Q & A: I Want Your Questions!

So, I've got some free time on my hands and I thought now would be a good time to do a different sort of Vlog, wherein you guys asked me questions, both minor ones or common ones, and I'll answer the ones that I feel would work best. Go ahead and ask anything you want, even personal stuff, since I can freely discard those if I feel like it. ^_^

So go on, ask away!

EDIT: To clarify, I plan to answer the ones I want to in a video, not in the comments. ‎

You do a lot of cons in the Midwest; is there any chance of you coming to a convention on the East Coast, particularly the Northeast?

Minnesota is a ways from New Jersey.

I've been wondering this for a while: How old ARE you dude?

And also, how long do you envision yourself doing AT4W?

captian ghost said...

When did you start reading comic books?

Dan Shive said...

Which super hero costumes are among your favorites? I'm particularly curious about your favorite female super hero costumes given that you've provided many examples already of female costumes you haven't liked.

MR. M aka Lotuz said...

How many books you read in a year and what is your favorite novel of all time? Pardon my english, it's not my first language

I've seen you go around with some of the TGWTG crew to anime cons and wondered if there were any anime series you particularly dug?

Do you have any guilty pleasure comics? Or in other words, comcis that are just bad, yet you still enjoy to read anyways?

Are there any comics, movies, or games that you would outright refuse to review and for what reason(s)?

Would you ever want to write for a main DC/Marvel book? If so, starring what character(s)?

What was your favorite comics series that lasted only five issues or less, but was meant to be a long series?

That's all I've got.

Thanks,

Patch O'Black said...

Well, I was going to ask what you thought of my own web-series, but that seems rather self-centered, and assumes that you even care. :)

So, instead, I'll ask a deeper, more important question...

How do you like your bacon?

Anonymous said...

I've been watching your History of Power Rangers since the beginning and I've enjoyed it. My question is that out of all the Power Rangers series you've yet to review which are you looking forward to the most?

Seijimei said...

We all know what comics REALLY grind your gears, but what are the books you can't recommend enough? Ongoing series, graphic novels, and so forth?

BeoXXVI said...

Hey Linkara,

Sorry if this question has been answered previously in perhaps some of your early videos, but...

What would you say is your all-time favorite issue of a comic book series? And if that's too specific, then just your favorite series?

~BeoXXVI

Echo said...

Who would win in a fight, Spawn or Wolverine? They are fighting in a blank room of infinite size. They are both aware that they are to fight and neither can get the drop on the other. No outside object or allies; they can only use weapons that are naturally a result of their powers or personages. This is a quandary that has stumped a large group of critical thinkers since it's inception.

Cyros said...

Well, I might as well give your little experiment a shot:

Question: What is you opinion, in general, on webcomics?

SMX said...

Canadian Otaku Gamer said...

You've talked a lot about the Clone Saga in AT4W. After reading Life of Reilly and the dozens of possible "endings" proposed, I wondered what would you have considered the ideal ending to that unending mess?

ezim93 said...

I couldn't help but notice that you have a generation 1 Blaster. Are you a transformers fan and if so what is your history with the franchise and will we be possibly seeing any Transformers comics on your show?

Mason said...

Hey Linkara. My friend and I love your show. We're currently reading 52 volume by volume after your endless plugging made us wonder "Can it really be that good?" And it is. My question is what else could we read after we're done with 52 that's equally awesome?

VincentVendetta said...

You've got an extra "i" in "Questions"

dontey_3911 said...

Who is your favorite Power Ranger?

Cin Wicked said...

Um you do a lot of crossovers with the other Channel Awesome reviewers, but do/have you ever done crossovers with people not on Channel Awesome? And (if I can sneak a second question in) are you open to the possibility of such in the future?

Lew Smith said...

What are some of your favorite writer/artist collaborations in comics?

50cr4t3s said...

Can we look forward to more cross overs between you and Spoony in the near future?

Funnyguts said...

