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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
