Some of My Friends Read Comics 171 – Captain America: Red Menace, Vol. 1 + The Life & Times of Scrooge McDuck #12 (Finale)

It’s been quite a while since we caught up with Ed Brubaker’s run on Captain America. Last time around we discovered that the Winter Soldier is Bucky. And this week we read the next part of that run in Captain America #15-17 and then the Captain America 65th Anniversary Special. There’s a big cool robot in it.

And then it’s finally time for the last chapter of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck where Huey, Dewey, and Louie finally get to meet their great uncle!


Next Time: We return to the Age of Apocalypse with Astonishing X-Men (1995) #1-4

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!