How much were you involved with the writing for Kickassia? Did you do most of the writing for your own character, or did you let Doug and Rob do the writing and maybe tweaked a few lines here and there?

DaftRaider42 said...

We know that The Seventh Doctor is your favourite of the eleven, but what is your all time favourite Doctor Who story out of all the one you've seen?

(interestingly, my Word Verification word is thmardis?!)

S. James said...

Heya Linkara, if you produced your dream film adaptation of a comic, which comic would it be and who would star in it? :)

Nah, seriously now.

What went into deciding on the official outfit you wear for your reviews (the hat, coat, flannel under the coat, etc.)?

Aaron said...

I know I already asked, but I was wondering what you think of the Spider-Girl Series? I personally enjoy them.

TheDVDGrouch said...

Hey sorry if you have answered this question before but whats your favorite non-comic book related movie.

Keeva said...

Have you been watching the new Doctor Who, and if so, what do you think of Matt Smith?

Jeffrey Morales said...

I'll go with the "shotgun approach" and try different things to see if anything sticks.

1. What is your relationship with Spoony? You guys have done numerous crossovers but the actual history of you two isn't clear.

2. What do you think of Brian Bendis? Is he a washed up has-been who should have stopped at Alias and Ultimate Spider-Man or a bad writer?

3. I might be wrong about this, but I cannot find it in the archives: why have you never done a One More Day video review? Is it a beaten horse?

4. Have you ever thought of doing a TV show or other large scale project?

5. Where's the hat from?

6. Having gone through the History of Power Rangers (thanks by the way, you made me get into it and buy the re-released toys and Megazord), do you think the show could be made into a mature movie, a la Transformers and GI: Joe? Mature being used in a very liberal fashion. Believe it or not I work in film and sometimes joke about writing a sentai-style movie.

7. Did you feel nervous about making Dr. Linksano, given how badly Spoony's Bum was recieved?

Scot said...

How many wrestling comics have you read? Also, have you picked up the recent WWE Heroes series?

Razorclaw said...

Dear Linkara,

As a huge fan of your comic book reviews and a Transformers fan, have you ever thought about reviewing a Transformers comic? If so, which comic would you review?

Andrenn said...

You review a lot of comics, most of them bad, but some really are up for opinion like the Frank Miller Batman books. Do you agree that sometimes not everything is so black and white good or bad and that opinion in some comics can be the real deciding factor? I mean sure Sultry Teenage Super Foxes is a godawful comic, nothing redeeming about it. But there's plenty to like in All Star Batman and Dark Knight Strikes Again, so to blatantly say they suck isn't really fair, wouldn't you agree? If it sucks to you that's fine, but not everything is that black and white in quality.

Do you read any current Image Comics and if so what are they?

What is your opinion on Marvel's harsher cancellation policy, canceling books just as the first arc ends if they don't sell well.

If you could bring back one canceled comic, what would it be?

DC seems to be having some trouble with the Bright part in Brightest Day, whats your opinion how much darker things have gotten?

Would you be willing to do a reader suggestion video more often? I really did enjoy the one you did for Christmas.

Do you collect comic statues of action figures?

Do you ever meet any comic creators outside of conventions?

What review are you most proud of ?

Will you be doing more commentaries in the near future?

Any plans for another video game review?

What are some recent comics that have really pissed you off?

Out of all the comic brands(like Marvel or DC) which one threw out the years has finally reach their best in producing comics, and which one has hit rock bottom?

Kavinsky said...

can you show us the review room its entirety and show close ups of the models in the background?

ThatFellowWithTheHat said...

Serious Question - Have you ever noticed how you now have the ability to make and break people over the internet? For example, you could say "This guy is awesome!" and link to someone's YouTube channel and they'd probably become famous, and likewise you could say "This guy sucks!" , resulting in mass internet hating. I'm just intrigued if you've ever noticed how much power you, and Channel Awesome as a whole, have now.

Stupid Question - What is your favourite type of cheese?

2) Where'd you get the Magic Gun and the sword from? Did you find 'em at an antique shop or something?

