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.)

Can you believe this is the 25th anniversary of the Maximum Carnage video game? A classic that has such accolades as being A Game and being Based On A Comic Book. At least we know it was a memorable comic book 14-parter that ran through the Spider-Man comics of 1993.

Actually, was it memorable? We know Carnage goes Maximum, but… what else? Let’s start finding out with parts 1-7.

We also don’t continue No Moon Superman with issue #7.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 080 – Action Comics #1000, Crisis on Infinite Earths #1, and Free Comic Book Day 2018

It’s a major milestone for the Man of Steel as we read the newly released Action Comics #1000, filled with stories honoring Superman as well as Brian Michael Bendis’ first story after his move from Marvel to DC.

And since we’re reading something so modern, we figured we’d take a look at various offerings from this year’s Free Comic Book Day.

AND on top of all that we’re starting our deep dive into the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths by reading the first issue. That’s a lot of stuff!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 060 – Spider-Man & the Sinister Six

somfrc060

It’s a tale as old as time. Or the 60’s, really.

Spider-Man’s villains all team up to fight him. They call themselves the Sinister Six because it sounds cool (alliteration is ALWAYS cool). Then they have a million reunions because Spider-Man’s not dead yet and why not?

We read the first two incarnations of the Sinister Six in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 and then in issues #334-339.

Come for the rogues’ gallery, stay for Aunt May and Doc Ock flirting.

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.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 016 – Spider-Man and the Origin of the Hobgoblin

somfrc016

The majority of Spider-Man’s most memorable villains have been around since the early days when he was still under the care of Stan Lee, but one of the few mainstays he didn’t create was the Hobgoblin.

In this episode, we take a look at Roger Stern’s run with Spidey to see what makes Ol’ Hobby so much more special than just the Green Goblin with a new paint job.

We also get to witness Peter “THE ANIMAL” Parker in his most ridiculous wardrobe ever.
