 Welcome listeners to our latest episode, where we review the latest Marvel Studios film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings! In this spoiler-filled episode, we'll discuss the comics that formed the basis for the film, the kung fu films that influenced and shaped it, and how it ties into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plus, there will be the usual nonsense that you've grown accustomed to.Created by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin back in 1973, Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu, was on the leading edge of the martial arts craze. Inspired in large part by the ABC TV show Kung Fu, Englehart and Starlin developed the idea of the noble Shang-Chi, who rebelled against his father, the villainous Fu Manchu, who had trained him to be a living weapon. Premiering in Special Marvel Edition 15, Shang-Chi took over the title and had a long successful run for many years. He would frequently show up in other characters' titles as well, such as Spider-Man and Iron Man. He was always a street-level character, using his martial arts skills to fight bad guys in stories with more of an espionage tone.The film takes the basic idea -an idealistic hero whose father is a criminal overlord - but very little of the comic book background remains. Despite this, it's highly enjoyable. It borrows heavily from Jackie Chan films at the beginning, but then moves on to take more of a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon approach. Much of the movie's strength comes from its characters. Shang-Chi, as portrayed by Simu Liu, is very likeable and has a sort of everyman quality, despite turning out to be a master of kung fu. The actor actually does many of his own stunts and fight scenes. Awkwafina plays Shang-Chi's best friend, Katy, who provides some comic relief as well as a stalwart friend to go on his journey. The ever amazing Michelle Yeoh appears as Shang-Chi's aunt and quite a martial artist herself. And a major surprise to us, Ben Kingsley makes a return appearance as Trevor Slattery, the besotted actor who played the Mandarin in Iron Man 3. He has some of the funniest scenes in the movie, and they don't feel gratuitous or over the top. The titular ten rings, which in the comics were actual rings that the Mandarin wore on his fingers, are arm bands here. These rings can be used in a variety of ways, which is shown by the different ways that Shang-chi and his father use them. His father tends to use them solely for destructive purposes. Shang-Chi is much more creative in how he uses the rings. Certainly the rings give Shang-Chi a power level far beyond what he has had in the comics. Based off the mid-credits scene, they may have a significant history in the MCU.There were a couple of very interesting cameos in the film too. Wong, from the Dr. Strange films, and the Abomination, from 2008's Hulk, are seen battling in the fight club. There are so many questions! It seems like they are working together to make a little moola. How did that happen?Of course, we also saw Bruce Banner and Capt. Marvel. And we do mean Banner, not Professor Hulk. So what happened to him? How did he turn back into Banner? Will we find out in the She-Hulk series on Disney Plus?The film is a story about family, about revenge, and redemption. Like most Marvel films, it is these elements that make it so relatable. The end sets things up for the possibility that Shang-Chi could be fighting against his sister. We will see. In any case, Shang-Chi appears to be ready to take on a bigger role in the MCU as phase 4 moves forward.For our Sensor Sweep, Karen has a big honkin' book to share: the Master of Kung Fu omnibus volume 1. This hardback collection of Shang-Chi stories includes his first appearance from Special Marvel Edition 15 up through Master of Kung Fu 37, and includes Giant-Size Master of Kung Fu 1-4,  Giant-Size Spider-Man 2, and Iron Man Annual 4. This is a great way to get your Shang-Chi fix! You can check for it at your local comic shop, or check out Amazon.We also wanted to "catch up" with everyone. So we shared a little about what we have been doing. Bob had been busy with Godzillafest the last few weeks. He held back to back weekend events in August. You can go to Bayareafilmevents.com and check out the Video section to see what was going on! He also helped out with a turtle rescue by helping set up a turtle shelter in his backyard for a bunch of turtles.Karen plugs her appearance on her friend Billy D's Magazines and Monsters podcast, dropping this September 16th. She and Billy will discuss the classic 50s sci fi film, It! Terror from Beyond Space, thought by many to be one of the main inspirations for Alien. Besides his podcast, Billy also has a blog site, https://magazinesandmonsters.com/,  where he also reviews comics and monster mags. Be sure to check it out!Last but not least, Commander Larry journeyed to SiliCon in San Jose. It was greatly reduced in attendance due to Covid this year, but still entertaining. He also gives a shout out to the Seven Stars Bar and Grill, which is looking for a new location. Finally, Larry has high praise for the new LaLa Land recording of the Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan soundtrack, as well as the Inglorious Treksperts podcast on the soundtrack. So there you have it - a review and a little news from Planet 8!

Alex:                 And on The Stack we talk about a bunch of books that have come out this week. Kicking it off with one I know that Pete is very excited about. Beta Ray Bill number one from Marvel comics, written and art by Daniel Warren Johnson. Now, D.W.J., As I like to call him, he is the creator of Murder Falcon, which is one of your favorite books ever. Pete:                Yeah. Alex:                 I don't know how you feel about Beta Ray Bill though. So how'd you feel about this book? Pete:                Well, yeah. I'm not the hugest Beta Ray Bill fan, but this was a lot of fun. This was really awesome. Art style [google 00:00:54] gave Beta Ray Bill a grittiness that was nice. Yeah, I very much enjoyed this. This was sad. This was not just badass Beta Ray Bill. Alex:                 You okay? Did you die there for a second? Pete:                Yeah. There's some real pain going on. And yeah. Also, Fin Fang Foom, one of my huge favorites in this as well. So, this was a real treat, this book. And the back matter is magical. Alex:                 This very briefly and tangentially ties into the King in Black storyline, which has symbiotes attacking the Marvel universe here. They attack Asgard, Beta Ray Bill fights them off, kind of. And sparks up, or re-sparks up a little bit of a romance with Lady Sif. But I agree with you, as he did in Murder Falcon, he brings big action with big monsters, but also a deep well of emotion here. It's very sad for Beta Ray Bill. Art is great, the writing is great, the emotion is great. I'm all in on this book. I am a sucker for Beta Ray Bill, and I think D.W.J. does right by him. So, I'm very excited to see this going forward. And like you said, there's a great interview that he does with Walter Simonson in the back of the book, which is super cool as well. Pete:                Yeah. It's nice to see him geek out about this and hear about New York in the seventies and the different kinds of people working on stuff. It was a pretty awesome interview that they put in the back and yeah. I mean, the art, the storytelling is really unbelievable, but Beta Ray Bill… Kind of a cursed character and they're really tugging on that and playing with that. And he's not cool with Thor. It's not a fun relationship right now. So I'm glad they're getting to air that out a little bit. I'm very interested to see how that all unfolds. Alex:                 I agree. Next up, Shadecraft number one from Image comics written by Joe Henderson, art by Lee Garbett. In this new comic book, a girl finds out that shadows aren't quite what they're cracked up to be. It ties into an emotional thing from her past that you find out towards the end of the issue. I really liked the setup. I thought this was a good, fun horror book. The art from Lee Garbett was particularly good. The shadow creatures were interesting. I'm curious to see where this goes going forward, because it feels like it really gets to the setup by the end. But I'm in, what was your take Pete? Pete:                Yeah, I agree. I think the art and the storytelling is fantastic. Setting this up in a very interesting