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!
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)
