Weekly Pull Highlights Age of X-Man Omega #1 Uncanny Xmen #22 Loki #1 Hot Shots #5 Unstoppable Wasp #10 Superman Pal Jimmy Olsen #1 Assassin Nation #5 Sonata #2 Sera and the Royal Stars #1 Vampirella #1   To endings and new beginnings! We cover everything from our apprehension of the X-Men's future (Age of X-Man & Uncanny X-Men), to the need for levity in comics (Unstoppable Wasp), to how much modern voicing can be ANNOYING in an old-timey book (Sera & the Royal Stars). Oh, and Vampirella wears basically nothing. Enjoy! 
Episode 35 - Wolverine's Hair, Comic Cover Conspiracies, Derek's Cans
Weekly Pull Highlights Invisible Woman #1 Venom #16 Wolverine Vs. Blade Special #1 War of Realms Omega #1 Black Cat #2 Naomi #6 Event Leviathan #2 Unearth #1 Reaver #1 Ghosted In LA #1 Second Coming #1 What's new, listeners! Well, for us, it's a bunch of number one's across the board, from the one-shot Wolverine's Hair Vs. Blade #1, to the much anticipated (and unsurprisingly controversial) release of Second Coming #1. But hey, if you're not asking yourself "WHO'S LEVIATHAN," are you really even reading comics? (I mean, we hope you are, otherwise, we're really surprised your here!)

Weekly Pull Highlights: Heroes in Crisis #3, Ironheart #1, Maneaters #3, Dead Man Logan #1, Uncanny X-Men #3 and Hex Wives #2 This week we discuss the saga of Old Man Logan, debate if George Lucas should be allowed to touch more Star Wars movies, talk about the success of Rebellion, and more! We end with part one of our Holiday Gift Guide, starting the series off with gift ideas for the Marvel fan in your life!
Reel Extra: Shazam  Welcome to our first edition of REEL EXTRA, where we discuss the big recent movie release. This edition is all about Captain Marvel SHAZAM! [SPOILER WARNING]

Weekly Pull Highlights Firefly: Bad Company  Spider-Man Life Story #1 Invisible Kingdom #1 Lazarus Risen #1 Dark Red #1   More new number ones flood in this week, and we go on to discuss CEO scandals, media acquisitions, creator-driven comics and more! We end this episode discussing our Key Issues with toxic fandom and the ripples Nerd-Rage can cause. 
Episode 17 - Silly Seals, Caviar and Brandy, Captain Marvel
Weekly Pull Highlights Ronin Island #1 Morning in America #1 Female Furies #2 Black Order #5 Ziggy Pig and Silly Seal #1 Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History #1 Darth Vader: Dark Visions #1 My Goodness, there sure is a lot of comics and news topics to discuss this week. Good thing we laid out our time properly to give each item the appropriate amount of discussion time. ....oh, whoops... Rushed overly complicated schedule aside, we cap off this episode with our review of Captain Marvel COMPLETELY SPOILER FREE!
Episode 7 - Ben Grimm's Nuptials, Deadly Class, Aquaman
Weekly Pull Highlights Fantastic Four #5 Maneaters #4 Slow week coming out of the holiday, as we discuss the very VERY few books available on the shelves. We continue by giving our thoughts on two staples of entertainment (Video Games and Theme Parks), and we close with reviews of the Deadly Class pilot and a little movie called "Aquaman." It's an odd, short episode. We're probably still a bit buzzed on eggnog. 
Episode 15 - Bitterer Roots, Storyteller, Comics for Stephen King Fans
Weekly Pull Highlights High Level #1 Sharkey the Bounty Hunter #1 Wild Storm #20 Miles Morales Spider-Man #3 Shuri #5 Unstoppable Wasp #4 Hey, did you know comics are sometimes made into movies or television shows? Well if you didn't you, you will after this episode. Stay to the end for a new segment, the Secret Shortbox, wherein we discuss what comics are great for fans of different authors. For our first Secret Shortbox, we talk about the little known writer named Stephen King. You may want to look up some of his stuff before hand. 
Episode 22 - Rat Queens Kickin' Ass, Hawkeye Show, Secret Shortbox: James Patterson
Weekly Pull Highlights Symbiote Spider-Man #1 War of Realms: Journey Into Mystery #1 Detective Comics #1001 Wonder Twins #3 Infinite Dark #5 Rat Queens: Swamp Romp Faithless #1   This week we discuss tons of comics (probably too many, sorry wallet) and dish out some stellar news about release dates for some sweet-ass comics and shows coming up. We close talking about what comics James Patterson might read if he had a secret comic collection stowed away under his writing desk.
Reel Extra - Avengers: Endgame Holy crap, Endgame.... Not much to say here. Enjoy our review. Spoilers at 21:46
Episode 28 - Thori the Good Boy, Joker Babysits, Star Wars Squealing
Weekly Pull Highlights War of the Realms Strikeforce: Land of Giants #1 War of the Realms Journey into Mystery #3 Detective Comics #1004 Assassin Nation #3   After EVEN MORE War of the Realms (are you sick of it yet?), it's all kind of Batman talk as we debate the potential awesomeness (or blandness) of the Arkham Knight's origin and the sudden, and marginally incomplete, departure of Tom King from the current Batman run. 
Episode 42 - Spider-Man's Dead, the Anatomy of Monsters, Who is the ACTUAL DC Villain?
Weekly Pull Highlights House of X #3 Spider-Man: Life Story #6 Marvel Comics #1000 Runaways #24 Marvel Monsters #1 Thor #16 Batman/Superman #1 Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chosen Ones #1 Mountainhead #1   From hurricane preparations, to the D23 Conference (She-Hulk!!), to the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Trailer, we cover all the big talking points from the week. Comics this week were heavy on the Marvel-side with lots of middle issue melodrama, and another DC title all about villains without actually telling us who's the Year of the Villain is all about! 
Episode 46 - Ghost Rider No More, Creature Features, Bringing Whoopie Back
Weekly Pull Highlights Powers of X #5 Strikeforce #1 New Mutants: War Children #1 Harleen #1 SFSX #1 The Plot #1 Not a ton of books, but a whole lot to say! From the implications of a murder at the end of Strikeforce #1, to the effects of Harley Quinn's past on her relationship with the Joker, to the revolution of sex workers in Safe Sex #1, we're hitting the hard comic book issues you need to hear about. Oh, and no Ghost Rider show, which sucks. Listen now! 
Episode 45 - Apex Flex, Space Werewuffs, Goldballs Comes Out On Top
Weekly Pull Highlights House of X #5 Spider-Man #1 Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda #1 Inferior Five #1 Superman #15 Year of the Villain: Lex Luthor #1 Flash Forward #1 Archie '55 #1 You Are Obsolete #1 Rick and Morty vs Dungeons and Dragons II: Painscape  #1  (Pssst... spoilers for House of X from 4:55 to 17:05!) What would it be like to play Dungeons and Dragons with Sofía Vergara? Why don't we have a wrestler named Apex Flex? Why was Superman just a 15 issue advertisement for the Legion of Super-Heroes? Why does Tee have such a hard time processing space lycanthropy? We ask these questions and more in this week's episode!   
Reel Extra: Spider-Man: Far from Home Our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man is back again for another installment of romance, intrigue, deception... and the best after-credits stingers EVER! Join us as we give our reviews, both non-spoiler friendly and SUPER spoiler-y!

