    I had no idea my name made you want to ‘punch me in the face’, Optimus.

    I know you don’t care for me and needling humor is your thing, but wow. At least make your passive-aggressive proxies-in-absentia a little less obvious.

    Or at least more funny.

  2. JD (Host) says:

    What am I missing here? Lol

  3. Pink…Pink…Pink…

    Farthest thing from hate, we just disagree vehemently on a lot of things. Of course we do kumbayaya on some books as well. So, no…no hate.

    And it was the name Ralph that made “Lois” want to kick his ass. He simply ignored the second option of Pink.

  4. Just to prove my point further, if Margot Kidder said her underwear was green the splicing would have rolled the same.

  5. JD (Host) says:

    Oh that’s funny I had no idea you were saying Pink’s name! I listened to that part 3x and couldn’t hear it

  6. It was after he says the name Ralph. Lois then retorts, “How about a name that doesn’t make me want to kick your ass.” Supes then says Pink.

  7. Pink Apocalypse says:

    I’m pretty sure every interaction we have both past and future will always go something like this:


    Pretty sure that’s why I’ll never be on another podcast. Too much ‘disagreement’.

    I drove by a McDonalds on my way home the other day, and on the promo sign somebody wrote, ‘Have some Sausage with your Muffin!’. And despite every effort to prevent myself from doing it, the first thing I thought of was you idiots. You’re like an unwanted, annoying cerebral infection I can’t get rid of, but have more or less gotten used to.

  8. RolandDeschain` says:

    Please God(I mean Zod) stop giving Zack Snyder comic book movies. His movies look nice and pretty but as you gents mentioned this movie had no Heart, or really an overall message that goes with the Superman Mythos. I put this on the level of Watchmen, great cast, nice visuals, pretty lame movie…

  9. jaydee says:

    @pink: wow. ouch. Wouch. I don’t remember us disagreeing on the podcast, but ok. I’m glad we’ve had a positive effect on your life.

  10. jaydee says:

    so anyway…@Roland, I agree with you, sir. It’s got a LOT in common with Watchmen. I like both movies, but they could both be vastly improved, and given more of an emotional foundation to base all the action off of

  11. Robtimous says:

    John Bender – ill totally take that

  12. JD (Host) says:

    The problem with that clip is that they are stuck in a room together and he’s purposely trying to annoy her and she just wants to be left alone.

    None of those are true here.

    Also it’s important to note that those two characters make out later and he wears her earring with affection.

    Foreshadowing real life events?Probably.


  13. robtimous says:

    Our raw talent is like an escapable room…or a black hole.

  14. Pink Apocalypse says:

    No, I just ment the disagreements online.

    But come on…with a constant stream of ‘cum, piss, shit, sex jokes and liberal use of ‘cunt’ all the time? I don’t think labeling you guys a cerebral infection is too far out of bounds.

    Optimus and I would never end up together, in this reality or any other. It would collapse the universe.

  15. JD (Host) says:

    Well considering ur labeling people who haven’t labeled you…

  16. Pink Apocalypse says:

    Believe it or not, I ment ‘idiots’ somewhat affectionately, and the McD thing was ment to convey that.

    Sorry, JD…

  17. JD (Host) says:

    ohhhhhhh, got it. no worries :)

  18. I actually felt the love Pink, no worries. At the end of the day, no one forces you to listen and it’s not like the world is lacking in comic podcast material. So we must have some allure.

    It’s like scabs – we’re all grossed out by picking them yet we are drawn for some reason to do so. We are your comic scabs.

  19. Pink Apocalypse says:

    Meanwhile, comics.

    I’m surprised you didn’t give a review of issue 1 of that new American Vampire miniseries. I’ve been waiting on trades, and was curious if it A.) could be read outside the main series if a person was behind, or B.) was any good.

    I finally found issue one and two of Occupy Comics, and really dug them. Looking forward to the next one, and Bug’s contribution.

  20. Long Road to Hell was very good, but absolutely should not be read yet if you’re behind.

  21. JD (Host) says:

    ….and I am soooo behind! Lol

  22. It’s funny with OCCUPY comics, Ambush Bug never gives editorial mandates – I mean never. But when he asked us reviewers to take a look at it (which I end up doing 90% of these requests), he also asked that we not focus on our personal politics.

    Right then, I had to take a pass.

  23. Just get married JD – you will have infinitely more comic reading time.

  24. Rob Truthfeld says:

    I <3 poptards ‘cum, piss, shit, sex jokes and liberal use of ‘cunt.’

  25. I like what you guys are up too. This type of clever work and coverage!
    Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve included you guys
    to blogroll.

  26. Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the easiest factor to consider of.

    I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as people think about concerns that they just
    do not recognize about. You controlled to hit
    the nail upon the highest as well as outlined out the entire thing
    with no need side effect , folks can take a signal. Will
    likely be again to get more. Thank you

    Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search
    Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my
    blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m
    not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share.
    Thank you!

    I’ve been surfing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays, but
    I never found any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty price enough
    for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the web might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  29. mobile games says:

    You’ve made some decent points there. I checked on the
    internet for additional information about the issue and found most individuals will go along with your views on this site.

    Even if you jail break your phone and it goes smoothly, there is still a chance that problems can happen.
    You might be thinking 56 million to one hundred million is a big hole to fill.
