  1. NathanNicdao NathanNicdao says:

    Ha! Scott Pilgrim week!

  2. Gabe Gabe says:

    Nick Spencer and Scott Snyder seem to be the 2 new up and comers of 2010

  3. Rbigley Rbigley says:

    Guys,

    I live in wisconsin, it ain’t no fantasy land.

  4. Thomas Katers ThomasKaters says:

    I am from Wisconsin…and I beg to differ.

  5. Ryn Ryn says:

    Thanks for reading my review guys! I mean, you didn’t agree, but you still read it, so awesome! Although, for future reference, I’m a female, not a "he", it’s Ryn short for Kathryn.

  6. @Ron- I think Sex & Violence suffers from the same thing that Avengers: Children’s Crusade does.  Kyle and Yost  started working on it a while ago, earlier in their X-Force run.  Continuity is a-okay.

  7. s1lentslayer s1lentslayer says:

    Superman walking the streets with no one tagging along makes no sense whatsoever.

  8. SpiderTitan SpiderTitan says:

    After reading this week’s Daredevil issue I would like to apologize to Andy Diggle for I may have come out a bit too harsh with my comments about last week’s Shadowland issue, b/c Daredevil 509 was a very solid read & it actually cleared up a good amount of stuff with the Shadowland event issues & the last Daredevil issue with Matt being "possessed" by it is a relief that it is not really much of the usual possession stories told by many writers before. So needless to say Andy Diggle has redeemed himself in my eyes & I am now confident in buying the trade of his first story arc on Daredevil & am definitely curious to see where he is going to be taking Matt Murdock on his run, b/c right now it things look pretty grim. Which is great to us Daredevil readers, maybe a bit sadistic? Aw well, keep up with the good stuff guys!

  9. "I feel like I wanna slap Superman…"

    Ironically, that’s what started this whole thing off.

  10. NawidA NawidA says:

    Cassaday’s covers have been pretty crappy for a while now. His covers for SWORD #1 and #2 did not help that book at all. 

    I actually blame him for that book bombing so hard. 

  11. froggulper says:

    @Ron: Yes, as ABirdsEyeView sorta said, that X-Force mini was written a while ago. Yost was on the Uncanny X-Cast a few episodes ago, and he said that it was written over a year ago, way before Wolvie got the gf in Aaron’s series. Let’s be honest, though, there’s no way he’s gonna stick with that girl anyway.

  12. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    "That’s outrageous."

  13. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    Great show.  I loved the Rushmore conversation.

    Thanks for featuring my review.  I don’t love everything about Shadowland but I think it’s a well-run event that deserves some attention.  

  14. Jeff Reid JeffR (@JeffRReid) says:

    Quick comment on the Rushmore discussion.

    When Conor was thinking of his four characters that’d be on his Rushmore, Tom jokingly said ‘Batman and the three Robins.’ I found this very interesting. Even with a year of Damian running around as Robin, it seems that the gut reaction from some people is that there have been three Robins. With all the time that Dick, Jason, and Tim put in as Robin, it makes sense why a person’s mind would think there’s been only three of them in a quick moment. I know that I’ve had that happen to me in the past year too. But as Damian shows, there have been more than just three.

    By the way, does anyone consider Stephanie Brown’s incredibly brief run as Robin to be ‘official?’ Do you think that makes Damian the fourth Robin or the fifth?

  15. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @JeffR: Yes, Stephanie was officially a Robin. Damian is Robin #5.

  16. fnord fnord says:

    Teddy Roosevelt absolutely belongs on Mount Rushmore, Ron.
