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.

Some of My Friends 138 – Black Panther: DoomWar + Squadron Supreme #3

What’s that Doctor Doom scamp trying to steal this time? Oh, it’s all the vibranium in Wakanda. Yikes. We read DoomWar from 2010 in which he succeeds?!?!?! Oh no.

And wait until you see which Deadpool character named Deadpool shows up to help the Black Panther out, it’s a real shocker.

We also read Squadron Supreme #3 and got some pretty unacceptable behavior from one of them old boys.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 137 – The Boys + Squadron Supreme #2

The Boys is a show. It seems to be a pretty popular one, so we read the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson that inspired it. This was an unwise decision. The levels of sex and gore in these pages had us questioning if we had become our own moms.

We moved onto Squadron Supreme #2 as quickly as we could.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 136 – Rat Queens + Squadron Supreme #1

They’re not rats and they’re technically not queens, they’re Rat Queens! A band of D&D-esque adventurers in a D&D-esque world just starting fights everywhere they go. We read the first volume of this Image title.

And then we begin our long read of Mark Gruenwald’s Squadron Supreme from 1984, which is some nice escapist fiction about fixing our broken brainwashed government.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 135 – Marvel Assistant Editors’ Month 1984 + JLA/Avengers #4

Madness! Chaos! Anything goes! It’s Assistant Editors’ Month at Marvel!

Back in 1984, when all the head editors were off at conventions, they handed the reigns over to their assistants who had a lot of fun with their freedom.

We read Thing #7, Defenders #127, Avengers #239, Dazzler #30, and the infamous takedown of Galactus by Aunt May and Franklin Richards in Marvel Team-Up #137.

We also finished out JLA/Avengers #4!

Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 134 – I Hate Fairyland by Skottie Young + JLA/Avengers #3

It’s a scientific fact that stories about maniacal ax-wielding children are always entertaining. I Hate Fairyland is no exception, although I guess technically it’s about a woman who just looks like a kid because she’s spent 27 years stuck in a sugary wonderland.

We read the first 5 issues of writer/artist Skottie Young’s recent Image series and then we continued JLA/Avengers with issue #3.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 133 – Aliens vs. Predator + JLA/Avengers #2

In 1989, long before the AVP movies, Dark Horse published a few short stories that brought the Alien and Predator franchises into the same universe.

In 1990, they kicked off a full miniseries of Aliens vs Predator. Now, with the news that Dark Horse is losing their rights to the licenses, we take a look back at that original miniseries that forever intertwined these two foes.

We also continue JLA/Avengers with issue #2.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 132 – Green Lantern/Green Arrow: Hard Travelin’ Heroes + JLA/Avengers #1

This week on the show, we remember Dennis O’Neil with a look back at his run with Neal Adams on Green Lantern from 1970, in which he explored a few topics that superheroes didn’t often tackle.

Green Lantern shared the spotlight with Green Arrow to start their “Hard Travelin’ Heroes” Era, and we read issues 76-81. After that we jumped into another DC/Marvel team-up with the first issue of JLA/Avengers from 2003.
