  1. Awesome episode for the Fourth of July holiday, Chris and Cindy!

    I've never read the Sentinel of Liberty miniseries so it was nice to hear this preview/review of the first two issues. Sounds like a really enjoyable read and I might have to track it down sometime.

    I think Fabian's last name is pronounced Nee-SEE-ay-zah because that's the way I heard it on a roundtable interview with X-Men writers included with a VHS copy of "Night of the Sentinels" sold at Pizza Hut circa 1996.

    Great job as always, Super Mates! Now I feel like watching a Cap movie...

    1. I have some of those Pizza Hut videos too. Unfortunately, my VCR bit the dust a while back, and I've yet to replace it. You're probably right about the pronunciation. I apologize to Mr. Nicieza for the butchering of his name in this AND the next episode!

      Go watch a Cap movie! We all should today! Then check your cheap bins for this series! It's worth it!
