Task, thanks for listening (and posting!)

I know I said in April that we'd probably review this arc, but as always, PCX runs on "Trenchcoat time".

I recently downl-- I mean, acquired the whole run (thus far) of Walking Dead; hopefully, it lives up to all the hype.

...and Tim, you did a whole show on Return of the Super Pimps!

Lol, Damn Tim...lol...I thought Heroes for hire..was super corny at first man...but when I read the Doom robot story arc...I was hooked...One of the main heroes actually died, and the writing is actually funny to me.

The kid, "Why do you hate christmas?"
Humbug,"Huh?"
The kid, "You name is humbug isn't it?"

Lol, I love it.....

Yo Trench, I love the show dude keep it coming. Can't wait to hear your opinion of The Walking Dead.

Yo Timmy Thoom!! You're still the man in my book...your podcast is one of my must listens.

Yo Trench Doggy Dog, sorry to keep postin like this but...thanks for mentioning me at the start of the show. I really appreciate it and I will return the favor on our next show.

I always wondered what the deal was with the original Thunderbolts.


On another note, you two are developing great chemistry.

Here is a gift, hope you don't already have it:

Sorry for posting? Are you kidding?! We want feedback - it's always cool to be reminded that we're not just talking to ourselves here.

Mucho thanks for the link - that's one of those sites where I'm like, "must download everything I want before these guys get shut down or something!"

...and you know, that's actually a good question re: Tim's favorite books. In his defense, there's a lot to hate in the current post-52/Civil War crop of comics.

Stuff I read:

WWH
Supergirl ad the Legion
The Boys
Black Summer
Detective Comics (Dini)
I'll be picking up the rest of Black Adam
I'd like to get all the Superman/Action stuff with Jimmy Olsen, but the wallet is tight.

Trench, you think you could download Shadowman #6 from that link? It's under Valiant. On the cover is a big butch Redeck woman attempting to take SM apart with an axe. Hoping you could pull another panel like you did with Black Adam. Let me know if you can do it, and I'll pick a panel.

Mission accomplished. And hell, every panel in that book's a winner (because you can never go wrong with Steve Ditko!)

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Booster Gold is a great character, in fact ahead of his time. You're just upset a white hero for hire did it better than a black one.

Heroes, TV series could have been good but I think they messed up by having too many writers who were doing their own thing, and I don't think many of them ever read a comic book and not seemingly to have an end game, what was the pt? It got so episode to episode their powers were different, Hiro can travel into the past, now he can but only to certain times, can't change the past, can change the past, it's killing him, not killing him. Blah.

Just cause they are villains doesn't mean they can't care about people. Catwoman is a thief but she's not really a killer. Most of the Thunderbolts became supervillains because they were outcasts or outsiders but when they became heroes they became part of society.

Wouldn't it be fun if they had a character whose hairline keep changing in every issue? And after a year of readers complaining it would turn out to be an alien parasite or his power. "What the fuck is up with your hair?", pointing a gun at the guy's head.

Wait, Passion of the Christ? I would think that would be enough evidence for the symbiote to understand the Catholic God is myth.

"Oh cool, rockets!" and that's why the X-15 was mothball for the Apollo program. Apollo had the jazzmatazz while X-15 was just a space plane, breaking records quietly.

Didn't Norman say he had them shackled as a show of who's in charge?

My problem with Civil War 7 was why teleport them into middle of Manhattan? Where property damage would happen. Why not upstate or Nevada or Canada. Or Central Park even.

There was a Golden Oldie story? I thought it was just a bit in What if?

Is this porn music with lyrics?

How do you like the Walking Dead TV series.