way. I really love the last page reveal twist. Very cool. And yeah, as this kid, I was scared shitless of… if you saw a shadow move by the… or a branch at the window or something. This really plays on that fear of moving shadows and how it's hard, especially at night, to get away from shadows. I mean, that's just… That's tough. Alex:                 I got to be honest, Pete, it sounds like that wasn't just a problem when you were a kid. Pete:                I don't think we have time to get into this, but- Alex:                 No, Pete- Pete:                It's a great book. Alex:                 That's been the long game on this podcast this whole time, is to finally get you to confront this fear that you have. Shadecraft number one, check it out. Next up, The Other History of the DC universe number three from DC comics. Written by John Ridley, art by Giuseppe Camuncoli. The first two issues have dealt with the black American experience in the background of the DC universe. Here, we're dealing with the Asian American experience through the lens of Katana and her whole history. What did you think about this one, Pete? Pete:                This is very powerful, really amazing. I was very moved by it. I thought it was really done well. The storytelling is so powerful. The art… Yeah, just kind of the balance of these stanzas, these powerful stanzas, that really hit you versus the comic book art. Really creates this moving, powerful stuff that DC is doing with these books. I've been really enjoying this series. The Other History of the DC universe stuff has just been really impressive. Alex:                 Giuseppe Camuncoli's layouts in particular, are really excellent. John Ridley's writing is great. It's super, unfortunately, timely, given that we are discussing the Asian American experience and violence towards it, in particular, right now. But it's a necessary- Pete:                Stop Asian hate. Alex:                 Yeah, it's a necessary read, like the other two issues of this book, but also very entertaining and weird in a certain way. I don't know much about Katana's history, necessarily. There are little bits here and there. I was like, “Oh yeah, I guess I do that kind of thing”. But what John Ridley is doing here is, like with X-Men: Grand Design, I think was the name of the book, he's taking the entire history of the character and trying to make narrative sense out of it. Which is nearly impossible, but he does it here in a very emotional way. And that's nice to see. Pete:                Yeah, Katana is one of my favorite characters. Always a big fan of Katana. So it was nice to see, all the different stories paid homage to, with this interesting narrative running throughout all of it. It was really well done. Alex:                 Moving from one timely book to another, in a very different way. Silk number one from Marvel, written by Maureen Goo, art by Takeshi Miyazawa. This is a all-Asian team working on a Korean American superhero, which is something that I don't think we've seen before for Silk, necessarily. I could be wrong. Nobody jump into my mentions if I got that incorrect. But at the very least, it's great to see that, as Silk is in a new status quo here. Working for J. Jonah Jameson, at whatever his latest rag is. But I thought this was really fun. I don't have too much affection, necessarily, for Silk as a character. I'm fine with her. She's been fun before. There's been some good storylines, but I thought this was a really nice, very clear setup with a good supporting cast. And I'm interested to see where it goes in issue two. Pete:                I completely agree. I feel like this is a great use of Silk, the character. I feel like they really do a great job of giving her a lot of fun action splash pages, as well as setting up a very cool, interesting story arc. And the fashion stuff is fun and pulled off well, and what's not to like about sitting down to have tea with a giant cat like creature? I think this is a very interesting, cool book, and I'm excited to see where it goes Alex:                 Next up: Crossover number five from image comics written by Donny Cates, art by Geoff Shaw. In this book, we're getting towards the end of the first arc here, as Madman and Power… house. I don't remember the name of the other team. Basically. It's Donny Cates taking all of his books, mashing them up together with tangentially other books. They're all heading towards this big dome where the crossover event has happened and it's all coming down. What did you think about this issue? Pete:                Well, first off you got- bless you. You got Madman with a giant sword. So what's not to love. This is- Alex:                 A sword. Pete:                It's a lot of action, it's a lot of over-the-top stuff, but also, a lot of intense shit goes on here. Oh man, I don't want to spoil anything, but man, it gets, it gets real dark, but- Alex:                 I want to hear it. Spoiler warning. What was the thing that, you thought in particular, got really dark? Pete:                Where the guy shot the girl? Alex:                 Oh, that hasn't happened yet. That's the cliff hanger at the end of the book. He hasn't necessarily shot her. Pete:                Well… He's crying. It says, “I can”. And it looks like it's seconds before the bullet is released out of the chamber. Alex:                 Yeah. Well, we'll see what happens next issue, I guess. Pete:                Oh my God. Alex:                 I guess we'll see what happens. One thing that I really… that I thought was super fun in the book, is Donny has come up with this concept, where all of these different superheroes have been cut apart and mashed back together by scientists on Earth, quote-unquote. And they're called amalgams, which is very funny to anybody who knows about the Amalgam universe. He's having a blast here and it's so creative and so fun. There's a great splash page laid out that mashes up panels from God Country and Madman comics. Very neat. I liked it quite a bit. Alex:                 Next up, Strange Adventures number nine, from DC comics written by Tom King, art by Mitch Gerads and Evan Shaner. Here, a report has come out about Adam Strange from the Justice League. Not exactly indicating that he is a villain, but certainly not precluding that fact. That's what we're dealing with here. As the Pykkt invasion of Earth continues and lots of questions swirl in the background. I'll tell you what, I think we talked about this with an earlier issue. It's interesting this is coming out now, but it seemed very clear to me that, at least tangentially, King is writing about the Mueller report in this issue. Did you get that sense as well? Pete:                I have no idea what's going on and when it comes to King, ever. But it was crazy to see Superman and Batman in this issue. Alex:                 So, this report comes out and it's the vague sort of indictment that Mueller did in the heavily anticipated Mueller report. Where there were a lot of crimes mentioned, but ultimately there said, “Well, it's up to the people who prosecute to do it”. Right. And that's exactly what happens with Adam Strange here. It's very interesting, particularly given now we're past the Trump presidency, though, obviously not the aftereffects of it. To see him take Adam Strange and put him in that place. To the point… there's a panel late in the issue where they zoom in on Adam Strange's face on a TV screen and it looks almost exactly like Trump on the television. So that was kind of fascinating to me. I think it's sort of part of the publishing schedule that has gotten pushed back so far. But I am curious to see where this hits on, given that it is skirting those ideas. You're looking at me like I'm a crazy person right now. Pete:                I am looking at you like a crazy person, because we're on issue number 9 of 12 and we still don't know what the fuck is going on. Alex:                 Well- Pete:                Nine issues deep. Alex:                 I mean, that's how a mystery works Pete. Pete:                Yeah, but let's talk- Alex:                 Unless it's Columbo, in which case they reveal it first and then he figures out how it happens. Pete:                Okay. But, regardless, just thinking about how great of a writer you have to be that, for nine issues of a story, you have no fucking idea what's going on. That is very impressive. Alex:                 Well, I just got one more question for you, Pete. Pete:                