Some of My Friends Read Comics 108 – Animal Man: The Hunt + All-Star Superman #5

somfrc108

Animal Man has never exactly been one of DC’s biggest heroes, but he got a reboot in 2011 for the New 52 written by Jeff Lemire with some gruesome, horrific art by Travel Foreman.

We read the first volume which saw him re-discover his origin, find out that his daughter can turn human arms into chicken arms, and start making his way toward the Swamp Thing.

And then in All Star Superman #5, Clark Kent interview Lex Luthor in prison!

The television adaptation of Preacher just started its 2nd season, so we decided to read the first couple of stories from the classic Vertigo comic.

But does it hold up? Or is it yet another gore-fest from writer Garth Ennis?

Special guest Rob Robinson joins us to talk about angels, demons, aliens, vampires and arse-faces as we read issues 1-7 of Preacher.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 045 – Swamp Thing by Alan Moore

It’s been way too long since we read some Alan Moore, so it’s time to remedy that with his run on Swamp Thing from the early 80’s.

It’s dark, twisted stuff that turned the concept of Swamp Thing on its head and reinvigorated the franchise and influenced to many other comics to this day.

And that terrific horrific art by Stephen Bissette…. treat yourself.
