Some of My Friends Read Comics 054 – Supreme: Story of the Year, Pt. 2

somfrc054

The Story of the Year comes to a close! It’s the second half of our first two-parter as we read issues 49-52 of Alan Moore’s Supreme.

Who will be Supreme’s undoing? Will Supreme ever find love? Will that mouse find enough superheroes to fill out the roster for his 50’s baseball team?

The answers to all those questions and more can be found within!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 053 – Supreme: Story of the Year, Pt. 1

The comics industry is full of Superman knock-offs. Every creator wants to be able to tell their own version of the story, but they’ve got to change all the details if they want to avoid lawsuits from DC.

Supreme is one such knock-off who probably would have fallen into obscurity if Alan Moore hadn’t taken over the series to write a story so epic we had to split it up into our first two-part episode!

Join us as we get this story going with Supreme #41-48.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 052 – Batman: Year Two

somfrc052

It’s our 2nd year anniversary! So of course we had to keep the tradition alive and read Batman: Year Two from the late 80s, a shameless excuse to capitalize on Frank Miller’s iconic Year One.

Miller wasn’t even involved, but you’ll still see Todd McFarlane first work for DC! That’s… something.

We’ll also try to figure out why Batman would team up with the killer of his parents and why Jim Gordon has turned into a complete idiot.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 051 – Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers

somfrc051

It’s become a little April Fools tradition of ours to do a silly comic, but we learned that Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers (a 4-issue mini from 2009) is surprisingly faithful to the Marvel canon.

MVP for best character goes to Frog Thor aka Throg and that doesn’t make you want to read this then I don’t want to know you.

First vs Last 03 – X-Men Origins: Wolverine vs Logan

fvl-03

In 2009, after the abomination of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, who would have thought the Wolverine trilogy would rise from the ashes like a phoenix to bring us Logan, one of the best superhero movies of all time.

In this spoiler-filled episode, we discuss the whole Wolverine “trilogy” and how Logan and Origins have remarkably similar beats (only one movie is, you know, good). We also reflect on Hugh Jackman’s 17-year tenure as James Howlett/Logan/Wolverine. And what scenes in Logan made us cry (spoiler alert: it’s different for each of our panelists)!

Plus the answers to questions you didn’t even know you needed to know about Wolverine’s healing factor!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 050 – Iron Fist by Claremont & Byrne

somfrc050

Iron Fist is finally getting his own TV show and we’re not entirely sure who’s excited about that. We went back to the mid-70’s to read his first solo series in hopes of finding out where his appeal came from… and we came up short.

The good news is that literally every other character is way more interesting than Danny Rand himself, so there’s still plenty of fun stuff to talk about.

Join us for our 50th Episode Super Kung-Fu Podstravagaza Special which is secretly hosted by skeletons wearing our clothes.
