(Plus I think his surname is pronounced a-ha) Log in to Reply Bobby Shortle August 15, 2013 Paul thanks for listening! Sorry we didn’t get to your questions this time around. But we will try and hit them tomorrow morning! Did you enjoy yourself? Log in to Reply Paul August 15, 2013 Yeah I really like the show. Been catching the two new video features these past couple of weeks but only after their recorded. I’m in the UK so its no wonder. Day off here so catching up on my comics & stuff. Finally – really enjoy the podcast its by far my favourite, been listening over a year now! Bobby Shortle August 15, 2013 Paul. I’m always amazed we have so many listeners from across the pond. Thank you for letting us keep you company on your day off! Paul August 15, 2013 Vin Disel should be Drax surely? Although his wooden acting would be ideal for Groot. Log in to Reply Paul August 15, 2013 Do you guys think we’ll get any back story on the guardians in the movie? I imagine a lot of people will be wanting to know Rockets origin. Log in to Reply Paul August 15, 2013 I think you need to be reading Avengers and New Avengers along with Infinity, the check list places the issues at some strategic points: Log in to Reply M. Da Ponte August 15, 2013 Great show guys. Bobby you mentioned at the beginning that a great thing about Comics and Coffee is that you don’t have to wait a week in order to talk about a breaking story on the podcast; will the rest/some of the Talking Comics crew make an appearance if the news is big enough? If not, that’s all right, you and Mara are doing an awesome job. I’m sure I’m not alone in saying this, but the commitment to doing something like this is very much appreciated. On a side note that scathing “review” you posted on twitter yesterday, Bobby, was simply abhorrent. It’s better not to even call attention to things like that and give that cretin the attention they are so obviously seeking. Log in to Reply Bobby Shortle August 15, 2013 Thank you for the kind words! I don’t think we will be having other TC guests on Comics and Coffee unless its tectonic sized news….BENDIS TO DC or something like that. But never fear the other members of the gang will have their shot to talk about this kind of news of the main show still. As far as that review I honestly posted it more because of the sheer level of ridculousness it provided. There are plenty of others that are much more insipid that I don’t because they are plain mean. I do agree it’s better to focus on the positive though which is by far the bulk of the reaction we get.
