    October 2, 2017 12:07 am Not sticking with Enterprise was a mistake. The quality of original stories- acting and innovation was quite good especially compared to Discovery. A lot more Star Trek dna and heart. Ron and Conor should go back to it. The Enterprise novels had a great explanation for the more futuristic look of what was supposed to be older tech. In that the Romulans had created tech that could hijack and hike the more sophisticated Federation technology of Enterprise in so more simplistic- more isolated systems- TOS style were created to do the same things but it different harder to hijack ways. It works if you think about it.
    October 2, 2017 12:07 am Reed and Sue are off 're-creating' the multi-verse after Hickman took a big steaming crap on the Marvel universe with Secret Wars. Remember? The event concluding issue. I believe it was pick of the week - but does say something that - maybe a year later the three people who review comics professionally can't remember what happened in it. Man - that book was problems. We're still dealing with the effects of that creative tantrum. Is it me- or is Ron slowly steaming that More people aren't patrons? Seems to be coming through.

    September 24, 2017 3:55 pm I am happy Josh enjoyed this issue- or rather found a way to substantiate enjoying it. I Do appreciate the context and think that's a great story. Unfortunately this particular issue was Not. I found it disjointed and off voice for nearly everyone portrayed in it. I couldn't even finish it and I have been reading since the first issue. I see what Bendis was going for- I don't feel like he hit it.
    September 17, 2017 1:52 pm Ron is 100 on the POTW and his assessment of R2D2 as a whole. There is No underestimating R2's ability and utility. Period. Not sure why Conor finds the Robin costumes so incredulous unless just for comedy. This whole event is about another dimension why couldn't another Robin from a whole other layer of existence have that costume? Secret Empire failed b/c of the sheer gaudiness of it's ambition. It's the equivalent of stepping up to the plate and calling a home run - fu*king with Captain America like that. It doesn't matter if you get a second base hit if you fail in your goal with arrogance. I think for the very reason that Spencer seemed almost pathologically compelled to write and tweet and tweet and tweet and... tweet about the political climate in the US, there was an obvious and not always so well executed goal to write Steve Rogers as a politico strong man-Trumpian figure. That voice just wasn't believable. Often times the Steve Rogers 'doppleganger' came across as too simplistic -stupid and boorish to have ever pulled off a coup of this magnitude. And I get it it was largely Spencer's need to comment on trump- but the character and story suffered for it as a result. After all the Publisher and writer protestations of 'No No this Is Steve Rogers' to have it all resolve with a magical swipe of the hand just further exacerbates event fatigue.

    September 10, 2017 5:16 pm Even as well done as Busiek wrote here, the 'AND ONE WILL DIE!' plot device is just so tired. Killing an important character for pathos and sadness as a way to give a story weight and meaning. I'm just done with it. Again well done or not - I've read it- seen it way too many times for a good long time. Try something else.
    September 4, 2017 12:00 pm Infamous Iron Man has been a really good book. I support the 'turn' for Victor although I do think it's time for him to start kicking some ass- some. in the name of good though. But one small -but actually big complaint for issue 11 It's tough for some writers to know when to pull back from a pop culture crossing the line but Dr. Strange saying -"I'm in the zone- Autozone"- Don't. Just don't Stop Writing Dr. Strange like Tony Stark!
    August 29, 2017 6:54 am I appreciate your enjoyment for those shows and if they were going for a 60's Batman camp on purpose I would have more respect. Instead they are achieving it through 'comically' over the top dialogue, cut corner production standards and a rampant disregard for any kind of grounding principle. The time travel fuckups alone are mind boggling. Every sci fi show has to live by some rules- it's own rules at least and Legends especially seems to make up new ones every week. Arroow- I can't say anymore it's been a while since I watched an episode but the first one s I did see made my mom's soap opera look like an Oscar parade. This is Joel Schmacher all over again. If you found a way to enjoy - that's great. This is all subjective but I would be interested in hearing why you think it is remotely objectively 'Good'
    August 27, 2017 6:56 pm Why does the Manhunter look so much like the GL Manhunters? This is my question for #Episode600 Why do SO Many comics readers have trouble pronouncing basic words and character names/creator names when they are by default quite literary? I mean it's astounding - podcast hosts- readers- shop owners- it just doesn't stop from Magnetto- to Assgard- to K-Mandee the list is almost endless. And no matter how many times these intelligent people learn and re-learn the correct pronunciation very little seems to stick. I welcome your theories.
