Some of My Friends Read Comics 109 – Wolverine: Weapon X by Barry Windsor-Smith + All-Star Superman #6

somfrc109

It may seem hard to believe, but there used to be a time when we knew little to nothing about Wolverine’s origins. The Weapon X story from 1991 by Barry Windsor-Smith began to fill in some gaps.

Originally told in small chunks appearing in Marvel Comics Presents #72-84, it’s become one of the classic Wolverine stories in his history.

Plus, we continue All-Star Superman with issue 6.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 108 – Animal Man: The Hunt + All-Star Superman #5

somfrc108

Animal Man has never exactly been one of DC’s biggest heroes, but he got a reboot in 2011 for the New 52 written by Jeff Lemire with some gruesome, horrific art by Travel Foreman.

We read the first volume which saw him re-discover his origin, find out that his daughter can turn human arms into chicken arms, and start making his way toward the Swamp Thing.

And then in All Star Superman #5, Clark Kent interview Lex Luthor in prison!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 107 – The Flintstones (2016) + All-Star Superman #4

somfrc107

If the modern stone age family wasn’t modern enough for you, then we’ve got good news: it’s a reboot, baby! Mark Russell and Steve Pugh re-imagined The Flintstones in this 2016 series filled with cave puns, science “facts,” and hot takes on society.

We also finally learn the origin of Yabba Dabba Doo, a secret that hardcore Flintstones fans have been dying to learn, probably.

Plus All Star Superman #4!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 106 – Uncanny X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga, Pt. 2 + All-Star Superman #3

Jean Grey’s lost it.

Mastermind’s been making her think she’s in the past, she’s been smooching dudes she shouldn’t be smooching, and now the Phoenix Force has moved in and I don’t think she can handle it.

All this while the X-Men fight fancy folks and aliens in the conclusion of the Dark Phoenix Saga from Uncanny X-Men #133-137.

And in All Star Superman #3, we meet some jerks!

somfrc105

The first appearances of Kitty Pryde, Dazzler, AND Emma Frost? The Dark Phoenix Saga is a story so big, we wouldn’t dream of trying to contain it in one episode.

We read the first half in Uncanny X-Men #129-132 and watched as Scott Summers couldn’t handle Jean’s smoochin’ ways.

And in All-Star Superman #2, what’s hidden in Superman’s secret room?!?!?!

It’s time for Endgame! No, not Avengers… it’s Batman: Endgame from 2015, the culmination of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run on Batman.

We also start our next long-read tile: All Star Superman by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely! What a time to be alive.

It’s the 2nd part of our Avengers: Forever read! This time it’s less about time travel and more about pulling in Avengers from every timeline. See also: The Kree Supreme Intelligence, Rick Jones, and Kang all pile into a car and drive/fly through space together.

We also unpack Secret Wars a bit more by reading Uncanny X-Men 138. An epilogue issue where Colossus, Wolverine and Nightcrawler talk about their feelings at a bar.
