  1. I’ve enjoyed the coverage of the New 52 as well as your excellent podcast. I’ve also enjoyed the expansion of the podcast family to include Top 5.

    Only comment would be, add more board game stuff!

  2. I’m new to the site and podcast. I heard about it on TMS and I gotta say, the podcast is very informative. You guys definitely keep up with the latest news IMO better than a lot others. Keep up the great work.

  3. I liked the explanation, by the ever clever Mathew, of why the Marvel universe never ages.

    Also the chance I got to be a part of the GM’s workshop. Further my chance to become another version of Rodrigo even if FAKERIGO gets more screen time.

  4. One of my favorite is also my first moment of Major Spoilers, MSP #297 Ultimate Spider-Pod Cast. Great introduction to the knowledge and fervor of Matthew, it is also the only podcast, excluding live shows, that went over 2 hours long in 2011.

  5. Your comic book reviews are excellent. I can get movie previews and gossip elsewhere. And other sites have comic previews too. But the reviews here are what make me come back for more.

  6. The reviews of the New 52 were outstanding. The Retro-reviews are great, especially when you find hidden gems.

    Thanks guys.

  7. In no particular order:

    – Matthew’s Franklin Theory of the Marvel Universe: I’d heard his “hints” over several podcasts but it was really awesome when he put his thoughts and ideas together into one posting. A fascinating “theory” made seemingly plausible by its comprehensiveness and cleverness.

    – Dr Coogan’s Watchmen podcast: kudos to Dr Coogan for allowing me to see this work of art in a completely different light even after I’ve read it dozens of times.

    – Rodrigo’s Critical Hit “it was only a dream” x 2!! podcasts: the definitive “wow” moment for me, but twice.

    – Stephen’s recommendations: Atomic Robo and Locke & Key. Wouldn’t know about them if it weren’t for Schleicher’s enthusiasm for the series.

    Here’s hoping for an even more awesome 2012!!

  8. My favorite Major Spoiler moment of 2011 was when Matthew and Steven stopped interrupting and talking over the top of one another. Oh wait, that never happened. My bad!
