Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
One of our Twitter followers asked the other day if there was ever an artist change that caused us to drop a title. Then the very next day, Rob Leifeld started tweeting about dropping books because he didn’t like the artist change. Then I got an email asking the exact same thing. The universe seems to be conspiring to force this week’s Major Spoilers Poll of the Week upon all of us.

    Hey Stephen and spoilerites,

    Congratulations on seven years of goodness. I relistened to some of the earlier podcasts. It’s just gotten better and better every year! Then again, it’s been good since the start.

    Here’s to another 7! And beyond!

    I’ve been listening to you guys for almost two years. Major Spoilers easily remains my favorite comics podcast. I love all of the podcasts in the Major Spoilers family, especially Zack on Film. Keep up the great work! I’m proud to be a monthly donor!

    Every time someone asks Matthew about Sentai I think we need a Sentai/Kamen Rider/Overall Tokusatsu column on the website.

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