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!
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!
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!
The spotlight is on Dark Days: The Forge and it has Jim and Eric pretty pumped. Eric will be more pumped if he gets a definitive origin of Hawkman when all is said and done and Jim is just ready for a classic good time. See what they have to say and if you like it, check out their regular weekly podcast as well as check out their Patreon account for more fun and nonsense!
This week, it’s Mighty Thor #2, courtesy of Aaron and Dauterman! Thor defends Alfheim from Roxxon and Malekith’s evil army, while Heimdal gets thrown in jail, and Loki tries to prove himself to King Laufey, despite his face pubes! Plus I have a few basic thoughts on Wonder Woman (no spoilers)! Nuff said!
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 and Eric talk about Wonder Woman Annual #1 because…well, because it’s Wonder Woman! If you like what you hear, check out our regular weekly podcast where we talk about all the other DC Comics that came out this week.
Over the weekend the guys discussed several new comics before heading to the movies for the 20th Anniversary 4K restoration of The Fifth Element. Join them as they talk and rank this week’s books. Thanks for listening!
The guys continue their discussion of DC’s crossover event “The Button”, talk more comics, and touch on a bit news released. Trevitt is back to discuss Jean Grey #1 with Allen and Ryan as well. Thanks for listening!
We continue our coverage this week of Hercules Unbound with issue #2! Hercules and Kevin face off against Cerebus! No, not the aardvark. The less interesting character with the blue dogs. This issue contains cruelty to animals, a bad British stereotype, Hercules mixing up his mythologies, and more! Don’t miss it!
This week we look at a fun one & done issue of Journey Into Mystery! This story features Thor nudity, tree murder, two big dogs, two small dwarves, the Warriors Three, headliner Sif in a much reduced role, but you get to see Volstagg in a pink fuzzy onsie! Face front, effendi!
