  1. About UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY – I was surprised to hear such a lukewarm review from you guys. Gorgeous to look at and also good storytelling with the art, I thought – the concept sure is compelling and my reaction was that I was reading an HBO-like episodic story – a near-future science fiction alternate history world-building ensemble piece (whew!). The back-story of each of the characters in the helicopter was organically blended into moving the story forward, instead of a data-dump out of a character’s mouth. I really enjoyed this – it made me ask the best question of all when I get into a good story: “what’s going to happen next?”

  2. Thanks to having to exist in the world as an actual human being, I’m falling down on my iFanperson-ness duties, so this posting is too late to matter, but…fun fact: electrical outlets were installed upside down to designate that they were connected to a light switch.

    Did everyone already know that?…well everyone does now…and by everyone I mean the future people who instead of downloading episode 708 of a weekly comic book podcast on a phone app use the internet to call up the website and then scroll down to look over old comments.
