This week we cover The Mighty Thor #394, which unfortunately is a fill-in issue! Roger Stern and Bob Hall take us through the story behind that blockbuster movie you’ve never heard of, “Thor the Avenger” – plus… Hogun is dead! (At least for a few panels, anyway…)
It’s a return to past glories as we time travel back to 1988 to cover The Mighty Thor #392! DeFalco and Frenz bring us the epic battle Thor and the Sandm…er…Sandwom…er Quicksand! Also, a discombobulated Hogun the Grim rampages across New York! Plus a cameo from the Man Without Fear!
This week the guys share strange stories from Twitter, talk about Karl Urban casting in The Boys and discuss the Last Starfighter reboot. Plus the main event the review Ready Player One! So listen to what we have to say then let us know what you thought of Ready Player One. Enjoy!
This week we wrap up Book 2 of Walt Simonson’s excellent “Ragnarok” with issue 12! This issue we see the return of a furry friend, big explosions, a giant lizard thingy with weird hands, and some elf drama! Don’t miss it!
This week we carry on with our coverage of Walt Simonson’s Ragnarok, with issue #10! This time around we have a mountain of Mjolnirs, Walt burns himself at the stake, we learn the secret of Regn’s blade, and there is implied zombie rape… eww. Still, don’t miss it!
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!
It’s a mythology episode, as we cover “Freya’s Unusual Wedding” from Neil Gaiman’s ‘Norse Mythology’ – What happens when Mjolnir is kidnapped by the giant Thrym, who demands Freya’s hand in marriage as ransom? Let’s just say it’s not just a crying game….
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?
