April is nearly upon us, and that means we're about to hit our favorite holiday, April Fools Day, when the world famously decides to all read bad comics together.

For our first bad comic this season, we're reading Secret Invasion, the 2008 Marvel event by Brian Michael Bendis and Leinil Francis Yu. Which heroes are really Skrulls? Does it matter? Is this comic as bad as we remember?

After answering those questions, we continue our long read of Knightfall with Chapter 9 in Batman #496.

Next Time: All-Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder Pt. 2 (Issues #7-10)

It's been a long time since we read any Alex Ross but today we decided to take a look at his newest book, Fantastic Four: Full Circle, a story exploring some of the FF's past with the Negative Zone.

Alex Ross abandons his painterly for something a little different, and he also wrote this book too!

Then we continue our long read of Batman: Knightfall with Chapter 8 in Detective Comics 662, a story that focuses on The Riddler while Batman hangs out with a monkey.

Next Time: Secret Invasion #1-8

Mar 1, 2023

It's our 200th episode!

And we're celebrating by reading an unfinished comic that can't be purchased anywhere, Alan Moore's 1963 -- A 6-issue Image comic from 1993 that is one big homage to the silver age of comics, with art from frequent Moore collaborators Rick Veitch, Steve Bissette, and Dave Gibbons. 

We meet a bunch of brand new heroes who miiiiight tie back into the present day somehow.

Then we move onto Chapter 7 of Knightfall with Batman #495 where Poison Ivy tries to kiss a bunch of rich people!

Next Time: Fantastic Four: Full Circle by Alex Ross
