  1. Nice show gents.

    I’m curious, either of you have a chance to read Tom King’s and Andy Kubert’s “Walmart” Superman story that dropped this week?

  2. Interesting stats on the Patron Pick. Personally I don’t vote for issue #1s. I want to hear ifanboy’s thoughts jumping on established series, especially when jumping in the middle of a series. Patron Pick I remember most is your joy about a random issue of Thanos. Based on that enthusiasm I’ve got it on my Marvel Unlimited queue to read the series.

  3. Just read Murder Falcon 1 because of your review and wow. I’m in. The plot would’ve normally qualified this as a hard pass from me but… wow. That was… really good.

  4. I haven’t been reading Catwoman, but I came across this and though it was a little interesting! https://i.redd.it/5neby4ce5or11.jpg

  5. Wasn’t it Amazing Spider-Man #7 that just came out this week? Also, what happened to the Kraven reveal in issue #5 (I think?) ?

    I feel like I’m going crazy. Kraven appeared and then nothing ever came of it. Did I miss an issue?

  6. …glut of “comic book” movies?
    you guys, of course mean “super-hero” movies, common mistake, I make it myself all the time.

    It does point to a reason, however, for your other error from the podcast (which, I guess, is my new pet peeve that I’m stuck posting about ever month) that the “comic book market is shrinking”.

    You, of course, also meant the “comic book shop” market is shrinking. And since that market is dominated by super heroes…

    The book market (graphic novels) and digital (web comics of all types(webtoons, etc.), not comixology) are growing:

    Raina Telgemeier’s new book “Guts” was recently announced with a 1 million book first print run:

    Dav Pilkey’s “Dog Man”…3 million print run and selling.

    What you guys keep referring to when you speak about capital “C” comic books (i.e. kinda things reviewed on your podcast), are now just a part of the total overall comic book market (especially when looking at units sold).

    The comic book market isn’t shrinking, per se, it’s changing.

    (excited yelling, not angry yelling.)

    Since you balked at “My Favorite Thing is Monsters”…you could at least try to eat some vegetables…delicious vegetables…Yum. Murder mystery with a dash of paranoia and social insight.

    and remember to floss.
