This week, it’s hammer time, as we bang away at issue 12 of the Mighty Thor, which reveals…. the secret origin of Mjolnir! There are dwarves galore, Odin dickery, “I got a rock!” and to claw it all back on topic, The God Storm! This… is not… a drill!
Guess who’s back? Hope Summers and this time everyone’s looking for her. We dive into the Avengers vs. X-Men tie-in and leave not getting our money’s worth. Marvel sure did know how to rake in extra cheddar. Thanks for listening!

Michael and Derek are back at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find for the first of two July on-location episodes. They visit the shop on Independence Day, and they use the occasion to discuss current trends and titles in the comics industry. Mike explores recent manifestations of The Avengers and Justice League, focusing on Marvel and DC through what he calls the “classic Coke” approach. His discussion takes him across the writings of Jason Aaron and Scott Snyder, and then circling back to Tom King’s current work on Batman and the recent marriage event. Looking at the non-mainstream side of comics, Derek talks about his reaction to the first two issues of Evan Dorkin and Veronica Fish’s Blackwood and the initial offering of Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer, part of Titan Comics’ Hard Case Crime series. He also brings up Naoki Urasawa’s 20th Century Boys and the recent announcement of new Perfect Editions from VIZ Media. And, it being July 4th, the Two Guys also discuss comics, politics, and the current state of the country.
