Some of My Friends Read Comics 058 – Prez

somfrc058

His name is Prez. He was the first teenage president of the USA.

Unfortunately he only got 4 issues from DC back in 1973.

He sure made the most of them though, defeating some Russians, a bunch of gun nuts, and even Dracula and the Wolf Man.

Since poor Prez deserved a decent send-off, we also read Sandman #54 to see Neil Gaiman’s take on the same character 20 years later!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 055 – Wonder Woman by George Perez

somfrc055

There’s a Wonder Woman movie coming out, so we read some Wonder Woman comics because that’s how these things work.

We decided on George Perez’s 1987 reboot, filled to the tippy top with Greek gods, evil body doubles, and really creepy banshee lady.

Join us for Wonder Woman #1-6!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 052 – Batman: Year Two

somfrc052

It’s our 2nd year anniversary! So of course we had to keep the tradition alive and read Batman: Year Two from the late 80s, a shameless excuse to capitalize on Frank Miller’s iconic Year One.

Miller wasn’t even involved, but you’ll still see Todd McFarlane first work for DC! That’s… something.

We’ll also try to figure out why Batman would team up with the killer of his parents and why Jim Gordon has turned into a complete idiot.

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 043 – Robin: Year One

somfrc043

Batman’s not the only hero to get a Year One.

This time around, the gang reads Robin: Year One to see how it compares to the Frank Miller classic.

We’ll discuss how easy it is to mix up all the Robins, the merits of attacking random little boys on the street, and whether or not Two-Face has a law degree.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 031 – Doom Patrol by Grant Morrison

somfrc031

Doom Patrol! A name some of us have heard far too often, but do we really know what it means?

To find out, we travel back to the late ‘80s to read the start of one of Grant Morrison’s first runs with DC comics in Doom Patrol 19-22.

We’ve got Surrealism, Dadaism, and the straight up bizarre in spades as we deal with a humans trapped in a robot body, multiple personality (and multiple super-power!) disorder, and a wheelchair bound asshole.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 026 – Batman: Year One

somfrc026

It’s our one year anniversary special! And what better way to celebrate a full year of comics than with the definitive Batman origin story, Year One!

And even better, it’s by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli, the same creators from our very first episode. Full circle, whoaaaaa!

Join us as we talk about our some of our favorite moments from Batman’s first year in action as well our own first year in action!

And did you know Bryan Cranston once played Jim Gordon? Well he did and it was great! And why isn’t Vince as good as LeBron James?

Join us for all the answers!
