This week we’re looking at the penultimate Journey Into Mystery issue, number 654, featuring Sif, Beta Ray Bill, a ship/woman mashup, and a very Stephen Bissette-ish Gaea, not to mention some really Schitti art (which means it’s a lot better than it sounds!)
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!
This week we have a look at the final chapter of our Pluto story in The Mighty Thor #201! This time around we meet Heimdal’s dwarven slave, Hogun loses his helmet, Pluto murders a tree, Odin comes back to life, and Ego Prime comes to Earh! A lot going on here, so don’t miss it!

We interrupt your ongoing Pluto story for the end of the world! In this “5 Away From An Anniversary” episode, we cover an anniversary issue! Well, sort of… we cover The Mighty Thor #200! Yes, it’s an inventory tale… Yes, it’s a version of Ragnarok… but which version? Come listen, and find out!
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!
This week we have a look at the final chapter in our current storyline, as we cover The Mighty Thor #198! Odin is dead! Or is he? Thor fights the Mangog! Volstagg plays water-boy! Hogun finds an interesting way to use his mace, and Sif runs into someone with a very large head! Face front, true believers!
