  1. sounds like this is going to be a great series, adding it to my pull list for sure.

  2. I was lucky enough to get a preview of this issue. I can tell you 100% for sure that you don’t want to miss this. Jeff is building something rare in comics today. A fun series that is building to big stuff, but is a total blast with fun comic book payoff in each issue.

  3. I’m glad you asked about Krypto! Definitely interested,

  4. Cool, looking forward to this series
  5. I so love these "Don’t Miss" podcasts.  Almost always convinces me to try out the books when I hadn’t already planned on getting them.  Thanks!


    P.S. was that a dog crying/whining throughout the the podcast? There was some high-pitched noise that was comically driving my dog crazy! hehe…

  6. Yeah, we got a new dog last week and he wanted to talk to Jeff… And sit in my lap. He’s also a 60 lb pit bull.

    I turned off my channel when I wasn’t speaking, but you can still hear him anytime I was trying to speak. BAD DOG!!! 😉

  7. So Lori Luthor’s still going to be in there, and she’ll be a possible love interest?

    Uh…Lamire does remember they’re kinda related, right? I mean, I know that this takes place in an American small town, probably closer to the south, but Jeez! 

  8. Yeah, that’s ONE of the issues that Conner brings up.

    But you’re right. It is small town America. 😉

  9. Exactly what incriminating evidence does Lemire has on iFanboy? 

  10. have

  11. @edward: His fantastic body of work is evidence enough.

  12. Really looking forward to this series and this episode has only made me more excited. Great interview, Chris.

  13. Really excited for this book and it sounds like Lemire is going to be on this for some time. Thanks for the great interview.
