    33 minutes into the show (Great btw) And I thought I should point out that your view of we can spoil when… “everyone has had a chance to go to the store” could be a major* (*Heh that wasn’t even planned) “screw you guys” to those of us not living in the lower 48..upper 2..and or Canadia. Since our…chance to go to the store is variable.

    I kinda though that was already a part of your perception of things though..(Wooo you have an international audience) so I just wanted to point out how important it is that you keep up with your regular practice and keep the spoilers away from the front page and keep em major in the articles.
    Now for some more podcast goodness.

      I don’t get my comics until Friday at the earliest thanks to not having a comic shop around – however, in the example I gave about Steve Rogers, the story had already broken everywhere else, so talking about it on the site should not have been a major Russell moment. Likewise, the return of Batman was already all over the rest of American media before we had a chance to get to it.

        Don’t get me wrong i was applauding your normal practice. I just found it surprising that you didn’t (Well maybe you might and it just didn’t come out right) consider the fact you guys do have a lot of visits from an international audience(Who do get comics late)..so the whole time-limit on spoilers don’t hold up well in practice. Luckily for you guys you can (And have..except that one time with pirate Batman) let people take the choice themselves by posting the spoilers after the jump.

      Generally, yeah.

    Great show, loved the voices Stephen and Matthew used : P

    Ultimatum was also a big pain in the @$$ to me too. In Ultimate Fantastic Four #27, the last crossover with Marvel Zombies, Victor Van Damme (Dr. Doom) left the Ultimate universe and faced the zombie avengers and we assumed died. Yet he returns with no explaination in Ultimates V3 and at the end of Ultimatum the Thing kills him and blood shoots ou from his skull, thing is: HE’S A LIVING GOLLEM IN THE ULTIMATE UNIVERSE! The man is made of living metal just like in the movies… hate it when authors don’t read source material before writting their books.

    P.S.- I Downloaded “A Battle at the Altar” Critical Hit #13 and listended to it for about a month straight, just to hear Rodrigo pop a blood vessel while trying to start the encounter.

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