We ruminate a little bit on Jean Grey’s complete lack of empathy, concern for privacy , or ethics in the outing of her friend Bobby Drake. Eventually we get into some Marvels for the week and start with SPIDER WOMAN4. Jess hangs out with some Fabio’ed out Namor and that’s entertaining; SHE HULK 12 ends with Dr Druid and some final revelations on the blue case file. Ms Marve 11 and 12 has young hot Loki heading down to the neglected Jersey City to spike punch. Kamala has her final confrontation with the Inventor. SQUIRREL GIRL 2 has Doreen reminding TechJedi of Moss from IT CROWD, while Tippy-Toe determines Galactus is coming. THOR 5show us one pissy little Odin and one bad ass Titania, who shows us a different side of herself. CAPTAIN AMERICA 4 appeals to us with a Zemo story and flashbacks revealing more of Sam’s character. CAPTAIN MARVEL 12 shows me some neat physics in the Endless Envelope, as Cap runs off to find Tic. In SILVER SURFER 9 Galactus appears as Dawn demands the full poop from Norrin. SUPERIOR IRON MAN 5 details the stroy of the Black Lama. THOR ANNUAL gives us 3 fun stories about NuThor integrating into Asgard. Very Entertaining.

It’s the final battle in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 14 and 15, and so much happens it’s not even pointful to put it here. Lemme tell ya HAWKEYE 22 is pretty much just Home Alone in NYC. STAR WARS 2 shows us the kinda spanking we’d really expect if an untrained Luke really went against his pa. DARTH VADER 1 is a return to Sith-like form as Vader plots behind the Emperors back, even as he eats shit for the Death Star. RETURN OF THE LIVING DEADPOOL is a zombie apocalypse of deadpools. yay. SILK 1 is a pretty good opener as Cyndi not only fights a new villain but pitches a Silk investigation to JJJ. ALL NEW X-MEN 36, 27, 38 ends the episode with way too many issues at once-Castle Doom blows up, a new character appears, Emma trains Jean, and there’s a Guardians team up.

Before we start DC Week we ramble for a little while, noting the Great Comics Re-Org of 2015; lamenting how few DC we feel are quality. We toast Herb Trimpe. Our Shitty Movie Of The Week is VIKINGDOM. Finally we get to books with DETECTIVE 39, Bats facing off Bullock while the city burns, and really, can we have a few villains without cults, for once? WONDER WOMAN 39 is next, giving us the no killing shtick again and Hippolyta the Jedi-and we debate her rage and warrior attitude. SINESTRO 10 brings us the continuing fight raging on Warworld, when the Corps arrives with a surprise. BATMAN 39 surprises us with the Batman negotiating with The Court of Owls. Alfred faces down a crisis. HARLEY QUINN VALENTINES SPECIAL humors us and gives us some fun as she chases Bruce Wayne. SUPERMAN 38 concludes the Ulysses line with BIG FIGHTING and new powers for Clark. BATGIRL 39 gives us the idea that Batgirl has a bounty on her, falls into a trap, and Dinah rescues her. AMERICAN VAMPIRE 6 Apes have gone to space and come back vampires. Nuff SAID. ASTRO CITY 20 concludes the episode with emotional rollercoasterism and screwed over nice guys. Crackerjack goes to find the Black Lab.

Tonight we bring you the January Indies, starting with Garth Ennis’ WAR STORIES 4, focusing on the tankers of the Yom Kippur War of 1973. He comes across with typical Ennis setup-intriguing, but a lot of exposition. ODY-C 2 is next, a strange little book that explains the loss of the Y chromo in pre pre history. Fraction lovers, among which we are ourselves, will not like us this ep. We swing into the unrelentingly grim, if quality MEN OF WRATH 4-a fine example of Southern Misery. HELLBOY 1952 pleases us despite Hellboy himself not yet having anything to contribute to the mission. Crime comes back to the show with THE FADE OUT 4-explicit photographers, dates that aren’t dates but are; with special guest stars Clark Gable and Ronnie Reagan. UBER 21 shows us the fall of Sieglinde and Katyusha’s ascendency; HOLMES vs HOUDINI 3 has contention between the two and apparent suicides, explosion, and wounded wives. Revival 27 has Dana in dire straights. BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA 8 has Pete getting hit by motorcycle, and trips to HELL! We clean up with BITCH PLANET 2. Sports, vague assurances of history and cliched bloodgames. This is a world with no backstory, a world not really built, and a world constructed completely to hammer home points alone, with a lack of subtlety that is staggering for an otherwise talented writer.