3) What's your favorite Doctor Who monster? XD

4) How did you get into Star Trek? Did your parents watch it? (And do you also like Star Wars, or are you only a Trekkie? XD) (P.S. I still envy how cool your family is.)

5) Do you have a day job?

6) Do you have any other non-comics/non-videos hobbies?

Tezzle said...

From someone who only recently got into comic books, they seem to be getting harder and harder for newcomers to break into. Continuity's one issue, you can't just pick up the latest issue of most comics without being lost whenever someone shows up or something is mentioned that wasn't first introduced in that issue, or maybe even that specific series.

Another issue is the sheer NUMBER of comics, especially when they're all dedicated to one hero. I mean, if I want to be completely on top of what's going on in Gotham City I need to get Batman, Detective Comics, Batman & Robin, Red Robin, and Batgirl. And sure, I do that and enjoy it, but I'm sort of stuck if I want to branch out very far into more comics. Even if I had a steady income, I don't want to blow it all on comic books.

So how do you recommend newcomers break into comic books and how do they manage their spending once they do?

Jacob V said...

JeanJacket said...

Actual comic/review-related questions:

- Ever read Doctor McNinja? Any opinion on it?

- Will there ever be a crossover between mega-stars Bear and Beary?

- Is your fear that you will never be as great as the Bee Gees the reason that you don't sing as much in your reviews anymore? Or does Harvey just not want the competition? (In all seriousness, the singing was cool...)

- If you could write an issue of your favorite comic series, what would happen in it?

- Oh, and my sister wants to know what your favorite part of reviewing things is. :)

Completely random questions:

- Which of the Doctors/companions/Masters is your favorite? :D

- If you could meet any celebrity/writer/artist (and, for the purposes of the question, NOT have to interview them), who would you choose? Living or dead.

- Mac or PC?

- Can you dance? (Other than having mastered the art of Ninja Style Dancing?)

*looks at everyone else's less-creepily-long posts* I... er... have too much time on my hands, apparently.

TailsCorra said...

I've noticed you've been dropping a few Doctor Who references in your recent videos. I've only recently become a fan of the series although admittlingly I'm only familior with the 2005 series. I suppose my question is would there be a difficult generational transition as one would experience going to Star Trek from TNG, or is there a recommended point from which to start? (Would be helpful considering there's 20 years of television to cover).

Also, what is your thoughts on the new series and perhaps Matt Smith as the newest Doctor?

Well I've got two questions, so take your pick! :D


First of all I was wondering if you ever read the Spiderman story's involving the character 'Ezekiel'. If you have I'd like to hear a quick few thoughts on it Haha.


And for my other question. If there is any manga you read at all what would you say is your favourite series or even most hated?

Linda said...

I'm sure this qualifies for most boring-slash-most nosey question, but I'll bite. How do you handle your workflow? Having a job then writing, filming, editing, and researching for new episodes has got to be difficult. Are you a to-do list apostle, or fly by the seat of your pants?

I ask because I used to be the former but as of late I've morphed into the latter. I'd love to get back into the swing of things.

Cory said...

I had two questions, until I saw several people ask about the new series of Doctor Who, so I only have one now:

1) What episode(s) of AT4W are you the most proud of?

Evilpaul said...

Hey Linkara,
I love AT4W. It needs more Venom though!

I remember reading the Venom: Lethal Protector comic in the '90s and liking it. They did a bunch of mini-series after that that I'm pretty sure were pretty hilariously awful. Venom was a love interest protecting sewer people (or something) in one of them. I remember glossy paper and kind of bad art, I think.

So I'd like to hear what your thoughts on the darker, grittier, "extreme," anti-hero Spider-Man spin-off are?

If a Woodchuck couldn't chuck wood, why would anyone ask how much wood could they chuck? The tongue twister goes "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" That "if" basically turns the entire premise on its head! I submit to you that if a woodchuck couldn't chuck wood...is because it's a beaver. Your thoughts?

