  1. The scripted podcasts sound really cool. Do you have to pay for a subscription to listen to spotify podcasts? That augmented reality that tied into The GL movie sounded really cool as well. I’m sorry I missed it. I’m not sure how much interest they would have in it, but it would be awesome if they did more of that connected to the comics. Even allowing the readers to solve mysteries along with the comic characters. I recently discovered serialbox which has a lot of professionally done audio books with added music and sound effects. There are several original marvel books on the site, as well as a Flash one. I wonder if they will continue to add DC content there as well. As far as the comic chat. We recently discussed the Green Lantern season 2 number 4 in the Green Lantern book club. I definitely had a hard time with this issue. The alien dialogue was unnecessarily difficult, and this was coming after issue 2 where we had a similar problem. Even Hal and Barry’s dialogue was off and unnatural in places. And the last couple issues have been disjointed with Hal just having a spew of dialouge to explain everything, because it was not laid out in the rest of the issue. Also, why were the aliens taking the shape of toys to invade Earth, other than the fact it had to connect to Olivia Reynolds in some way? The poem left me with questions as well. I have not been a huge fan of the last few issues, and I find myself looking forward to getting back into space and on with the main plot again. But I think like most of Morrison’s stuff it will read better all together. As always, thanks for the fun content!
