yes

It was very uncomfortable. Especially since every time one of the other guys on the show would start to agree with him on a point he'd twist it and somewhat disagree with their agreement.

It really was.

I will say this about Miguel. While he might be overzealous his heart is in the right place. If you see the documentary he actually gives a kid a Fantastic Four book.

Batman25JM - Giving comics as a gift doesn't force anyone to read it. You can throw it off to the side like you would have done had someone giving you a bat or a glove. What different is that it take you 5-10 minutes to read a comic book. The time invested in it isn't much. I've given out comics as gifts and a few new fans grew from that. That being said lend people your comics is just as effective.

Oh, I totally get that just because you give a comic as a gift it doesn't mean that the person has to read it. I just see it as a dick move if the person has no interest in comics. I have always been of the thought that you should give a gift that somebody will enjoy. I give my brother clothes even though they bore the hell out of me, because that's what he loves. Trying to force someone to read comics isn't going to work, and if they don't want to read it you kind of come off as the jerk who gave them a present you wanted them to want, but they couldn't care less about.

My best friend doesn't read comics (in fact, none of my "real life" friends do, and that's why PoP! is such a blessing). I have thought many times of giving my friend comics for gifts, but he's show zero interest in comics, and I've tried to get him excited about them. I once gave him and another friend of ours an hour and a half lecture about the history of Robin (kind of against their will as it was during a road trip and I was driving Very Happy). Anyway, he always gives me gifts that he knows I'll love so I like to return the courtesy.

I remember that. It was when I first started listening to shows live and getting into comics. I was thinking, "Is that what these people are like??? Shocked " Thankfully, comic book readers (PoP! people, at least) aren't like that.

It was a hard episode to get through. I probably wouldn't have listened to the whole thing, but I have a mission to listen to every episode from beginning to end. At least it had the bright spot of Kerouac talking about someone at work complaining about his comments on Facebook and his cousin de-friending him.

^ Ha! I remember that. I threatened to defriend him for using the term "hot rimmer" later that day.

Miguel was like the 2nd or 3rd PoPcast I'd listened to.

I agree, totally John Michael.

I THINK I mentioned this on the episode, but if not, I'm throwing it out there now: I DID try giving a comic as a gift, successfully. I think the key is the conversation you mentioned, though. You need to talk to your audience and stimulate a bit of curiosity. THEN, figure out a comic that will appeal to their sensibilities. I gave Loyd - he of bank story fame - Superman: Red Son, as he lived through the rise and fall of the Soviet Union and I knew the political commentary would strike a chord with him. I also knew he was familiar with Superman, and thought of comics as "kid stuff." By handing him a book that deals with Superman as a tool of the Soviet super state because his convictions are so shaped by his upbringing, I gave Loyd the impetus to COMPLETELY change his perception of comics. It succeeded. It's still not his preferred medium, but he had an open mind and an interest that was piqued by our prior discussion and the relevance of the material at hand. If I'd given him the first arc of X-Force volume 3, he likely wouldn't have gotten past the first three pages. Although, if I gave him that book now, after setting up some of the necessary back story, I bet he'd give it a shot. He'd still hate it, but he'd let his curiosity get the better of him.

With your friends who don't like comics - think about what they DO like. See if you can find a comic that appeals to that, and then maybe consider that as a gift.

Yeah, I really should try to find a specific comic that would appeal to my friends. The trick would be getting them to read it. Even if the story would appeal to them (which many of the comics I tell them about do) they just never seem to want to read comics, no matter how cool they think the story sounds. It's funny, my best friend loves super hero movies, and even some of the cartoons, but he just won't read comics.

I have a lot of friends who love manga, but they too can't be persuaded to try comics. I'll just have to be vigilant and search out the perfect comic for each of them.

Was curious to know what everybody was talking about. Laughing

Very loud.
Very annoying.

His breathing into the microphone was driving me insane.

I am pretty sure last nights show was awesome. I dont think I laughed so hard listening. Can't wait to see peoples reactions to it when they listen to the download. Also I apologize if I may have insulted anyone in the chat last night, I wasn't exactly sober.
