Some of My Friends Read Comics 195 – DCU Infinite Holiday Special (2006) + Knightfall #2

Ho ho ho ho, it’s time for another holiday special!

This year we take a look at the DCU Infinite Holiday Special from 2006 featuring stories about Green Lantern, Supergirl, Batwoman, Shadowpact, Flash, Superman, and… Shazam? Let’s just say the card is subject to change.

Then we continue the Knightfall storyline in Detective Comics #659 where the Ventriloquist tries a bunch of new hand puppets!


Next Time: Super Mario Manga Mania

Some of My Friends Read Comics 143 – Batman: Slayride & Christmas with the Joker + Squadron Supreme #8

It’s still December, we’ve been told, which means we’re legally obligated to continue covering Christmas comics. But we broke the rules and did a cartoon too! Take that!

We went with Paul Dini’s “Slayride” in Detective Comics #826 as well as the “Christmas with the Joker” episode of Batman: The Animated Series. 

And then we continued Squadron Supreme with issue #8, in which we get an actual honest to goodness superhero fight.


Next Time: The Death of Gwen Stacy (Amazing Spider-Man #121-122) and What If Spider-Man Had Rescued Gwen Stacy (What If? #24)

Some of My Friends Read Comics 118 – Donald Duck & Scrooge McDuck Celebrate Christmas + Marvels #2


The holidays are upon us and you know what that means: Ducks. Specifically Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck. We take a look at the very 1st appearance of Scrooge McDuck in “Christmas on Bear Mountain” from way back in 1947 and then “A Christmas for Shacktown” in 1951, both written and drawn by “the good duck artist,” Carl Barks.

And the it’s on to the mutant scare in Marvels #2!


Next Time: The (Original) Death of Thanos from Marvel Two-in-One Annual #2 (1977)

Some of My Friends Read Comics 018 – Punisher Christmas Specials

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!

Few things go together better than The Punisher and Christmas (maybe peanut butter & jelly, spaghetti & meatballs, or lamb & tuna fish).  Get into the holiday spirit with Marvel’s foremost vigilante – The Punisher – as he murders a bunch of bad guys on Christmas!

In this episode, we look at the Punisher Christmas Specials from 2004, 2005, and 2006, and the gang is more divided than ever!  Listen as we fail to agree on the Punisher AT ALL.
