    Good episode! In the description, it’s “Frison”, not “Frisson”. Put some respect on her name.

    Looking forward to someone posting Venomized Khoi. lol

    I REALLY enjoyed that one. Thanks for taking the time to put out a quality podcast with REAL TALK bout comics. 40$ haircuts!? My wife cuts my hair…….and you can tell

    Cormier is superior to Jones in my opinion. Cormier is an overachiever, whilst Jones succeeds because of his freaky physical attributes.

    Who was it that got kicked out of hastings? What was the story behind that? I just recently started listening to you guys for the past 3 podcast. Just found you guys. Love the podcast

    As always great podcast. I did miss my fellow Canadian Jimmy giving Mel the gears. I would like to enter my two cents on what is wrong with the comic industry.

    1) Cost. A $4 comic costs $5.40 Canadian after exchange. Its getting very expensive and pushes new collectors out. I let my twin girls pick out a book each (my little Pony and frozen an it costs me close to $11 for both) Way to expensive in my option. I don’t try out new books just strictly on cost.

    2) Constant relaunches especially by Marvel makes it too hard to follow series if you fall behind

    3) Cash Grabs – These constant event books that are put out to increase the bottom line hurt my wallet and are usually garbage. I can say that I have stayed away from event books and with the reviews of Civil War 2 I am glad I have. I wish these events would be contained in the regular series issues. I used to love when Marvel ran events in the regular issues (X-tinction agenda, Inferno etc, Batman A lonely place of dying)

    4) Poor Art and Stories or Characters we don’t care about

    5) Books no one cares about – Way too many bad Marvel books to bring up

    6) Too many options. How many Avengers, X-men or Batman books do I need? Currently marvel has (Extraordinary X-men, Uncanny X-men and All New X-men) too many books in my opinion self competing for customers money. I dropped All Star Batman as I could not justify $7 a month Canadian for the nook. I like Scott Snyder but not for almost the same amount I am paying for Netflix.

    7) Again Cost – DC was doing a great job at $2.99 but now with the price increase on some monthlies to $4 I am rethinking those monthlies. Supersons is a great book that I think Kids would love but too expensive. Sales volumes are dropping. Look at when Marvel comics were around $2 (Amazing 300 and X-men 1) they were selling hundreds of thousands of copiies now they are lucky to be selling 100K

    8) Books need more advertisements – Come on Marvel where are the Disney Ad’s? I am a father of two five year old twin girls give me some Disney ads or something I am someone you want to be advertising to.

    I have read comics since I was 12 and I want to see more people buying comics. It’s up to the publishers to do more to make it successful. Brick and Mortar stores also need to do better. I was in a store in Mississauga the other day and started asking the retailer how sales where. I also asked the retailer what he was reading and what he enjoyed. He told me he did not read comics anymore. I thanked him and left but was surprised as I thought if that’s your job you need to be knowledgeable and need to be able to talk to your customers about what your selling.

    Sorry for the rant I just love comics and want to see the industry survive and do well.

    Remember the old phrase “Make mine Marvel” what ever happened to that?
