Some of My Friends Read Comics 171 – Captain America: Red Menace, Vol. 1 + The Life & Times of Scrooge McDuck #12 (Finale)

It’s been quite a while since we caught up with Ed Brubaker’s run on Captain America. Last time around we discovered that the Winter Soldier is Bucky. And this week we read the next part of that run in Captain America #15-17 and then the Captain America 65th Anniversary Special. There’s a big cool robot in it.

And then it’s finally time for the last chapter of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck where Huey, Dewey, and Louie finally get to meet their great uncle!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 148 – Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Pt. 1 + Amazing Spider-Man #1

We’re starting a couple of classics today from very different eras! First up it’s Ed Brubaker’s Winter Soldier run on Captain America, which provided the basis for the second Captain America film. We’re planning to read the whole thing eventually, but for today we’re just doing the first volume.

Then we’re starting our long-read of the first year of Amazing Spider-Man. That’s right, all the way from the beginning. If it’s any good, maybe we’ll read the next 60 years worth as well.


Next Time: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1-6
