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.

It’s April Fools Day and Chris played one hell of an unintentional prank on us by choosing Not Brand Echh for this week’s episode.

We read the first three issues of Stan Lee’s 1967 attempt to make a Marvel comedy magazine and, to be honest, we had a pretty great time ripping this thing to shreds while searching for any jokes.

It also gave us a great chance to talk about a bunch of other funny comics that are actually worth reading! All that and more on today’s Bum Of My Bends Bead Bomics!

Who says a podcast has to be good??

Join us as we talk about the (first) time Cap faked his own death in Captain America 110, 111, and 113.

After the break, check out some more of Steranko’s amazing art!