Oh my God. Alex:                 All right. Next up, Avengers: Curse of the Man-Thing number one from Marvel. Written by Steve Orlando, art by Francesco Mobili. In this, we are getting a new threat to Man-Thing who, spoiler, beats Man-Thing right at the beginning and the Avengers have to take him down. This is one of these new formats, limited series that Marvel has been doing, where a new hero is going to interact with Man-Thing or this story in a different way. Here we get the Avengers. Next issue is going to be Spiderman, presumably the X-Men after that and other things. But this is also Steve Orlando moving over to the Marvel universe. What was your take Pete? Pete:                Well, Orlando is always a fun, crazy creative person. So this book, I thought did a great job of representing himself here. Man-Thing, getting ripped apart here was so over-the-top and very interesting. Especially because you realize, these chapter things are like parts of his skin that maybe was ripped off. But I think this is a very interesting, unique kind of cool event that's happening and I'm digging it. Alex:                 I like it too. I thought it was super fun. And it's Orlando doing his regular weird ideas, but infusing them into the Marvel universe. He brings in some fun stuff from Jonathan Hickman's run on X-Men and mixes it in here in a fun way. This is good. I like this. Pete:                I agree. Alex:                 And he seems to be redefining what Man-Thing is in the Marvel universe. That should be interesting to see going forward. Next up, The Department of Truth number seven from Image comics, written by James Tynion IV, art by Tyler Boss. In this- Pete:                You think we should even talk about this, because Justin's not here? You know what I mean, maybe we should- Alex:                 Justin does love this book. Pete:                Maybe we should skip it. Alex:                 So we're getting another flashback this issue as Lee Harvey Oswald continues to find out more about the Department of Truth. Here, we find out about the foil guy, the doc who wears foil on his head. We find out about the men and black and the little gray men and their play into the history of the secret history of America. As usual, great stuff in this book. I am loving it. Pete- Pete:                Yeah, I agree. Alex:                 You took off your headphones, what is going on right now? Pete:                Hey man, sometimes you wear headphones for too long. It can start to get like… Feel like you're [crosstalk 00:14:37] Alex:                 Are you listening to me through your forehead. What is going on here? Pete:                Dude, it's a podcast. Take it easy, all right. I can hear you just fine. Alex:                 All right. Pete:                All right. So I really am like… This is such a kind of thing we've heard about the men in black, we're familiar with this kind of tinfoil thing, but this is done in a way that makes sense. I really appreciate all the details and all this stuff going on in this book. I think it's done in such a kind of way with the stylized flashbacks, with the shading and the info. I think this is really a great mix of genres and telling the story. I'm continued to be impressed with this. It's too bad Justin's not here to get his thoughts on it. I'm having a blast and I might just start wearing a tinfoil hat. Alex:                 Hey, speaking of which, this is more of a note for Pete's forehead than his ears. And Pete's forehead, you're looking great. Don't tell his ears, okay? Because they're looking a little busted, to be honest. Pete:                Don't you say shit about my ears. Alex:                 You couldn't hear that. That was through your forehead man. All right. Moving on to the Flash 768 from DC comics. Written by Jeremy Adams, art by Brandon Peterson- Pete:                Here we go. Alex:                 Marco Santucci… What does that mean, “Here we go”? Pete:                Here we go. The fucking Flash. Alex:                 Well… So we've been talking about these books that have come out of DC Future State. A lot of the teams from Future State were giving previews of what's going on in their main books of their return. So I think it has been interesting to talk about them as they have come back. This one is weird. Pete:                Yeah. Yeah. We're still talking about it. Flash and that tricky Speed Force, man. [crosstalk 00:16:28] Sometimes you run so fast, you run out of your clothes and then that's a whole thing and- Alex:                 It happens. So here's the deal with this book. So the thing that confused me for the first half of this book, is we have the setup of Barry Allen is giving up being the Flash. So we could work with the new multi-verse people and explore what's going on with there, after the fallout from Dark Nights: Death Metal. All makes sense. Now, Wally West is the new Flash, he's been promoted. The first half of this book, reverses on that in a very weird way, where Wally says, “Nope, actually… Forget about that tease. I don't want to be the Flash. Barry Allen. You're the Flash”. Barry's like, “Sounds good. Let's have a race. I'll take all of your speed”. Alex:                 So that's fine, but very confusing, given everything that's happened previously. It isn't until the second half of the book that we get to the real concept. That's where things, in my mind, start to get really fun, where Wally West is lost in time. We basically get this quantum leap thing, where he's jumping to major points in the Speed Force, he's inside of their bodies. Pete:                How are they- Alex:                 And Barry Allen is the Iggy. Is it Iggy from Quantum Leap? Pete? Pete:                I don't know. Alex:                 Ziggy. Ziggy. The Ziggy, Dan Hedaya. Who's like, “Oh man, you've got to turn back, Wally. What are you doing? Ah, if you change this, that'll change everything”. And then Wally says, “Oh boy”. Pete:                That show came out in the fifties, I think, bro. Alex:                 It's a great show, with a perfect finale, and you watch your mouth Pete. Pete:                I'll have to take a time machine back. It was just insane to me that these, all these fucking Flashes and there's the Speed Force, but nobody can figure it out. And it's so tricky yet. They're running the whole time and you got a fucking treadmill, but… I don't know, man. Alex:                 I enjoyed the second half of the issue because I am a sucker for Quantum Leap and I want to see more of that. So we'll see how it goes. Next up, Ghost Rider: King in Black number one, from Marvel. Written by Ed Brisson, art by Juan Frigeri. This is also a very weird, interesting issue because, technically, it's a King in Black tie-in, but really it's tying up everything that's been happening in Ghost Rider for the past couple of years and wrapping a bow on that. It's much more about that to the point that, the Ghost Rider characters, at certain points, are standing in the middle of symbiote-stricken Manhattan being like, “Eh, let's figure out this other stuff instead”. Pete:                Yeah. There's still a crazy amount of standing around talking for all the demons that are trashing the place. Alex:                 But still, pretty fun, I thought. What did you think about this one, Pete? Pete:                Yeah, it was fun. I mean, they're having fun discussions about their names. Mephisto blows, but still, some fun stuff in there with that. Yeah. It was nice to see Ghost Rider up in this… the Penance Stare, with the old damnation stare. That was cool. Fun little twist on trusting, not trusting the devil. It's just fun. It's a good book. You know what you're going to get into with it. And it's over-the-top in all the right ways. Alex:                 Next up, Two Moons number two from Image comics written by John Arcudi, art by Valerio Giangiordino. This book, we love the first issue of. I might be getting this wrong, but I believe it's basically taking indigenous myths and mixing them with the Civil War for a very horrific, supernatural tale. How do you think the second issue held up to the first one? Pete:                It's really tripped out in all the right ways. It's very magical. Spooky, cool. The Native American stuff is amazing. It's very, very well done. Some interesting storytelling stuff. And I really loved where it ended too. Alex:                 This is a absolutely gorgeous book. Absolutely gorgeous. I like