Some of My Friends Read Comics 065 – The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

somfrc065

Sabrina the Teenage Witch, once a beloved TGIF star, has finally received a reboot. And believe it or not, it’s one of the best horror comics we’ve ever read.

Sure, her aunts Zelda and Hilda are still there, but they quite enjoy eating people and making sure that Sabrina completes her satanic rituals. Salem the talking cat is there too, along with a host of other animal familiars.

And blood.

Lots of blood.

Join our coven as we read Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #1-5.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 063 – Marvel Knights

somfrc063

For this episode, we’re reading Marvel’s comic about all their street-level heroes teaming up, The Defenders! … wait…no, Marvel Knights!

It’s like the Defenders TV show except all the characters are different. Well that’s not totally true, Daredevil is there.

And The Punisher fights a weird giant spider-person.

Just listen to the episode, it’ll all make sense.

Not sure what to read? There’s always more Moore! We continue our tour of Alan Moore’s ABC imprint with Promethea, his take on a female warrior goddess hero.

But if you’re expecting Wonder Woman, think again.

In classic Moore fashion, we end up with a story that pushes the boundaries of the imagination with artwork by J.H. Williams III bringing that vision to life.

Join us as we read Promethea #1-6.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 061 – The Tick

somfrc061

The Tick has had one heck of a ride. From black and white indie comics, to Saturday morning cartoon, to prime time sitcom, to a new streaming series on Amazon.

We thought we’d check out how it all started with Ben Edlund’s first 6 issues from 1988. Little did we expect to find parodies of Superman and Elektra, wise-cracking minions, and French bread.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 057 – Spider-Man: The Birth of Venom

somfrc057

Spider-Man villains sure do love teasing their arrival before their full first appearances. “Dudes in Shadows” we like to call them.

This time around it’s Venom in Amazing Spider-Man #298-300. Join us as Peter tries to deal with his evil former costume while juggling his romantic troubles.

Specifically how his supermodel wife makes more money than him and wants a bigger apartment. And we feel so, sooooooo sorry for Peter. Really.

We’re heading back out to space!

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps building towards Infinity War, we’re doing the same with all of Jim Starlin’s Infinity books and this time it’s the Infinity Gauntlet, a 6-issue miniseries and one of Marvel’s best event comics of all time.

Spoiler Alert: Thanos kills everybody.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 055 – Wonder Woman by George Perez

There’s a Wonder Woman movie coming out, so we read some Wonder Woman comics because that’s how these things work.

We decided on George Perez’s 1987 reboot, filled to the tippy top with Greek gods, evil body doubles, and really creepy banshee lady.

Join us for Wonder Woman #1-6!
