Some of My Friends Read Comics 199 – Young Avengers, Pt. 2 + Knightfall #6

It’s time for the 2nd half of our Young Avengers two-parter! We dive into issues #7-12 and learn more about Teddy’s birthright while also speed-running the secret of Billy’s speedster twin brother (because they gotta wrap this series up ASAP).

Then we continue Batman: Knightfall with Chapter 6 in Detective Comics #661, where we learn to NEVER mess with the firefighter’s union.


Next Time: Our 200th Episode Celebration with Alan Moore’s 1963.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 198 – Young Avengers, Pt. 1 + Knightfall #5

We’re jumping back to mid-2000s Marvel with a 2-part look at Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung’s Young Avengers, a brand new teen superhero team starring Kate Bishop, Cassie Lang, and some other friends from the MCU!

We also get to spend plenty of time with Jessica Jones, Captain America, and Iron Man as they try to figure out just who the Young Avengers are and why Kang is involved.

Then the Joker hires a Scarecrow-knockoff in Chapter 5 of Knightfall in Batman #494.


Next Time: We finish Young Avengers with issues 7-12!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 015 – Alias: The Underneath (AKA Jessica Jones)


Jessica Jones is almost on Netflix! We’re pumped but we didn’t want to accidentally spoil anything, so we read a story from her debut series, Alias, that definitely won’t have anything to do with the show.

In issues 16-21, Jessica runs around looking for Spider-Woman (Women?), she sleeps with Ant-Man (Paul Rudd?), and she’s gotta deal with that idiot, Speedball, and his dumb balls bouncing all over the place (????).

Not only that, but we throw in b-b-b-bonus issue #10 where she scams J. Jonah Jameson and the Daily Bugle. Classic Jessica.