the writing, but really, the art in particular and the designs of the… I don't even want to call them monsters. They're more mythical creatures, is stunning throughout. Highly recommend picking this up. This is one that, it feels a little bit like, I don't know. It's very Vertigo to me, I think. And it's the sort of thing that I think would be good to jump in on in the early issues to really get a sense of it because it's that good. Alex:                 Next up, Future State: Superman VS. Imperious Lex, number three from DC comics written by Mark Russell, art by Steve Pugh, not Florence Pugh, like I initially thought. It's Steve Pugh. This is the very last, I believe, of the Future State books. Probably cutting in a little late here, but so fun and such a good story. Love Mark Russell. This is a future Superman, as you could tell, from the title. Battling Lex, who has taken over a planet, as usual. It's very satirical as you'd expect from this team. If you read the first two issues, you know exactly what to expect here, but I loved it. This is one of my favorite Future State books. I'm so glad they got to finish it off, even if it was a late. Pete, you're nodding your head. What's going on? Pete:                I mean, this is just like, what if Lex Luther was stuck in the Wall-E movie? It's a little too crazy for me, but I appreciate what they're doing. Alex:                 It's so funny. The characters are so funny. Louis Lane is so funny. Lex is so funny. It's great. He just sets up these Rube Goldberg machines of ridiculous satire and pays them off in such a fun way. I like it quite a bit. Next up, Decorum number seven, from Image comics. Written by Jonathan Hickman and art by Mike Huddleston. Alex:                 This is really bringing together everything that's been going out in the book in a big way that these weird crystalline creatures that showed up that seemed, at first, unconnected from the Assassin's Academy that was going on in the other side of the book. Last issue, that finally came together, where the crystalline creatures gave a mission to the assassins to find this egg that was being hidden, which I believe was the third element, that was just thrown in there. Here, our main character stumbles on that egg, opens up the egg, finds a hot dude with no head. Very funny. This is great. I can't believe how well this has come together. And Mike Huddleston's art is stunning across the board. The way that he's bringing all of these different art styles together, often on the same page, is ridiculously impressive. Pete:                I agree with you, Alex. It's worth it alone for the art. It's really unbelievable. Sometimes… Just a dude with part of your face. But I think this is really tripped out, weird, in all the right ways. And it's really telling a very interesting story, but the real hero here is the artist. The pages and everything are just amaze balls. Alex:                 And in classic Pete fashion, I got to bring up a book that we didn't throw into the stack, because I didn't want to get into a fight about it. But, X-Men number 19. Also by Jonathan Hickman, it is a master work. It is so good. It's one of the best issues of the series ever, it's amazing. You get the X-Men trapped in this vault, traveling through time. This incredible X-23 Laura story throughout. So good. Read it. Just pick it up right now. Don't listen to whatever Pete has to say. And moving on to our last book- Pete:                Wait, that's so unfair that you didn't even put it out there. Like it was something we could read- Alex:                 Here's the thing, Pete. [crosstalk 00:24:25] I've got to be honest. I'll pull back the curtain here. I got to be honest. I read the book because I was like, “Ah, I want to read it anyway because I liked the X-Men books, but I'm not going to send it out to Pete because Pete's just going to be like, ‘Fuck X-Men. These islands are having sex. Stupid. What's going on? I don't like it'”. That I would just set it out. It would just be a big argument. So I was like, “I won't send it out”, but then I read it. I was like, “This is legitimately one of the best issues of the series ever. Would Pete like this, because it's about Laura X-23, who he loves”. And I was like, “I don't know. I got to weigh that against Pete just yelling because it's X-Men. What do we do here?” Pete:                Why wouldn't you trust me to appreciate a good X-23 story? Alex:                 Trust you? I've known you for 15 years, Pete. Pete:                Oh my God. You're the worst. You didn't believe in it enough to put it out there for us to review. You were like [crosstalk 00:25:20] yeah, you didn't believe in it. So it's hard to take your recommendation after you didn't believe in something enough to send it to me and just- Alex:                 I'll tell you what. I will send it to you. You could read it, and then you can tell me off-air what's going on. Pete:                Okay, great. That'll be great for everybody. Alex:                 I think so. Tell you what, check out our podcast off-air, where you visit me and Pete in person and ask us comic book recommendations. Last but not least, Batman/Catwoman number four from DC comics. Written by Tom King, art by Clay Mann. Pete, sounds like you're loving this. You got to explain to me what's going on. I feel like the Pete of this particular book, because I'm lost. Pete:                Okay. First off, love the bat and cat double page, spread title page, mansion, advent calendar thing, that just sets up the mood for this creepy, fun world that we're in. And then starting off with Batwoman beating up Penguin and wanting to know where mom and the Joker are. What an interesting start, just grabs the reader all the right ways. But bat and cat are fighting. You know, cat's been doing some things without bat's knowledge, she knew he was going to get mad, but she didn't tell him until last minute. Now bat's mad. So how are we going to move forward? I also really loved how the Penguin is drawn like Danny DeVito. That makes me very happy. What do you want to know? I think it's great. Alex:                 Listening to you talk about it is my experience reading it, because I just cannot keep track of the timelines. Pete:                There's like three different timelines happening at once. Alex:                 No, and I know that. You've got the Mask of the Phantasm timeline. You've got the very early bad cat stuff going on. Pete:                Right. Alex:                 And then you've got the future cat stuff where she's killed the Joker and is dealing with it, with Penguin. And there was their kid, who was the new Batman. So I get all that. Pete:                Batwoman. Alex:                 There's the transitions between them that just throw me, and I'm sure there's a point to it. Maybe they're doing something about memory and how memories are very fluid and go from one time period to another- Pete:                Yeah, because it's also like cat and bat always have this thing about a disagreement about when they first met. Alex:                 Yes. So I get all that, but you look at a book like Strange Adventures, also from Tom King, where you have- Pete:                Also confusing. Alex:                 But, even if it jumps between timelines of the same page, you've got Evan “Doc” Shaner and Mitch Gerads. So there's a delineation between the timelines. So you're able to follow, okay. Here's where we are at any given point. It is disorienting for me to read this book, and I still, and I know I'm harping on this. I don't know what the Phantasm has to do with this. Pete:                That's going to be the fun, but also it is going to make sense. And I think it's going to be one of those things where it will be very interesting to get the trade, because there could be… it could make that much more sense, reading it all together. Alex:                 Absolutely. And I'm more than willing to follow it until the end. It's just- Pete:                And you should follow it, because it's amazing art and writing and like such a fun, interesting story with these two characters we know and we've heard stories… for all time about them. Alex:                 I trust these creators. So I'm going to follow it until the end. I'm just having a hard time comprehending it as of now, that's what I'm saying. Alex:                 And that's it for The Stack. If you'd like to support our podcast and other podcasts we do, patrion.com/comic book club.

