Step right up and download the latest episode of the Major Spoilers Podcast! It’s a grab bag, which means you might get a discussion over bullying, comics at Wal-Mart, the World Cup, or the big question, “Can Stephen name 25 X-Men?”

NOTE: The episode starts exactly how it is supposed to start – immediately after this week’s Dueling Review ends. There is literally 2 minutes of conversation that is missing, that we purposefully loop back around to.

  1. Hey everybody! This was the best all-encompassing podcast I’ve heard in a long time. Lots of things to comment on.

    Soccer: I am not a fan of soccer, or any other major league sports, but don’t have a problem with people who do. I don’t think it’s stupid, but I just don’t care for it. If someone wants to talk about sports, I’ll even listen, but will let them know up front I don’t participate. What I really like is watching athletics. I only get to watch it every four during the Olympics or trying to find clips on YouTube, because I’m not paying $50.00 a month to watch it on special channels.

    Walmart Selling DC Comics 100-page Original Stories: My Walmart has sold DC comics packages in a three-pack for quite a while now and has sold Trade Paperbacks in the past. Not so much now since they have reduced the size of their books and magazines. As someone who currently works at Walmart, Walmart will never replace the Local Comic shop because they will never dedicate shelf space to back-issues. They will most likely have a box by the self checkouts with these stories in them. If the LCS buys the comics at Walmart to sell them in their shops, Walmart gets the sale. Walmart isn’t focused on the amout of the sale, but the volume of sales.

    Heyday of Comics: Where I live, there was no LCS in the 1990s. The comics I did find, I got comics at a grocery store, the newsstand, or a gas station. I just found out recently that Dark Knight over Metropolis has 3 issues that lead up to it! I also didn’t find an LCS until I got back into comics in January 2013.

    Toxic Fandom: Fandom is defined as a subculture composed of fans characterized by a feeling of empathy and camaraderie with others who share a common interest. I feel this is open to interpretation in the sense that your level of fandom and devotion for something may be more than mine, but I can still be a true fan. I like Batman, but haven’t liked anything in the comics since Night of the Owls. Does this mean I’m not a true fan because I prefer to find Batman comics from 1970-1990?

    And that’s all I got. Thank you for all you do.
