Rodrigo: Ghost Rider #23 (Marvel Comics)
“Hell-Bent and Heaven Bound,” the first arc by the exciting new team of Jason Aaron and Roland Boschi, comes to its explosive conclusion. Ghost Rider has faced off against machine-gun-toting nurses, flesh-rending spirits and hungry cannibals, but has that brought him any closer to an answer in his quest for vengeance? Big things are brewing for Ol’ Flamehead in ’08, and the madness starts here, with what must surely be the most shocking last page in Ghost Rider history. Hint: He’s back!

    I really really enjoyed this episode. I had no problems whatsoever with the length of the show because the conversation was going well and I was intrigued with it. I had to get out of the car and take my iPod in with me and plug it into some speakers to finish the show. I’ve started listening since the last 3 shows and I cannot stress how much this has become one of my favorite podcasts.

    My one complaint is you guys’ worrying about spoilers. I believe since you make the spoiler warning at the beginning of the show, you shouldn’t have to worry about spoilers after that.

    I voted for the 1967-1970 Spider-Man series. It was the first one that I watched when I was kid even though I was born in 78. I don’t know what it was, maybe it was the simplicity of the series, but I can still watch some episodes to this day even though the animation could be considered terrible.

    Love show and keep up the great work!

    Allen,
    Thanks so much for the kind words. We had a quick debate about that spoiler. On the one hand you are correct, hence our giving away the ending to Action Comics. On the other hand, Ghost Rider was a title that had not been released prior to release of the show, and that was what I was most concerned about.

    We also agree with you that this was our favorite podcast to date. We’re hoping next week goes as well :D
