Yeah, an hour and change...about average for one of our shows, although we've definitely run longer. :)

Marvel canceled a ton of good stuff these past couple months:

- Thor the Mighty Avenger
- Young Allies
- Spider-Girl
- Hawkeye & Mockingbird

All books that I really enjoyed and looked forward to every month, more so than X-Men spin-off #23 or Avengers Title #5 or Shitty Deadpool Limited #5000. I think it really comes down to the "big guns" and not canceling those series and creating tons of spin-offs and other shit. It's very depressing, because no matter how much press you get about a book most people seem to ignore it, where as Deadpool and Wolverine sells simply based on character alone and less so about any sort of writing quality. :-/

- Big Shots was pretty impressive, mostly because they haven't been known as "Marvel" guys lately. Rucka on Punisher sounds beautiful.

- Death of Spider-Man reminds me of Ultimate Six back when U.Spiderman crossed over with Ultimates. I have a feeling that's the same sort of story telling that will be going on, like an every other issue sort of a deal.

- I wouldn't count on issue 600, remember when Red Hulk's identity was revealed in Hulk 600? Yeah, me neither.

More to come later. I'd love to be on the show again.