Pete:                Real quick. Alex:                 Yeah. Pete:                You still have the two owls fucking up behind you. They're still fucking each other behind you, in between shows, you could have taken one down or separated them. Alex:                 Listen Pete, you do not know that the same people who watch our live show are also listening to our Stack podcasts. Don't assume that there's a continuity there. Just to explain to everybody just listening to this podcast. Pete:                I am listening. Alex:                 There are two owls who may or may not be fucking behind me. It's unclear, and nobody knows. All right? Pete:                Okay. Alex:                 But I will say one of them has a very deep hole and the other one does not. Pete:                Stop saying that. Please stop. Alex:                 It's a puppet. It's a puppet. So you can put your hand in it. That's what I'm saying. He'll wear you like a puppet, Pete. Let's talk about The Stack. There's a bunch of books that came out. Pete:                So many books. Alex:                 So many books for us to chat about, and some big books as well. Kicking it off with The Department of Truth. Number one, print image comic… Pete:                Oh, you want to start with your favorite? Alex:                 I want to start with my favorite. There's also a ton of hype on this book, so I'm excited to chat about it. Written by James Tynion IV, art by Martin Simmonds. James Tynion IV, as we talked about a lot on all of our podcasts, has been on a roll lately. And in particular, I think like… This is not an insult, but Wind, maybe a little less so, even though I really enjoy that book, but there's something about- Pete:                Wow. Fuck you. Don't. Alex:                 Something is Killing the Children came out and there was an insane amount of hype on it, and then it delivered. The Department of Truth seems sort of to think like such a clear title, you know what this book is on going in, and then it completely delivers in the first issue. I'm almost reticent to spoil it because it is one of those books, in my mind, it feels like a Brian Kay von book, where you read it and you're like, “Yes. Okay. This last page, this got me.” Pete:                Oh my God. The last page though. Alex:                 Yes. Pete:                But that's the thing, you said you read it and you know what's going on, I did not. It took me a while to kind of piece it all together, but man, by that last page you are hyped. Alex:                 Yes. Pete:                You are so hyped and ready for the next issue. It's unbelievable. But the art is are really cool. It really fits the tone of what they're trying to do in such a great way. Alex:                 Yeah. Pete:                And man, is the book good. Alex:                 I know we're bouncing around and not actually mentioning the plot here, and part of it is by design. Pete:                That's how I like to talk. Alex:                 Well, I don't want to tell the people what the plot are, because I read the book, not actually knowing what it was, then read, went to Image Comics' website and looked at their blurb, it gives away too much. I didn't want to know any of that stuff going in. Alex:                 So, go in totally clean, know that it is a thing. You could probably tell us from the title, but it's a thing about kind of conspiracy theories and the government. I think that's all you need to know. Pete:                Don't spoil it. You fucking ass. Alex:                 That's all I'm going to say. The art, the writing, everything, it feels to me, it feels like a vintage vertigo book. Like a book that like would come out at the same time as Sandman and everything else where you'd be like, “Oh shit, this is going to change the industry.” Alex:                 And now it's another in a line of amazing books from Image Comics, but it is great. And to your point, Martin Simmonds art, it feels a little… Ah, who's the guy who did 30 days of Night? Is it Ben Templesmith? Pete:                Yes. Alex:                 It feels a little like Ben Templesmith on the art, but it's different enough. James Tynion is on a fire here, and it is a book that feels insanely current, like insanely current. Pete:                It's really well done. It's just so good. I wonder if the people at Image are just high fiving themselves like, “We're fucking killing it right now. You can't touch us.” Alex:                 Well, the thing that is, I think, so great about this book, and again, this is not spoilers, this is just kind of skirting what it's about, is that it is about our current moment in time and our current political moment in time, but it's fun to read at the same time. It's still scary at points. It's fun at points. There's good action. There's good adventure. There's good weirdness. Great, great book. Do not miss this one. Pete:                Really great book. Alex:                 Don't miss it. Alex:                 Next up, another book that I'm going to say don't mix, Shang-Chi, number one from Marvel, written by Gene Luen Yang and art by Dike Ruan. This is another one that I wasn't sure about going in, but as usual, Gene Luen Yang killed it. Alex:                 We get Shang-Chi, turns out he's part of a dynasty of five weapons. It's very similar on the surface to what happened with Iron Fist, where there were those seven immortal cities, but it goes in a very different direction by the ed. Super fun. Great last page. I'm 100% on board with the character, and it's a very different take on Shang-Chi. Alex:                 It's clearly calculated to have something that has a trade or multiple trades on the shelves by the time the movie hits, but you will not regret picking up this comic book. Pete:                I'm so happy with the team behind this book. So happy for this new relaunch of Shang-Chi. One of my favorite characters as a kid, also get a little Fin Fang Foom, which I was totally pumped to see. This is a great book, great art, fun storytelling, and it picks up and you think like, “Okay.” But then you're like… It just does such a great job of unveiling the story in such a way that kind of is a little different than what we're used to, but still has all the action and stuff that you want. Pete:                I'm very impressed with this book. I'm very excited to see how this is going to move forward. And also this was the first Marvel book that I read with the Brian Starfreeze- Alex:                 Stelfreeze? Pete:                Stelfreeze, sorry. Stelfreeze tribute to Chadwick Bozeman, and it's very fucking moving and an amazing art and so powerful. And I'm so happy that Marvel is doing this. Alex:                 Man, they really went all out for that. I mean, just to talk about that for a moment. A lot of last weeks books had the Chadwick Bozeman tribute [crosstalk 00:06:51] rest in power branding on it. But this week, there's a whole testimonial from Ta-Nehisi Coates. There was the art, as you mentioned. And yeah, it's really powerful stuff. Pete:                Yeah. It's really moving. Alex:                 But yeah, that's all said about Shang-Chi. One of the things that I love about it is Yang does such a great job of sneaking humor in out of nowhere. The rhythm of his humor, it almost sneaks in from the side in a certain way where it's in the middle of an action sequence and suddenly there's a joke. Alex:                 It completely throws me in the right way where I'm like, “Wait, wait, hold up, this was a serious scene, what's going on? That's funny, that thing that you're doing.” It just makes it really fun to read, even as he's setting up these good characters, this good mythology. Alex:                 Getting back to the Iron Fist thing, it almost feels like a rejoinder to Iron Fist, which is very good, mind you, but to the whole conversation surrounding Iron Fist, the TV show, where people are like, “Dude, cast an Asian person, person of Asian descent as Iron Fist, or just do Shang-Chi. What are you doing?” Alex:                 And this comic series is very specifically to be like, “Here you go.” Pete:                Thank you. Yes, please. Alex:                 Great stuff. Can't wait to read the second issue of that. Let's move on to one of our favorites here on the show, that Texas blood number four Image Comics, by Chris Condon and Jacob Phillips. We had Chris Condon on the live show a couple of weeks ago, and that was super fun to talk to him about this book. Alex:                 This issue, we're continuing the storyline of this brother who's come back to Texas. He's discovered some bad doings around his brother who was killed. This is very much a middle of the arc issue, but there's still such good character stuff here. And there's such a good emotionally based character twist that happens as well. Every issue of this is great. I'm really enjoying it. Pete:                Yeah. The storytelling, the pacing, the art, it's really, really well done. It's very interesting. They do a great job issue to issue, giving you more information on this bigger thing in such a cool way that you're just you're in and you want more and more and more. They're killing it on this book. Just the paneling, it's just really impressive package. Alex:                 Yeah. There's a great scene in here with our sheriff character, who we haven't seen a lot of since the first issue. Where he's sitting down with his wife and his wife is talking to him and his… If you haven't been reading the book, he has this verbal tick where he just says, “Well.” And that's pretty much it all the time. Alex:                 The way that the lettering plays out in particular, it reads so well as a scene where she's just- Pete:                So well. Alex:                 Yeah. Yes. Where she's just kind of like needling him a little bit. And he's like, “Well.” And she's