We haven’t read nearly enough Hulk for this show, so we thought we’d read Future Imperfect by Peter David and George Perez. The Hulk has to stop an evil old version of himself from ruining the future. In just 2 issues, The Maestro manages to make a strong name for himself as a serious villain.
Afterwards, we continue The Life & Times of Scrooge McDuck with part 11 in which Scrooge unfortunately also establishes himself as a serious villain.
Hawkeye is one of those poor characters who also seems to be the butt of jokes for his lack of powers. The Matt Fraction & David Aja series from 2012 is widely regarded as one of Hawkeye’s best, so we thought we’d see what it had to offer.
But wait… Clint Barton and Kate Bishop are BOTH Hawkeye around this time. Is that okay? (It’s fine.)
There’s a bonus Young Avengers story in this volume too, which we read before jumping over to The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck #8, which gave us a taste of that classic DUCK RAGE.
They got a whole movie but we have no idea. We decided the Neil Gaiman & John Romita, Jr. 6-issue miniseries from 2006 would be a decent place to start. Apparently it was so good they gave it a 7th issue! Wow, good job Eternals.
And of course, we continued our read of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with issue #7.
The number 7 is all over this episode. Numerology nerds take note.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is back after a massive hiatus! What???? Is this real life? Yes, it’s really happening. We read the first 5 issues forever ago and now it’s time to finally read issues #6-8.
At the time of this posting, a 9th issue has also been published.
Like for real for real.
We’re also officially halfway through The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, with issue 6 to round out his full rogues gallery.
This Jimmy Olsen story has too many characters we’ve never heard of, but now that we’ve read the back half of Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber’s 12-issue Eisner winning maxiseries, we kind of love them all.
We also continued reading through The Life & Times of Scrooge McDuck with Chapter 4!
Jimmy Olsen?!??! It’s easy to forget that Superman’s Pal used to have his own long-running series filled with adventures, but now he’s back and winning Eisner Awards thanks to Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber!
We read the first half of the 2019 maxi-series which is all about the murder of Jimmy Olsen’s fake body double.
Then we continued The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with Chapter 3!
Shang-Chi! CM Punk! It’s a double-topical episode! Shang-Chi is finally getting a movie and we admittedly knew absolutely nothing about him, so we went back to his beginnings in Special Marvel Edition #15 & #16 which was then renamed to Master of Kung Fu and the story continued with #17-19.
But we didn’t stop there! We also read Master of Kung Fu #126 written by the Best in the World himself, CM Punk.
Then we continued our long-read of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with #2. So much content!!!
Some of my friends… WATCH WRESTLING?!?!? We delved into the squared circle with this episode by reading a biography of the biggest man in the industry, Andre the Giant: Life and Legend by Brian Box Brown.
Chris and Kia did their best to teach Vince all about this weird world but really we all learned how big of an asshole Andre was.
Then we moved onto our next long read: The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck by Don Rosa. That’s right, the ducks are back baby!!!!!!!
