We tried to read Spider-Man: The Death of Jean DeWolff, but I think we must have picked up the wrong comic.
DeWolff, Spider-Man’s long-time friend in the NYPD, was barely in it!
We did get a little story about Daredevil and some villain named Sin-Eater?
And then we talked about politics even though we promised we wouldn’t. Plus Secret Wars rolls on with issue 6!
Next Time: Nightwing: Year One (Nightwing 101-106)
We’ve reached the final issue of Crisis on Infinite Earths!
And as our first long-read book ends, we jump right into our next one and begin Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars (yes, that’s the full title).
We look back at the entirety of DC’s first event and what it meant for comics as a whole before reading Secret Wars #1 to see what direction Marvel took for their first event.
And we’ll keep reading an issue of Secret Wars every episode to see how the story progresses!
Next Time: Afterlife with Archie
Does it count as a spoiler if it’s in the title? Jim Starlin don’t care, he does what he wants.
He and Marvel changed up their regular comic book format with The Death of Captain Marvel in 1982, the beginning of a line of original graphic novels intended to be richer stories for a more mature audience and published like traditional books.
But what kills him?!?!?! Sorry, no spoilers.
Next Time: Amazing Spider-Man #400: The Death of Aunt May
When it comes to classic superteams, one of the first names that comes up is the Teen Titans.
It started out as kid versions of DC’s big guns, but when Marv Wolfman and George Perez reinvented the series with The New Teen Titans, they became one of the most popular teams of the 80’s.
Join us as we check out issues 1-6 from 1980!
