    Thank you for your kind words on this podcast.
    I will try to be more brief in my comments this time.
    Bomb Queen sounds incredibly raunchy, which done well can be very interesting. Have any of you read Martial Law? It is an old title, but reads and illustrates the same over the top madness you describe for the Bomb Queen. I will give her a try.

    I would like to hear about J.S.’s experience with Star Wars. Overall, I have heard sterling reviews of the writing and art on the various series produced by Dark Horse. With successes such as the Star Wars comics, Hellboy and the many other series they produce, I think you should look at them for your issue to issue or pick of the week segments.

    Jason, I really was a fan of Cable when he first arrived in Marvel. However, I found that he became lost as a character after Liefeld jumped ship. His involvement in Cable and Deadpool was really flat compared to the vibrant Deadpool. His subsequent use in the Xtitles just seemed like a means to an end. He literally became a man out of time, trapped in the flashy nineties struggling for meaning in the 21st C. I hope the new series does bring him some more direction.

    I enjoyed Steve’s Ultraverse podcast. I was more of a Valiant fan, but I must admit many of the ideas they had for stories were very avant garde. Even now, the concepts put forth, such as Prime seems to be at the heart of current concepts like Mark Millar’s Superior. It’s a shame more wasn’t done with the imprint.

    I said I wouldn’t ramble, but I did again. Stay entertaining, read the Valiant reduxes and critique more independents – J.S., keep trying to get on Comixology or I suggest reading Feeding Grounds put out by Arcacia books.

    In any event, thanks and great show.

    One more thing, to refute America’s disinterest in Canada and Canadian superheroes. Alpha Flight under John Byrne had direction. More importantly, because of John Byrne’s knowledge of Canada, I think its depiction was more interesting in the beginning.

    After awhile though, the plots were going too mystical and marvel’s mystical characters weren’t as interesting as the company traversed the eighties and went into the nineties.

    Marvel’s premiere Canadian team of heroes became trapped in storylines that were reminiscent of poorly written Doctor Who episodes with forgettable villains and even moreso, forgettable character evolution. The team took its lowest form when it became an absurd joke with characters like Puck II and Major Mapleleaf.

    Your report on the mini “Fear Itself” story intrigues me and I will go out to check it out. Hopefully, the House of Ideas has finally found Alpha’s place in the Marvel universe.
