Some of My Friends Read Comics 080 – Action Comics #1000, Crisis on Infinite Earths #1, and Free Comic Book Day 2018


It’s a major milestone for the Man of Steel as we read the newly released Action Comics #1000, filled with stories honoring Superman as well as Brian Michael Bendis’ first story after his move from Marvel to DC.

And since we’re reading something so modern, we figured we’d take a look at various offerings from this year’s Free Comic Book Day.

AND on top of all that we’re starting our deep dive into the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths by reading the first issue. That’s a lot of stuff!


Next Time: Infinity War and Crisis on Infinite Earths #2

Some of My Friends Read Comics 040 – Doctor Strange: The Oath


Doctor Strange is almost here! If the trailers are to be believed, Marvel’s next movie is going to have us unwrapping our minds, opening them up to new possibilities.

We figured we’d better get some practice with that, so we read a Doctor Strange miniseries from 2007 called The Oath written by frenemy of the show, Brian K. Vaughan, and drawn by Marcos Martin.

Join us to find out which otherworldly horror we’re getting tattoos of!


Some of My Friends Read Comics 034 – Paper Girls


And the Eisner for Best New Series goes to… PAPER GIRLS by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang!

We took a look at the first story arc in issues 1-5 and tried to piece together what we could from this bizarre time travel story. The room was pretty split as we tried to make the case for and against their Eisner win.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 013 – Runaways by Brian K. Vaughan


Kids run away for lots of reasons, but most of the time it’s because they find out their parents are supervillains, right? Right?

Brian K. Vaughan (Saga, Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina) brings us one of Marvel’s most original superhero teams since the 60’s and one of the greatest entry points for any reader into the wonderful world of comic books.
