It seems that everyone enjoyed our Major Spoilers Fifth Anniversary series of podcasts so much, that we’ve decided to spin out a new podcast for you to enjoy.

In all the crazy confusion that is my life at the moment, this one almost slipped passed me — Major Spoilers is another year older! Today, marks the third anniversary of this website coming into the world, all kicking and screaming, and covered in goo.Â The good kind of goo mind you, not that horrible disgusting stuff you find inside the snack aisle at you local 24/7. I’d like to think Major Spoilers made it this far because of an awesome staff of people working around the clock covering the comics and pop culture industry, and to an extent it
On the next Major Spoilers Podcast, the crew will take a look at the Umbrella Academy by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba.

Hope everyone enjoyed the Major Spoilers Behind the Scenes Shows we ran this past week to celebrate the 2nd year of the site. This week things return to normal (as normal as they can be), and the Major Spoilers Panel will be diving into the first crisis – The Crisis on Infinite Earths, during our Trade Paperback segment of the show. Shout out with your thoughts and comments about the maxi-series, that promised to sort out all of the continuity errors from the then 50 years of DC storytelling.
Today is a day to celebrate – Major Spoilers turns two years old! The last year has been a roller coaster of a ride with the addition of a little Major Spoilers-ite joining the family, legal wrangling with some poo-poo heads, the temporary hiatus of the site, and the huge return with more reviews, news, and a brand new podcast.
Itâ€™s been one hell of a year, and I have you to thank for it.
