Jeremy and Jesse record at the Alchemy Lab in Merced while reviewing Cable & X-Force! Was this an update to a defining book, or was it more of a Liefeld rehash? And how do you confuse the sex of a cat?!
The gang reads the first volume of Jean Grey! Did this timelost X-Man headline a great new series or should it have been a one-shot? And wait until you hear the story of a man that stole a truck for good.
The guys sit down with IDW's Optimus Prime Series! Does it measure up to the Matrix or is it a pile of scrap? And you mean you can drive an upside down Camaro?!
The gang gets together to read the DC/Looney Toon One-Shots! Is this a new synergy of style and story, or a short slide into slag? And what is the weird new swimsuit in Japan?
Steve is out again, but Jeremy and Jesse review the first volume of Image's Monstress! Did this alternative world tale bring their desire for adventure or Advil? And what's this about full-body panties? (Hint: Yes, it's a Japanese thing.)
Jeremy and Jesse go through X-Men Blue Volume 1! Did the young X-Men raise the bar and surpass their older selves or make you wish for the days of firebirds eating suns? And why would you throw a chair off of a tenth-story balcony?
Steve was under the weather, so Jeremy and Jesse review X-Men Gold Volume 1! Is this a good restart for the X-Men? Are they still in the doldrums of an Avengers world? Are those panties on that pillow? Wait... what?
The gang reads Volume on of DC's Rebirth-Era Titans! Will this series sit in a sweet spot they didn't find with the Teen Titans, or is this another mythological let down? And have you ever heard of bikini jewelery?!... Us neither.
We've hit 200 episodes! We decided to see if what's old is new again with DC's The Wild Storm! Did 6 issues build a new world or make someone pine for the 90's? (We know, it's unlikely, but weirder has happened.) And, seriously, so action figures really need THAT accessory!?
The guys read the first volume of Green Lanterns! Does a story of two rookie Lanterns make a buddy cop book, or a samurai cop book? And wait until you hear about a very badly assembled convention...
Since the gang was at San Diego Comic-Con, there wasn't time to go through all of the news from the break and Comic-Con, so we made an extra episode dedicated to just the news that came out of San Diego! SO MANY TRAILERS...
We read DC's comic book revival of Hanna Barbera's Flintstones! Did this series get a worthy new life, or does it need its own Flashpoint? And which anime is becoming a real sport?!
We heard that Sith have cookies, so we read the first volume of Darth Vader by Marvel Comics! Does this new story belong in continuity or in a galaxy far, far away from here? And why do people insist on making James Gunn correct them?
The gang reads Volume 1 of Image Comics' Rat Queens! Did this irreverent series catch a positive review, or was it destined for the mouse trap? And wait until you see the strangest fish delivery EVER!
The gang reads Paper Girls Vol. 1 from Image Comics! Does this Hugo-nominated book stand up to scrutiny? Should you read this Sunday Special or wait for the Cliff Notes? And wait until you hear a
drunken fool in a Starfleet Bridge Crew.
The guys read the 2017 first volume of Invincible Iron Man, the first book starring Riri Williams! Did this new armored hero soar or should she go back to school? Can Riri supplant Tony Stark? And you
won't believe what someone shot out of a flare gun...
The gang had a bit of a hiccup and decided to talk Comic-Con preparation and plans! How do you budget? How do you prep for panels? What is chikan insurance?
Jeremy was invited to host a panel at Whedoncon 2017 with Christos Gage! They go over his history writing in TV and Comics, including his work with Joss Whedon on the comic book continuation of the Buffyverse!
You're saying, "WHERE IN THE F*** HAVE YOU BEEN?!" Between dental emergencies, technical failures, and 3 conventions in 4 weeks, we have been too busy, but Steven and Jeremy summarize 3 weeks of headlines for you!
The guys read IDW's M.A.S.K. series! Did it bring back those childhood feelings or was it indigestion? And wait until you see the dress that's too sexy for a chess tournament. Seriously...
The guys read a 2016 volume of Red Hood and the Outlaws! Does DC's "Dark Trinity" redeem the series name from the days of "Sexpot Starfire", or should the Outlaws be incarcerated? And we play another round of "What Did A Japanese Thief Steal?"
Steve is out, but Jeremy and Jesse review Boom Studios' Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Vol. 1! Did they find childhood inspiration or did this book let their monster grow?!
The gang sits down for the second volume of the 2016 run of Doctor Strange! Did the Last Days of Magic have a good ending or an enema? And why was the Green Ranger thrown out of a movie premiere?
Batman & the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. When you say the crossover's name, it sounds ludicrous, bit can it be ludicrously fun? Can an unlikely cross-company-crossover bring heart and laughs? And what has a Japanese man stolen this time?
The guys read the 2017 crossover event Inhumans vs. X-Men! Was this a real game changer, or another Civil War II? Do the X-Men deserve their place in the Marvel Universe? And how HARDCORE is Charlize Theron?!