So, when are you going to review a manga? You mentioned when you first started doing this on TGWTG that you'd eventually get around to doing one. No pressure, just wondering.

What do you think about the Scott Pilgrim series?

Do you like Spectacular Spider-man?

How old are you? (I tried to find this from wikipedia, TGWTG wikipedia, and TvTropes, and couldn't find it.)

Are you /sure/ you're not editing TvTropes?

You complain about comics that require you to read different sources to understand what's going on/get the full story, but you sort of do the same thing. At least, on TGWTG you do, since I'm not usually here. I only found your video with the Sage because of TvTropes. Can you list the videos you're in that aren't under Linkara on TGWTG?

Are Dr. Linksano's goggles from Spoony? I tried to find similar goggles and was told they don't make them anymore. Where did you get them?

Is it fun being an internet celebrity? What would you say to someone who likes to make videos and is just starting out? (Like me?)

So I was wondering how your family help out in your videos, whether its ideas for reviews, writing the script, a joke here and there. I also wondering. Is it fun working with them on the videos? Plus is anyone else in your family a comic book fan and if so, are there any times you get into fan arguments with them??

Mandi said...

I have two questions.

What is the funniest thing you've ever said in a video? One that made you laugh at yourself (and you still laugh about) because you thought it was so awesome/ridiculous/ingenious/ect.

And

What's your favorite candy?

Nex Vesica said...

I apologize if these questions have been asked already.

1. What are your top 5 favorite DC characters? Same question for marvel and any other comic group, and if you want to get really fancy do the opposite with your bottom 5.

2. Any thoughts on either the Buffy or Angel comics? Is there a possibility of them ever getting a review?

3. Ever consider doing reviews on the animated shows/movies based on comics?

4. Do you have a favorite/hated animated show based on a comic character?

5. If you could write an arc for a comic which one would you choose/what would the arc be? Additionally, have there been any arcs that you wanted to see expanded/focused on?

6. If you could redesign one of the existing superhero teams, which one and what characters would you take away/add?

7. What were your thoughts on the ultimate spider-man clone saga (if you read it)

Would you be willing to review other mediums based on comics, such as Batman: The Animated Series or JLU?

Scourgexlviisin said...

what is your opinion of the DCAU, and offshoot animated movies. I know you spoke on the wonder woman movie in your watchmen review, but as a whole how do you feel about them?

Also, If you were given the chance to change one part of One more day/Civil war/Final crisis/Countdown/any other major stories that you disliked, without just stopping it altogether, or creating a different ending, what would you change (i.e alternate way to achieve OMD's result without being so brain-numbingly stupid as a deal with the devil.)

Will you make any more videos about All-Star Batman? I'd really like to know what Crazy Steve is up to :)

You've made Mystery Science Theatre references, what is your favorite episode? Joel or Mike? Comedy Central or Sci-Fi Channel?

You claim to be a fan of the Silent Hill series, but you admitted you never touched a game.

Do you get a large amount of criticism for being a fan of the game despite you never really experiencing the content of the game besides internet and websites?

Also, what actually stops you from playing a game or two? Lack of time, experience, or too scary?

Aion of the Blades said...

I'm not sure if anyone asked this, but here's this.

I was wondering, how do you write your scripts for Lightbringer? I mean, is there a specific format you use and how much detail do you put into it?

ItsJustMarty said...

Okay(new to the whole blogging scene so please excues me).

While there are countless ways I could think of to compliment you and your show, let's just say "you done good" and get to the questions. ^_^

1. You stated in a video that you were a Pokemon fan(to some extent) and it was kind of made apparent by all the Pokemon music I've seen you use and the Pyramid Head in a Poke Ball. My question is, have you ever come across a, or more accurately one of the numerous, Pokemon comics or manga? Particularily Pokemon Special(Pokemon Adventures in USA)? And if so could you give us your thoughts on said comic/manga.

