If it's crap ... We'll tell you
If you saw my last post pretend like you didn't.
This week The League of Extremely Ordinary Gentlemen gets back to its roots, COMIC BOOKS (anybody remember back when that's what the show was about?) And to help us out we'll have Marvel's newest hot shot artist, DAVID MARQUEZ.
And coming soon on "ULTIMATE SPIDERMAN".
There's no more time to waste. Get your questions in now!

What Comics from the New 52, Old DC and Marvel would you retool? Whether it be the art the writing or both and why
I'm not a fan of Liefeld or Nicieza, but I respect that they co-created many of the badass comic characters around today. Just like Stan Lee and Bob Kane created awesome characters, it was contributions by Jack Kirby and Bill Finger that took them to the next level. The latter two don't usually get recognition for this.
Are there other notable books or characters that despite their popularity, their creators don't really get their due?
From previous episodes, we've learned that you guys read big books like "Walking Dead" and several of the New 52 titles. I'm curious to know what else the LEOG gets into. Do you venture into less prominent, more genre-intensive stuff?
What are you guys reading that not everyone else is? Maybe something out of the ordinary you'd recommend?
I remember Amaglam Comics and the DC vs. Marvel series that led up to it. I also remember being bummed that the matchups in that series were pretty bullshit. As comic fans (sadly) we're used to disappointment and dejection when reality doesn't measure up to our anticipation.
What has been your greatest disappointment as a comics fan? Maybe an event that didn't meet expectations or needlessly killing of a character -- when did the industry we love let you down?
Dear LEOG, i think cycurs is the only one reading them but what do you think of the new buffy and angel books that have been out of a while now?
how do you feel about Max Landis' "Death and Return of Superman" video and do you agree with it's point of not only being a poorly written story, but for killing death in comics? Also, what is your most hated "big event" comic from DC?
Dear LEOG & possible kidnap victim...i mean special guest,
I am one who preferes regular literary books to comics...I prefer to visualize it but do still enjoy comics. I was wondering have you read a comicbook that had bad illistration, but a great story that you would have prefered to have it as a normal book instead.
thanks again for always having such excellent shows every week...minus the puns and as always LONG LIVE THE LEAGUE & Cyrus's cat.
2 parter here,
Would you mind terribly, telling us of a time where you went into a store and the sales clerk hyped up a different comic book and managed to sell you it. Only to have you read through it later thinking, "You son-a-ma-bitch".
Also what superhero has the most believable origin story and how would you fix origin stories of heroes you hate?
