Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right? Stephanie is a purveyor of too many projects and outside of Talking Comics she’s done work for JoBlo.com, Agents of Geek, Word of the Nerd, C&G Magazine, Dork Shelf, Misfortune Cookie (her personal blog for words and pictures) and more. She also runs Toronto Geek Trivia in her home city and can be found helping out at other “geek” community things around there.

    Hey guys…listening to your podcast at work…Stephanie is going to get me fired because I can’t stop laughing at her bizarre story telling methods. Love it!

    In other news, I think I might be one of the few people who didn’t think that Pacific Rim was a great movie. I didn’t think it was a bad movie either…I enjoyed it as a good escapist film that screams summertime. I think the story was OK, the special effects were great but I seem to be one of the few people haven’t gone nuts over the film. I tend to get pulled out of films when a romance is forced on me. I guess I feel as though if the end of the world is on the horizon I’m not sure I’m gonna focus on falling in love.

    Definitely enjoying all of your video content…gonna check out the morning show and the Youtube page ASAP. Loved the ShopTalk with Steve talking about the nuances of My Little Pony. I cracked up at the friends reaction.

    Keep up the good work…glad you guys are expanding the site…you’re doing AWESOME work!

    Greatly enjoying the new video features on the site. Coffee and Comics has been working out perfectly for me being three hours behind you all since it’s airing right before I leave for work in the morning. Brewed & Boarded sounds like something I’ll definitely want to check out because I’ve got a stack of books that need to be boarded and lots of booze that needs to be consumed.

    I also think a hangout on Wednesday nights (or even Thursday) to discuss new books would be a cool addition. As someone that has no comic reading friends, discussing new books with people has been kind of frustrating, so having a place to go and discuss with reasonable people would be a blessing. Just a suggestion.

    Oh, and after all this talk about Aquaman week in and week out I think I’m finally going to sample it when the third trade of Justice League (the Throne of Atlantis crossover) comes out. I’ve been meaning to check out both Aquaman and JL so this seems like the perfect time. Thanks for the recommendations.

    Thanks for reading my question about Beware The Batman!
    I know the animationstyle is strange and feels empty, but the story is really solid!
    They have lesser known villians because they can do more with them und redefine them. Magpie is the perfect female TwoFace and since there is no Robin, Katana is becoming the sidekick. Female characters are there and I am happy to see more stronge females soon.
    I really recommand to watch a few episodes to catch the tone of the series, even though the style might be bad at first.
    It’s a different take on Batman, he is still young and vulnerable and I think this MI6 Alfred is a cool fresh perspectiv on Alfred.
    The first episode was ok, but the following are better, I promise!
    I don’t really want to compare it to the classic 90s series, because it’s something entirely different and after 5 episodes I must admit, since Batman Beyond was my last cartoon, I love the show, because it feels really unique.
    Cheers,
    the Lobster
