What’s up, spooks? Time for some scary comics for the spookiest month of the year. First up is Locke & Key by Joe Hill who for some reason reminds us all of Stephen King. Hmm, wonder why that is.
Anyways, it’s a book about the scariest thing in existence: KEYS. We read the 1st volume: Welcome to Lovecraft.
And we’re so, so close to the end of All Star Superman with issue #11.
Next Time: Jughead: The Hunger, Vol. 1
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! We’re celebrating our neighbors our neighbors up north by reading about their premiere superhero team, Alpha Flight!
We checked out their 1st appearance in Uncanny X-Men #120 and then read issues 1-4 of their ongoing series written and drawn by John Byrne.
Listen as we try to figure out how Vindicator / Guardian / Captain Canada is an even more milquetoast version of Cyclops. And then Clark Kent gets the scoop of a lifetime in All Star Superman #10!
Next Time: Locke & Key, Volume 1: Welcome to Lovecraft
And here’s the Ant-Man hiding in Guardian’s box that Vince saw at Walmart!
That Was a Game, the YouTube series focusing on forgotten games related to the franchises you love, returns for an all-new season!
This time, we’re focusing on Toy Story Racer, a 3D racing game for the Game Boy Color!
There’s a spy in the Teen Titans… and she works for Deathstroke! Dick Grayson drops the Robin mantle to debut Nightwing! There’s a new team member named Jericho, a sweet little mute boy!
It’s the Judas Contract from Tales of the Teen Titans #42-44 and Teen Titans Annual #3.
And over in All Star Superman #9, Clark deals with some real assholes!
Next Time: We celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with Alpha Flight (Uncanny X-Men #120 + Alpha Flight #1-4)
Whoa, Carnage is so Maximum it’s taking us two episodes to get through it. Spider-Man seems to be having a tough time getting through Maximum Carnage as well, because in parts 8-14 he really just can’t deal anymore.
All Star Superman also rolls on with issue 8. Booooooo!!!!! (Don’t worry, that’s a Bizarro Boo.)
Next Time: The New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (Tales of the Teen Titans #42-44, Annual #3)
Can you believe this is the 25th anniversary of the Maximum Carnage video game? A classic that has such accolades as being A Game and being Based On A Comic Book. At least we know it was a memorable comic book 14-parter that ran through the Spider-Man comics of 1993.
Actually, was it memorable? We know Carnage goes Maximum, but… what else? Let’s start finding out with parts 1-7.
We also don’t continue No Moon Superman with issue #7.
Next Time: Spider-Man/Venom: Maximum Carnage #8-14
It may seem hard to believe, but there used to be a time when we knew little to nothing about Wolverine’s origins. The Weapon X story from 1991 by Barry Windsor-Smith began to fill in some gaps.
Originally told in small chunks appearing in Marvel Comics Presents #72-84, it’s become one of the classic Wolverine stories in his history.
Plus, we continue All-Star Superman with issue 6.
