Bio: I was thinking about that "superhero dream team" questions, and the "teams should have five or seven" rule.My Marvel dream team would be  Jean Grey,  Cyclops, Wolverine, Captain America, Iron Man, Daredevil, and Molly Hayes.My DC dream team would be Selina Kyle, Vic Sage as the Question, Renee Montoya as the Question, Harvey Dent in his not-quite-Two-Face but still on the crazy side incarnation, and Beast Boy.Then I'd do a universe exchange program, where Beast Boy could go to Marvel with his rah rah team spirit, and Daredevil could  come to DC and hang  out with the other misanthropes.I'm convinced that this little story says something about me, and my relationship with these two companies, I'm just not sure what yet.Love the podcast!I blog about comics, along with some friends, at 'Fantastic Fangirls: Comics and Culture": http://fantasticfangirls.org/I'm on twitter as madmarvelgirl: http://twitter.com/madmarvelgirl

Fans of ‘crime’ stories that take place in a superhero universe (thing ‘Gotham Central’) should give this miniseries a shot. …

November 5, 2013 6:04 pm Was Villains Month actually really successful? I haven't been following sales news and I couldn't tell whether that was sarcasm. In any case, I'm glad you guys highlighted the Arms of the Octopus crossover. I accidentally picked up the first issue b/c I thought it was part of Bendis's All New X-Men and would have discarded it without reading it if it hadn't been the pick. And then I still would have missed the second issue if you all hadn't talked it up. This was one of the most fun minis (?) I've read in a while, and it's absolutely classic Marvel, but it seems they had no idea how to sell or market it. I hope you're right that it's a tryout for Costa. As a superhero debut (?) it's very promising. Loved all the artists too.
August 5, 2013 4:13 pm For my birthday, Chris, please refrain from posting the unedited links to my facebook wall. My mom reads that. Thanks.
August 5, 2013 4:09 pm To clarify, of course porn CAN be creepy and gross but I think it's just as valid to use it as 'something that turns me on, and that's awesome!' I think that's where the spirit of terms like 'shelf porn' or 'food porn' come from. But hey, they can be sexy pictures or erotica, too. I wouldn't go so far as to actually endorse 'shelf porn,' but I also don't here 'porn' as automatically equaling 'shameful.'
August 5, 2013 4:04 pm Your link is moderated but I get the idea. (The weirdest thing about this conversation to me is the assumption that 'porn' = "creepy and gross" not "awesome and shiny". Too much fanfiction.net.)
August 5, 2013 3:55 pm Oh, Chris. Oh, honey. If you think Picard porn is new, never ever go to fanfiction dot net.
June 12, 2013 9:46 am I may not be as good at girly things as you are b/c I haven't seen '50 First Dates'. The whole package = rugged quiet strength and stubble and fashion sense. Though it might just be because I worked at a J Crew call center when I was in college and the only thing to do when it was slow was to read J Crew catalogs and make up stories in your head about the models, many of whom shared Henry Cavill's fondness for stubble and sweaters and gazing thoughtfully into the distance.
June 10, 2013 4:25 pm BTW, somebody once assumed I went to see 'Iron Man' because I thought Robert Downey, Jr. was attractive when in fact I loved Iron Man before the movie was even a rumor. When it comes to Supes, though, I'll totally own it.
June 10, 2013 4:22 pm Well, really it's the whole fisherman package. That might have come out wrong. And hey, my brother has convinced his wife and in-laws to see the movie because there is (he claims) an Australian cattle dog in five seconds of the trailer, and they really like cattle dogs. WHATEVER IT TAKES.
June 10, 2013 1:43 pm I don't really have strong feelings about the Superman story either way, but I look at those trailers and there is 1) Lois Lane 2) Henry Cavill w/ stubble in a fisherman's sweater. Sold. /female gaze
June 5, 2013 9:05 pm Thanks for sharing your story, Dave. I look forward to seeing the rest of the story in whatever form we can get it in. Also, I'm not saying this is the ONLY time in my life I'll be in a sentence as 'the likes of' Scott Snyder & Gabriel Hardman, but this is definitely the FIRST time it's happened, which is pretty cool on my end as well.
