Some of My Friends Read Comics 129 – Criminal: Bad Weekend + Marvel vs DC #2

There aren’t main writer/artist pairs in comics who work together as consistently as Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips, and yet we’ve never covered their work!

We finally rectify that by reading a spin-off of their long standing Criminal series called Bad Weekend, in which we learn about all kinds of shady practices behind the scenes of the comic book industry.

And then we keep diving deeper into Marvel vs DC with issue #2.

It’s the exciting conclusion to the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time manga with Volume 2! Will Link ever be a little kid again? Will this mysterious Sheik be friend or foe? And how much does this thing line up with the video game?

After that, we begin our long read of Marvel vs DC, featuring the most famous comic book character of all time: Lobo!

Some of My Friends Read… Manga?!?!? And Play Video Games?!?!?!

After 5 years, we finally delve into some content from Japan: The Ocarina of Time manga adaptation from the Legend of Zelda series. Did we get confused reading right to left? Were we able to switch back for the Marvels Epilogue? (Yes, it was fine.)

Some of My Friends Read Comics 126 – The New Mutants: The Demon Bear Saga + Marvels: Eye of the Camera #6

Marvel’s had plenty of titles dedicated to the “next generation” of X-Men, but New Mutants was the first.

We jumped into the Demon Bear Saga and read issues 18-21 written by Chris Claremont in his prime and with the wIcKeD art of Bill Sienkiewicz.

Then we finished up Marvels: Eye of the Camera with the unexpectedly moving issue 6.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 125 – The Kentucky Fried Chicken Trilogy + Marvels: Eye of the Camera #5

Remember that time Colonel Sanders defeated the evil Colonel Sunder from Earth-3 by taking down his knock-off fried chicken franchise with the help of Green Lantern and Flash?

Well you’re remembering it wrong, Colonel Sanders doesn’t need nobody’s help.

We read a 3-pack of KFC/DC crossover comics from 2015-2017 and then we experienced an actually intriguing story beat in Marvels: Eye of the Camera #5.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 124 – Sandman, Vol. 4: Season of Mists + Marvels: Eye of the Camera #4

somfrc124

It’s high time we read some Sandman for this show. No, not the the literal sand guy from Spider-Man. It’s the Neil Gaiman series that made Vertigo Comics famous.

We jumped straight into Volume 4: Season of Mists, which seems to be less about seasons and more about land ownership rights.

Then we keep reading Marvels: Eye of the Camera and we regret every second of it.

That Was a Game – Season 2, Episode 4: Dragon’s Lair 3D: Return to the Lair

The 1980’s arcade classic Dragon’s Lair was updated for Gamecube and the original Xbox in 2002 as a cel-shaded 3D platformer.

Released before The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Dragon’s Lair 3D: Return to the Lair has janky controls and incredibly cheap deaths, but an incredibly cool art style that evokes the original game.
