Oh, I just don’t know where to begin: last episode was held up on account of spinal aggravation and this episode starts with a SNAFU of the kind that had me tearing my rich abundant hair out of my head. (Hmmm, now that I think about it? I think…maybe that was neither my hair nor head?)
But that’s the kind of episode this is–the one where our minds are made up but our mouths are undone. Nonetheless, Graeme McMillan and I were committed to *finally* finishing up answering your questions (seeing as we didn’t answer them in the same month you asked them…or technically the same season) and talking stuff like Action Comics #10; superhero movies and the geek comfort zone; Spawn and Glamourpuss #25; the superlative Zombo; Jennifer Blood; and Sonic Disruptors.
Also, don’t miss our discussion of Minutemen #1, which manages to mention The Dooce, Abhay, Brandon Graham, Internet communication, and put Graeme and I on opposite sides of the Elvis Costello lyrics (see? You weren’t just imagining them!) with Graeme being: “It’s the damage that we do we never know” and me being: “It’s the words that we don’t say that scare me so.”
Oh, plus the tremendous Double Barrel #1; the best reviewed comic in the world; James Ellroy and comics; American Flagg; Zenith; Detective Comics and much more, including exciting news for Wait, What? and a request (at least one!) for listener assistance. In less than two hours? Yessir. You may say, “I don’t want to hear it cuz I know what I’ve done.” (I know, I know.)
So many podcasts to catch up on and add to your collection, but iTunes can keep you hangin’ on (until you’re well hung). Your mind is made up but you can listen to us below:
As always, we hope you enjoy and thank you for listening. (Now, if you excuse me, I’m off to cue up Oliver’s Army.)
