I don't mean to be the only dissenting voice - but I won't miss the mini's.  My relationship with my ipod is purely aural - I love hearing the normal show, but I did not feel seeing the guys chatting to be was adding to experience.  Longer shows can have some merit mind you - just the 3 minute mini's just did not fill my ifanboy needs!

 I look forward to what is coming next.

 I also would like to support the show via .co.uk!

@ultimatehoratio - Quite right - how did I forget.  I though he was fabulous

@PaulMontgomery - well that's a precedent set then!  But will there be a non-corefanboy episode before #200???

So looking forward to picking this up tomorrow.  THis has been such a guilty pleasure - easily the best thing Mark Millar has done since his under-rated Swamp Thing.

 Of course it has been mooted for years - and he was trying to do it Fummetti style - I don't thing those amazing Single Panel pages would have worked so well that way

September 25, 2008 2:06 pm oh and another thing - we have had Sonia, Paul and Gordon guesting (and I think I have forgotten another regular - and there were episodes with Augie and Tom K) - do we now have a chance that one day a podcast will be hosted by a legion of substitute fanboys?  Or is there an unwritten rule that 2 of the 3 must remain?

Just wonderful to hear a female and English voice on a comics podcast.  And with a potty mouth too - perfect!

As for the accent - it seems all English girls in the states absorb some strange phrasing I don't know about you but Jane Leeves developed quite the strangest accent - but I guess all the Frasier fans assumed that was a true Mancunian accent

Ahh Black Hole.  I used to get copies of this on my occasional trips into London to do the rounds of the Comic Shops.  I used to love Charles Burns art, so this was just a buy on sight.  Thing was, my visits were so infrequent I just had a very spotty issue here and there.  They were lovely with thick shiney covers.  And silly old me - I did not realise there was a continuing story - I just assumed that they were unconnected vingettes occuping a shared universe.

 Last year I bought the lovely hardback edition, but just never got around to it.  So looks like it has gone to the top of my Trades Stack!
