"We all know the Star Wars storys by heart."

Come on, Tony; "storys"? Really?

@KingHippp0: Robinson wasn't seriously berating her, but rather asking for more detail in her critiques. And really, it was more in line with the usual teasing he gives her; don't take it that seriously. He seemed more interested in why she thought than what she thought.

But I actually think it's healthy for a critic to be challenged on their conclusions and to be asked to elaborate on their complaints. Creators have their work criticized by every Tom, Dick and Harry with a keyboard and an internet connection, and there's little to nothing they can do to respond to those criticisms.

Critics, while serving a valuable consumer-advice role, are parasitic in nature (I mean that in the nicest way possible). They do not create, and only comment on the work of others. An occasional face to face with the creators might be a good way to keep critics a little more grounded, and the back and forth between critic and creator might lead to real improvements. It goes without saying that creators shouldn't be bullying or intimidating critics, but I don't think that's what was happening here.

@G-Man: Sorry if this has been covered already, but is your new location going to affect James Robinson's ability to visit for podcasts? I know that your last location was fairly convenient for him, and so the new offices might be too much of a hassle. Is this it for frequent James Robinson podcast appearances? I really enjoyed his presence.

The same goes for Corey. Is that a by-gone era in the nuComicVine relaunch? (sorry, bad joke)

Just about to start listening. I wanted to say though, I really appreciate the longer length of these last few podcasts. I take long walks for exercise while listening to podcasts, so the longer, the better!

Exactly the case with me.

I'm just going to point out that only the area around the hair follicle is alive. The hair that you see are dead cells. It's not like your hair grows out from the point where you cut it, it grows from the follicle! Come on, Tony! You know this stuff!

I just stumbled upon this blog post and it totally took me by surprise; a very pleasant surprise. Sure, it's several years old, but all the points are still starkly valid. I already had a lot of respect for your work at Comicvine, and this only augments that esteem. Keep being awesome.

I always enjoy hearing more from voice actors.  It's an incredibly interesting subject for me.

I started out completely opposed to this series before it came out.  I felt like it was going to be a cheap cash-in of Tartakovsky's great series of shorts.  But then I saw the movie, and I liked it far more than I expected.  Then the series aired with episode after episode of great action and adventure every week.  I sadly missed out on season 2, and now I have to hold off watching season 3 until I catch up on 2 when the Blu-ray set comes out in October. 
 
This is the best Star Wars has been since before 1999.  Bring it on!  And how about have Tartakovsky guest-direct an episode or two?  Pretty-please?

Man, that Lara on the cover looks JUST like Alex Ross's Wonder Woman from Kingdom Come.  Same exact stern and untrusting expression.  It's almost uncanny.
