Some of My Friends Read Comics 172 – Age of Apocalypse: The Astonishing X-Men + Korvac Saga #1 (Thor Annual #6)

It’s time to dive into our first Age of Apocalypse miniseries with the Astonishing X-Men! We meet Blink, Morph, a Sabretooth that acts a lot like Wolverine, a Rogue that’s married to Magneto, and Apocalypse’s first horseman.

We also start our long read of the Korvac Saga with a little bit of backstory from Thor Annual #6 where we jump into the 30th century and meet the original Guardians of the Galaxy. You’ll probably recognize Yondu, he’s there. And the villains have a cute blob you might like too.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 098 – Kree-Skrull War Part 1 + Secret Wars 8

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.
