Some of My Friends Read Comics 162 – Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen (2019) #1-6 + The Life & Times of Scrooge McDuck #3

Jimmy Olsen?!??! It’s easy to forget that Superman’s Pal used to have his own long-running series filled with adventures, but now he’s back and winning Eisner Awards thanks to Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber!

We read the first half of the 2019 maxi-series which is all about the murder of Jimmy Olsen’s fake body double.

Then we continued The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with Chapter 3!


Next Time: We finish up Jimmy Olsen with issues #7-12!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 051 – Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers


It’s become a little April Fools tradition of ours to do a silly comic, but we learned that Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers (a 4-issue mini from 2009) is surprisingly faithful to the Marvel canon.

MVP for best character goes to Frog Thor aka Throg and that doesn’t make you want to read this then I don’t want to know you.


Some of My Friends Read Comics 042 – Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E.


Nextwave! A little Marvel series you’ve maybe never heard of that’s generated quite a bit of a cult following. Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen take us on a wild ride that manages to both celebrate and parody everything we love about superhero comics.

We read the first 6 issues, join us to find out if we exploded!


Some of My Friends Read Comics 025 – Not Brand Echh


It’s April Fools Day and Chris played one hell of an unintentional prank on us by choosing Not Brand Echh for this week’s episode.

We read the first three issues of Stan Lee’s 1967 attempt to make a Marvel comedy magazine and, to be honest, we had a pretty great time ripping this thing to shreds while searching for any jokes.

It also gave us a great chance to talk about a bunch of other funny comics that are actually worth reading! All that and more on today’s Bum Of My Bends Bead Bomics!

Who says a podcast has to be good??
