Episode 74: What’s beer?

November 18, 2022

(Lord it's hard not to be happy when you're not) reading comics! Will's got Strange Academy vol 3, where the mysteries start to entwine, and Fantastic Four by Dan Slott vol 10: The Reckoning War Part 1, where things start to absolutely pop off. Steve? Steve's got a lot of Cable. Cable vol 2 #71, Cable Annual 1999, and Cable & Wolverine: Guts & Glory.

Sorry for the numbering snafu: this is episode 74, and was recorded before the last episode we published, #75. I don't know, man.

Our spectacular 75th episode, and we got to record in person! If you got to have any superpower, what would you choose? Also, Will reads an insane new take on Hulk in Hulk by Donny Cates vol 1: Smashtronaut!, a new chapter for Elektra in Daredevil: Woman Without Fear, and an Asgardian detour in Thor by Donny Cates vol 4: God of Hammers. Steve chokes his way through the Dawn of M-Tech Saga (Uncanny X-Men vol 1 #371, X-Men vol 2 #91, and X-Men Annual 1999), Wolverine vol 2 #141-144, and Incredible Hulk vol 3 #8. Apologies for the drop in audio quality toward the end — we decided to cut Steve's segment on Generation X due to the audio, and he'll summarize what you missed next time he reads that title!
