Some of My Friends Read Comics 188 – She-Hulk: Time Trials by Dan Slott + JLA #159

She-Hulk has her own show! And it seems to take a lot of inspiration from the Dan Slott run that we visited a while back.

We dive back into it with Volume 3: Time Trials, which collects #1-5 from the 2005 She-Hulk series. There’s cowboys, jealousy, and time cops: the three perfect ingredients in any story.

Then we read our next Earth-2 book with a JLA/JSA team-up in Justice League of America #159.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 073 – She-Hulk (2004) by Dan Slott

Anyone else ever been in a court room, representing a ghost or maybe Spider-Man, and just dying to change into She-Hulk?

But you can’t because your boss really wants you to stay regular old Jennifer Walters? But then he screws up by letting a bunch of miniaturized super-villains escape from a high-tech prison? Yeah, me neither.

Join us as we read She-Hulk 1-6 from 2004!

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

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 033 – Past Eisner Award Winners

somfrc033

It’s our 2016 Eisner Pre-Show Spectacular! As we gear up for the awards, we take a look at three past winners of the “Best Single Issue” award. Astro City #4 from 1996, Tom Strong #1 from 2000, and Hawkeye #11 from 2014.

We also read one of this year’s nominees, Silver Surfer #11, and we would have read them all but indie comics can be hard to find sometimes!

We talk about all four of these very different stories and decide if they were indeed worthy of the coveted Eisner award. And we don’t agree!