2. Have you heard of or in anyway developed an opinion on Bleedman?

3. Of all the superheroes we've seen you talk about, do you have a favorite? And while I'm on that subject do you like superhero comics over non-superhero/independant comics or is it the other way around or does it even matter?

And in closing, not really a question so much as a comment, I remember you said something along the lines of Atop the Fourth Wall fans needing a name(like whovians, brown coats) and you chose "fourthers" for the post.

I don't know if someone else already chose a name that you approved of but I for one am in favor of refering to AT4W fans as "Fancy Hats". Or something in relevance to your hat. ~_^

Will Ackerman said...

If you had every single one to choose from, Who would be your dream 5-Member Power Rangers team?

R said...

1. What's your favorite Power Rangers series post "Countdown to Destruction"? My favorite is Time Force.

2. Do you collect toys at all? Besides the cool weapon replicas, I mean.

Ruesch said...

1. We know you hate Miller's DK series, but what do you think of his Batman Year One book?

2. Have you ever heard of or read the Lego Bionicle comics? If so, what did you think of them?

3. Which AT4W episode, if any, would you wish to redo?

4. And finally, who/what was your main inspiration for your reviews?

Kimarous said...

I've already asked you my question over e-mail, but maybe you want to address it in this video for general reference?

Anonymous said...

Hey, Ive been reading Booster Gold from the beginning, and I know its been one of your favorites. My question is if you think I should make the switch now that Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis are writing. I like Giffen, but but I absolutely despised their Team-Up for the Metal Men backup in Doom Patrol, so I'm tentative.

I was also wondering if you think its a good idea to get the Time Masters miniseries if we're not planning on reading Return of Bruce Wayne. I really like Rip Hunter and I don't think he got nearly enough play in Booster.

Thank You!

I asked you 2 questions in an email, so dont feel redundant if you did answer them. My emails arn't working and I don't get replies sometimes.

#1. Have you ever played the DC Hero's rp board game? Or would you ever be willing to play it and review it? I'd be willing to help

#2. Was there a Power Ranger season that involved the Ranger Powers coming from monsters in a haunted house? I can't find information on it, but I remember watching it on tv and I swear it was Power Rangers. Bulk and Scull were there fighting zombies!

Shield said...

I've noticed hints of Libertarian leanings, right or wrong?

A big complain against heroes in comics is their no-kill policy against mass murdering villains (compared to manga like Fist of the North Star), and that the governments of their world can't seem to create a reasonable justice system.

How do you balance comic book logic and the need for recurring characters (lazy writing?) with writers throwing countless nameless civilians under the bus just to establish that a villain is "evil"?

SenorPwnage said...

I decided to ask three sets of four questions. Hopefully at least one of them gets featured!

Anyway, I've heard plenty about you and your show through past reviews, so I'd like to know a little more about the technical side of things:

1. How do you write? Has your method of reviewing changed much through your run? If you ever did another written review, what would that be like?

2. Have you been influenced much by other critics? How has your over-all style evolved?

3. Has your recording/editing set-up changed much since when you started? If you could improve one thing, what would it be?

4. What sort of benefits do you get from working with a team like Channel Awesome, other than crossovers? Are there things you would have been unable to do without their support?

As for the personal questions:

1. Do you have any awesome comic-related stories about stuff that's happened to you? Hell, non-comic-related stories would be interesting too!

2. What are your politics? I'm sure this wouldn't be total flamebait or anything.

3. TELL US SOMETHING EMBARASSING! Do you wet the bed at night? Do you have some creepy fetish that we don't know about? Did you enjoy the Star Wars prequels?

4. If you could spend a day with one person in the comic-book industry, who would it be? Also, no picking someone just because of the quality (bad or good) of their book. Pick someone you would honestly like to meet.

And now for something completely different:

1. The "Fourth Wall" is actually nonexistent, so to be "Atop" it you would have to be able to fly. Are you a superhero?

2. What's with Evildead 2? Sequel, remake, or something else entirely?

3. If you could be the Batmobile, which model would you be? If the Batmobile doesn't appeal to you, explain which superhero vehicle you would pick, and why!

