It's April Fools Day and Chris played one hell of an unintentional prank on us by choosing Not Brand Echh for this week's episode.

We read the first three issues of Stan Lee’s 1967 attempt to make a Marvel comedy magazine and, to be honest, we had a pretty great time ripping this thing to shreds while searching for any jokes.

It also gave us a great chance to talk about a bunch of other funny comics that are actually worth reading! All that and more on today's Bum Of My Bends Bead Bomics!

Who says a podcast has to be good??

Ladies and gentlemen and aliens, tonight's heavyweight qualifier match is coming to you LIVE from the planet Bodace and will determine the fate of our galaxy.

In the red corner, from the planet Krypton, weighing in at 235 lbs, it’s Superman! And in the blue corner, from the planet Earth, weighing in at 236 lbs, Muhammad Ali! (Really Google? Superman weighs less than Ali?)

Michael joins us at ringside to fill in our gaps of sports knowledge as we read Superman vs Muhammad Ali from 1978!

Let’s get ready to ruuuuuummmmble!

Before we recorded our Thanos episode a couple months back, we knew we were gonna eventually head back to outer space to cover the Infinity Guantlet.

But we had so much fun reading Thanos Quest and were so impressed with the writing and art of Jim Starlin that we decided to head back even sooner!

This time we took a look at Adam Warlock, a character that Vince and Kia knew absolutely NOTHING about, other than that he appeared in the background of Guardians of the Galaxy and was eventually gonna be pretty important.

Luckily, Chris is here as usual to clarify exactly what the heck is going on. Join us as we read Strange Tales 178-181 and Warlock 9-11!