We spend a very long time talking about Cho and Rodriguez. Then Drinking. Then thinking up a motto. Eventually we jump to Marvels and just can’t deal with BUCKY BARNES 3 and 4. Overwrought, over complicated, confusing, and dumb. We like CAPTAIN MARVEL 11 is a Christmas issue so I love that. SHIELD 2 makes me smile with Kamala trolling superhero websites and memorizing B villain weapons.  We get to SILVER SURFER 8 reveals a planet of Galactus survivors. Continuing on with Slott we check out AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 12+13 with Victorian spider eating people. THOR 4 develops all arguments really well; with Original Recipe Thor conceding the title. UNCANNY X-MEN 30 probably ruins the continuum by talking to Charles be cause she just soooo moral and superior and ethical and smart. CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 brings us a better Cap replacement book than Remender wrote with actual Cap…Visit Spider Woman 3 with concubine Jess and spider poop that irritates us. PIRATE CONCUBINE JESS captures her though. We sorta come to terms with SUPERIOR IRON MAN 4; with Tony kinda dominating DD, but Matt still coming ahead morally. We end with UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL 1. I dig it a lot so far. We finish off with STAR WARS 1!! ZOMG!!11

We talk some bad Bat villains for a little bit; mention Supergirl’s debut photo. We finally get to some Marvels with THOR 3 with Malekith backstory, good dialog, Jotuns trying to eat Thor, and more. TV SHIELD 1, which was fun Waid stuff. CAP AND THE MIGHTY AVENGERS 3, The inverted Avengers and the good Avengers throw down, with Spidey breaking it up. HAWKEYE DEADPOOL 3 having Kate and Wilson teaming up to fight a mind controlled Clint; SHE HULK 11, with guests Titania and Volcana, which was neat to see after all these years; SUPERIOR IRON MAN 3 brings us TEEN ABOMINATION(eww) wanting extremis 3, and matt having a nice moment. UNCANNY XMEN 29 has ILLYANA catching Dr Strange and Clea in bed, and that’s all you need. MS MARVEL 10 Kamala argues with volunteer duracells, and THAT’s all you need. CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 give us some good Sam backstory, which is tainted with the bad father routine, before Zemo has Crossbones attack; CAPTAIN MARVEL 10 seems to be a pleasant pallette cleanser as Carol gets letters from home. BLACK WIDOW 13 ramps things up a bit, with Nat hunting down accountants? whaaaa! ALL NEW XMEN 34 MILES and DISCOUNT JEAN JR meet the ultimate xmen, while bobby fights mole men amusingly. SPIDEY ANNUAL 1 has an amusing but not unheard of PETE IS LATE OH NO routine.  AMAZING SPIDER MAN 11 brings in 60s cartoon spidey, and now you can die happy. SPIDER WOMAN 2 Jess lands in a world where she’s some kind of ruler, so she takes it in stride and takes charge.

We talk for a little bit about nothing significant at all, and then launch into the December Indies. We start with RAGNAROK 3 and zombie Thor amuses me. THE HUMANS 2 is even worse. MANIFEST DESTINY 11 has giant mosquitos being extracted from people’s backs. WYTCHES 3 is flashback city; EXTINCTION PARADE WAR 5 has vampires literally playing soldier, much to our chagrin. BITCH PLANET 1 promises a lot but is gonna take time to build worlds. REVIVAL 36 has more convoluted weirdness than you can shake a shmoo at. HELLBOY 1952 1 Gives us the first real missions for our hero. MEN OF WRATH 3 has a shootout in a church and executions. UBER 20 continues an uninterrupted runs of sheer awesome and adds a sort of body horror. OUTCAST 6 the boys visit an old lady and the pastor is assaulted. WAR STORIES 3 completes the arc with a high cost mission and a happy ending. AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE 7 has Betty’s diary, thanksgiving in the woods, incest, and fratricide. This concludes episode 97, and we were happy to bring it to you on the SIXTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SHOW!