4. Have you ever tried to rip a price
tag off a comic book, torn the cover, and ended up trying to fix the price tag back on so that it at least looks like you didn't screw it up?

Pokeprof said...

3 questions for you Linkara:

First, I believe you said in your intro video when you started way back when that you haven't reviewed a Manga yet because you didn't find any suitably bad enough for the show. Does this still hold true or was that a joke originally?

Second, As we've seen there are some comics that you've said have either gotten better or worse over the course of their life time. Has there been any comics from a series that was fantastic (Such as 52) that ended up being horrific, perhaps enough so to be featured on your show?

And finally, what would you suggest to those of us who might wish to do the same as you, the Nostalgia Critic, and the Angry Video Game Nerd and start their own review shows? Is humor always needed for that, or could it be played a bit more straight?

Thanks for your time and I look forward to see your answers!

I know you've said before that you're a fan of the Teen Titans and I've been reading through some of earlier stuff myself, recently. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the late '60s/early '70s era Titans (the team with Lilith and Mal) and what they did to Wonder Girl in particular being someone who's more familiar with Titans history.

Oh right, that probably has to be in the form of a question, huh? Well, as a self-described feminist and a fan of the Teen Titans, what do you think of that era of the Teen Titans' history? And specifically how the emotional, silly, motherly, "feminine" Lilith was pushed to the forefront while the powerhouse amazon warrior that didn't take guff from anyone was sidelined to the point that no one seemed to even remember she had powers and on the occasions when she did manage to get a conversation in she always ended it in tears?

Is that your normal outfit that you wear to review things, or did you choose it specifically for the AT4W series? And if that's the case, did you choose that outfit?


Also, why is it that you and Spoony seem to have such a volume of crossovers? Or is it just that you live near one another or somesuch?

Cory said...

Dear Linkara,

In a previous question asked of you via email, you said that you had no intent on doing a review of a television series based on a comic. However, recently you have been doing reviews of movies based on super hero comics. My question is if you have reconsidered doing so as a sort of special, outlining the good and the bad transitions or adaptations of comics to television series, or television series to comics?

Another question, how large is your collective library of comics and what decades does your library cover? So far we have seen a lot from the 90's, but just how far back does your library go?

~ Cory "Core" Belote

Thelder said...

Hey Linkara,

I renember seeing on one of your earliest AT4W episodes that you would rant any comic, traditional and manga alike, but until now you didn't said your traditional catchfrase "this comic sucks!" on any manga... and, for what I see on the opening of your show it doesn't like that you read manga anyway. But, if you ever read one, what was your favorites? And wich ones could, someday, be on the AT4W?

And since you spoke about Elseworlds on JLA, what you think about this "What if?" comics? I like some of them, it's interesting to see some of the characters out of their tradicional settings. Wich ones are your favorites, for Marvel's "What if...?" and DC's "Elseworlds" like?

And, just for a bit of curiosity, recently I got Scott Pilgrim comics to read. I really apreciated, and I'm on all the hype about the movie. Have you already read it? If so, what you think about?

And since I asked that, another movie that maybe you could comment is Kick Ass. Since it's based on Mark Millar's comic... actually, I not that Mark Millar fan, but I'm curious about your impressions.

Thanks, and see you soon.

DesertEagle said...

1) Will you be making Vlogs on future Marvel, DC, or Star Trek movies like Spoony and Brad Jones?

2) After A History of the Power Rangers; what future shows can we expect from you?

3) Will you make a second appearance on Transmission Awesome?

4) Many of your reviews are on the first issue of a long running series. Will you ever take a second look at the rise or decline in quality from then and now?

5) Are there any plans to create a website exclusively for Lightbringer sometime in the future?

Anonymous said...

Alright, great! I apoligize in advance if anything I ask has already been answered, or has been asked to death:

1) After History of Power Rangers is all said and done, do you plan on doing a similar style project with a diffrent series?

