  • As a comicbook geek this has been a fantastic episode! Absolutely love Len’s behind the scenes stories. Also it was great to find myself reacting just like Ed’s and Jackson’s to Mr. Wein’s stories. :D

  • You’ve got a lot of great panels, but I am so stoked you threw some love towards comics. I would’ve been happy listening to each of these guys on their own, because the show was fascinating. Thanks for putting this out there.

  • Love the podcast – it and the “Wait,What?” podcast for the Savage Critics are the two I look forward to most every week. I’ll echo the comment that I’m very happy to see the love thrown to comic writers, which isn’t a surprise having gleaned the affection for the medium you obviously harbor, Mr. Blacker.

    I just started – and will listen throughout the work day, when possible – and I find it fascinating how truncated and “re-written” Mr. Wein’s recollection of issues between Alan Moore and DC comics is. Moore became irritated with the movies and decided he wanted nothing to do with DC? Ah, well. What should I have expected? I was happy to hear Ed Brubaker and Jackson Publick react with the sarcasm I felt in Wein’s comment that all of Moore’s stories are the same story.

    But enough of my bitching. On to the rest of the podcast.

    Thanks again,
