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 045 – Swamp Thing by Alan Moore

somfrc045

It’s been way too long since we read some Alan Moore, so it’s time to remedy that with his run on Swamp Thing from the early 80’s.

It’s dark, twisted stuff that turned the concept of Swamp Thing on its head and reinvigorated the franchise and influenced to many other comics to this day.

And that terrific horrific art by Stephen Bissette…. treat yourself.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 033 – Past Eisner Award Winners

somfrc033

It’s our 2016 Eisner Pre-Show Spectacular! As we gear up for the awards, we take a look at three past winners of the “Best Single Issue” award. Astro City #4 from 1996, Tom Strong #1 from 2000, and Hawkeye #11 from 2014.

We also read one of this year’s nominees, Silver Surfer #11, and we would have read them all but indie comics can be hard to find sometimes!

We talk about all four of these very different stories and decide if they were indeed worthy of the coveted Eisner award. And we don’t agree!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 012 – Top Ten by Alan Moore

somfrc012

In the Criminal Justice System, the super-people gotta deal with two separate, yet equally important groups. The Top Ten precinct and their dog-boss who investigate the super-crimes and the shark-people who do a terrible job of trying to defend them. This is Alan Moore’s story.

DUN DUN.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 007 – Batman: The Killing Joke

somfrc007

75 years ago, if you had told us that a guy who runs around in clown makeup stealing jewels would one day become the most iconic supervillain in comics, then we’re afraid we wouldn’t have heard you because we weren’t born yet.

In this very special episode all about The Joker, we take a look back at his first appearance in Batman #1 and then read what has been called the greatest Joker story of all time, Alan Moore’s controversial The Killing Joke. Join us, won’t you?
