    I just read the third issue to John Byrne’s The High Ways. I was not a great fan of Byrne’s…

    December 26, 2016 4:23 am Go screw? WTF? Here's a news flash for you, Josh (and Ron). Ya'll are on a public forum yakking about a subjective art form like comics, music, TV shows, and the arts in general. You have a fucking public section for comments from the public to voice their opinion after your podcast. WTF are we all supposed to "group" think just like you and come on here and tell you how great each of your selections are and how tremendously great you fuckers are? Go screw you bitch and the horse you rode in on.
    December 19, 2016 9:38 am Good show though & I still enjoy Brubaker.
    December 19, 2016 9:36 am I thought The Nice Guys was a bore. I would have given The Neon Demon some props. Hamilton and A Tribe called Quest, meh not even worth mentioning. They were "popular" but mass consumption junk.
    January 17, 2016 2:29 pm Just started reading World of Krypton.
    January 11, 2016 3:08 pm I enjoyed the Swamp Thing.
    January 9, 2016 7:11 pm Re: UFO: Fargo: Spoiler--I read somewhere on the web that supposedly that area, similar to Nevada, Pacific Coast Highway, etc. was just a hotspot for sightings. So they stuck it in the show, but more than anything just some weirdness from the Coens. I loved it anyway.
    January 4, 2016 6:24 pm @ The Flash--that's all well and good, and like I said if it's your thing or the CW programming is your thing that's good too. Not everything has to be geared for an adult or mature mentality--you can make a show for teens or younger adults. It's just not for me. Plus not everybody that watches TV reads the comics from where they comes from. I don't read The Flash either. I just think from a believe-ability angle not having some older people in it is unbelievable (to me). Look at Christian Bale or the newer Ben Afflick in Batman, they are in their 40's. Is Batman that old in comics? Who knows? But they also had cameos by Alfred (Michael Caine) and Morgan Freeman.
    December 28, 2015 5:15 pm I don't know how ya'll do what you do, or how you cover what you cover. I can never listen, read, watch, hear, half of that. What gives?? TV-wise, I can't understand how anyone over the age of 18 would enjoy the Flash TV series. The casting is ridiculous--it hardly has anyone over the age of 40 in it, and the regular characters are around the age of 20-ish. What next a Power Pack TV show? But knock yourselves out. For that type thing I think Alias does it well or better than anything over network TV. Fargo was awesome though, among many. Mad Med ended well I thought, and Better Call Saul got off to a good start. Movie-wise I'm still playing catch up, but I'll go with these: Mad Max: Fury Road Scientology: Going Clear Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation Star Wars Best of Enemies Bridge of Spies Sicario Still need to see a bunch.
    November 29, 2015 3:15 pm Man, I'm behind in reading The Fade Out though I've enjoyed it. Just finished reading the graphic novel by Peter Kuper called Ruins. It's worth a read, as are his other comics. I don't think I've ever seen you mention him, but he's an independent comic creator I've enjoyed following throughout the years. I don't know if you're watching the Netflix created series, Jessica Jones, but I saw the first episode last night and enjoyed it. I think NF is one of those that gets super heroes right. I might also mention their anime, Knights of Sidonia, is fairly interesting too. Stock up on chicken soup. Hey get well soon.
    November 24, 2015 8:12 pm There was also Miller on Daredevil which brought back that character from being pretty mundane. Moore was also doing Swamp Think & Miracle Man. Morrison started doing Animal Man, and later his Doom Patrol run. Relauch of a great run on Justice League with Kevin McGuire. Neil Gaimen on Sandman began. Paul Chadiwck on Concrete. Mark Schultz on Xenozoir Tales. Grim Jack on First Comics. TMNT and many other black and white independents were being read. I remember the mid-80s pretty fondly.
