Some of My Friends Read Comics 114 – Locke & Key + All-Star Superman #11

somfrc114

What’s up, spooks? Time for some scary comics for the spookiest month of the year. First up is Locke & Key by Joe Hill who for some reason reminds us all of Stephen King. Hmm, wonder why that is.

Anyways, it’s a book about the scariest thing in existence: KEYS. We read the 1st volume: Welcome to Lovecraft.

And we’re so, so close to the end of All Star Superman with issue #11.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! We’re celebrating our neighbors our neighbors up north by reading about their premiere superhero team, Alpha Flight!

We checked out their 1st appearance in Uncanny X-Men #120 and then read issues 1-4 of their ongoing series written and drawn by John Byrne.

Listen as we try to figure out how Vindicator / Guardian / Captain Canada is an even more milquetoast version of Cyclops. And then Clark Kent gets the scoop of a lifetime in All Star Superman #10!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 112 – Teen Titans: The Judas Contract + All-Star Superman #9

somfrc112

There’s a spy in the Teen Titans… and she works for Deathstroke! Dick Grayson drops the Robin mantle to debut Nightwing! There’s a new team member named Jericho, a sweet little mute boy!

It’s the Judas Contract from Tales of the Teen Titans #42-44 and Teen Titans Annual #3.

And over in All Star Superman #9, Clark deals with some real assholes!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 111 – Spider-Man/Venom: Maximum Carnage Pt. 2 + All-Star Superman #8

somfrc111

Whoa, Carnage is so Maximum it’s taking us two episodes to get through it. Spider-Man seems to be having a tough time getting through Maximum Carnage as well, because in parts 8-14 he really just can’t deal anymore.

All Star Superman also rolls on with issue 8. Booooooo!!!!! (Don’t worry, that’s a Bizarro Boo.)

Some of My Friends Read Comics 109 – Wolverine: Weapon X by Barry Windsor-Smith + All-Star Superman #6

somfrc109

It may seem hard to believe, but there used to be a time when we knew little to nothing about Wolverine’s origins. The Weapon X story from 1991 by Barry Windsor-Smith began to fill in some gaps.

Originally told in small chunks appearing in Marvel Comics Presents #72-84, it’s become one of the classic Wolverine stories in his history.

Plus, we continue All-Star Superman with issue 6.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 108 – Animal Man: The Hunt + All-Star Superman #5

somfrc108

Animal Man has never exactly been one of DC’s biggest heroes, but he got a reboot in 2011 for the New 52 written by Jeff Lemire with some gruesome, horrific art by Travel Foreman.

We read the first volume which saw him re-discover his origin, find out that his daughter can turn human arms into chicken arms, and start making his way toward the Swamp Thing.

And then in All Star Superman #5, Clark Kent interview Lex Luthor in prison!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 107 – The Flintstones (2016) + All-Star Superman #4

somfrc107

If the modern stone age family wasn’t modern enough for you, then we’ve got good news: it’s a reboot, baby! Mark Russell and Steve Pugh re-imagined The Flintstones in this 2016 series filled with cave puns, science “facts,” and hot takes on society.

We also finally learn the origin of Yabba Dabba Doo, a secret that hardcore Flintstones fans have been dying to learn, probably.

Plus All Star Superman #4!
