For fans of Critical Hit, the Major Spoilers Dungeons and Dragons podcast, you’ll be happy to know it went live on iTunes this week, and you can now subscribe to the show, here.  Why didn’t it show up on the front page of the iTunes Podcast Directory?  It might be because there weren’t that many people that subscribed on the first day, and I blame Spider-Woman for that.

The Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev series hit iTunes in a big way, taking the number one spot on the Top Television-Animation sales chart.

“To wake up this morning and see Spider-Woman ranked so high on the iTunes charts is crazy insane to me,” gushed Brian Michael Bendis. “Thanks to all the readers, and especially the motion comics first timers, who tried us out and than hit the subscribe button. To quote the Stan: you ain’t seen nothing yet!”

That’s great news for Spider-Woman fans, but I’m sure more than a few RPG’ers are shedding a tear right now.

    Just bought and watched it. I enjoyed it, even though I am not a comic reader and know nothing about this character other than what I hear/read at Major Spoilers.

    Subscribing to Critical Hit as soon as my internet is set up at home….

    I wonder how the Spider-Woman did in comparison to the DC Motion Comics? It seems pretty sure that it blew them away, but what would have been the factor? Marketing? Word Of Mouth? Spider-WOMAN?

    Is there anyway to find out how Red Son did in comparison?

    I was actually very impressed…and it only cost a dollar. Bendis being…Bendis with the story. Alex Maleev’s art really works for me. The voice quality made me feel like I was watching a high quality cartoon. Although Jessica Drew’s voice will take some getting used to as it was not something I had in mind. Everyone else’s was dead-on though!

    More people should leave reviews for critical hit on iTunes to help bump it up (as long as you rate 5 stars of course). Same goes for MSP. I currently only see 22 review on itunes for MSP and I know there are more than 22 people listening to the Podcast.

    This is a call to arms people.
