Some of My Friends Read Comics 051 – Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers

somfrc051

It’s become a little April Fools tradition of ours to do a silly comic, but we learned that Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers (a 4-issue mini from 2009) is surprisingly faithful to the Marvel canon.

MVP for best character goes to Frog Thor aka Throg and that doesn’t make you want to read this then I don’t want to know you.

First vs Last 03 – X-Men Origins: Wolverine vs Logan

fvl-03

In 2009, after the abomination of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, who would have thought the Wolverine trilogy would rise from the ashes like a phoenix to bring us Logan, one of the best superhero movies of all time.

In this spoiler-filled episode, we discuss the whole Wolverine “trilogy” and how Logan and Origins have remarkably similar beats (only one movie is, you know, good). We also reflect on Hugh Jackman’s 17-year tenure as James Howlett/Logan/Wolverine. And what scenes in Logan made us cry (spoiler alert: it’s different for each of our panelists)!

Plus the answers to questions you didn’t even know you needed to know about Wolverine’s healing factor!

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.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 044 – Great Lakes Avengers and GLX-Mas

somfrc044

It’s the mid-2000’s revival that nobody asked for! But hot damn was it amazing. It’s Squirrel Girl! And she joined the Great Lakes Avengers in a little miniseries called GLA: Misassembled.

But then they became the GLX (because X-Men, duh) and so then there was a GLX-Mas one-shot special and we just went ahead and read the whole damn thing.

There’s a death in every single issue, surely that will put you in the holiday spirit!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 042 – Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E.

somfrc042

Nextwave! A little Marvel series you’ve maybe never heard of that’s generated quite a bit of a cult following. Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen take us on a wild ride that manages to both celebrate and parody everything we love about superhero comics.

We read the first 6 issues, join us to find out if we exploded!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 040 – Doctor Strange: The Oath

somfrc040

Doctor Strange is almost here! If the trailers are to be believed, Marvel’s next movie is going to have us unwrapping our minds, opening them up to new possibilities.

We figured we’d better get some practice with that, so we read a Doctor Strange miniseries from 2007 called The Oath written by frenemy of the show, Brian K. Vaughan, and drawn by Marcos Martin.

Join us to find out which otherworldly horror we’re getting tattoos of!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 028 – Power Pack

somfrc028

How was there not a Power Pack cartoon in the ‘80s? How is there not one NOW?!?

We took a look at issues 1-4 of this 1984 Marvel superteam created by debut writer Louise Simonson and artist June Brigman.

We really let it transport us to a land of sugary cereals on Saturday morning and fake unicorn grandparents that you love more than your actual family (yes, really).

We also try to figure out why someone named Alex Power would choose the much lamer “Gee” as a codename.  Get it together, Alex. You’re an embarrassment to the Power Pack.
