    July 5, 2020 3:51 pm Casey created America Chavez he really loved the character at the time Marvel really didn't do anything with it- and I have read that really frustrated him. Sure the character has taken off since Casey swore off Marvel it seems kind of obvious he just wanted to play with that character again. I'm not sure what the confusion is as to 'Why?' Also if you want to feel like someone doesn't get teen speak read a Dennis 'Hopeless' book. All the words will be a thing- but it will really awkward and obvious.
    June 19, 2020 10:07 pm I think there is a tendency to look for a drop off when an artist gets older. I've hear it critiqued here often from everyone from Kevin Conroy (which was said almost 8 years ago) to Jack Kirby listening here. If you can legitimately show me where Jack's art "got worse" I would love to see that diagram. Carmen Herrrera, Kandinsky, DaVinci, Mark Rothko, Frank Lloyd-Wright all created some of their best work in their 50-60's and beyond that. And in Kirby's case at a volume that double or tripled most modern day artists who can't seem to manage one monthly book on time. Look I'm not saying it doesn't happen but some actually get better and don't fall to pieces. Jack Kirby at 55 is virtually any comic book artist today at 30.
    May 25, 2020 1:06 pm There have been a few of us here strongly suggesting that Injustice be given a chance. I have to admit it's been fairly frustrating lately to hear Josh and Conor 'discover' Tom Taylor when when was here all the long. As good as Deceased is- and it is. I honestly think Injustice was better. Aside needed service to the framework of the game's story This book was my New 52 Justice League, a fresh take on the characters while being true to the core of the characters. So- it's gratifying to hear it might be given a chance now. If somehow Taylor had somehow been given the regular Justice League book from the start it might have actually worked. Please make it a BookSplode.
    May 17, 2020 1:33 pm I really appreciate the show run down and the fact there are time stamps. I am very much enjoying the G.I.Joe corner but say if it I didn't as Ron points out it's easy to skip. There are comic book podcasts that I listen to that don't use a script or include show notes/time stamps not to name names but it occurs about an hour before midnight. Even though I really like most of that show there are times when I skip ahead and skip ahead and there's not way to know if it's enough to avoid a spoiler or a section of the episode I don't want to listen to. Kind of frustrating makes me appreciate the construction of this show all the more.
    May 3, 2020 7:10 pm Also- Dismantle the direct market and Diamond to help if not save the industry. It's really the only thing that hasn't been tried to 'move the needle' and rise of the Diamond s strangle hold coincides with the decline of sales in general outside of the speculation era. Comic shops can still sell books but let's face most of them now are making their money of toys and magic cards now so it's not even necessary to protect them as once thought.
    May 3, 2020 6:51 pm Whoa- Whoa Is Ron saying that the Star Wars:New Hope is better than The Empire Strikes Back??
    April 12, 2020 12:13 pm Very Enjoyabele episode. Well done Damian. And- just because Conor has mentioned it So Many times on almost OCD level. The X-Ment cartoon from the 90's Is NOT a bad cartoon. You Are Wrong about this. Does it have over dramatic points? Yes. Does it lean on soap opera elements too much at times- Yes. Is it surprisingly adept at creating an episodic narrative that take it's time for character development and pays attention to constructing a compelling and cohesive mythos all at the same time? That is answer is Yes as well. Let it go man - let it go. It's been 10 years of commenting on it. You didn't like that's cool. You don't need to tell us it's "ba"d anymore- You're the outlier and sometimes an outlier is correct despite that but this is not that time. ;-
    March 24, 2020 12:40 pm Have you tried calling out for them? Like- "Johnsonvillle Braaatttsss"
    March 3, 2020 4:20 pm It really is. One things- A little science goes a long way. A lot of science --
    March 3, 2020 4:19 pm I am underwhelmed by Bendis' work in DC so far. It's good - it's fine. The Superman reveal is writer's ego tring to make their Mark! And hey- it's great if the guys here are over celebrating his DC run and also truly enjoying it. One the duo has a long history of proclaiming his opinion as a kind of fact. After all it took years for him to let go of the POW as being "The Best Comic of the Week" Rather than his favorite. Point being Bendis' 'revival' and the relevancy of his DC work is subjective. And this viewer- Viewer is debatable- isn't stoked.
