This week, after a nearly three-year wait, I finally got to sit down and watch The Venture Brothers Season 6…

TOTALLY worth the wait, you guys!  I wasn’t sure how they could top S5, but from the first moments of the debut special, I was once again hooked (and thanks to the magic of aging, this time, I got to watch with The Widget.)  Though my favorite parts were all Monarch-related, it provided character development for everyone from Brock to Gary, and created new characters who are as fascinating as the old, leading to today’s arch-query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still regrets writing this show off as a bad Jonny Quest parody at the beginning, asking: What season/issue/volume of your favorite pop-culture stories was most worth the wait to get?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Probably last volume of Blade of the Immortal. Its a samurai manga I had been following from pretty much immediately when Dark Horse started to put out translated paperback volumes in 1998. Last one, vol. #31 was released April 1st 2015.

    It started when I was a young 17 year old boy, it ended when I was a grown 35 year old man. That was a memorable and even little sad moment, its perhaps my most treasured complete series of comics.
