Some of My Friends Read Comics 197 – Wolverine and the X-Men + Knightfall #4

Can Wolverine run a school? That’s the premise of Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo’s “Wolverine and the X-Men” from 2011.

There’s more to it than that: A new Hellfire Club is attacking. The Department of Education is inspecting. One of the students should probably be in jail.

We read the first 4 issues to see how Wolverine survives. Then we continue Knightfall with Chapter 4 in Detective Comics #660.


Next Time: Young Avengers (2005) #1-6

Some of My Friends Read Comics 185 – Scalped by Jason Aaron & R.M. Guera + Superman: For All Seasons #3

It’s been a while since we read a Vertigo book, so with today’s episode we take our first foray into Jason Aaron and R. M. Guera’s Scalped, a Native American noir book with lots of rich history to play off of.

It’s a book filled with a bunch of assholes who all hate each other. Classic!

Then we continue our read of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s Superman For All Seasons with issue #3, the Fall issue, which takes a slightly different approach than the first two issues did.


Next Time: We remember comics writer Alan Grant with Detective Comics #583-586.
