Join the Freaks and COMIC COHORT Michael Bailey as they munch popcorn and Combos and talk all the way through ULTIMATE AVENGERS with their mouth’s full! Six years before Joss Whedon’s little sleeper film there was a cartoony smash ’em up with many of the same elements and the Freaks figured, “What the hell, let’s jump on the bandwagon!” Seeing how Chris had to read 13 GODDAM COMICS in the Ultimates series, we might as well make him watch the movie, too! And guess what? – INTERDIMENSIONAL NAZIS!
Can a wifebeater like Hank Pym be redeemed in the eyes of the Weiners? Tim Seely (who Weed has a bit of a man crush on) gives a shot with, writing and drawing his new mini series “Antman and Wasp”.
Steege checks out Lucid #2 (Archaia Studio), stealing it off John’s pile! Weed then talks a bit about Secret Six (DC) and the new Dungeons and Dragons series from IDW.
Star Wars has taken over a lot of Bo’s reading recently, as he shares Star Wars Knight Errant (Dark Horse) with the group, and kicks off his new monthly “Bitchin’ Bo Fiction” segment with Birds of Prey (DC). John gets in a few words about Thunder Agents (DC) and there is a short discussion about the confusion John is having with the new pricing system by DC/Marvel.
