  1. Hey, I'm finally back! Took me a while to get around to reading this graphic novel, but I was able to read most of it while waiting for my doctor's appointment yesterday.

    It was nice to have Sean as a guest host and I like how you didn't get all cutesey with the April Fool's of it all. I think the parallels you drew between the Redeemers and the Outsiders sold the reason for the episode.

    I've never read the Squadron Supreme run that precedes this story and admit I was a bit lost at times. Yes, Gruenwald did reference things that happened, but not knowing many of the characters meant it didn't mean much to me. I appreciate how you guys put everything in context and that made me read more enjoyable retroactively. My first encounter with the Squadron was in those Busiek Avengers issues you referenced and I'm not too far past their appearance in the Avengers/Heroes Reborn by Jason Aaron and company.

    I think my enjoyment of the reveal of the figure would have been much higher had I ever read the Project Pegasus issues of Two-in-One. Perhaps I will put that on my list. Speaking of, do you think it's worth going back and reading Quasar?

    Well, that's it for me now, but I have the next AotO issue already read and should be able to listen to that episode soon. I'm catching up!
