  • In its continuing attempt to bug the hell out of me, iTunes is now breaking when it tries to access your podcast feed page -- insists that the page doesn't exist, blahblahblah. The file downloads perfectly well from this page. iTunes, alas, sucks.

  • Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Y: The Last Man. Hope it is soon. Happy Holidays!

  • Shame on you, generalising about standing out in the crowd being something that's viewed as bad by all British people. I'm sure you wouldn't want us Brits generalising that all Americans are right wing, gun-toting, oil-stealing despots...that's just your government :o)

    On the subject of True Brit I was a little disappointed, I thought a lot of the humour missed its mark and I'm not quite sure how much John Cleese really had to do with it. Also the way the plot resolves itself didn't sit well with me.

    I hope you enjoy the other How to be a Superhero, as I said before I think it's hilarious.

  • I actually dig the Marvel Essential books because they're in black and white. Though I agree that super hero comics tend to look better in color I don't think Kirby had much to do with the coloring in his comics work for the major publishers. Typically comics companies didn't add the credit for coloring, but it was done by the publisher not the artist (though I'm sure they had imput to color guides and stuff sometimes.)

    It might not be as vibrant, but I think it's interesing to see the actual line art.
