  1. Great show – I’ll have to give the ‘Lone Ranger’ one-shot a go, I gave up on the on-going because the story was so decompressed it got ridiculous.

    Also, not to go on and on about it, 😉 but the reason Dan Abnett writes cool science in ‘Nova’ may be partly because he writes cool sci-fi thrills week-in, week-out in 2K (and has done for the last 15 years or so).

     Looking forward to ifanboy mini! Do you guys ever sleep ???

    Good song this week.

  3. Great show — good to have Conor back and (mostly?) con-plague free.

    I was curious how Conor would react to "Mighty Avengers" with his avowed distaste for Silver Age style in contemporary comics.  Was this enough of a spoof that it worked anyway, or is it just that the awesomeiness of Iron Man-Doom buddy-comedy trumps all else?

    Also, Ron — I hate to be that kind of Whedon fan, but you should watch the "Serenity" movie!  Before somebody on the Internetz spoils it for you! 

  4. @ohcaroline – The only thing that was silver age style about MIGHTY AVENGERS was the production.  Everything else was purely modern.

  5. @conor – Point taken, and I guess it’s not so much ‘silver age’ as ‘circa 1983.’  Whatever you call that era.
