Some of My Friends Read Comics 147 – Monica Rambeau Origins + Squadron Supreme #12

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!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 146 – Superman: The Wedding Album + Squadron Supreme # 11

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!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 145 – Avengers West Coast (aka What Happened to Scarlet Witch & Vision’s Kids) + Squadron Supreme #10

Babyhands. This dude has babies for hands. I know this was supposed to be about Wanda and Vision and their weird magic babies or whatever, but as soon as this guy came on the scene he stole the whole damn show like he stole those babies. BABYHANDS. 

This was from West Coast Avengers 50-52 and 56-57, which was a strange selection of issues.

Over in Squadron Supreme #10, we get some spies on the team!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 144 – Amazing Spider-Man: The Death of Gwen Stacy + Squadron Supreme #9

Somehow, we’d never read The Death of Gwen Stacy for the show, so we rectified that by reading Amazing Spider-Man #121 & 122.

We also read “What If Spider-Man Had Rescued Gwen Stacy?” from What If #24. Special thanks to Uatu who hooked us up with this story, it’s good to know that Peter Parker makes dumb decisions no matter what happens.

We also continued with Squadron Supreme #9 in which a member of the team dies!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 143 – Batman: Slayride & Christmas with the Joker + Squadron Supreme #8

It’s still December, we’ve been told, which means we’re legally obligated to continue covering Christmas comics. But we broke the rules and did a cartoon too! Take that!

We went with Paul Dini’s “Slayride” in Detective Comics #826 as well as the “Christmas with the Joker” episode of Batman: The Animated Series. 

And then we continued Squadron Supreme with issue #8, in which we get an actual honest to goodness superhero fight.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 142 – DC Christmas With the Superheroes 1988 + Squadron Supreme #7

Anytime the holidays roll around, you know we’re gonna get Santa plastered all over a ton of comics. DC’s Christmas With the Superheroes 1988 collects 6 different stories from throughout the years and we tried to guess how many would contain the real Santa. Or as real as a comic book Santa can get.  

And then we got another shocking twist in Squadron Supreme #7.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 141 – Dog Man: A Tale of Two Kitties + Squadron Supreme #6

We forgive you if you haven’t heard of Dog Man, he’s not exactly a super hero. He’s half cop / half dog, stitched together after a terrible accident, but not in like a gross way.

It’s cute, we promise. It’s a spinoff of that kids book, Captain Underpants and it’s published by Scholastic.

We jumped right into Dog Man Volume 3: A Tale of Two Kitties and then went on to Squadron Supreme #6, where we get some bigtime shakeups in the team roster.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 140 – Harrow County + Squadron Supreme #5

Spooky month continues with a highly praised modern horror comic called Harrow County. It’s a witch book by Cullen Bunn with watercolor finished art by Tyler Crook, so we just had to try it!

The first volume, Countless Haints, was only 4 issues and the haints were honestly pretty countable.

Then we moved on to Squadron Supreme #5 where the entire team gets mind controlled AGAIN.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 139 – Tales from the Crypt + Squadron Supreme #4

We wanted to read some classic horror to celebrate the spookyseason so we dug up some of the original Tales From The Crypt comics from 1950.

Actually, we read the first issues (#17-19) called Crypt Of Terror before they changed the name. It was some weird crime stuff before that, I know it’s confusing, just listen to the episode and everything will be okay.

Until we continue our read of Squadron Supreme with #4 in which everything is definitely NOT okay.
