Detective Comics just released their milestone 1000th issue, so of course we had to read it! But of course we had to take a look back in time and visit the first appears of Batman aka “The Bat-Man” in Detective Comics #27 as well.
Did Detective Comics #1000 do better or worse than Action Comics #1000?
Then we approach the end of Secret Wars with issue #11.
Next Time: Avengers Forever (1998) 1-6 + Secret Wars Finale!
We’ve been talking about a lot of “Event” comics recently, and this week we’re going back to what could arguable be called the first big Marvel event, the Kree-Skrull War from Avengers 89-97.
We’re splitting it up into two parts, reading issues 89-93 this time, plus the continuation of our Secret Wars read with issue 8.
Two different Marvel events in one episode?
They said it couldn’t be done.

Panel of the Week
We’re back! After a little break, we’re picking up right where we left off with a Halloween episode in December.
We read Volume 1 of Afterlife With Archie, which of course led us to some discussion about Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and the CW’s “Riverdale” TV series.
We also continue reading Secret Wars with issue 2 and Vince fills us in on how his personal Justice League is coming along.
Next Time: We remember Stan Lee with Amazing Fantasy 15, Fantastic Four #1, and Avengers #1!
We’ve reached the final issue of Crisis on Infinite Earths!
And as our first long-read book ends, we jump right into our next one and begin Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars (yes, that’s the full title).
We look back at the entirety of DC’s first event and what it meant for comics as a whole before reading Secret Wars #1 to see what direction Marvel took for their first event.
And we’ll keep reading an issue of Secret Wars every episode to see how the story progresses!
