August 29, 2013 9:21 pm I believe Bendis said that once this series is done Laura is joining the cast of one of his X-Titles, which is probably the closest all 10 of us (The remaining X-23 Fans) are going to get to another ongoing for a while :(
August 18, 2013 5:01 pm Fantastic show this week, I love weeks where every book discussed is one I actually read. As a side note, if a weird alternate reality existed where you guys had time for another podcast, I would totally listen to you guys explain books that people aren't reading to them ala Avengers Arena to Mike this week. Keep up the awesome work!

May 28, 2013 2:21 pm Beyond excited for this, the horror landscape has been sadly bare these past few months.

August 17, 2012 6:06 pm There are very few reasons that would make me stop reading this book. But killing off mark would be one of them. I just have not enjoyed the Bulletproof-as-Invincible material thus far. I've read damn near 100 issues of Mark over the last, what has it been, 9 years? Without mark as the main character I don't think I'd be motivated to continue buying the title. Unless of course it became an Allen-Centric book
February 8, 2012 3:39 am I think there is truth behind some of these younger readers not getting in the Alan Moore camp. Myself only being 22, I can speak "in the know," if you will. In my opinion Watchmen isn't over-rated, it's undeniably a great piece of literature. I've even studied it in a few English courses I've taken in the course of my Major, along with Titles such as Maus, American Born Chinese, and 100 Bullets. What I think Watchmen is, is outdated. To some, this comes across as the paranoid ravings of an embittered old man, but taken as a period piece it's really excellent, much like V for Vendetta. However it has lost a lot of its "oomph" over the years. That said it's still one of the top selling books in the LCS I work at. Passing by all of that, Neonomicon, in my opinion, was a poor attempt at the Lovecraftian Style, and a book I had absolutely no interest in reading by halfway through. Best comic author of all time? My pick goes to Neil Gaiman. Up and comers? Scott Snyder and Robert Kirkman.
