  1. If Amy Bender wants to do comics, there is absolutely nothing stopping her.

    //\Oo/\\

  2. Here’s what I think!

    – I think they need to be longer, and done more regularly!
    It may break you both as men, but I’m okay with that.

    – That said, last week, I was enjoying episode 9 so much on the train (on my way back from work), that I forgot to get off at the stop near the comic shop to pick up my weekly haul!
    I got all the way home, pumped up on comics from the podcast, before realizing I had nothing new to read!

    – The two books I’ve picked up solely based on recommendations from the podcast?
    X-Men Forever Vol.1 and Hulk: Green Hulk/Red Hulk HC.
    I think you can both be proud of that!
    I haven’t gotten into X-Men Forever yet, but I did enjoy the heck out of Hulk. Was off sick from work, and that sort of dumb over the top action was exactly what I needed.
    (Don’t feel too bad about only putting people onto trash – I’ve usually picked up the good books you rave about, or already had them on the list).

    – Jeff, I think you should credit Graeme as ‘Graeme McMillions’ on itunes.
    He’d never find out, and it’s such a catchy name.

    – Speaking of itunes, I’ve subscribed to the podcast, but unlike other podcasts I’ve subscribed to, it won’t automatically download the new episodes of this one. I have to go to the itunes page and select download – this is the only podcast I’ve subscribed to which does this.
    (I don’t mind, but I figured you should know).

    – And in reference to ep 10.1, I don’t know if you guys saw, but they ended up doing 3 full trailers for Scott Pilgrim, and by the third, had realized they had to let it be it’s own thing.
    It ends up being a much stronger trailer, much truer to the film, and I can’t help but think would have turned more people onto it if it had been shown at cinemas instead of the first one they did.

  3. Ben–thanks for all the feedback and we’re quite glad we’re steering you to books you enjoy, trashy or not!

    And thanks for letting me know about the podcast not automatically updating for you–they’ve been doing so on both the computers we have here at Casa de Lester but then Itunes has fooled me on this front before.

    Is anyone (or everyone) having the same problem Ben mentions here with Itunes not downloading new eps automatically even though you’re subscribed? If so, do you mind letting me know in the comments here? Gracias!

  4. Oh, and! I partially agree with you about the third trailer–I think that was the best I’ve seen.

    That said, I don’t fully agree: I think the super-strong box office for stuff like The Last Exorcist and Takers (*each* with twice the opening take of Scott Pilgrim) while SP continues to sink lower and lower means that this stuff is just not at all in sync with wherever the American psyche is at at the moment. I wish I knew why.

  5. “Is anyone (or everyone) having the same problem Ben mentions here with Itunes not downloading new eps automatically even though you’re subscribed? If so, do you mind letting me know in the comments here? Gracias!”

    I think it may just be me – I tried it on another computer and it worked fine, and having deleted the podcasts and re-subscribed, it seems to be working better.

    “That said, I don’t fully agree: I think the super-strong box office for stuff like The Last Exorcist and Takers (*each* with twice the opening take of Scott Pilgrim) while SP continues to sink lower and lower means that this stuff is just not at all in sync with wherever the American psyche is at at the moment. I wish I knew why.”

    There’s definitely that, and it could be that there’s too much going on for a smaller film like that to get noticed – there’s a heck of a lot of franchises – like Twilight – which are taking up a lot of the attention right now.
    If Scott had come out in-between something like that, where there wasn’t several big things taking everyone’s attention, it could have caught on a lot better – same with Kick-Ass.
    Didn’t that come out just after Iron Man but just before a Twilight film?
    There’s also that Scott’s target audience, same with it’s characters, are the type that aren’t necessarily going to rush out and see a film – like many are saying, I think it may just catch on when it’s on DVD.
    I’d never heard of the comic until just before the third volume came out and the buzz came from word of mouth.

    I just worry with the trailer, because I saw the first trailer shown in a cinema when I went to see Inception, and the audience practically yawned.
    That whole start part where it was trying to look like a Sundance type film (it’s become a genre) really didn’t work well for it, even when it got to all the big battles – a lot of people would have made their first impression off that trailer, and decided to stay away – I mean that trailer had me really worried about the film, and I knew it was coming from a place of goodness.

    Oh, and I just got to the bit in X-Men Forever where it was revealed that Storm, who just blinded Sabretooth, killed Wolverine, and then Kitty cut Storms eye out.
    Suddenly I see the appeal to the book.

  6. – Speaking of itunes, I’ve subscribed to the podcast, but unlike other podcasts I’ve subscribed to, it won’t automatically download the new episodes of this one. I have to go to the itunes page and select download – this is the only podcast I’ve subscribed to which does this.

    Did you check your settings in iTunes? I had the same problem and had to go into iTunes and tell iTunes to automatically download the latest episode, instead of using the default settings (whatever those might be).

    Haven’t had a chance to listen to this episode yet guys, but I’m glad you’re still putting them out. Looking forward to listening to them tomorrow.
