Some of My Friends Read Comics 067 – Kingdom Come

somfrc067

Justice League’s almost out, but we had the brilliant idea of reading about the FUTURE JLA from Alex Ross and Mark Waid’s Kingdom Come in 1996. A beautifully painted miniseries where the only characters that matter are Superman and Batman.

Turns out it’s barely about the Justice League. Whoops! But hey, at least it’s pretty.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 048 – Flash by Mark Waid

For being one of DC’s most important heroes, we sure haven’t given the Flash much attention.

We tried to remedy that by reading a classic Mark Waid story from the early 90s called The Return of Barry Allen, a story that manages to encompass every generation of the Flash.

You’ll get the modern Flash, Wally West. You’ll get the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. And, of course, you’ll get the return of the titular Silver Age Flash… unless there’s a plot twist of some sort… but don’t worry, I’m sure that won’t happen…

Some of My Friends Read Comics 036 – Ruse by Mark Waid

It’s about time we did another non-superhero book. This time we jump to the Crossgen universe (yes, they had a universe!) to read Ruse by one of our favorites writers, Mark Waid.

It’s a Sherlock Holmes story, but if it focused more on a female Watson who uses time-stop magic that Sherlock doesn’t know about.

Don’t worry, it’ll all make sense. Join us for Ruse 1-5!
