Spoiler Alert: Thanos kills everybody.

On this episode: Kia, Dylan, and Vince imagine themselves as astronauts part of the Space Station’s movie planning committee.  What movie are they watching for the first night?  What movie are they watching when the Russians come to visit?  And what movie franchise or TV series are they totally binge-watching?

Some of My Friends Read Comics 023 – Warlock by Jim Starlin


Before we recorded our Thanos episode a couple months back, we knew we were gonna eventually head back to outer space to cover the Infinity Guantlet.

But we had so much fun reading Thanos Quest and were so impressed with the writing and art of Jim Starlin that we decided to head back even sooner!

This time we took a look at Adam Warlock, a character that Vince and Kia knew absolutely NOTHING about, other than that he appeared in the background of Guardians of the Galaxy and was eventually gonna be pretty important.

Luckily, Chris is here as usual to clarify exactly what the heck is going on. Join us as we read Strange Tales 178-181 and Warlock 9-11!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 019 – Thanos Quest

somfrc019

Thanos! He’s a big purple dude that keeps showing up in the Marvel movies… but why is everyone always freaking out about him?

Since he’s gonna be the big bad in the next Avengers movie, we figured we’d get some backstory by reading the 1990 comics where he became a major player. And it all started with his resurrection in Silver Surver 34-38, followed by his hunt for the Infinity Gems in Thanos Quest 1-2.

Writer Jim Starlin takes us into the world of Marvel’s cosmic galaxy that he helped form, and artist Ron Lim gives us some breath-taking psychedelic images.

What a team!
