We’re starting a couple of classics today from very different eras! First up it’s Ed Brubaker’s Winter Soldier run on Captain America, which provided the basis for the second Captain America film. We’re planning to read the whole thing eventually, but for today we’re just doing the first volume.
Then we’re starting our long-read of the first year of Amazing Spider-Man. That’s right, all the way from the beginning. If it’s any good, maybe we’ll read the next 60 years worth as well.
There aren’t main writer/artist pairs in comics who work together as consistently as Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips, and yet we’ve never covered their work!
We finally rectify that by reading a spin-off of their long standing Criminal series called Bad Weekend, in which we learn about all kinds of shady practices behind the scenes of the comic book industry.
And then we keep diving deeper into Marvel vs DC with issue #2.
