Way back in episode 19, we read our first Thanos comic when he returned from death in 1990 and started collected the Infinity Gems. Now, exactly 100 episodes later, we decided we’d take a look at how he actually died in the first place.
It was surprisingly earlier in 1977’s Marvel Two-In-One Annual #2, written and drawn by Jim Starlin (because who else would it be?).
And then we relive the terror of Galactus in Marvels #3!
Next Time: Superman & Alan Moore times two with “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow” and “Superman: For the Man Who Has Everything”
The holidays are upon us and you know what that means: Ducks. Specifically Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck. We take a look at the very 1st appearance of Scrooge McDuck in “Christmas on Bear Mountain” from way back in 1947 and then “A Christmas for Shacktown” in 1951, both written and drawn by “the good duck artist,” Carl Barks.
And the it’s on to the mutant scare in Marvels #2!
Next Time: The (Original) Death of Thanos from Marvel Two-in-One Annual #2 (1977)
It’s time to continue Marvel 1602! In the last 4 issues of the miniseries, we make our way to America and find out how this universe connects to our regular 616 universe.
But will Gaiman’s 1602 survive? (Spoiler alert: nothing ever dies).
And we also get our long read of Marvels by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross really rolling with issue #1.
Next Time: Donald Duck in “Christmas on Bear Mountain” (Scrooge McDuck’s first appearance) and “A Christmas for Shacktown”
On this episode, I look at a pairing of two things that should’ve gone perfectly together (Mega Man and Soccer) and discover the biggest mistake of my childhood.
Back in the 1600s, there were apparently superheroes in England. I don’t know because I wasn’t there, but I will take Neil Gaiman’s word for it.
He wrote about Marvel 1602 in an 8-issue miniseries that very strangely seems to parallel the Marvel Universe we are already familiar with. We read the first 4 issues and then we started our long read of Marvels with issue #0, which takes place in the 40s.
So much history! My head hurts.
Next Time: Marvel 1602 #5-8 + Marvels #1
It’s (after) Halloween! And we continue our tradition of releasing a late episode about late, spooky comics with Jughead: The Hunger!
We read the first volume to see if this is another clever take on classic comics like Sabrina was or just an excuse to tell a werewolf story with Archie characters.
And we also finish off All Star Superman with issue #12!
Next Time: Marvel 1602 Pt. 1 (#1-4) and Marvels #0
On this episode, we take a look at the Toy Story game for the Sega Genesis, which was ostensibly a 2D sidescroller, but also an endless runner, a racing game, and a Doomclone first-person shooter?
Also, a bonus look at the Game Boy version of Toy Story!