like, “Well?” Alex:                 It's great. Just the rhythm of that scene is so good. And just those little character moments are so nice. Definitely pick up this book. Pete:                Yeah. Alex:                 Next one up, I'm very curious to get your take on this, Pete. Batman: Three Jokers, number two from DC Comics written by Jeff Johns and Jason Fabok. This is continuing with the storyline, as you can tell from the title of, there are actually three Jokers. There's the original Joker, the criminal, there's the comedian, and there's the performer. I'm forgetting what the third one is. Whatever it is. He's dead this issue. Pete:                The criminal, the comedian, and the clown. Alex:                 The clown, there we go. And the clown was killed by Red Hood last issue. There's serious repercussions for this issue. I got to tell you, I am so stressed out reading this book, I can't quite explain it. Alex:                 Jason Fabok's art is phenomenal, but the feeling and the tension that Jeff Johns is putting in this through the characters is everything that should have been present to Doomsday Clock but wasn't, but is here. It's very hard to read, but it feels like that is part of the point. What's your take on it? Pete:                Yeah. That's the thing. It is very hard to read. What sucks is it reopens a wound of… We get Jason Todd again, fucked up by the Joker in a way that's not cool and way out of bounds. And you have this hard conversation with Batman and Barbara and it's like, I'm reading this going, “Hey, Jeff Johns, what are you fucking doing to me over here, man? Well, I already lived this and had to live with this already. And then you're making us redo it.” It's very painful and I'm just wondering why. Why? Alex:                 Well, it's interesting to pair this with Doomsday Clock, I think, because Doomsday Clock, for all its faults, was Jeff John's mission statement on what Alan Moore had to say through Watchman, what Alan Moore had to say about superhero comics and what he had to say about the universe. Alex:                 It's certainly, at the very least in this issue, particularly given the last page, feels like this is- Pete:                That last page was awesome though. Alex:                 Well, it's Jeff Johns' mission statement on killing Joke versus Watchman, which is not unimpeachable, but it's still a masterpiece of the forum, as we talked about at length on our Watchman watch podcast. Killing Joke has not aged well. Killing Joke- Pete:                Well, that's also the thing, is the killing joke recently had a movie done that was awful. Just garbage in a way that was unnecessary and very painful. I went to the movie theater very excited about what I was going to see and got kicked in the nuts repeatedly. And now Jeff John's like, “Oh, guess what? I'm not done kicking you in the fucking nuts yet.” Alex:                 Here's your problem, you got to stop going to 4D Movie theaters, and then you won't get kicked in the nuts repeatedly. You pay extra for the shit, right? Pete:                Don't bring up 4D, man. That shit is awful. Alex:                 Jason Fabok started [crosstalk 00:13:23] Pete:                I think 4D is the reason we're in this fucking pandemic, because there's spraying in the seats and that's where the COVID started. Alex:                 Oh man. Pete, by the way, I love your podcast that you do out of Alex Ross's network. It's very good. Batman: Three jokers is also, I think, very well done. Makes me uncomfortable. I'm not quite sure where it's going. And I'm certainly nervous on the places it going to leave the Joker and Batman in continuity, when eventually things link up. But it's a nicely put together package, I would say. Pete:                It's too bad Justin is not here. Alex:                 Yeah. He loves the tight little package. Next up Chew Number Three from Image Comics, written and lettered by John Layman, art and colors by Dan Boultwood. This is continuing the story of the Breaking Bad and the Chew universe as Chew's sister. Goes darker and darker. Now they're just good fun issue of this book. I'm really enjoying a lot and I'm enjoying revisiting the Chew universe through this time. Pete:                Oh, see what you did there? Alex:                 Yes, I do. Pete:                Yeah, I agree. This is just a fun extension of something we already love. Very interesting to kind of have these two kind of like sisters. It's very cool to see where this goes. I think it's just a great continuation of something, and the art and writing, it feels spot on to what we love and it's just great. Alex:                 Yeah. It took a little while. I enjoyed the first two issues, but this is the first issue that really feels humor-wise on the same level as Chew, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I'm very happy about the series. Alex:                 Let's move on to one I'm sure we're going to agree on, X-Factor Number Two from Marvel, written by Leah Williams and art by Carlos Gomez. This is the second part of 10 of Swords. I know I loved the first issue of this. I thought this is great. Alex:                 The second issue is a little more of a business issue as the team recovers from the disaster that happened in other worlds. Now, they need to find 10 swords to battle apocalypses, evil children. That's what's going on. Here though, they're dealing with the fact that Rockslide died, Apocalypse got killed, Richter almost got killed. And what happens after that. Alex:                 And we once again get a realignment of how death works in the X-Men part of the universe, that I though was very smart and ups the stakes of everything that happens. I'm really enjoying this crossover. Pete, I'm sure you feel the same. Over to you. Pete:                This fucking sucks, man. This is such fucking bullshit. What the fuck is even happening? There is so much shit happening that it is just insane. There is too much to deal with. And then in between that, they're making us read these fucking briefing statements- Alex:                 Love it. Pete:                … wherever the fuck they are. The signed affidavit bullshit. I'm so happy that Charles Xavier finally lost his lollipop head. I'm very excited in that. Alex:                 Can we talk about that moment? I know you don't like this, but the very fact that everybody, this entire time, since House of Acts and Powers of 10 launched, has been talking about, “Wait, the X-Men could just resurrect themselves whenever they want, what does it matter if they die? The moment when, and this is a big spoiler for the issue, but they try to resurrect Rockslide and it goes horribly wrong to the point where Xavier's helmet shorts out, and we get to see every other helmet short out. Alex:                 I screamed, is probably too strong, but I definitely was gassed at that moment, because it was like, “This is all over.” It turns out that's not exactly what's going on, but that the stakes are that high for this thing, I thought was great. Pete:                Yeah. You said this thing, because you don't even know what the fuck is going on. Alex:                 I know what's going on. Pete:                Your shit is too confusing. And it's weird because it's like, okay, here's a shot of Xavier's helmet in a root bath, overlooking something. And then, oh, here's a shot of Xavier's helmet in a root bath that's in space, in a root bath that's somewhere else under a sun and then water. Alex:                 Hold on. This is the most- Pete:                What is happening in this book? Alex:                 This is the most excited I've been about the X-Men in decades. Pete:                Congratulations. You should- Alex:                 Thank you. Pete:                … read X-Men more. I think that it's just sanity stacked on insanity, stacked on insanity. We have to deal with the first thing you did before we can move on. We're barely dealing with the fact that all the X-Men said, “Hey, fuck you to the rest of the world.” Okay. Now you're on your own private Island, you're fucking each other, great. Then it's just one insane thing after another insane thing, and then this insane council that like oversees everything. It is just so much insanity I keep hoping like, “All right, eventually this is going to calm down so we can catch up to all the madness.” And it just stays on the gas pedal, and I'm really having a hard time keeping up and dealing with it. Alex:                 I mean, I get what you're saying. I do think though that this crossover is more accessible than the stuff that has come before. I love the fact that, again, spoiler for the issue, but Polaris is some sort of seer, she's been given- Pete:                Poor Polaris, is really falling apart here. Alex:                 She is falling apart because she let down her team, she let down everybody, but she has the information to where these 10 swords are going to be so that they can battle Apocalypse's evil children. Alex:                 I love the fact that she does this prophecy and the folks at Marvel, no, we're going to pick it apart, we're going to figure it out very quickly. So instead, at the end of the issue, they have Cipher being like, “Okay, here's what I think they're talking about on the prophecy. Here's the characters. They're going to go get swords.” Alex:                 And some of them are going to be wrong, but I love the idea that they're sending us on a wrong path in some places, while on the right path in others, like of course, Wolverine's going to have a sword. We already know Illyana is one of the people who has the sword. Pete:                The Illyana part was great. Alex:                 That was great, so much fun. I am having a blast so far with the storyline and I'm excited to see what happens Pete:                I would like to be enjoying it, but there's just too much