2) How old are you? (Yeah, basic, I know, but that's been driving me insane ever since you brought it up in one of your reviews.)

3) What causes that shadow on the left side of the screen in your reviews?

4) Is there a comic out there that you will flat out refuse to review? (One More Day aside.)

5) How many people watch your show? (Seriously, is there a veiw count, or are you going by the comments?)

6)Do you have a job outside of doing these reviews?

7) What is your favorite episode that you have ever done? Least favorite?

8) How did you catch the obscure bible mistakes in "Uncanny X-Men"? Did you look it up on Wikipedia, or do you just know all this stuff being a Christian?

9) Are you planning on releasing any more commentaries?

10) Have you ever been in any sort of legal trouble with these reviews?

11) Seriously, dude, where did you get the awesome hat?

12) When you originally invisioned AT4W, did you ever imagine it would be something of this magnitude? Did you ever think that what started as a few text reviews would spiral into a video series that included a robot version of yourself, two mad scientists trying to kill you, and a 90's kid?

13) If there is one thing that you'd like to make perfectly clear to your fans, what would it be?

14) What age were you when you started watching Power Rangers?

15) Do you write the episodes by yourself, or do you have help? If so, who?

16) You've gotten a ton of mean-spirited comments over this show's run. You seem to ignore it most of the time, but has there ever been one comment that actually hurt you?

17) Has there ever been a point where you consitered canceling AT4W?

18) Has anybody ever reconized you off the street?

19) In one of your reviews (I can't remember which) you called yourself by your actual name, Lewis Lovhaug. I've never heard you call yourself that in your show, it's always been Linkara. That begs the question: Is Linkara a character or just your screen name?

20) How many takes did you have to do of the "I AM NOT A NAZI!" Thing from the first part of Kickassia?

21) I need an answer once and for all: are we or are we not getting issue three of Revelution of the Mask?



Whew. Here's wishing you luck answering everyone's questions, Lewis/Linkara. You're going to need it.

You've probably answered these in some fashion, but I'll ask anyway:

Who is your favorite author?

Also, would you ever consider doing a HoPR style side-review on the evolution of classic comic characters?

I really enjoy HoPR, almost more than just looking at bad comics. Not meaning any offense, I definitely enjoy the latter. However, I find you to be wonderfully enjoyable when doing analysis.

I would love to see something like HoPR for Batman, Superman, and so on.

It might not be as feasible, though.

Finally:

Frank R. said...

The question you are unlikely to answer (there are lighter ones after this one): You stray the line between making overtly political statements and keeping your own political beliefs somewhat hidden. By some of your comments I think you're more on the right then the left...but regardless I applaud you as an entertainment personality not taking a definitive stand one way or another. My question then is do you do this on purpose or is it a habit you've fallen into? If you do this on purpose (which I'm pretty sure you do) do you think other entertainment personalities should do the same?

On to lighter questions you might be more likely to possibly answer...

What's your writing process? Do you toss ideas back and forth with anyone or do you come up with most of the stuff on your own?

How much ahead do you plan the 'plot' threads you have in your videos? Do you constantly have a plot going like you did with Terminator Linkara plotted out well in advance or is it more spur of the moment?

Does your character actually know that Spoony is Dr. Insano? Is he only pretending that he doesn't realize the obvious? If he does know is it because he harbors a secret attraction for him and hiding this knowledge and the knowledge that he is his long lost fraternal twin brother in an attempt to engage him in a gay incestuous relationship? I hold it pretty likely that he does know and is waiting for the relationship. /nod

Still no review of a comic from Antarctic Press (the only comic publisher I like and I think they could use some exposure)? There are some really bad ones mixed in with the gems.

What exactly is your families ancestral history? Your name is pretty interesting.

Do your parents encourage you in your reviewing endeavors? You seem to rely on them for a lot in the reviews and I'm slightly surprised they are so supportive.

Did a rabid zombie ever kill a member of your family? Awareness must be raised in regards to this epidemic.
