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!
Next Time: Infinity War and Crisis on Infinite Earths #2
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.
Next time: The Tick!
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.
Next Time: Prez (1973) – The story of America’s first teenage president!
THAT WAS A GAME returns to take a look at the 16-bit Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade’s Revenge! This was a 16-bit game where, you guessed it, Spider-Man and the X-Men teamed up. How could they possibly go wrong?
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.
If you’ve ever heard of The Clone Saga before, you probably know that it’s one of the most controversial storylines in Spider-Man’s history, and with good reason.
Originally planned to be a year-long event in the 90’s, it got muddled with so many loose plot threads among different writers that it ended up as a 3-year, 174-issue story that’s generally recognized as a stain on Marvel’s history.
In this week’s episode, the gang takes a look at 2009’s The Real Clone Saga which attempted to distill the story to the key points and tell it in the way it was originally meant to be told. But is it any good? Well we’re obviously not gonna tell you here, listen to the dang episode!!

Remember that time in the 70’s when Godzilla was shrunken down by Ant-Man, fought the Fantastic Four and the Avengers as he grew large again, traveled through time twice, and even had his photo snapped by good ol’ Spider-Man? You don’t?!?! Well it’s true! Not only did Godzilla have his very own 24-issue Marvel comic, but it’s ALL in continuity.
So come join Vince, Chris, and Kia as they relive the finale of this insane series (Godzilla: King of the Monsters #20-24) and see just how our big green dino-friend fit himself into the Marvel Universe.
