    2MC, if you have not, you need to read John Ringo's "Live Free or Die". First alien contact SF, with a military SF/humorous bent. His protagonist, Tyler Vernon, is modeled on Howard Tayler, who writes Schlock Mercenary - which Ringo is a fan of. Fun book, old situations handled in a very fresh way, and funny as hell in places.

    I figured at this point they'd run to 200 and call it quits there. Kirkman usually has no problem stretching a story way longer than it needs to go.

    From the last "Letters..." at the end of the last issue (words written by Kirkman)

    Something happened between when they printed the last issue and rushing to end it. It'll be interesting to hear what happened. I'm assuming sales have slumped.

    I was wondering the same thing.

    Here's something that definitely belongs on the Geek thread.

    Did that dude really pronounce Jedi as "jeddy" and Vader as "va-dyr?" How can you get those wrong?
