    August 25, 2019 5:54 pm Just realised Once and Future was last week! Therefore the question would have been more appropriate last episode.
    August 25, 2019 5:49 pm Looking forward to the booksplode! Something I actually own, so will reread prior to listening. In your discussion on shocking villains I started thinking about good reappearances of C-list villains, where a writer did something very interesting. My mind jumped to Alias (perhaps as you referenced it) and Bendis' use of Purple Man. Shocking how sinister Bendis made him. I was looking forward to your take on Once and Future. Did you read and not feel worth talking about (or not read)?
    June 20, 2019 4:10 pm Great Talksplode! How likable is Tom King? I loved the story on Mr Miracle's genesis.
    May 30, 2019 5:11 pm I finished my reread on Monday and have been eagerly awaiting this booksplode. Born Again is great, and I loved your enthusiasm. I appreciated that Conor called out the great J Jonah Jameson page - he came across very well. I had a similar feeling about the brief Gladiator appearance, and how he didn't want to make the Daredevil costume until Matt gave permission. "With a voice that could command a God And Does." "There is no corpse. There is no corpse. There is no corpse." I know Josh was exaggerating, but I'm confident you can find something for the next booksplode that isn't pointless. Maybe a re-read of a favourite from the video show era? Something like Daytripper? Or of course you could cut your pull list and do a reread of 60 issues of Scalped!
    May 13, 2019 3:08 am Your discussion about Excellence intrigued me enough I bought the issue digitally and paused the show to read it. Great first issue, and I've subscribed to the series. Vast majority of my comics reading is trades, and it's a rare occurence that I try a new series so immediately based on a recomendation/review, but whatever you said worked, so thanks!
    February 10, 2019 11:58 am I don't think you have dropped off The Seeds - David Aja series. I'm trade waiting it and only 2 issues of a 4 issue mini have come out so far. Enjoyed the Vertigo conversation. I have lots of them on my 'to read' list as Scalped / DMZ is my era. Currently backtracking and reading a Preacher trade every 3 months. Love it!
    December 26, 2018 8:26 am I've just watched a couple of episodes of The Toys That Made Us. It's not surprising I enjoy an episode on Star Wars, a franchise I'm invested in, but I can't believe how engrossed I am in the history of Barbie. Thanks for recommending it (again, you've recommended before, but this time I listened!)
    October 14, 2018 1:59 pm 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.
    September 9, 2018 5:15 pm Ryan from UK here - thanks for answering my questions. I selected Criminal to convert alternate me to comics, but Ryan Haupt gave a better answer in Gotham Central for Conor: it gives me idea for #700's question! Interesting that all the choices debuted some time ago: Astro City 1995 (23 years), Transmetropolitan 1997 (21 years) and Gotham Central 2002 (16 years). With Bryan G's question about opening a comic shop - you missed an opportunity to bring up another running gag for Steve H: Ron's comic shop!
