    Oh my…the Joe Q panel is going to be nothing but non-stop NERD RAGE at One More Day, I’ll wager.

    …and I would like a video of it if that is the case. Heh.

    Marvel has always tried to live blog a lot of their panels.

    I had some fun checking out the NYCC stuff they did.

    Hopefully we will see that again.

    @Dr. Bolty: Nah The crowd is fickle and uncommitted. There’s will probably be more people praising him for Spider-Man (even though OMD had NOTHING to do with that success) than berating him.
    Would be fun if someone threw his shoes at him though. ;p

    @Gaumer: If they were going to do a live blog, wouldn’t they have announced it by now?

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
