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 089 – Batwoman: Elegy by Greg Rucka & J.H. Williams III + Crisis 10


When Batman is dead, who gets to take over Detective Comics? Batwoman!

With issue 854, Kate Kane became the star of the title and creators Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III made sure she stepped up to the plate.

It’s not often that we get to talk about werewolves and lesbian tuxedo meet-cutes in the same episode, but here we are. Join us for Batwoman: Elegy.

Also, we near the homestretch of Crisis on Infinite Earths with issue 10, as our characters abandon the issue’s plot halfway through to do something way more interesting. And Wildcat once again is nowhere to be seen.


Next Time: Venom: Lethal Protector!
