Tony, are you going to do a lootcrate video every month?

Really enjoy watching your vids on my roku so please keep the content coming.

Looking forward to my January crate. Last month`s was pretty cool.

@kingofwhales: I'm not sure yet. It'll depend on the video views and reception to the "contest" part of the video.

@vojtavem: we don't really mention any spoilers or specific plot points. Just the time period.

We don't just use coke in the South. We also use soda. Although when you do say coke, it's assumed it's Coca-Cola for the most part or another cola. Pepsi isn't okay substitute (personally).

Also 4 of the best pictures were biopics. But they definitely whiffed on the nominees.

@g_man Are you no longer doing Agent Carter reviews? You didn't do one for episode 2 or 3. Or are you guys just skipping reviews and gonna just talk about them on the other podcast?

Dammit @g_man stop making excuses for weekly and overpriced comics! We need less of those! Buying comics weekly has become ridiculously expensive and it's not cool! Damn you MARVEL!

Neptune's beard could we steer this show back to comics first? Oscars noms, race debates, soft drink preferences? It takes an hour before a comic book is discussed

@inferiorego If you are in a place that says coke instead of soda or pop the proper etiquette (last time I was somewhere like this) for ordering a Coca-Cola is:

Waiter: "What would you like to drink?"

You: "I'll have a coke"

Waiter: "What kind of coke?"

You: "Regular."

Everything is in reference to Coca-Cola so if you want a Diet Coke you just ask for a Diet. Any other soda I believe must be referred to by the specific brand name. Even other colas like Pepsi you indicate that you want a Pepsi or a Diet Pepsi. At least this was the way it was the last time I was somewhere that used coke instead of soda or pop. Who knows the rules could have changed by now.

Green Lanterns or any lantern for that matter should be able to KO Superman with their power rings.

I bought the two Eva Bell annuals this week and it cost me 11 euro. Nearly 13 dollars. If your American at least you don't have to worry about import tax. They even charge it on comixology and they aren't importing anything! It is less though than if you buy in store. It's a shame too because I like the stores but they are just fucking expensive. First foray out of digital in a while and, great story but I was fleeced.

Where I come from every thing is called juice. Coke, Pepsi, Fanta, 7UP ect all juice.

I think Dark Horse didn't throw a bunch of release parties because they've had the license for so long that nobody would care. I can almost guarantee that the longer Marvel has the license, the less they'll make a big deal about it. I hate to be super negative but I am worried about the future of Star Wars at Marvel because I could see them eventually just throwing their lower tier talent onto the book once the initial hype wears off and it settles into its more stable spot on the sales chart.

My biggest problem with Dark Horse Star Wars comics was always the art. Every once in a while there'd be some great art (Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison) but most of it was mediocre at best. The art, to be completely honest, was the biggest reason I didn't love Brian Wood's Star Wars series as much as others.

As for the whole Darth Vader being the star of the saga thing. Vader is the star of the prequels but Luke is the star of the original trilogy. I will accept no debate about this because it was only retroactively changed to make Vader even more important. Luke is the driving force behind the story of the original trilogy and doesn't get enough credit. Lucas even initially planned on killing Vader in A New Hope. That's why he is essentially just the attack dog for the Empire in that movie. Vader is one of my favorite Star Wars characters but he isn't the star of the whole thing no matter how much Lucas says he is.

TL:DR - Dark Horse had the license a long time and that's the reason they didn't push Star Wars like Marvel is now. Dark Horse Star Wars Comics rarely had very good art and that was a big turnoff. Vader is not the star of the whole saga. Vader = Prequels. Luke = Original Trilogy

I'm from Atlanta. All carbonated drinks are sodas. When I order "coke" it's refering to Coca-Cola. But if they only have Pepsi products it's interepteted as a regular Pepsi (the inferior cola) Root Beer is ordered as Root Beer.

Damn TOny, when are you going to get to the forum questions?

@g_man Sorry I haven't asked any Star Wars questions in a while, I couldn't think of anything else to ask. I will say, in regards to ComicVine users not liking Star Wars, I see plenty of Star Wars battles in the battle forums, so there's that.

Why don't you guys just rename the podcast "Amazing comics marvel released this week and some other company put out some comics too I guess"

I like the podcast but lately it's as if marvel is paying for a 2 hour commercial every week

I live in Georgia and I call it soda in general or call the drink what it is. If I want a Mountain Dew I ask for a Mountain Dew. Calling it POP drives me crazy!

Edited by D9000

What is everybody living in an Archie comic? Soda is the past, Pop is the future! I'm not sure if everyone in Canada calls it Pop but I sure do. But did you know that in the UK they (sometimes) call regular Coke a "Full Fat Coke". WTF is that? I was trying to serve drinks and people were messing me up.

Also, funny story I got tired of people saying "is Pepsi OK?" when I ask for a Coke in a restaurant so I started asking for Cola, since Coke and Pepsi are both Colas. Well that doesn't work! If you wanna confuse a server as for a Cola. That's one word that no one knows anymore.

Lol, this is why I listen to Comic Vine. For the random non-comic talk.

Edited by D9000

As for Clone Wars, I could never get into the show or movie because it was too close to something I hate with all my heart, the new trilogy. Just seeing young Obi-Wan and young Anakin reminds me of those awful movies. That being said, people I trust have told me it's very good and I believe them. It's my own personal issues that stopped me from watching the show.

Also, I totally agree with Tony that it feels natural for Han to go after Luke on Hoth. But I never gave it a second thought because the last thing that happened in episode 4 was Han coming back in the Falcon and saving Luke from Vader. He had no reason to fly into a huge battle zone and risk his life, other than to save Luke. By then end of that movie I pretty much assumed they were BFFs.

You'd think that finding out a book is ending would make someone want to keep buying to see how everything ends. Maybe it's different if it gets cancelled out of nowhere, but if they have time to write a real ending wouldn't that be an important issue to have?

And thanks for the legal advice. I've already had the phone case made for a while and I'm pretty sure the illegal part is from the website that makes the case. I'm not making money off the image but the website is. But anyway, I put the image of the case I made below and I think it's totally worth breaking a few puny laws for!!

As a Georgia boy, Soda in general is called "Coke", but also all sugary carbonated drinks are called "Soda". So when you order a Soda most people call it specifically by the brand they want, but then go back to calling it "Coke" when asked what they are drinking.

Everyone here in Canada calls 'soda' 'pop'.
