Next Time: Squadron Supreme: Death of a Universe
This ain’t your daddy’s Mario Kart! Check out that time the Mortal Kombat characters left the arena and hopped into go-karts. It’s MK meets MK in Motor Kombat!
As part of our ongoing quest to return to some of the series we’ve previously covered, we’re revisiting Locke & Key with Volume 2: Head Games which has everybody opening up their dang heads. Gnarly stuff.
Then, we move on to Amazing Spider-Man #3, our first full-length Spidey story! Peter Parker is still kind of lame and he gives up almost immediately after meeting Doc Ock. What a nerd.
Next Time: We celebrate our six year anniversary with the Big Hero 6 (2008).
If one Kirby is good, then ten Kirbys are great! Kirby Mass Attack is a touchscreen-only DS game where you lead a party of ten Kirbys to swarm enemies and destroy obstacles.
If it sounds like a Pikmin platfomer, you’re not wrong!
Also Kirby Mass Attack has cool minigames like a spaceshooter, RPG, and a pinball game as big as Kirby’s Pinball Land.
When you think about it, Batman and the Ninja Turtles have a lot in common. They’re orphans, they’re well-trained in martial arts, they thrive in darkness. I think they’re all aliens too but I could be wrong about that.
We read their DC/IDW co-published 6-issue crossover from 2016.
Then, Peter Parker starts making that money in Amazing Spider-Man #2
Next Time: Locke & Key, Vol. 2 – Head Games
We’re starting a couple of classics today from very different eras! First up it’s Ed Brubaker’s Winter Soldier run on Captain America, which provided the basis for the second Captain America film. We’re planning to read the whole thing eventually, but for today we’re just doing the first volume.
Then we’re starting our long-read of the first year of Amazing Spider-Man. That’s right, all the way from the beginning. If it’s any good, maybe we’ll read the next 60 years worth as well.
Next Time: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1-6
Wario’s back to his villainous ways as he travels to Bomberland and attempts to turn Bomberman & his friends into his evil minions. In reality, it’s just a Bomberman game that was reskinned to have Wario!
How many of the Captain Marvels have we talked about? We’ve talked about Mar-Vell and Carol Danvers, but Monica Rambeau hasn’t really come up that often, at least not as Captain Marvel.
With her being featured recently in WandaVision, we thought we’d take a look at her first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16 and then the Captain Marvel one-shot from 1989.
And then it’s finally time for Squadron Supreme #12! Final issue! Big fight! Lots of deaths!
Next Time: Captain America: The Winter Solider (Captain America 2004 #1-7)
THAT WAS A GAME returns to explore that time Princess Peach got her own spinoff game where she defeated enemies by crying into their mouths!
Wedding bells are in the air!
We’re going back to the mid-90’s when Lois and Clark got married in the comics as well as on TV! We read Superman: The Wedding Album, a one-shot from 1996 which tells the whole story in a pretty self-contained issue.
We also get to some more questionable moral choices in Squadron Supreme #11 as we get really close to the end!
Next Time: Monica Rambeau’s origins in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16 and Captain Marvel (1989) #1
