I’m curious – did you ever read the Phantom comics? I haven’t seen anything written about them on here (though I’m a new reader) so if you have, it would be great to read a review of them (or whatever you wanted to write about them).

If you haven’t read them, obviously you can’t write anything about them, but I’d suggest you check them out. Don’t know how available they are here though.

Three Movie Executives are ALWAYS awesome.

Also your photoshopped parodies, of which you have never made a bad one yet.

Also too, more ‘General Nerdery’ threads, because there’s nothing I like better than a thread about Star Wars that runs to a hundred replies.

I second the request for more Canadian politics. People look at me funny when I refer to our current government as barely competent and occasionally malfeasant, and it’s starting to feel kinda lonely.

More photoshoppy goodness.

Something like a reader mailbag in which you respond to and/or ridicule people that email you.

More Law posts. You haven’t had one in a couple months. Like your old links to The Court articles and comments about the material. While not the core of your topic material, I find those posts very interesting and entertaining.

Well, I’ve finally gotten some of my old law-school on-board, but they don’t really get the comics-centric stuff. So I’d like to chip in some more “mainstream geek culture” articles (Star Wars, etc.), and your legal/political articles are pretty entertaining.

How about a retrospective of Garth Ennis’s Hitman (and why people should read it)?

…or an attempt to reconcile the vast list of Goblins it seems Marvel has churned out over the years?

…or just keep on truckin’ on what you do best, swinging wildly between political observation, pop culture commentary, and comic fandom musings, because it’s damned pretty.

I’d like to see more redialogued comics,more ‘shopped book covers — the fighting fantasy ones still crack me up — and maybe something to do with various fantasy series.

Maybe opinions on series of books worth picking up — I’ve been reading Cornwell’s Arthur/Warlord trilogy and enjoying it a lot.

Or maybe thoughts on tie in/franchise books — yeah yeah I read a lot of Warhammer novels, sue me ! :()

Back in your post about the Harvey Awards, you mentioned that you thought Steve Dillon should’ve gotten a nomination for Best Artist. Which is kind of a controversial choice, judging from the comments (by which I mean that I wasn’t the only one baffled by it).

So I wouldn’t mind hearing your opinion about why Steve Dillon is a good artist, and why you think he particularly deserved a nomination this year. Personally, I’d put Amanda Conner on the list before him, but your mileage apparently varies.

How about you apply your brilliant cognitive powers to explaining exactly why it was that so many of my peers worshipped the movie “The Mighty Ducks” when they were young.

Failing that, if you’ve ever read the “Thieves and Kings” comic strip my Nova Scotian writer Mark Oakley, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.

Hellboy. BPRD. Mike Mignola. Your thoughts? Do you read them?

While my foray into comics is rather limited, Hellboy is a consistent favorite of mine thanks to the surprisingly satisfying blend of international mythologies, pulpy action and Nazi fighting, and (of course) endless Lovecraftian influences and references, all united by the common thread of a guy who flips destiny the bird and punches it in the face with his giant rock hand.

I was wondering if you felt the same way.

Uh…I know the first two installments are like, 4 pages back now, but more of the national anthem grading series would be pretty sweet. More Superman stuff would be nice, too . And I know you said you’d ignore “I should write” requests, but your Doctor Strange posts are what got me into that series, and I love the shit out of it now. So anything featuring the good Doctor would be really, really awesome.

Board Games! It’s been ages since you’ve written anything on the subject, but I recall that you used to…

For example, you could do a multi-stage dissertation of Uwe Rosenberg’s “Harvest Trilogy” (Agricola, Le Havre, At the Gates of Loyang)… which is the best? Which is your favourite? How would Geoff Johns ruin them?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on assorted nerd musicians, who you think works, who doesn’t, and perhaps why.

I’m sure we’ve all heard of Jonothan Coulton, and most will have heard of MC Frontalot, but what other performers/bands are out there that might be good?

This is big in my mind at the moment because I stumbled over Kirby Krackle earlier this week completely by accident, and they are consuming my headspace in way that hasn’t happened since I found They Might Be Giants in the early 90’s.
