September 2, 2013 2:41 am I heard about iFanboy in a side comment on another podcast. I haven't listened to that other podcast in at least 5 years, but I've been a loyal iFanboy listener since episode #100 something, and I've been a member for the past 2 years. This is the first and only website like this that I have paid for, because of all the sites on all the internets, this is the only one I've found so far that I felt that I HAD to give money to, if only to re-pay in some small way the immense value it has added to my life. I'm not much for commenting or forums or anything like that, so I've only dipped a toe in the deeper waters of the site proper. I mainly read the feature articles and listen to the podcasts. I'm sorry to say that most of the side podcasts have never done it for me, but I've tried them all. I even enjoyed Murmur while it lasted. Of all the things I will miss, the best of the week in panels, covers & sketches is what I will miss the most. These 3 features have introduced me to new series and creators that I never would have given a second thought, if I had heard of them at all. I even had one of my very small number of con sketches show up on a best of the week in sketches once(Baby Nick Fury by Gene Ha). I know very well how hard it is to keep up with things when "life" keeps getting in the way, and I'm grateful that you guys are honest about the process and how hard it has been. Better to end on a high note than to follow a long slow decline into navel-gazing irrelevance. That said, I expect to be listening the POW podcast on my deathbed.
May 14, 2013 9:56 pm If you don't count the in-direct connections between the Star Trek movies and stuff like Deep Space Nine, the only tv-series/movie connections I can think of are one-offs, like The X-Files, Simpsons & Ducktales movies. I loved it when X-Files had a "previously on" that was just a summary of the movie. Oh, I guess Power Rangers had a couple of movies that were sort-of in continuity with the show.
May 8, 2013 10:33 pm Anyone know why they never try to make a quick buck & release the pilot episodes as a stand-alone movie? I watched a bootleg of Global Frequency's pilot years ago and it was great. And yes, I know that Warren Ellis blames bootlegs of the pilot for the show not getting picked up.
March 18, 2013 8:05 pm If Ordway started a Superman-pastiche webcomic that posted new pages every week, I would read the hell out of it.
February 18, 2013 3:04 pm What about the public record political contributions of Disney & Time Warner, or of individual comic book creators? Should there be some kind of vetting for political appropriateness for all creators & companies? If so, who decides what level is appropriate? Why was there not a similar level of protest over "Holy Terror?" I remember a few sputterings, but nothing serious. The best way to protest the book is not to buy it.

February 18, 2013 2:54 pm Um...Hello? Anybody there? Perhaps next time you might consider having, um, I don't know...Iron, appear in a book entitled Ultimate Iron Man? Yes? Hello?
November 9, 2012 5:44 pm The rules can be simplified by using the closest similar situation: treat it like a beach or the pool. Every day of the year there are beautiful people wearing almost not clothes on beaches & at swimming pools. When you are at a con just act they same way as you would around someone in a bathing suit. The sad thing is that the people who will take some "rules" like this seriously aren't the people who would act this way in the first place. And they get away with it because other people at the cons won't say or do anything.
September 17, 2012 10:38 pm What the hell happened with the end of this storyline? It was great, and then it just got crazy. The finale had one great moment(Luthor just can't let Superman go...), but was otherwise kind of random and boring.
