HEROES DISCUSSION GROUP :: This Monday at 7pm!

This Monday we'll be holding the next installment of our Heroes Discussion Group, hosted by the inimitable and indefatigable Andy Mansell. Yes yes, I know that Andy already posted all about it here, BUT I thought I'd draw a little extra attention to this one, as it's a little special. Ladies and Gentlemen, I humbly present:


1) We'll be discussing one of the most popular and fan-favorite books of the last several years, The Invincible Iron Man Volume One: The Five Nightmares, by Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca.

2) None other than super-writer Matt Fraction will be joining us via the modern miracle of the speakerphone, and will cheerfully submit himself to grilling by both Andy and you.

3) Adam Daughetee (I don't think I spelled that right; what is that, Italian?) of The Dollar Bin will be in the hizzy as well, recording the whole thing for posterity. THIS MAY BE YOUR BEST SHOT AT IMMORTALITY (personal religious views notwithstanding)!!

4) I will be there as well, running the register for when you want to thank us for putting such an excellent evening together. You're welcome!

But seriously, folks! This is sure to be one of our better attended Discussion Groups, and I know that Andy is working hard on his own arcane preparations, which he undertakes before each Discussion Group. And also before the Renaissance Festival. Anyway. Be sure to show up early to get a good seat!

Sweet! If Adam is going to be there then I will definitely make an appearance.

Matty Fraction via something called a "speaker phone" i'll be there just to marvel at the wonder of this intriguing device!

All kidding aside Matt, setting up a speaker phone for a pod cast in an area that was never designed for technical broadcasts proved to be a decent sized challenge for Adam and the gang.
They did a bang up job.
Adam had to monitor the equipment and make constant adjustments to the sound quality.
All in all a superb job-- it was a terrific evening!

That was more than a bit of a challenge ,Andy, I agree. I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion group, as always! Does anyone know when and where the podcast will be posted? As I was saying last night I would love it if we did the "Usagi Yojimbo" Grasscutter arc, but I don't think we should do it next, because there's so much to it. I still think that if and when we do discuss any manga this would be a good crossover book to do. As I said I thoroughly enjoyed last night and I look forward to next time!

Sorry I missed this, Andy. I'm sure it was enlightening and it must have been a blast to have Fraction join in.
