Some of My Friends Read Comics 099 – Kree-Skrull War Part 2 + Secret Wars 9

somfrc099

We continue our last episode by finishing off the Kree Skrull War from Avengers 94-97.

We’re not entirely sure when the war started, but we do know that a fake senator (alien in disguise!) is trying to take down the Avengers by making the public scared of aliens. Bad move, dude.

And then the Inhumans show up?

We’re also nearing the end of Secret Wars with issue 9.

We’ve been talking about a lot of “Event” comics recently, and this week we’re going back to what could arguable be called the first big Marvel event, the Kree-Skrull War from Avengers 89-97.

We’re splitting it up into two parts, reading issues 89-93 this time, plus the continuation of our Secret Wars read with issue 8.

Two different Marvel events in one episode?

They said it couldn’t be done.

What happens when a bunch of Avengers villains band together to form The Masters of Evil? They take over Avengers Mansion of course! We take a look at a classic storyline by Roger Stern and John Buscema from the mid 80’s called Under Siege that ran in issues 270-277 (with a little underwater break in 272).

We’ll meet a bunch of our favorite B, C, and D-list villains and see if ol’ sock-head Baron Zemo can lead them to victory!

The Scientist, The Criminal, and The Sexist Douchebag! Primetime sitcom? Nope! It’s the three different guys that have been Ant-Man. In this episode, we sort through them and discuss *cue dramatic music* THE MANY ORIGINS OF ANT-MAN!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 003 – Godzilla Fights the Fantastic Four and Avengers

Elton John and Tim Rice with awards for song "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" - 1994 (67th)

Remember that time in the 70’s when Godzilla was shrunken down by Ant-Man, fought the Fantastic Four and the Avengers as he grew large again, traveled through time twice, and even had his photo snapped by good ol’ Spider-Man? You don’t?!?! Well it’s true! Not only did Godzilla have his very own 24-issue Marvel comic, but it’s ALL in continuity.

So come join Vince, Chris, and Kia as they relive the finale of this insane series (Godzilla: King of the Monsters #20-24) and see just how our big green dino-friend fit himself into the Marvel Universe.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 002 – Ultron Double-Feature

There’s more than one way to skin an evil murderous robot. Vince, Chris, and Kia took a look back at a couple of classic Ultron stories written 30 years apart to see just how things have changed in the comic book world.

LISTEN in amazement as they discuss differences between the movies and the comics and try to wrap their heads around exactly what the heck is going on with the Avengers.

This episode: Avengers Vol. 1 #66-68 [1969], Avengers Vol. 3 #19-22 (Ultron Unlimited) [1999]

Next episode: Marvel’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters #20-24 [1979]
