  1. I am a regular reader of the revolution and I've noticed with the introduction of the podcast, the revolution seems to have become "Rokk's Comic Book Rant" or soapbox as of late. The thing I love most about this blog is the knowledge about continuity and characters. Your views often provide a great background view that I would not experience just reading the comics myself.

    Since the introduction of the podcast however, what would normally be ten minutes of reading has turned into a 90 minute rant. I don't have to tell you about the attention span of Americans these days so I’m reminded of “kiss” and “miniskirts.” Kiss is an acronym I heard on “the Office” for keep it simple stupid and the purpose of a miniskirt is to be long enough to cover the subject but short enough to be interesting. I know you encourage differing opinions on the revolution so here is mine.

    It seems some of the last few podcasts that I've skimmed over were a little unorganized. Unlike your posts, they didn't seem to have a clear direction and a lot of things were repeated. I would suggest two things. As one would for public speaking, create cue cards to go off of and place a time limit on rants. That way the speaker is forced to move on to new material be it a critique or a praise of the subject… in this case, comics.

    Remember the rule of seven. People talk about things they dislike seven times more then things they like but the opposite is true for listening.

    Thanks for all your interesting perspectives and dedication to showing more then one layer in each book we read.
