  1. So cool that Sergio Aragones’ “Funnies” was reviewed. I am a big fan of his work since the 19–s and buy these more for a nostalgic reason than anything else. Love Sergio’s hyper-detailed drawings and the “inside” jokes included in most panels (it helps that I am bilingual and pick up on the Spanish jokes as well). Not sure I would recommend this book to everyone but it’s a cool book for the younger readers (and old, nostalgic fools like me).

    Neat surprise. Good podcast as usual.

  2. Hi,
    I enjoyed this ‘cast. I still need to read the actual Frank Miller Daredevil run, but feel like I have a fairly good grasp from your review. I didn’t know Nuke was in this, but I remember Nuke from a Wolverine from the ’80s – I checked, it was #18. Bizarre. I figured he was a one-shot character.
    I have been enjoying the brand new daredevil run. I like Daredevil’s upbeat personality, especially in the face of the disadvantages in his personal life.
    Also, I always hear Kingpin as having a deep, reverberating voice, speaking slowly and poignantly (maybe a James Earl Jones).

  3. Woot! I designed Stephen’s car. :) It probably ended up a cross between the car Homer designed and a Honda Civic Crosstour, and a retro-style T-bird from the last decade.

  4. Long day at work and hearing Matthew’s reaction to Sam Jackson…I laughed uncontrollably every time I heard it. Thank you, I needed that :)
