Some of My Friends Read Comics 065 – The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

somfrc065

Sabrina the Teenage Witch, once a beloved TGIF star, has finally received a reboot. And believe it or not, it’s one of the best horror comics we’ve ever read.

Sure, her aunts Zelda and Hilda are still there, but they quite enjoy eating people and making sure that Sabrina completes her satanic rituals. Salem the talking cat is there too, along with a host of other animal familiars.

And blood.

Lots of blood.

Join our coven as we read Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #1-5.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 064 – Annihilation

somfrc064

Marvel goes back to space! After several decades of neglecting some of their outer space properties, they decided to bring it all back to the spotlight with a big cosmic event in 2006 called Annihilation.

There were a lot of aliens we hadn’t met before, but a few familiar faces (even if Star-Lord did have a weird cybernetic eye).

We read the main event in issues 1-6, but we’ll also discuss all the other event comics that went along with it so we can try to sort through this gigantic cast of characters.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 063 – Marvel Knights

For this episode, we’re reading Marvel’s comic about all their street-level heroes teaming up, The Defenders! … wait…no, Marvel Knights!

It’s like the Defenders TV show except all the characters are different. Well that’s not totally true, Daredevil is there.

And The Punisher fights a weird giant spider-person.

Just listen to the episode, it’ll all make sense.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 062 – Promethea by Alan Moore

somfrc062

Not sure what to read? There’s always more Moore! We continue our tour of Alan Moore’s ABC imprint with Promethea, his take on a female warrior goddess hero.

But if you’re expecting Wonder Woman, think again.

In classic Moore fashion, we end up with a story that pushes the boundaries of the imagination with artwork by J.H. Williams III bringing that vision to life.

Join us as we read Promethea #1-6.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 061 – The Tick

somfrc061

The Tick has had one heck of a ride. From black and white indie comics, to Saturday morning cartoon, to prime time sitcom, to a new streaming series on Amazon.

We thought we’d check out how it all started with Ben Edlund’s first 6 issues from 1988. Little did we expect to find parodies of Superman and Elektra, wise-cracking minions, and French bread.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 060 – Spider-Man & the Sinister Six

somfrc060

It’s a tale as old as time. Or the 60’s, really.

Spider-Man’s villains all team up to fight him. They call themselves the Sinister Six because it sounds cool (alliteration is ALWAYS cool). Then they have a million reunions because Spider-Man’s not dead yet and why not?

We read the first two incarnations of the Sinister Six in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 and then in issues #334-339.

Come for the rogues’ gallery, stay for Aunt May and Doc Ock flirting.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 059 – Preacher

somfrc059

The television adaptation of Preacher just started its 2nd season, so we decided to read the first couple of stories from the classic Vertigo comic.

But does it hold up? Or is it yet another gore-fest from writer Garth Ennis?

Special guest Rob Robinson joins us to talk about angels, demons, aliens, vampires and arse-faces as we read issues 1-7 of Preacher.
