Some of My Friends Read Comics 105 – Uncanny X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga, Pt. 1 + All-Star Superman #2

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?!?!?!

Next Time: We finish the Dark Phoenix Saga with Uncanny X-Men #133-137 (with an option for #138)!

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.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 103 – Avengers Forever Pt. 2 + Secret Wars Epilogue

somfrc103

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.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 102 – Avengers Forever Pt. 1 + Secret Wars 12

somfrc102

Have you ever heard of the Avengers? Well they’re FOREVER. They fought dinosaurs in the wild west and they tried to stop Skrull Nixon in the ‘50s.

Kurt Busiek chronicles their foreverventures in Avengers: Forever, a 12-issue limited series from the late ’90s.

As far as I can tell, it’s about 2 Hank Pyms stopping 3 Kangs, or something like that. We read the first 6 issues of Forever + the finale of Secret Wars with issue 12! We’ll miss that floating suburb of Denver!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 101 – Detective Comics 1000 & 27 + Secret Wars 11

somfrc101

Detective Comics just released their milestone 1000th issue, so of course we had to read it! But of course we had to take a look back in time and visit the first appears of Batman aka “The Bat-Man” in Detective Comics #27 as well.

Did Detective Comics #1000 do better or worse than Action Comics #1000?

Then we approach the end of Secret Wars with issue #11.

It’s our 100th episode!

And as we do with every anniversary, we celebrate with Batman! This time it’s Batman: Year 100 by Paul Pope, a story that takes place in 2039…aka Batman’s 100th year.

Then we continue our read of Secret Wars with issue 10. Galactus may be defeated, but Doom’s about to Doom.

We also marked this momentous occasion the only way three nerds know how: by talking about more nerdy things. Here’s to 100 more!

Next Time: Batman reaches his own anniversary with Detective Comics 1000 (out on store shelves today!) and we read the first appearance of Batman in Detective Comics 27 (May 1939)

Some of My Friends Read Comics 099 – Kree-Skrull War Part 2 + Secret Wars 9

somfrc099

We continue our last episode by finishing off the Kree Skrull War from Avengers 94-97.

We’re not entirely sure when the war started, but we do know that a fake senator (alien in disguise!) is trying to take down the Avengers by making the public scared of aliens. Bad move, dude.

And then the Inhumans show up?

We’re also nearing the end of Secret Wars with issue 9.
