    The novelization sounds interesting, but what I’m really waiting for Micheal Bay’s Settlers of Catan movie.

    The trailer is still kind of minimal. Just a date and a portentous voice saying “On July Fourth two-thousand twelve, you will have wood for sheep.”

    I would have hoped they’d split the Pogo books into daily and Sunday collections as the Sunday comics were wholly unrelated to the daily serial episodes. 

    I’ll keep all my first editions, they’re my retirement portfolio. 

  3. Just wanted to say I love this podcast–cant get enough. It is quickly becoming my favorite.
    I have downloaded all of the old issues; It will suck when I finally get caught up and will have to wait for the next one.
    Keep up the good work.  
    On the downside I am wasting more time than ever reading, playing and listening to a lot of great new media I may have never known about. thanks….

      Thanks, Richard! I really appreciate it. If you would be so kind to review it on iTunes I’d be grateful.

    I don’t know what editions of the Pogo books I grew up with, but my brother and I read and re-read them until they barely hold together anymore. I’ve been thinking about looking around for replacement copies.
