@g-man I tweeted you about X-Men Legacy 300 & you should read it, it's a standalone issue. Simon ended the Legion story in issue 24. It's so good, every body else should go read it if they didn't.

Why do you guys hate Forever: Evil so much? In my personal opinion its so far above Battle of the Atom and Age of Infinity its not even funny.

@g_man, FYI, it's pronounced Kevin "fye-ghee". Rhymes with "high key".

To the duder who asked to help him cut some books I would say DO NOT drop any of the Image books. Marvel and DC are are hugely rich corporations so if you drop or even trade wait some of their bigger books then chances are it won't make a bit of difference to them but to do that to any of the indy books could lead to the book dying since they don't have the financial backing

@timelord: I keep getting lumped in with the "you guys." I've been reviewing FOREVER EVIL and giving them 4s and 5s.

And I do like the Marvel UK books. It's the two knuckleheads that don't.

I like how Mat (or maybe it's Corey?) says he's going to quit the podcast every week.

I love how Tony always pronounces "problem" as "prom" -

"I don't have a 'prom' with that, but ..."

Heehee

I hate how it disrupts other books, not the event itself, mainly NIGHTWING and all the Dark Books. Personally, I just want these books to grow on their own and not be shoehorned into events. The event itself is fine.

The podcast is out of control!!!

I haven't read a Marvel UK book since the early 90s, whenever it first appeared. It's a completely irrational hatred.

That's me, and it's usually when Tony goes music crazy.

Great podcast, but one of your facts is off: Kelly Sue DeConnick actually brought Matt Fraction to Marvel, not the other way around.

@inferiorego: Or maybe it was that I was trying to answer the person's question and had mentioned before we started that I wanted to keep the podcast under three hours. Whenever I read the questions, there's very often an interruption over the question.

This doesn't make them any more good. I have read most of the old UK stuff and it is very difficult to enjoy. Maybe I have to be from the UK.

@g_man @inferiorego @undeadpool, is Greg the only one of you really into Green Arrow? I'm really surprised if thats true, no hate or anything but Green Arrow has been killing it issue to issue. I think the writing is just as good as the art too. Plus it has absolutely no ties to Forever Evil or other crossovers, just pure globe trotting arrow madness. Lemire has even stated he has no current plans for a crossover with Justice League United and that he has been pretty much building one large contained story since he and Sorrentino started, which will continue after Outsider War is over. I think Green Arrow is within the top 5 DC books currently being published, is their any reason story wise you guys are not really into it?

@lifeboy: Might want to use spoiler tabs ;)

@themantisshrimp: It sounds like Corey enjoys it as much as I do. I don't think it's the best book or whatever, but it is currently my favorite from DC. I enjoy what Lemire's doing and Sorrentino's work is amazingly creative.

With so much other stuff to read, I'm just losing interest, but I do agree it's easily one of DC's top 5 books.

@inferiorego, I can see that. I only read about 10-12 books a month but if I spent the money I could easily add many more books that are just as great as what I'm reading now.

My favorite author cut his teeth on the not-so-well-aged Age of Apocalypse. We can love creators without loving everything they did.

I've praised Forever Evil's last two issues, but I'm with Mat: the tie-ins are WEEEEAK (especially the "magic" ones).

Also: it's CLEAR that I'm not the out of control one...until I get my Mother Sound Effect Box back, that is...

Thanks for the podcast fellas. I never miss a week. Glad my question got asked this week but I'm ashamed to say in retrospect it wasn't as interesting as I thought it might be. I did get a solid answer thanks to @g_man since it didn't cross my mind that Shazam use to be published by someone else. Appreciate the knowledge drop duder. I would send in more questions but I prefer to ask things you guys haven't be asked a hundred times (which sad to say was like 80% of the questions this week) and I can never think of any.

I don't mind the music but Tony should realize it makes listening a lot more stressful for me. If someone so much as utters something that vaguely resembles song lyrics I sort of hold my breath and cringe half expecting a sound byte. Half the time nothing happens and the other half the exact song I anticipated starts playing. It makes the podcast somewhat less relaxing than it use to be. I also worry that one day someone will try to take legal action. Admittedly it still makes me laugh to hear Tony's bizarre taste in musical tangents. Keep up the great work.
