We're getting into April and we had the idea that we would read some... not great comics this month. Because April Fools Day or something. It's gonna be the worst tradition ever.
We're starting with Fear Itself, a Marvel event from 2011 which is basically Thor vs a snake. We have issues with it.
We then continue our read of the Korvac Ultron Saga with Avengers #171.
Next Time: All Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder #1-6 by Frank Miller & Jim Lee
For today's episode, we're entering one of the most lore-heavy comic book universes out there... a world we've never delved into before... Sonic the Hedgehog.
We're specifically reading the Endgame storyline from issues #47-50 in the original Archie Comics run so that we can get a nice little taste of everything the universe has to offer. It's a lot.
We then continue our read of the Korvac Saga with Avengers #170, in which it doesn't feel like the Korvac Saga has really started yet because we're busy dealing with Ultron.
Next Time: Fear Itself by Matt Fraction & Stuart Immonen
In this week's episode, we check out the origin of Batman's famous sidekick, Dick Grayson aka the first Robin!
Wait, I thought we were reading the 2nd half of Batman: Dark Victory... this episode was supposed to be issues 7-13. We were gonna find out who the Hangman Holiday killer was and how it relates to Batman, Two-Face, and all the Gotham mob families.
Oh, that all happens too, I see.
We also continue the Korvac Saga with Avengers #168 in which Captain America acts like a major asshole.
Next Time: Sonic the Hedgehog: Endgame (Sonic (1993) #47-50) + The Korvac Saga #4 (Avengers #170)
