Byron gets mean mad.


  • You wanted to do the ass part of it first huh? Niiiiice ;)

    I actually enjoyed the issue where they had that argument although I did find that particular scene where she lets her hair loose odd. I assumed that her point was that he chose another girl to paint instead of her. Instead of trying to get his attention for feelings.

    Im trying to see if i can get a copy of that Kingdom Come Audio play for you. Keep your fingers crossed!

  • Thanks for the plug!

    I admit, I never really noticed the letting hair loose thing. I was too busy going "You did NOT actually SAY that!" when she brought up Alex. That was bad form enough to knock everything else out of my head.

  • Oh i almost forgot, did you know Ron Marz (the writter of Green Lantern) got divorced that year? Makes you wonder if Kyle would have gone through what he did (Alex getting put in a fridge, Donna Break up, and other future stuff) if Marz hadnt been going through what he went through...

  • I never read that Marz got a divorce that eyar, are you sure it's not an urban legend?

    The Donna break-up still would've happened. That was editorial. I don't think some of the couple's fights, like the argument brought up on the podcast, might have happened. And this might explain Jade's behavior at times.

    And to give him the benefit of the doubt I do think the fridge thing would have happened too, actually. Character was based on the Spider-Man archetype, so someone was going to die in the origin.

    I do, however, think that the Genesis crossover where he got tortured by Desaad would be explained away by a real life divorce.

  • I dont know if the divorce happened that year but i do know they did get divorced.

  • I am currently ill with a cold...but this is keeping from going home from university and going to sleep. (If It wasn't for a strike tomorrow I wouldn't be here at all...) the but section was amusing...I agree with you on what you said about how friendships just fizzle out...There were 3 people who I talked to in sixth form alot - Only one of them I "talk" to on a regular basic anymore (and that is on AIM.) Byron from the preview pics seems like something I will like reading...since I am in england - and don't want them too have to pay for shipping multiple times I will wait till all four are out and buy atleast 2 copies.

    I don't know if I have said this before...or if anyone has. One thing which I love about your show is the music, because it is your friends music and you are the only one who uses it it makes make me think of some of the things you are talking about even during the intros...

    Oh...just on the kingdom come part.

    I read it in October/november for the first time...WOW...is all I can say...The persons Art is brillient...I know from Comic Geek Speek that there is a bigger sized complete version coming out soonish.

  • Good show.

    Okay, I know that they're impractical and uncomfortable and make no sense for a crime fighter, let alone an alien, but I gotta say, I appreciate the look of a woman (otherworldly or not) in heels.

    Although even I thought Seven of Nine's outfit was a bit ridiculous.

  • Enjoyed the podcast. I thought you might enjoy an account of my brush with Mark Waid...
