September 1, 2013 8:51 pm Thanks for everything, guys. I found iFanboy in late 2006 or early 2007, soon after I'd started reading comics, and tore through the archives, both audio and textual, learning more and more about the comics landscape as I did. You guys were instrumental in my comics education, and I never would have gotten my job at Marvel without the knowledge I gained and the friendships I made through this site. Seeing this chapter end soon after my own departure from Marvel is a sad one-two punch, but I wish you all the best of luck in all your future endeavors, and I look forward to continuing to listen.

June 1, 2012 10:33 pm Thanks, Paul, for the quick response and for the commitment to giving credit where it's due.
June 1, 2012 8:51 pm (That word should have been "extend," not "understand" -- my fault for hitting submit too quickly.)
June 1, 2012 8:50 pm The "internet" didn't produce this art -- individual artists did. Considering iFanboy is always so conscientious about crediting the artists of sketches and webcomics, I don't understand why the policy doesn't understand to other fanworks, just because someone has deemed them "weird" and posted them as mockable spectacle.
May 22, 2012 1:33 pm What I want to know is, why are Anole and Rockslide making eyes at each other?
February 7, 2012 7:11 pm Just wanted to mention that I really appreciate the attempts to be a bit more careful regarding gender-neutral language in these podcasts. I found the first few episodes a bit disheartening in the way they seemed to unconsciously imply that only men would be involved in this industry. People of all genders can use this kind of advice. :)
January 24, 2012 7:23 pm I'm not sure what's so bad about Living Lightning. A sparse record of past activities only means the character hasn't been given a fair chance. All it would take is one good writer to give him a decent story. And considering how many Avengers are straight white dudes, I'm really hesitant to just throw away a gay Latino character.
August 24, 2011 10:44 pm It is. If you go back to that page in Enemy of the State, Guedes was redrawing Romita's scene exactly. That was the intention. :)
August 24, 2011 5:48 pm I wrote the recap that's in this issue, but I also did the ballooning (laying out a guideline for the letterer), so I read this script awhile ago, during my summer internship. After I was done, I actually had to sit back and take a few deep breaths because I was so viscerally horrified, and then I immediately went to tell the editors how effective it was. It's a truly brilliant issue, and Jason Aaron deserves all the credit you've given him here. The final moment with the young boy at the end, too, is a secondary gut punch -- in an issue that almost didn't need anything other than Logan's devastation -- and it's a credit to Aaron's talent that he pulls off both.
