    Is anybody else having trouble downloading the podcast?

  2. jackietam jackietam says:

    iTunes. Downloading the podcast is taking long than usual.

  3. Monty Monty says:

    The download is super slow.

  4. Monty Monty says:

    Now it’s fixed.

  5. Excellent show as always, fellas. I definitely had Thor as my pick of the week but She Hulk was up there for me as a contender.

  7. koryrosh koryrosh says:

    re:Andrew’s question. What about the flip-side? If you break up with your significant other because they *liked* a certain comic book (or related media item), what would it be? Namely, what display of just horrible taste would be worth breaking up for? e.g. if a girlfriend thought Episode 1 was the best of the Star Wars movies, she’s gotta go.

  8. koryrosh koryrosh says:

    Baneplay! HA! Classic.

  9. Enjoyed the relationship advice. But what did Conor mean when he said “it feels like a bag of sand when you’re touching it”? That’s just not true.

    I totally agree about how great the Mercenary Sea cover is. I pre-ordered based 100 percent on that cover. I also hope it doesn’t suddenly “pull a Zero” and introduce aliens or superpowers.

    Conor, I hope you’ll keep us posted on your Dark Knight Returns drama.

    China – Japanese war prior to the Second World War is referred to as the Second Sino – Japanese war ! :)

    Oscar – Have you ever considered that breaking up with your girlfriend has showed her that she needs to take a greater interest in her SO’s interests. Perhaps she learned a valuable lesson from your lost love and you should be happy she has grown as a person.

  12. Jeff Reid Jeff Reid (@JeffRReid) says:

    Fun episode, guys. Nice work.

  13. Mister Mister says:

    “I-I, y’know… I have done things.”

    I haven’t had a hearty belly-laugh in a while so thanks for that, Conor!

    Great show and pick this week, glad other people enjoyed “She Hulk” as much as I did. The relationship questions bit was a lot of fun, you should do that again next year!

  15. John42 John42 says:

    Josh, you got the Dan Savage inflection perfect! How you went up on the ‘up’ in “you broke up with her”. Nicely done.
