Jon’s weekend got jacked. A bunch of stuff came up that kept him from doing his required reading. He knew based on tweets that Charlie was going to be talking about Flash #50 and the end of Flash War. So Jon, who was behind on Flash made a point to read the previous 4 Flash issues as well as #50 to have an intelligent conversation with Charlie about the book. He even got to read a couple other books. But that’s it. With close to 20 books in Jon’s pile he read 7, and 5 of them were from one title. *Sigh*
So this week Jon breaks out a couple new books for us. Superman #1 from Brian Michael Bendis and Ivan Reis. He also looks at the new Amazing Spider-Man #1 from Nick Spencer and Ryan Ottley. While Charlie on the other hand, working to fill the gap, talks about the afore mentioned Flash #50, X-Men: Grand Design #1, and Archie #32.
All that and we still come up an issue short but long on time,… how’s that work?!?
Charlie this week is going deep on Descender from Image Comics telling why his feelings are so strong coming from the bottom of his very soul. He’s also crazy about the Flash War. He relates an amazing story found in the pages of Jughead: The Hunger about werewolves in the Archie universe. And finally, Charlie reads a republished Star Wars story from Dark Horse in what is clearly a cash grab to coincide with the new Solo movie. However, that doesn’t deter Charlie who had a lot of fun with the comedic revisionist history of Tag and Bink Were Here.
Meanwhile Jon is telling us about mostly the same books again. He does get to mix it up just a little with Man of Steel #1, which is a new series about the same character that Jon always talks about. Jon fills us in on whether the wait for Bendis was worth it and whether or not he delivered on this seminal fist issue. Also, Jon follows up on Justice League: No Justice #3, and breaks a little more new ground with Doomsday Clock #5.
