    November 21, 2017 4:17 pm If it turns out Ron is guilty of sexual harassment in the workplace I'll be just as outraged as everyone in the community. The problem is I can't really identify what Ron is being accused of here. Is it sexual harassment because I honestly can't tell? Should I pass judgment with that little information? Should you expect guilt because of a perceived trend in society? Are either of those rational stances to take? I'm not saying the people complaining about Ron should be silenced because I have fun listening to his opinion on a podcast. I'm literally asking a question. Of what is he being accused and by whom? I've got no facts therefore I have no opinion.
    November 21, 2017 2:35 pm I swear I just watched an Orville episode about this very thing... What's out there for us to digest is practically nothing. So unless there is something else not being said in public I'm not sure what we are suppose to be outraged at right now. The iFanboys said they aren't going to discuss it further because nothing good will come from discussing it further. From their address I got that they didn't have any first hand information on the accusations. They asked Ron and he denied it. They said from their personal experience as friends of Ron they wouldn't expect him to be labeled as a misogynist. That's pretty much all they can say.
    November 7, 2017 10:04 am I suspect Ron just got a hot new job working on a Ducktales book.
    October 16, 2017 9:51 am Yup I totally agree that The Wild Storm was interesting to me because it was rebooting that universe as a standalone story. Trying to cross it over to the larger DCU is a big mistake. I'm gonna keep reading the main book, but this move has me squinting my eyes at the whole thing now a bit. This idea of taking DCU and Wildstorm and Watchmen and pulling it all together kinda feels like when you go to a 7/11 and your friend squirts a little bit of all the slushy flavors into his cup.
    October 9, 2017 10:10 am Dugan is great, and he's bring back all the things I loved about Marvel Cosmic. Marvel Cosmic was always my second favorite corner of the Marvel Universe after the X books. I hope he stays on the book for a while. I wonder how popular this run is with the wider audience? Yeah I'm that guy who has been asking when are they gonna tell us what happed to Robbie ever since the end of the DnA run. He was such a big part of that book. I did sort of feel like I was the only one who gave a crap about that character. Of course it's comics so that's usually a false feeling.
    October 2, 2017 9:06 am I know that Star Trek Discovery is the big talking point in this video, but I wanted to chime in and say I really like the Orville. It's kind of refreshing to watch a TNG-like series. There is humor but surprisingly it's at the expense of the characters and not at the expense of the premise. That was greatly appreciated. It's the type of sci fi show I want to watch. I agree with Conor that you need to stick with it to get to episodes 3 and 4. It feels like the show has really found it's legs now. Hopefully it can keep it up. Also hopefully it doesn't get cancelled.
    August 28, 2017 9:32 am " At the end of season 2 I was loving the show." I meant at the end of season 1.
    August 28, 2017 9:04 am For SHIELD after the first half of season 1 I was ready to quit. It just didn't feel like it was doing anything new, but I push on since I wanted to give the show a fair shake. At the end of season 2 I was loving the show. Showing the collapse of SHIELD from the point of view of the agents on the ground was really cool. Beginning of season 2 I was excited to see where it was going. End of season 2 I was less enthusiastic since I really dislike Inhumans (SHIELD didn't do anything to improve on the concept IMO) and they were all of a sudden front and center in the story. Also I didn't think the team strife during the season was written convincingly. I never bothered to continue on to season 3. I hear it has gotten better, but man I just was not digging the show after season 2. I think the actors were all putting in great performances. I just think they were all written in such a way that they were either falling flat for me or they were making me flat out hate them. Except for Hunter. Hunter was fine.
    August 9, 2017 9:01 am So I've caught up on Gerry Duggan's run on GotG. I had jumped ship on the previous run of GotG because I didn't really like post MCU voice and direction for the series. So I wasn't jumping at the opportunity to pick up the new run (Even though I've liked Duggan's previous work). Boy was I surprised. It's great. My main complaint with the previous book was it didn't really feel like it connected to the Marvel cosmic heritage while also not really having a voice or narrative that felt true for the characters to me. Gerry really righted the ship IMO. Not only do we get Thanos and the Collector (safe characters since they appeared in the movies), but the Grandmaster, a Nova Corp reboot (long over due), Phyla Vell (made me very happy), Adam Warlock and the Infinity Watch! ... Look like know the game they need to play. They need to keep making these books approachable to new audiences. Especially audiences who come in expecting to see something similar to the movies. That said it just felt nice to finally have a book that really felt like it took place in the Marvel cosmic setting. It was always my favorite part of the Marvel universe. I love the MCU, but I don't want to view Marvel comics only through an MCU lens and for Marvel Cosmic I do feel like we've been doing that ever since the first Marvel Now event. The new GotG feels like such a breath of fresh air to me. Yeah Starlord is still more Chris Pratt than legacy Peter Quill and the team dynamic is still pretty much what it is from the MCU (GotG were more of a successor to the Infinity Watch than a group of professional thieves), but somehow that is all more palatable to me when you establish a stronger connection to the legacy.
    July 17, 2017 10:52 am I really miss the old school Marvel editorial boxes. They were a useful tool and really had a certain charm to them.
