Top Five:  Characters That We Miss

Look.  We don’t have a lot of time.  NO TIME.  We need you to know that there are Mega Man comics.  We have never read a Mega Man (or woman) comic before, but we’re sure it’s simply delightful!  Mega Man 1 was much harder than any video game ever had a right to be.  Mega Man 2 is as classic as the croissant, but Mega Man 3 may be when everything was firing on all those light, buttery, flaky cylinders.


Dr. Wily is too close to Mega Man's crotch.  It's making me uncomfortable.

Earth 603 Podcast – Episode #24 – Super Insane-o Best of 2012!

Dear Earth 603-ves,

We’ve missed you greatly and we are oh-so-happy to hold you close to our collective cyber-bosom again.

This episode, is titled, “Episode #24”.  But we felt that wasn’t descriptive enough.

So we subtitled it, “Super Insane-o Best of 2012”!  We felt that was pretty descriptive.

But we wanted to celebrate the end of our first year in style.  And what is more stylish that inviting back all of our special guests to help us talk about the Best (and in some cases – the Worst!) in comics of 2012!  Our favorite artists, writers, books, characters, single issues, sleeper series, etc.  We also talk about what we’re looking forward to in 2013!

We do all of this with help from our friends Jill, Manager Supreme Rich, Larry, & J0n!

But what of the secret surprise at the end of the podcast?

What of the ridiculously insane-o contest  that Jetpack announces through Rich at the end of the podcast?

How are you going to use 200 of your own words to convince Stu & Zach that you should be the grand prize winner?!  The grand prize winner for an ENTIRE YEAR!  An Entire Year of . . . well . . . I guess you’ll need to listen to the podcast to find out!

In the meantime, here’s a look at what our all-star panel picked for the best single issues of the year!  (But who picked which?!  Again – you’ll have to listen to find out!)  [Let’s cut the suspense.  We all know Stu picked Dancer #5.]
