Some of My Friends Read Comics 113 – Alpha Flight + All-Star Superman #10

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! We’re celebrating our neighbors our neighbors up north by reading about their premiere superhero team, Alpha Flight!

We checked out their 1st appearance in Uncanny X-Men #120 and then read issues 1-4 of their ongoing series written and drawn by John Byrne.

Listen as we try to figure out how Vindicator / Guardian / Captain Canada is an even more milquetoast version of Cyclops. And then Clark Kent gets the scoop of a lifetime in All Star Superman #10!

Jean Grey’s lost it.

Mastermind’s been making her think she’s in the past, she’s been smooching dudes she shouldn’t be smooching, and now the Phoenix Force has moved in and I don’t think she can handle it.

All this while the X-Men fight fancy folks and aliens in the conclusion of the Dark Phoenix Saga from Uncanny X-Men #133-137.

And in All Star Superman #3, we meet some jerks!

The first appearances of Kitty Pryde, Dazzler, AND Emma Frost? The Dark Phoenix Saga is a story so big, we wouldn’t dream of trying to contain it in one episode.

We read the first half in Uncanny X-Men #129-132 and watched as Scott Summers couldn’t handle Jean’s smoochin’ ways.

And in All-Star Superman #2, what’s hidden in Superman’s secret room?!?!?!

Happy Holidays! We’re embracing the spirit of togetherness by reading seasonal comics by both DC AND Marvel!

For DC, we’re covering Gotham Central #12-15 about a murderous rampage from the Joker just days before Christmas.

For Marvel, it’s Uncanny X-Men #143 featuring Kitty Pryde alone at the X-Mansion while everyone is away on vacation.

Join us and see if you can figure out who secretly got drunk on eggnog while we recorded.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 050 – Iron Fist by Claremont & Byrne

somfrc050

Iron Fist is finally getting his own TV show and we’re not entirely sure who’s excited about that. We went back to the mid-70’s to read his first solo series in hopes of finding out where his appeal came from… and we came up short.

The good news is that literally every other character is way more interesting than Danny Rand himself, so there’s still plenty of fun stuff to talk about.

Join us for our 50th Episode Super Kung-Fu Podstravagaza Special which is secretly hosted by skeletons wearing our clothes.
