See you all then.

So, as some of you may recall, I put up a poll not that long ago asking the readers what I should cover/discuss next for Gabbing Geek since the “Road to Secret Wars” is just about over.  Initially, the poll came out with three votes for Jeff Smith’s Bone, and I announced that I would cover that next during my Monday posting for the podcast reaction.

Then something happened.
