    May 9, 2017 10:15 am There is almost never a Right or Wrong answer to this. It's personal and it's case by case.
    May 7, 2017 4:51 pm Every issue of the Flintsone can't be a direct pop culture translation. It makes it gimmicky. X-Men Gold is smarter and more satisfying. You are giving Bunn more credit than he is working for in Blue. And- they both have their things. But if you want classic X-Men for the feeling it is def Gold. I think Kirkman- based on your criteria Has- to be in bold be considered one of the best of all time. On your criteria. Impact- longevity- business effect. What title has been as popular or as influential for as long- as The Walking Dead- or Invincible and for that matter consistently good quality? The media impact is obvious. He has to be considered in the conversation and not reduced to his business manifesto.
    May 3, 2017 4:18 pm I admit that I enjoyed X-Men Blue #2 more, but Bunn continues to write Jean Grey with the voice and dialogue of an older British man. It's off putting.
    April 19, 2017 9:02 am The ad-versation - podcast commercials delivered in a 'casual conversational' style is an epidemic across a lot of podcasts right now. Paul Scheer - How Did This Get Made is probably the worst offender. On one hand it's nice to not have a break from formal copy and jingles etc but at this point it's becoming it's own tired formula and this 'conversation' ends up being longer than a traditional commercial. The sincerity is also drained from it when the easy going idea of talking about Harry's or whatever product sounds like a mini podcast. And again this is a trend in podcast advertising, and I have no doubt that the boys use and like Harry's - Great. But that could be more like- "Hey Harry's is great- I use it- really good stuff- Thanks for sponsoring the podcast" It feels more and mpre obvious that podcastsers are compromising the relationship with their listeners to play up to sponsors. At least in a traditional ad we know whats happening, this style can feel like a friend tricking you a bit. I am all for sponsorship and podcasters being able to make a living but I think this trend is beginning to wear on people.
    April 19, 2017 8:47 am Ha- Well if it worked for you that's cool. To me it was just too tongue in cheek and really messed with he delicate balance of when these original X-men actually are from. Bendis walked a fine line with nods to the original timeline and making it believable that they could be from say the 90's It worked- this to me did not. And your right- the art in this-- Jean looked weird and her dialogue was... So if you liked the Juggernaut- which is cool that you did, can you explain to me what those hoses are for? I mean it's not like it's Bane with venom or he's steam punk powered- I just don't get it.
    April 16, 2017 2:34 pm I have to disagree with Ron over X-Men Blue I think nostalgia is playing heavy hand in Ron's review. I don't you can call it really really good by any means. From Cyclops lamenting Brillcreame and real barber shops to Jean saying "the villian was brought to heel" They sound both old tymey and British. Just the wrong voices including the continuation of Beast the mystic. Juggernaut looked good? So those random hoses that are sticking out of this helmet for the first time and no reason at all - they are for what? After Bunn's Aquaman run and now this- I just don't feel like he can really zero on super hero comics. I want to believe in a fresh start for the X-Men too I really do. But Prime was a much better shot at it than this issue of Blue. I hope it gets better.
    April 10, 2017 12:58 pm Ahh- thanks for clarifying. IMO - while I would welcome an additional podcast I don't think that proposal would be an equal substitute for a hangout.
