13. yamiangie yamiangie says:

    I thought it was interesting to hear them looing at the comics while one of them talks

  14. Jeff Reid JeffR (@JeffRReid) says:

    Nice works, guys.  Thanks for getting this podcast done.  I just assumed that Paul would have had to do it alone or something.  Didn’t think you’d all find the time to record this yesterday.

    I didn’t mind so much the nearly constant flipping of comics pages near the beginning of the podcast.  It added versimilitude.

    Oh, and Jimski (at least, I’m pretty sure it was Jimski) calling out Conor and Ron for ignoring Josh’s JACK OF FABLES discussion was great.

    Thanks for busting your butts this week!  I’m looking forward to seeing the video shows that come out of all this. 

  15. WonderManFan WonderManFan says:

    Very good show, guys. Ron wins the award of “Founding ifanboy Member Who Sounds The Least Like Death.” I loved the “Green isn’t primary” interjection. Also, did someone mention that Stryfe made an appearance in Captain Britain? This episode had a sense of urgency mixed with humor, which made it even better. One last question for anybody reading Guardians of the Galaxy: when the early 90′s Guardians of the Galaxy showed up in this weeks issue, was Hollywood (an alternate future Wonderman) with them?

  16. BenBugenig BenBugenig says:

    Who kept turning pages in the beginning!? That was kind of annoying when I’m listening to it with headphones.

    Great podcast though!

  17. mikegraham6 mikegraham6 says:

    No guest spot for Paul? i guess he didn’t make it to SD in time?

  18. Jim Jim says:

    @BenBugenig- yep, the headphones magnify the page-flipping to excruciating levels.

  19. AmirCat AmirCat says:

    This is awesome. Thank you for being troopers after a rough night (hope fun) and doing the show for us.

  20. edward says:

    ha ha. fables

  21. AmirCat AmirCat says:

    @CalebTheTimeTraveler

    Thanks!

  22. eagle6002 eagle6002 says:

    Damn… I was looking forward to a Paul-only show

  23. stuclach stuclach says:

    @Josh – I totally agree with you on Jack of Fables. This was a return to the very fun stories of the early issues. I couldn’t tell Willingham and Sturges weren’t writing it.

  24. Y’know, I’ma  huge fan of Peter Milligan (it’s where I get my screen name) and I have to say I’m not liking his HB run. His John is too scummy for me. Or more accurately He’s too scummy in the wrong sort of way.

  25. g0ofgnewt g0ofgnewt says:

    Great show guys. You sound like you’re hurting inside.

  26. All that partying will catch up eventually.

    I’m only on the 2nd minute of this and you all sound like your gonna die. I can’t wait to go to SDCC one day…

  27. Sorry for the double post, but I got a great idea!

    You guys should go to director Todd Phillips and pitch yourselves to be the lead actors for ‘Hangover 2: San Diego Comic-Con’

  28. drakedangerz drakedangerz says:

    The extent of Atom Eve’s powers, and the reason she can’t modify people, is explained in the Invincible Presents: Atom Eve 2 issue mini that came out some time ago.  More than likely Kirkman will touch on those points in the next issue.

    Good show, even with Jimski’s Invincible hating :P

     

  29. @Drake: DUH!!! :)

  30. Jim Mroczkowski Jimski (@jimski) says:

    AH!

    The illustrator of the 1900s Oz books was John R. Neill, not Kevin O’Neill (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). Important difference.

    Tired.

  31. rayclark rayclark says:

    good podcast =)

  32. Garrett Garrett says:

    I got a sore throat just listening to the show. Get some hot water with lemon and honey, boys.

  33. captbastrd captbastrd says:

    I disagree with Jimski’s assertion that Invincible’s headbutts wouldn’t cause that kind of damage. The point where Mark’s head is making contact appears to be the very top of his head, above the forehead, which is the hardest part of the skull (when I used to ‘wrassle’, it was where one was taught to aim chairshots since it has the least risk of causing one to sound like the average wrestler in real life conversation). He’s headbutting Conquest’s face, basically the softest spot of the head. I don’t think there’s a logic problem as far as the outcome of his repeatedly headbutting Conquest’s face off.

    Plus, what else is he supposed to do? Every appendage on him was turned to red paint.

  34. Jim Mroczkowski Jimski (@jimski) says:

    Plus, and this is very often neglected, Viltrumite milk. It does a body good, which in turn does another body very, very bad.

  35. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    Haven’t gotten a chance to download the show yet, but I just wanted to mention my appreciation for this week’s pick and Conor’s review — I wouldn’t have picked up Spider-Man without such a glowing review but I did and it was excellent.  A truly deserving landmark issue; Slott did a great job with all the supporting characters, and even the backups were universally terrific.  Thanks!

  36. MisterJ says:

    @captbastrd

    Repeated knees to the groin!!  That’s what he could have done.  All kidding aside, it isn’t too big a leap in comic book logic.

    Thanks for the dilligence in getting the show out guys!

  37. JonCrites JonCrites says:

    Dude, the iFanboys need to mix in a little agua at the Con.

  38. @MisterJ: Do you really want that? You thought headbutting was bloody….

    *closes legs* I dont wanna think about it!!! >_<

  39. SilverAgeTom SilverAgeTom says:

    @Josh @Conor @Ron Great to see you at the party. See ya next year.

  40. Crucio Crucio says:

    @CaptBastrd: You beat me to it. I was also going to point out the whole difference in strength from the upper forehead to the face. It’s actually very effective at crushing bone. Particularly bridge of the nose and orbital sockets. They’re strong but in comparison to the forehead they won’t hold up.

    Good Show! 

  41. cromulent cromulent says:

    I suggest next comic con you guys hire people to do all the talking for you and save your voices for the podcast!

  42. Mart Mart says:

    Well done for taking time out from sleep to put together a fun podcast. Are you kipping now?

  43. Ali Colluccio WonderAli (@WonderAli) says:

    Thank you so much for putting together the POW show on top of all the other coverage of the con. You guys are awesome!

    and I agree with @vadamowens, the scratchy, gravely voices are kinda hot. You should lose your voices every week :)

  44. kwisdumb kwisdumb says:

    Awesome, thanks guys!

  45. Good intro tune, and fun dining blog the other day.  Great to hear this blog as well.  <3

  46. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @spiderphilman: It’s a podcast, not a blog.  :-)

  47. Great show guys. The Party at Tivoli was epic and it was great to meet all of you.

  48. jackietam jackietam says:

    Best. Episode. EVAR!

  49. Eyun Eyun says:

    Anyone annoyed at the lack of a video show this week… listen to how wrecked these guys sound. I almost prefer these kinda shows, it’s like listening to people talking the morning a reeeeaally heavy party.

    Great show. And Phonogram is awesome.

  50. I can’t say I was annoyed at their Anti Video this week.

    It took me till today to realize that they should have a new video up, so I’m not that ticked that there isn’t one. But If I went on last night and didn’t see one, I might have been more somewhat annoyed, if at all.

  51. Mangaman Mangaman says:

    You know what I’ve realized after reading Invincible 64 during the podcast?… Invincible is beginning to read like Dragon Ball Z or at least this arc.

  52. mikeandzod21 mikeandzod21 says:

    I find it funny that they say spider-man had more weight than green lantern, since the last issue of spider-man I read felt pointless.

  53. Jim Mroczkowski Jimski (@jimski) says:

    That is funny!

  54. Cool they actually put up my Notes.

    I feel important now!
