Someone's really full of it this week
- If you want to hear about comic books, start at the 20 minute mark. Seriously
- You can't just preface a statement with 'everyone is entitled to their opinions' and then complain about the comments on your site. A vocal majority thought Zero Year dragged and just as many think Original Sin went off the rails. Very few people think the world is just filled with 4 and 5 star books. So people are more salty and one sided about their opinions online, who cares? You could not read the comments. Or you could disable them on reviews. Either decision is a lot more productive than whining on the podcast.
- What is the source for the data that Comic Vine doesn't want to hear spoilers? A comment thread? a poll? As Corey has mentioned, there are studies out there with a much larger data pool that prove knowing plot points ahead of time isn't the disaster you make it out to be:
Spoilers Don’t Spoil Anything
also, many say 2 days is plenty of time for someone to catch up. Comics come out Wednesday, your podcast comes out Friday http://www.avclub.com/article/new-study-asks-how-long-spoilers-are-fair-game-tot-208178
It's ludicrous to suggest someone won't buy a comic because now they know how the story goes. Do you think people won't go see Guardians of the Galaxy because they can read the plot on wikipedia? We're asking for plot points to be discussed so there is some critical discussion of whether they story is good or not. Where Spidey webs a woman in distress is not critical discussion
- You are wrong about Utah Comic Con. Local artist and fellow podcaster Scott Johnson will tell you as much
And this is just the first hour? Wah wah wee wah...
