Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
As usual, I’m behind in getting my comic book order for the month into my regional comic book shop.  Over the last couple of years, my shop owner has noticed that I’m not ordering as many titles as I had previously. Which got me wondering, about your pull list.

How many books are on your monthly pull list?

    I posited the Jarvis as Ultron theory in the article about the announcement of the ‘Age of Ultron’. I’ve thought Stark’s robot from the first Iron Man film resembles the earliest version of Ultron from the comics. I’ve thought Ultron could emerge from the Iron Man movie mythos since the fist IM film.

    The Lone Gunmen died in one of the good episodes of the last season of the X-Files, the 2 new characters of the failed spin-offs “The Lone Gunmen” appeared as well.

    They locked themselves along side a terrorist with a poisonous bomb to protect innocent people.

    They died in the way any geek/nerd/spas/dweeb would want to go, behind a glass awaiting certain doom while saving hundred.

    Spock would be proud.

    Skinner pulled some strings to have them buried in Arlignton.

    More than just one of the original “Cosmos” creators, Ann Druyan is also Sagan’s widow.

    And Seth McFarlane isn’t just attached to the project, he’s the whole reason it exists.