Finally, we cover our feelings toward Punisher Season Two, or the worlds first streamable Valium! Also, Chris makes terrible impressions! It's just awful, really. 
Episode 5 - Avengers Endgame, Zoe Quinn is a Badass, Indie Gift Guide
Weekly Pull Highlights Batman Annual #3 Batman Damned #2 Batman Who Laughs #1 Goddess Mode #1 These Savage Shores #2 Superman #6 This week we dare to ask bold questions: Who the heck is this Superboy? How is the next Avengers movie going to wrap everything up? What is Alan Moore up to these days? Why does DC care so much about Bruce Wayne's anatomy? We top this episode off with our Indie Gift Guide for any comic fans or aren't all about that Marvel/DC life.
Come share a meal with us as we discuss the Hellboy reboot starring David Harbour, Daniel Dae Kim, and Sasha Lane! We'll be discussing the use of horror in action films, the changes between this series and the Guillermo del Toro series, and how delicious Cool Ranch Doritos tacos are. {SPOILER WARNING}
Episode 14 - Thunder Lust, Bat-ward Cullen, Horrible Couples
Weekly Pull Highlights Wonder Twins #1 Justice League Dark #8 Avengers No Road Home #1 Magic Order #6   Movie and TV news abound this episode, as a week of Ho-Hum comics is rescued by a week of casting and cancellation buzz. Then, we discuss the best examples of the worst superhero couples. Which super people should not be tangling capes? Find out here!
Episode 10 - Plagiarism and you, Far From Home, Key Issues: Events
Weekly Pull Highlights Uncanny X-Men #10 Invaders #1 Black Widow #1 Justice League Dark #7 Middlewest #3   Whether they're Far From Home, stealing someone's intellectual property, getting cancelled by EA, or coming back from the dead, you'll hear about it first (more likely last) from us! This we we introduce a new segment called Key Issues where we whine about stuff to unwind all that built up millennial angst. We're laying out the issues we have about events and crossovers in DC and Marvel and how they just tend to fall flat.
Episode 47 - The Red King, The Morrigan, and a Ton of Vampires
Weekly Pull Highlights Contagion #1 Ghost Rider #1 House of X #6 Bizarre Adventures #1 She Said Destroy #5 Dark Ark: After the Flood #1 Nomen Omen #1 Vampire State Building #1 Ruby Falls #1 Maneaters #12 Archie Halloween Special #1 Halloween is starting early with a bunch of horror books featuring a plethora of baddies, ranging from evil fairies, to weirdly-drawn vampires, to the patriarchy. But our most pressing fear has been quelled - for now - thanks to Spider-Man being back in the MCU! 
Episode 52 - The Value of Miniseries, Deadpool of Clay, Being Ungrateful
Weekly Pull Highlights Olympia #1 The Question: the Deaths of Vic Sage #1 Captain Marvel #12 Deadpool #1 Ready to feel sentimental? Preparing for Thanksgiving, we dive headfirst into the sweet and funny Olympia, by father/son duo Curt & Tony Pires. But with family gatherings come (un)friendly debates, so we wade into the morally ambiguous new Black Label title, "The Question: the Deaths of Vic Sage." Finally, just like your favorite holiday recipe, we cover the enjoyable, if not exactly what you were expecting, new run of Deadpool by Kelly Thompson. Happy Turkey Day! 
Reel Extra: Joker The super-dark, super-acclaimed, super-controversial Joker movie is now in theaters, and we wanted to give our review of the good, the weird, and the refrigerator. Definitely wasn't what we expected, but we'll give you both the non-spoiler and definitely-spoiler opinions in this episode!  
Episode 48 - X-Men Brady Bunch, The Mask is Back, Heavy Sighing
Weekly Pull Highlights X-Men #1 Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda #2 Crazy #1 Captain Marvel #11 Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Knightfall #1 Strayed #3 The Mask: I Pledge Allegiance to the Mask #1 Archie & Sabrina #708 The Marked #1 Now back to our regularly scheduled programming! This week Chris covers all sorts of new titles, including the return of 'The Mask' and the much-anticipated X-Men #1.
