Some of My Friends Read Comics 203 – All-Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder #7-10 + Knightfall #10

It’s time.

Time to revisit one of the worst comics we’ve ever read on the show… Frank Miller’s All Star Batman & Robin, the famously crass and unfinished alternate universe version of “The Goddamn Batman.”

Our friend Nick (from the Your Stupid Minds podcast) joined us back when we read the first 6 issues, so of course we had to invite him back to talk about issues 7-10.

We were all desperate for some classic Batman after that, so Nick also joined us as we continued our long read of Batman: Knightfall with Chapter 10 in Detective Comics #663.


Next Time: Cosmic Ghost Rider (2018) + Knightfall #11 (The Breaking of the Batman)

Some of My Friends Read Comics 177 – All-Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder #1-6 + The Korvac Saga #6 (Avengers #172)

For today’s episode, we’re diving into one of the most poorly received Batman comics of all time from the “All-Star” creative team of Frank Miller and Jim Lee.

We had a good time reading All-Star Superman a while back, so how bad could this be? Embarrassingly bad? Offensively bad? Incomprehensibly bad? Maybe all of the above.

It’s so bad that we needed our friend Nick from the Your Stupid Minds podcast to help us wade through it.

Join us as we read All-Star Batman & Robin #1-6, and then continue our long read of the Korvac Saga with Avengers #172.


Next Time: We return to the Age of Apocalypse with Factor X #1-4

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


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!


Announcing Our Newest Show: Some of My Friends Read Comics

Chris, Kia, and Vince are happy to announce the launch of “Some of My Friends Read Comics”, the newest show to the All My Friends Are Right Here Network.

Search for “Some of My Friends Read Comics” on iTunes or your favorite podcast service!


In our first episode, we take a look at Daredevil: Born Again from Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli.  Big bad nurses, stabby Santas, and bowling balls to the head. It’s all right here in Born Again.

We follow Matt Murdock as he gets more paranoid than we’ve ever seen him before and falls into a deep pit of depression. But hey, can you blame the guy? You’d be a wreck too if the Kingpin discovered your secret identity and dismantled your entire life.

Chris, Vince, and Kia go through this story and discuss classic villain tropes, comparisons to Batman, and decide once and for all whether it really deserves to be called a classic. All without giving away any spoilers for the new Netflix series, we promise!

If you want to read it for yourself, you can grab a digital version of this 7-issue story for $4.99 at Comixology, read it with your Marvel Unlimited subscription, or just grab it from Amazon.
