  • Hey, finally got it to load. Loved it, especially the bit at the end before the last song (*grin*), and I can't wait for the next episode (She only did stuff in a couple panels, but I loved Power Girl in that story).

    But after your Big Book of Grimm review I wanted to recommend a book, and I can't recommend this enough. It's regular prose, though -- Fearless Girls, Wise Women and Beloved Sisters, edited by Kathleen Ragan. It is the absolute best folktale book I have ever read and seen and it changed the way I looked at fairy tales, and well, pretty much all stories. I strongly suggest you check it out.

  • Loved the show. Secret Identity is one of my favorites.

    I'm in absolute agreement with you on those fringe continuity comics. I'm a relatively new reader and I don't need to be bogged down with 40 years of back story.

    Here are some self contained books that exist either on the edges or just beyond standard continuity that you might enjoy if you haven't seen them before:

    From DC:

    It's a bird... - Superman writer tries to come up with story ideas while dealing with personal issues.

    The New Frontier - One of my favorites. A retelling of the origins of the DCU with art and story by Darwyn Cooke. It's just a gorgeous book.

    From Marvel:

    Alias - Ex-superhero becomes a PI. I have a couple issues with this one, but overall excellent. Plus the main character (female) doesn't have giant boobs. She does have low self esteem and a drinking problem.

    Runaways, Vol. 1 - Okay, it's targeted pretty young, but I had a blast with this one. There is a Vol. 2 that is a current ongoing, but V. 1 tells a complete story all on it's own and comes in one complete hardbound package.

    Also, I've officially made my first comic book purchase based solely on your podcast. I just picked up the first Halo and Sprocket collection and I'm very much looking forward to reading it.

    Again, great show.
