This weeks offering is Walt Simonson’s Ragnarok from IDW – Issue #9…number nine….number nine…. features reversals of fortune for…well, dead people and animals really… Is this a turning point, or merely the quiet before the storm? Plus…. horse/lizard/goat hybrids! Nuff said!
Now that Painting Week is over, we’re heading back in time a few years to cover the second IDW Ragnarok trade starting with issue #7! Thor kills a little girl! There are zombies! Stargates! It’s Simonson! What more do you need??!

This week it’s something a little different, with us looking at Marvel Premiere #26, featuring Hercules! There’s tree murder, Bill Mantlo, George Tuska, and a little one off tale that I’m pretty sure was originally intended as a fill-in issue of The Champions… Still, why not have a listen?
This week we wrap up the Journey Into Mystery series staring Sif with issue #655! Sif and Beta Ray Bill manage to not do very much while it’s up to Ti Asha Ra/Skuttlebutt to save the day! Plus, Gaea gets all monster-y, I make up a word, and more!
It’s Episode 300!! Yay, round numbers! This week we have a look at Journey Into Mystery #653! Beta Ray Bill is back! And things are generally in disarray! Also, I give some brief spoiler free thoughts on The Last Jedi! Nuff said!
It’s our 300th episode! Yes, it says 299 above, but it’s true! This week we celebrate our tricentennial episode by covering Journey Into Mystery #652 featuring The Lady Sif! In this episode, Sif travels with the Earth goddess, Gaea out to the orbit of Jupiter, where they run into an old friend! There’s tree murder, crocodile teeth, and more!
This week it’s our long-awaited review of Thor: Ragnarok!!
What worked for me, what didn’t work? Do we give Taika Waititi the keys to the Golden Realm, or do we drop him off the edge of the Ginnungagap? We also touch on the Justice League in the process and compare/contrast some of the issues common to both films… so I hope you’ll tune in!
Happy Thanksgiving! As you all are stuffing yourself with turkey and giblets, why not listen to our coverage of Thor #199 from 1972? It’s Hela vs. the Greek god of death, Pluto… with Odin’s soul as the prize! Plus, Volstagg gets brave, and Sif, Hildegard, Capt Birdseye, and Tana Nile face… Ego Prime!
While you all are enjoying Thor’s throwdown with the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, we look this week at The Mighty Thor #196 from back in 1972, where the Thunder God faces not one, but TWO big bads, including Kartag the Caretaker and …the Mangog! Guest starring invisible walls, polka-dotted mist, and Captain Birdseye!
