Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Today, while driving through my sleepy little down, I spotted one of those “inspirational” window stickers proclaiming the three things you need in life.  Do we really need three? Isn’t there more to life than that? And if there are more, is there one that is more important than the other?


What do you really need more of?

    Jimmy or Jenny doesn’t matter, as long as the hair is red :)

    I actually picked up the first issue of Girl Genius digitally a few weeks back to send to a friend for her birthday and then bought myself a digital copy because I liked it so much. Of course I have been a Foglio fan since What’s New with Phil & Dixie in the back of Dragon. I do agree with Rodrigo in that the Foglio MTG cards (both Phil and Kaja, though moreso Phil) are just not the right style for the game and tend to pull me out of the setting.

    I picked up my vol. 1 through drivethrucomics.com because I could not find it on comixology. Interesting enough I received an email today announcing that they had just released a color version of volume one. Even better, it had the low low price of ZERO dollars. I assume this was because I had already purchased the B/W version. Anyway, though I would mention it in case any of the Major Spoilers crew or listeners wanted to look for the color version. Overall I liked the color version, although I think the goblin guards looked better in black & white.

    Gratz on 500 and 1313 btw. Just listened to that episode on the way home from work!
