      Thanks so much!

      I hope that a certain podcast co-host of our mutual acquaintance won’t be too upset if I return the sentiment, my good lady?

    So we know that the Dark Horse Star Wars Expanded Universe is not longer in official Star Wars continuity. But what about the comics directly tied into The Clone Wars TV show (like the Darth Maul books)? Are they really totally wiping EVERYTHING out?

      No matter what ‘The Suits’ do, one of the best things about comics is that you can always read your back issues and recreate whatever universe you’d like to have your favorite characters inhabit! (In my DC Universe for instance, there is still a Justice Society that fought evil-doers during the Second World War, and Barbara Gordon is Oracle leading the Birds of Prey!) I’ve found this ‘self-hypnosis’ does take some of the sting away from re-booted continuities whilst waiting for the pendulum to swing back!

    Hi, I just got out of class so I have missed quite a bit of it, but congratulations on your 150th episode! Do you think you will reboot now? You could call the next show TALKING All-New 52 Secret Infinite Civil War Crisis That Will Change the Podcast Universe Forever COMICS #1.

    Thanks for all of your hard work.
    Best, Carolyn

      You’ve caught us out–how did you get our secret plan for world domination!

      Not only are we re-booting, but we’ll have 150 variant featured images at the top of the post, all of them in full-motion 3-D “Hypno-vision”.

      (Have no fear, Loyal Listeners; we will be true to ourselves in that any image that falls into the broke-back/Escher-girl realm will have a Hawkeye Initiative-styled counter!)
