This week we cover Thor V2 #29! Jurgens, Kubert & Co present Thor vs The Wrecking Crew, with the life of Hogun the Grim in the balance! Plus, Jagrfelm has a bit of elf trouble, as Malekith the Accused takes “raiding the ice box” to a whole new level 😉
Hey, we’re here this week too! In between episodes of me packing for my upcoming move, we’re looking at Thor v.2 #28, in which our hero and the Warriors Three do some New York City sight-seeing, Sif does some ruling, the Wrecker and his Wrecking Crew hang around in a cheap motel… in costume… and someone offers to “polish Thor’s helmet”…if you know what I mean… Don’t miss it!
It’s Epsiode 282 Redux, as we recover from the Great HD Crash of ’17! In this episode we cover The Mighty Thor (v.2) #27, as Jurgens, Larsen, and Janson give us the second half of the Absorbing Man story! It’s a slug fest in a crumbling tenement with Jane Foster and Titania’s lives in the balance!
Jim and Eric get together to talk some comics, but with the current state of DC Comics, they wonder if they are burned out. That doesn’t stop them from talking for over 7 hours about the books, bats in the attic, flea market shopping and other things… Enjoy!
Jim, Eric, Reggie and the GFC get together to discuss Kite Man’s origin, Superman’s love of the U.S.A. and so much more. Hear what Jim’s favorite color pants are and maybe even an alt-version of Forest Gump…Hell Yea!

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!
