    Congratulations! Four years is a major achievement in the fleeting attention world of the Intardweb! Kudos to everyone who makes this site and the Experience what it is: great and fun and honest.

    A major thanks for the recap or “origin” story of the Major Spoilers adventure. I look forward to year 5, 10, and so on … Especially the reboot where Matthew is forced to wear pants during the podcast (you know, as a result of the ‘cover up’ trend)! I would include a cute little jacket in the ensemble but I’m not sure he can pull that off…

    Love everything you guys do. Keep it up!

    Congrats, the Spoilerites! I’ve only been listening for the last year, but it’s been very enjoyable. Thank you.

    Many more years!

    That story of the cease and desist order was intriguing, but well before my time. (I started listening to the MSP during the time of the Final Crisis page by page breakdowns.)

      I’m intrigued as well, but please don’t ever reveal who it is (or even what comic book company he works/worked for), nothing good could come up of it.

      I know you guys know this, I write this so other doesn’t ask.

      I love this site, it’s the first thing I check in the morning and the last site I visit at night. It’s awesome!

        No sense in rehashing what’s past… Unless Stephen intends to reveal it, it won’t be made public. Also worth nothing: If you know the whys and wherefores of this discussion, please don’t make them public unless Steve does.

    I was listening to this as I watched the sunrise this morning and hearing you two talk about your kids, gave me a huge smile and makes me looking forward to having my own kids someday. Thanks for the site, the podcast, and all of your time.

    It makes me feel good to work for someone that gives (at least) the illusion of a soul. Makes my day job seem even crappier. lol

    It’s interesting to hear how long it takes you to write a review Matthew. I’m clocking in at around 3 hours each with reading the book, writing the review, proofing it, editing images, and submitting it to the site.

      Yep. It depends on the material, obviously, but I’ve got my images down to a science, and I’m a pretty stream of consciousness writer.

      A Rapid-Fire Review usually takes about ten hours, and a Hero History is roughly a three-day affair, in case you’re interested.

    Stephen was wrong!

    Stephen sounded a bit like an apologist of his work for about 10 to 15 minutes of the episode. That is wrong. He should never apologize for 4 years of the best comics related website and podcast that has ever been indexed by Google. He should never apologize for putting together a group of people who share snarky comments on the good and bad of topics I find interesting and entertaining; for my amusement, for free.

    The content that Major Spoilers puts out daily is a fire-hose that I drink deeply from and yet the content still manages to flood my RSS reader.It is almost more than I can follow. I know I am not alone.

    People should think twice before trying to slap this site with lawsuits because they gave their work a less that stellar rating. They should view the low rating as a challenge to do better on their next project. They clearly fear the power this site holds or they would not have bothered with the lawsuit. Because of this site I Love Atomic Robo, and will try Velocity this month.

    If Steven ever mentions the name of the creator who almost took down Major Spoiler I will gladly boycott them. Major Spoiler is more important to me than any one creator or publisher. Yeah, you too Marvel and DC.

    Now that I got that off my chest, I’m off to drink my Kool-aid. Yeah, I said it, Kool-aid drinking Major Spoiler-ite.

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