Some of My Friends Read Comics 184 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Return to New York + Superman: For All Seasons #2

We’ve got Turtle Fever! The new TMNT game reminded us how great the Ninja Turtles are, so we go back to Eastman and Laird’s original series to read the now classic Return to New York story from issues 19-21. Why is it so classic? There’s a worm-filled Shredder. Nuff said.

We then continue our long-read of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s Superman for All Seasons with issue #2, the Summer issue. It’s hot outside too! How topical!

Next Time – Scalped: Indian Country by Jason Aaron & R.M. Guera

Some of My Friends Read Comics 183 – The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Manga + Superman: For All Seasons #1

A couple years ago we read the Ocarina of Time manga, so we thought we’d revisit the Zelda series with the sequel, Majora’s Mask.

Zelda’s not even in this story and Link might be dead, or maybe dreaming, or maybe he just fell in a big hole. We’re not sure, but we know there are monkeys and that’s cool.

We also start our next long-read: the 4-part Superman for All Seasons by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, in which we get a nice little retelling of Superman’s origin.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 174 – Batman: Dark Victory, Pt. 2 + The Korvac Saga #3 (Avengers #168)

In this week’s episode, we check out the origin of Batman’s famous sidekick, Dick Grayson aka the first Robin!

Wait, I thought we were reading the 2nd half of Batman: Dark Victory… this episode was supposed to be issues 7-13. We were gonna find out who the Hangman Holiday killer was and how it relates to Batman, Two-Face, and all the Gotham mob families.

Oh, that all happens too, I see.

We also continue the Korvac Saga with Avengers #168 in which Captain America acts like a major asshole.

Some of My Friends 173 – Batman: Dark Victory, Pt. 1 + Korvac Saga #2 (Avengers #167)

Remember about 6 years ago when we read Batman: The Long Halloween about a serial killer who strikes on major holidays?

Well it’s time for the sequel, Batman: Dark Victory, which is about a serial killer… who strikes on major holidays. Cool. It’s a 13-issue series, technically 14 since there’s a little prequel issue, but we start off by just reading #0-6.

Then we go onto The Korvac Saga in Avengers #167, which includes a fashion show! Fun!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 014 – Batman: The Long Halloween

somfrc014

Batman embarks on a search for the mysterious “Holiday” Killer who, starting on Halloween, kills mobsters on major holidays until Batman finally catches Holiday a year later…

Wait, a year?!?! Better improve those detective skills, Bruce.

To be fair, he gets distracted by every single member of his rogues gallery and on top of all that he has to watch Harvey Dent go crazy and turn into Two-Face.

Join us as we read The Long Halloween and disagree completely on just about every aspect of this story!
