    Uhm....ok....meanwhile, regarding the podcast....

    by 3774

    Silk Spectre was SO SO GOOD. Drunk podcasting sounds like a brilliant idea, but it's a good thing Matt would be sober. Somebody would probably need to drive the bus from topic to topic, although, I imagine there would be some serious heckling directed toward him. The Ultimates universe is not redundant, Bug! Once upon a time, Marvel had tight continuity, progressive, lasting consequences, and death wasn't an evolving door! Doesn't a return to that sound nice!?! Give them a flip!! Exclamation marks!!! Optimus reading his own review was a bizarre, strangely-uncomfortable thing to hear. Probably more so for him to read. I have the alternate cover of JD's Cancer #1 pre-ordered. A blue, Avatar-looking testicle swinging a lightsaber and screaming 'There can be only one' has to be an instant classic, if only by virtue of all the veins and utility belt pouches alone. Written and drawn by Rob Liefeld.

    Silly Girl Talking About The Subject

    by optimous_douche

    Yes, I hated reading my own review, but I didn't feel like doing extra work this week.

    Where has Sara Pichelli been all my life?

    by Snookeroo

    Spider-Men has some of the most stunning artwork/coloring of any comic on the shelves in recent history. Bendis' story is intriguing and entertaining. I usually balk at paying Marvel's cover price (especially for digital, my preferred medium), but for this I'll gladly shell out every month. Bravo!

    JD's Testicle Page One

    by optimous_douche

    PANEL 1 A black testicle and a white testicle float within JD's nutsack. BOX OUT: I am alone. My perfect Brother produces his semen like Old Faithful gushing into the unknown of outer space PANEL 2 Close on the darkened testicle we can now see nodes formed on his carapace BOX OUT: I however produce nothing. I am ravaged day in and day out by the harbingers of doom that threaten to consume me. PANEL 3 The panel starts to shake PANEL 4 Again another violet shake PANEL 5 Bad Testie: My God, again? Good Testie: It must be his anniversary PANEL 6 Good Testie: I don't know if I have anything left to give. When are you going to start pulling your goddamn weight around here. Bad Testie: I'm dying you prick PANEL 7 Voice from outside panel VOICE OVER: Did someone call me?

    In regards to Mysterio

    by Wcwlkr

    He had come back during Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. In an arc where he took on Spider-Man and the new Mysterio at the time Francis Klum. It did appear he had some hell based powers given to him by un-named person. It played into the period were they were trying to make Spider-Man's powers be more cosmic or destiny based. But during Spider-Man arc, The Gauntlet he came back & claimed he had faked his Death and they never mentioned all that other stuff.

    by optimous_douche

    PANEL 1 The two testies shake violently Good: No penis I was calling Blackie a prick, but thanks for listening. PANEL 2 VOICE OUT Prick: You guys are lucky I can hear anything he's gripping me so damn tight. PANEL 3 Good: Whoa whoa whoa he's been fucking masturbating this whole time? PANEL 4 Black testicle: I'm dying VOICE OUT Prick: Of course he's masturbating, this has been going on for literal minutes now. PANEL 5 Good Testicle: Oh right, he needs instant service when there's an actual vagina involved.

    Can we pre-order the JD Testicle book???

    by KCViking

  • the ole "Ukranian Monacle" which is my patented move wherein I "teabag" you by gently laying my testicle on your one of your eyes.

    JD's TESTICLE COMIC comes polybagged...

    by Ambush Bug

    At least I think that's a polybag. But I don't understand why it's flesh colored... or why it smells like cooked almonds.

    Just pre-ordered the variant die-cut chromium cover for JDT's (vol.1) #1

    by Xenodistortion

    Guest starring Death's Head 2 (AND KILLPOWER!). JD, I'm sure this isn't the first time you've heard a dude say this, but your junk pretty entertaining. Love the podcast. Loving the ballcast even more.

    Spider-Men #1 for the win this week. Great fucking read. Batman & Robin too. I waited a few months to get started on the new Batman books so I had a sizeable chunk of material to read and I have to say, I wasn't disappointed. For the most part I really dislike the shit out of what DC is doing to their books, but I loves me some Batman, so it's good to see them NOT fucking that up at least.
