  1. Claude says:

    Any time someone spouts lame tired crap about how Superman sucks because he’s too powerful or too good or not dark enough I wish they could listen to Grant Morrison explain why they’re dead wrong. If they still feel that way after then they’re assholes.

  2. Andrew says:

    Holy crap, Kyle needs to become the 4th official Nerdist host. His little jokes here and there are brilliantly timed and actually hilarious! I know he’s piped up before here and there but this was the first time (that I’ve heard at least, aside from the 2014 Comic-Con shows) he’s been this prominent. If Jonah and Matt aren’t available and it’s just Chris, let Kyle actually take the sidekick role full-time!

    just as Leonard answered I am taken by surprise that a single mom can make $7907 in a few weeks on the internet . check my source———–

  4. Wow after I mentioned on the Chris D’Elia podcast page that I wish there’d be more guests that weren’t comedians/actors you guys came through right away —- thanks!

  5. GuanoLad says:

    He sounds a lot more Scottish than he looks.

  6. Mario Flores says:

    FINAL CRISIS sucked balls

  7. Greggers says:

    ALL-STAR SUPERMAN is everything it’s cracked up to be.

  8. CSEM says:

    There is something so lovely when yet another individual shares stories of their youth being spent reading comic books whilst others thought them weird and now how that person is so enormously thankfully they stayed with what they loved… 
    Thank you Chris for sharing Mr. Morrison.

  9. John says:

    Met Grant back up here in Scotland at a Dundee convention. Very charming and friendly guy, could listen to him for hours. Never a dull point to make, if Chris though tries to compare his life to Grant’s I’m going to be pissed. We don’t need to know everything bout you Chris. Quit it, unless you can genuinely justify the comparison on the cast. 

    • Pedantobot says:

      He’s not doing it to provide the audience with information about himself, he’s doing it to relate to the guest on a human level and generate a more interesting conversation.  If you were a guest on a podcast with a microphone in your face would you be more comfortable opening up and sharing things about yourself to a stone-faced interrogator or to someone who also shares their own life experiences in an attempt to relate to you and what you’re talking about?  Maybe think or at least ask before you start finger-wagging in the second person.
