  1. Speaking of comics, Locke & Key finished this year too, but the trade paperback isn’t out yet. I have a lucky friend that got a review copy on Netgalley.

    I thought Joss Whedon’s run on Astonishing X-men was very good.

  2. Veronica Mars is so much fun, glad you are catching it Gail.

    As I suspected before listening to this I wouldn’t necessarily be in agreement about the assessment of films, but I’m the anti-Derek when it comes to how I view, and enjoy, films.

    I wish the newest Star Trek movie would have went off on its own with an original story, but given that I like how the actors inhabited the characters in the first film it was fun to spend time with them again in the second.

    I liked hearing what you had to say, Patrick, about Marvel’s business model as I feel those films, etc. in some part have to be judged by that standard. Sure, we wish they would write films up to a more sophisticated level, but the sophisticated adult viewer isn’t the target audience. I feel that was some of the failure of Into Darkness. It felt like they used a story line that would bring in the older fans who are going to see a Star Trek film no matter what and would feel a nostalgia factor for Wrath of Khan and would also bring in the younger fans that the film is really targeted for. Unfortunately they should have chosen to do one thing or the other as the result was admittedly tepid, and I say that despite really having fun with the film.

    Happy New Year to the SF Signal Podcast gang. It was a pleasure to have you take my podcasting virginity a few weeks back. Look forward to more interesting discussion in 2014.
