Some of My Friends Read Comics 081 – Infinity War (the Comic)

somfrc081

Infinity War “The Comic” is a little different from Infinity War “The Movie.”

There are lots of evil doppelgangers, Adam Warlock is the most important character, and the infinity gems aren’t working together (due to a previously established court ruling).

Galactus also shows up long enough to make a real boneheaded move. Nice going, Galactus.

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

somfrc080

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!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 064 – Annihilation

somfrc064

Marvel goes back to space! After several decades of neglecting some of their outer space properties, they decided to bring it all back to the spotlight with a big cosmic event in 2006 called Annihilation.

There were a lot of aliens we hadn’t met before, but a few familiar faces (even if Star-Lord did have a weird cybernetic eye).

We read the main event in issues 1-6, but we’ll also discuss all the other event comics that went along with it so we can try to sort through this gigantic cast of characters.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 048 – Flash by Mark Waid

somfrc048

For being one of DC’s most important heroes, we sure haven’t given the Flash much attention.

We tried to remedy that by reading a classic Mark Waid story from the early 90s called The Return of Barry Allen, a story that manages to encompass every generation of the Flash.

You’ll get the modern Flash, Wally West. You’ll get the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. And, of course, you’ll get the return of the titular Silver Age Flash… unless there’s a plot twist of some sort… but don’t worry, I’m sure that won’t happen…

Some of My Friends Read Comics 044 – Great Lakes Avengers and GLX-Mas

somfrc044

It’s the mid-2000’s revival that nobody asked for! But hot damn was it amazing. It’s Squirrel Girl! And she joined the Great Lakes Avengers in a little miniseries called GLA: Misassembled.

But then they became the GLX (because X-Men, duh) and so then there was a GLX-Mas one-shot special and we just went ahead and read the whole damn thing.

There’s a death in every single issue, surely that will put you in the holiday spirit!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 042 – Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E.

somfrc042

Nextwave! A little Marvel series you’ve maybe never heard of that’s generated quite a bit of a cult following. Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen take us on a wild ride that manages to both celebrate and parody everything we love about superhero comics.

We read the first 6 issues, join us to find out if we exploded!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 037 – Justice League International

somfrc037

This week, we go back to the late 1980s — a time when most comics were trying to imitate that Frank Miller & Alan Moore were bringing with Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen.

Cue JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL!

Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis attempt to re-form DC’s flagship book as a humorous, light-hearted funny book. Is it successful?  Help us decide as we read JLI 7-13!
