This week we’re back to the start of the millennium with Thor v2 #26! The Absorbing Man is back! And he needs a doctor! Sif has *really* long fingers, Odin falls alseep again, Keith Kinkaid comes back long enough to be smacked in the face with a ball & chain! RFA! It’s what the doctor ordered!
Jim and Eric turn that spotlight on the big book of the week…Dark Days: The Casting. It’s a dense book that bothered Eric a little more than Jim and it’s up to you to pick who is right. It’s the fight of the century! Actually, it’s just a lot of talk and a little nonsense, but in the end, one thing is true…Eric said Duke would be “The Signal”.
This week we finish the first story arc of the current Mighty Thor series with issue #5! It’s Thor vs. Odin, mostly in the background, with a lot of other stuff going on! Malekith gets married! Freyja gets stabbed! The Warriors Three get ignored! Nuff said, True Believers!
It’s a mythology show this week, as we cover two tales from Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of the Norse Myths, “Mimir’s Head and Odin’s Eye” and “The Treasures of the Gods” – We’ve heard the tales before, but not quite like this, so check em out!
Host Anthony Desiato continues his journey to comic book stores around the country with a visit to Packrat Comics in Hilliard, OH. Packrat made industry news in early 2017 with a viral photo highlighting the problem of delinquent customers. Anthony welcomes owners Teresa and Jamie Colegrove to discuss the inspiration for (and reaction to) that photo, overcoming early struggles and staying positive, winning an Eisner Award, and much more. Making it a true double-date episode, Anthony’s wife, Stephanie, also joins in on the fun.
This week we look at Mighty Thor #3! Girl Thor faces off against Lady Loki in the general vicinity of a building with a very female shape! Freyja faces trial! Alfheim gets bombed! The crowd of Lokis goes wild! Co-starring Tom Hiddleston as Loki McPubeface. Nuff said!
Host Anthony Desiato embarks upon a season-long, cross-country journey to explore comic book stores and meet the people behind the counter. In the season premiere, Anthony visits Aw Yeah Comics (locations in Harrison, NY; Skokie, IL; and Muncie, IN) to speak with owner/manager Marc Hammond about launching and maintaining a family of stores, navigating different markets, and cultivating a sense of community for customers and fans.

OK, how about something a little more recent? This week we look at Mighty Thor #1 (2016) – Yes, it’s the continuation of Jane Foster’s adventures as she goes up against a falling satellite, everyone sings “It’s Raining Elves!”, the Avengers show up and then leave, and Loki gets face pubes! Fluff said!
Jim, Eric, Reggie and the Gang get together for Annuals Week and while that means a short podcast for some, that kind of talk doesn’t fly over here at Weird Science! Nope, Annuals Week still gets the WS treatment which means 7+ hours of fun and nonsense…Enjoy!
