Some of My Friends Read Comics 174 – Batman: Dark Victory, Pt. 2 + The Korvac Saga #3 (Avengers #168)

In this week’s episode, we check out the origin of Batman’s famous sidekick, Dick Grayson aka the first Robin!

Wait, I thought we were reading the 2nd half of Batman: Dark Victory… this episode was supposed to be issues 7-13. We were gonna find out who the Hangman Holiday killer was and how it relates to Batman, Two-Face, and all the Gotham mob families.

Oh, that all happens too, I see.

We also continue the Korvac Saga with Avengers #168 in which Captain America acts like a major asshole.

Some of My Friends 173 – Batman: Dark Victory, Pt. 1 + Korvac Saga #2 (Avengers #167)

Remember about 6 years ago when we read Batman: The Long Halloween about a serial killer who strikes on major holidays?

Well it’s time for the sequel, Batman: Dark Victory, which is about a serial killer… who strikes on major holidays. Cool. It’s a 13-issue series, technically 14 since there’s a little prequel issue, but we start off by just reading #0-6.

Then we go onto The Korvac Saga in Avengers #167, which includes a fashion show! Fun!

Next Time: We finish up Dark Victory!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 172 – Age of Apocalypse: The Astonishing X-Men + Korvac Saga #1 (Thor Annual #6)

It’s time to dive into our first Age of Apocalypse miniseries with the Astonishing X-Men! We meet Blink, Morph, a Sabretooth that acts a lot like Wolverine, a Rogue that’s married to Magneto, and Apocalypse’s first horseman.

We also start our long read of the Korvac Saga with a little bit of backstory from Thor Annual #6 where we jump into the 30th century and meet the original Guardians of the Galaxy. You’ll probably recognize Yondu, he’s there. And the villains have a cute blob you might like too.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 014 – Batman: The Long Halloween

somfrc014

Batman embarks on a search for the mysterious “Holiday” Killer who, starting on Halloween, kills mobsters on major holidays until Batman finally catches Holiday a year later…

Wait, a year?!?! Better improve those detective skills, Bruce.

To be fair, he gets distracted by every single member of his rogues gallery and on top of all that he has to watch Harvey Dent go crazy and turn into Two-Face.

Join us as we read The Long Halloween and disagree completely on just about every aspect of this story!