madness going on with portals opening and closing, and then the White Queen's being mean. It's just it's too much. Alex:                 Excuse me. Pete:                Well timed cough there, buddy. Alex:                 No problem. Pete:                What are you trying to say? Alex:                 Nothing. Nailbiter returns number five from Image Comic. Story and art by Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson. This is picking up the storyline. There's a contest going on in Buckaroo with a bunch of copycat serial killers, or are they? In this issue, there's a big twist. And we find there's another Nailbiter who looks exactly like the original Nailbiter. Some big action goes down. Alex:                 We had Joshua Williamson on the show a couple of months ago and he talked about the storyline. I love that he's just following through on it. This is a big fun action. Every single issue, out of the gate. I'm having a blast reading this one too. Pete:                It's unbelievable. It's really a lot of fun. It's fast paced. It's action oriented. But also the art is amazeballs. You've got a lot of fun, double spread stuff. Great characters. Great action. This is just really, really fun book. Alex:                 Yeah. Next up WW84 Number One, which of course is World War 84. We skipped a couple in there, but that's all right. Number one. Just kidding. It's Wonder Woman 84, Number one. This is- Pete:                Story. Alex:                 Yes. Hold on. A story by Anna Obropta and Louise Simonson art by Brett Blevins. I'm going to say two things about this. Pete:                Well, wait, wait, wait. Alex:                 Yeah. Yeah. Pete:                First off, it's a tie into the movie. Alex:                 Yes. Pete:                Which I am so excited for this movie, but obviously let's push it back until we can all go see it in theaters or whatever we need to do. So excited for this movie. And then was so excited for this comic book because it's a tie in and I'm like, “Okay, maybe it'll match the tone of what's going on.” But then I got really disappointed and was like, “God, I hope the movie is nothing like this, because there is some really just lame character stuff. I mean, one of them is called Jazz and is just like chill Jazz, grownups never listen, who wrote this? Like what are you- Alex:                 Anna Obropta and Louise Simonson. Pete:                Yeah, I know. But like really over the top kind of like, I'm being a kid right now and parents are lame. And then the accents of the robbers like, “The stairs. Tor the roof. Over that way.” I'm like, wow. No, [crosstalk 00:22:49] but let's tone this down a little bit. Make it a little bit more like not… It seems a joke to me. Alex:                 Wow. I didn't realize you'd be so negative about this. I thought this was just fine. I thought that was fine as like a movie tie-in comic. The big blubber to me was this idea that like… It's very clear that this machine is running, but certain parts of it are not working well. And what I mean by that is, as you mentioned, the movie was supposed to come out months ago, then it was supposed to come out in, I want to say, October. Pete:                Yeah. Alex:                 And now it's being pushed to December. It'll probably be pushed back again. Let's be honest. But this weekend I actually went to Target, which was a harrowing experience. Pete:                Why would you do that? Alex:                 It was actually fine. We needed to get my kids shoes and there was barely anybody there, so it was totally okay. Pete:                Oh, wow. Alex:                 Yeah, it was pretty awesome. I was very nervous about it. But walking through the toy aisle, they had Legos for Wonder Woman in 1984, and I was like, “Man, this is not coming out for months now and you have the Legos already on the shelf.” And it's the same thing with the comic. And it's a real bummer to be like, they couldn't stop it. The comic still needed to come out, the Legos still needed to come out, even though the movie has been pushed way, way back. And that made me weirdly sad. Pete:                Yeah. Alex:                 That's all. But that said, I thought the comic is fine. It is the sort of thing that if the movie was out or the movie was coming out next week, I think we'd read it and be like, “Yeah, this is cute. This is fine. I can't wait to see the movie.” As is, as the only thing we're getting for months and months, there's a lot more pressure on it. Pete:                Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I do like this idea of putting Wonder Woman in a museum where she can tell stories about like- Alex:                 She belongs in a museum. Pete:                Fuck you. Telling stories about bad-ass females throughout history, that's awesome. I fucking love that. Premise, I don't want stereotypical weird kind of characters. Alex:                 We named Need the dog Diana. Pete:                Oh, wow. Alex:                 Yeah. Pete:                Well, I hope you got your kids wonderful Wonder Woman shoes while you were at Target. Alex:                 No, they didn't want that. Next up, Sea of stars, Number seven from Image Comics written by Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallum, art by Steven Green. Another really just good solid issue of this book as a dad chases his son through the universe. In this issue, the son finds out that his dad is alive. There's some mix-ups there and some great action set pieces involving space. Well, what'd you think, Pete? Pete:                This is just continues to be amazing. The art is really still in the show. And the characters, these are so fun and creative characters and really well drawn. It's just kind of the scary thing of, you think losing your kid in a store is bad, try losing your kid in space. Unbelievable scenario and just really over the top fun. Every issue has just been a real treat and it continues, continues to get better. Alex:                 Yeah, I agree. Let's move on to Marvel Zombies Resurrection, Number two, from Marvel. Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, art by Leonard Kirk. We've really been enjoying this book or at least the first issue and the preview, zero issue, whatever you want to call it. The issue that came before. As Spiderman takes Franklin and Valarie Richards to try to stop the zombie plague that has affected their universe. Alex:                 It was a great twist in this issue involving the Phalynx and the robots of the Marvel universe that I thought was so smart and so well done and added some of the danger in a really nice way. There's also a wonderful and sad scene with Viv Vision's daughter. Another just very good solid issue of this book. Pete:                Yeah. I mean, the Punisher [crosstalk 00:26:56] before- Alex:                 Yeah, what did you think about that, Pete? Pete:                I mean, come on. Fucking come on. But this comic is great, even though I was like, “Oh man.” But the Viv thing was just so heartbreaking. Alex:                 No, you can do it. Come for him. Come for Phillip Kennedy Johnson. We've had him on the show a couple of times. Come for him. You tell him what he did to your boy, the Punisher. Pete:                He made a choice. He made a choice. It wasn't as upsetting as Frankie Castle. It's an interesting choice. Alex:                 Filings Castle? Pete:                Yeah, I don't know about- Alex:                 Yeah. It doesn't quite work as well. It doesn't roll off the tongue. Really good book, excited to see how this potentially ties into the bigger story in the Marvel universe that's being told. That should be very cool. Alex:                 Next up, Ascender, Number 13 from Image Comics written by Jeff Lemire and art by Dustin Nguyen. I don't know. Every issue. This is good. The end. Pete:                I mean, it's hard because it's like… It really is. Every issue is just like a painted, just unbelievable artistic feet that is like water color and beautiful and amazing. Pete:                The action, the storytelling, the connecting, these Ascender, Descender worlds, it's really impressive how big the story It's great that Jeff Lemire has got to tell this giant story. And he has an amazing artist who bring it to life. Alex:                 I cannot believe how much it is tying into Descender at this point. I really thought it was going to be its own thing, but nope, it's basically the same story at this point. And every old character that we get back again is so exciting. Another one happens at the end of this issue, the cover of the next one promises a huge one is coming back. This is great. This is just a thrilling fantasy Sci-fi mashup that I can't wait to read every month. Pete:                Yeah. And also, I just wanted to say the Driller playing hide and seek was just so nice. Alex:                 Great stuff. Love Driller. Pete:                In the middle of all this madness. Alex:                 So good. Next up, one that I'm sure you liked, Pete. Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey, Number Three, from DC Comics, written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, art by Amanda Conner. Alex:                 As we talked about with the two previous issues, this is just classic. Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner on a Harley Quinn, except as raunchy as they want to be. And they want to be very raunchy as usual. Alex:                 Harley Quinn has gotten one over the Joker, stolen the collective treasure of all the criminals in Gotham City, and they're coming for her this issue. The Birds of Prey of course, kind of hate her, but are kind of having her back at the same time. This is just so much fun to read. This is one of my favorite things coming out from Black Label. Pete:                It's great. And it's also nice to see Alfred alive. And the Alfred, Batman conversation about Harley Quinn being at the Wayne Manor is hysterical and really fun. It just feels like an extension of the animated series. And I hear the voices of the characters from that. Especially Clay Face. And the hole riddled with nails joke was hysterical. I mean, those two are just a powerhouse couple and they're killing it. Alex:                 It's just so much fun. Amanda Conner's art is so great, and so enjoyable. So funny to read every time. Just the way that they mine jokes, like the Beaver jokes, over and over and over again. But at the same time, they're still funny and stupid in the right way. Every single issue. And not just every single issue of this book, but their entire run of Harley Quinn books. It's wild that it still works this far down the road, but it absolutely does. Pete:                I just want to say, while we're still in the DC world. I did check out some of that, wasn't on the list, and I wanted to quickly talk. Batman, Joker or War zone, Number one. A lot of people are wondering about the Clown Hunter, and you do get the reveal of who the Clown Hunter is in that issue. Pete:                That was driving me crazy. If that was something that you wanted to go check out, you do get to the bottom of that in that issue. Alex:                 Who is it? Who's Clown Hunter, Pete? Pete:                Well, that's the fun thing is it's not like, oh my God, it's, you know what I mean? It's a kid who grew up in Gotham who says Batman could have saved his parents. And I was like, “Great. That's good enough for me. That makes sense.” Alex:                 He figured out who Batman is? Pete:                Well, he just sees Batman as Batman. Alex:                 Oh, okay, I see what you're saying. All right. Fun stuff. Thanks for the surprise pick. Moving onto Rogue planet, Number five, from Oni press, written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Andy McDonald. We talked about every issue of this wild space horror book. Alex:                 I believe this is the last one, which I was kind of surprised by. But we get some very, I thought, satisfying answers to all the bizarre, horrific weirdness that's been going on to this planet. Pete:                That's the thing. I was like, “How are they going to tie in all this madness?” Because it seemed like every issue was just, “Look at this crazier thing that's going on on this planet. Oh, you thought that was crazy, check this out.” And it just keep tightening. And then they really delivered on this issue. Such a cool explanation. So moving. Very, very cool and interesting. This book is worth it. Check this out, get it collected, whatever you want to do. You'll be happy you did. Rogue Planet is not only artistically amazing, but it's a great story. Alex:                 Yeah. And a little pluggy plug, we're actually going to have Cullen Bunn on our live show next month, ostensibly, to talk about varying comic stuff, but I'm sure we will bring up Rogue Planet as well. Alex:                 But as Pete mentioned, it's coming out in Trade, definitely pick it up there. It's worth it. Ties up really nicely. I was very happy and very surprised at how concretely everything made sense by the end. Pete:                Yeah, it was really impressive. Alex:                 There you go. Let's talk about another horror book, The Immortal Hulk: The Threshing Place, Number one, from Marvel. Written by Jeff Lemire and art by Mike Del Mundo. This is, I believe, one of the first time somebody other than Al Ewing has written specifically an Immortal Hulk tale. We've had the Hulk pop-up in other books at this point in the Immortal Hulk form, but this is a one-off horror story set in this universe. And I love it. Alex:                 I wish they would do this forever. It feels like the main book, and Pete, maybe this is part of what you've responded to. I know you haven't loved the horror Hulk in general. But it really started off as these done in one, almost tales from the crypt episodes, but starring the Hulk. And we very much got away from this, for this Uber story that Al Ewing has built, which is wild and insane. And I've been loving it a very different way. Alex:                 But this story gets back to basics here, where it's almost like the Hulk series, but through the lens of Immortal Hulk, where Bruce Banner is traveling around, he finds a weird gamma mystery. It's very dark. It's very sad. Mike Del Mundo's art is very evocative, and Americana, while also not shying away from the horror elements, just a really good one-shot across the board. Pete:                I was really, really, really impressed with this book. Jeff Lemire killed this. This was a very moving book, still in this world of Al Ewing's kind of horror version, but just there was a lot of beauty and heart in this. Whereas I feel like if you're telling a Hulk story, it's got to kind of have those things of what are we really doing here, what's really important? And the Hulk kind of helping these people and really saving this kid was so beautiful. And the whole fact of like, at least you're not alone kid, you have your father, was just very touching, really well done. Pete:                I'm so happy Jeff Lemire got to tell this one shot, and it still worked in the kind of bigger picture of what Al is doing. I was really impressed by this book. Very moved by it. Alex:                 Yeah, I agree. I know I kind of said this before, but I could read a million of these. I hope that they just keep releasing Immortal Hulk one shots from different perspectives with different writer, artists, teams. I don't know if they will, but that would be so much fun. So we'll see what happens. Alex:                 Last but not least. X-ray Robot, Number Two, from Dark Horse Comics. Story and art by Michael Allred, color art by Laura Allred. If you see the names of the cover, you know exactly what you're getting into. Alex:                 It's a bunch of Sci-fi psychedelic weirdness involving a robot who is sucking people through multiple dimensions. There's some really goofy shit that happens in this book that is just bits, and exactly the right way, involving portals. It's much more slapstick, I think, than their usual books, but I had a fun time reading this. How'd you feel about it, Pete? Pete:                Portal bits, I love it. Yeah. This was a lot of fun. It's this classic kind of like art for kind of tripped out world. I just think it's really kind of in their sweet spot and it's a really great book. If you've enjoyed any of their stuff, you will really love this book. It's definitely, really cool and really well done. Alex:                 I agree. And that is it for the Stack.

To celebrate the release of Endgame this month we're diving into the character that launched the MCU: Tony Stark aka Iron Man. Tony Stark is an interesting character for Marvel. On face value he might seem like Marvel's attempt to duplicate Bruce Wayne. A rich playboy during the day who fights crime at night. The difference is, Tony Stark is the more interesting identity between Tony & Iron Man. A lot of early Iron Man villains are really Tony Stark villains who cross paths with Iron Man because Tony hides his true identity as Iron Man by claiming the Armored Avenger is just his body guard. It's what makes early Iron Man issues very interesting in seeing Tony struggle with the dual identities and wanting to just be Tony Stark. For this episode we cover the early days of Tony Stark/Iron Man, Tony's struggles with alcohol & Rhodey taking over, Armor Wars, the birth of the War Machine Armor and the unfortunate crossover The Crossing/Onslaught and Heroes Reborn. Just kidding...we don't cover Heroes Reborn cause it's garbage.  Next episode we'll pick up with Iron Man Volume 3 and the more modern takes on Iron Man. And after Endgame, we'll do a bonus episode where we'll go back and discuss the more memorable armors of Iron Man.

Movie Meltdown - Episode 371  This week we continue our Super Series with the latest Marvel Studios release - Doctor Strange. Plus we discuss how this version of the Doctor's story compares to the original comics as well as how it fits into the Marvel cinematic universe. And as we add Luke Cage into the ever expanding series of projects, we also mention... Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Guillermo del Toro, The Flash, Paul Reubens, his big pumkinhead looking self, that Joss Whedon feel, smart strong capable female characters, I just want everything on Netflix, Miss Congeniality, self-serving, Legends of Tomorrow, these villains are just as important as the heroes, Nightmare, M.C. Escher and Salvador Dalí, that good X-Men run, Fin Fang Foom, hyper-espionage, Stanley Kubrick, House of M, Misty Knight, Red Skull's daughter, hunting Strange, pivot toward Thanos, Iron Fist, Paul W.S. Anderson directed Event Horizon, Kevin Feige, Coke vs. Pepsi in the comics world, The Crow sequels and reboot, Rosario Dawson, they don't want to cross contaminate, singular stand-alone female heroes, the poor man's Ghost Rider, Benjamin Bratt, you don't really have to know it... you just have to believe that's the way it works, network television cop shows, Supergirl and a rampaging unicorn. Spoiler Alert: Spoilers for Doctor Strange, so see the movie before you listen. "...if they would have kept that... whole vibe, the whole movie. People would have just clocked out halfway through... and been like screw this." Special thanks to Gallery K, for more info go to: http://www.galleryk.net/

Also…us. Nextwave is a humorous comic book series by Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen, published by Marvel Comics between 2006 and 2007. The Nextwave series features a collection of minor Marvel superheroes: monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone; Monica Rambeau, the former Captain Marvel; Tabitha Smith, formerly of X-Force; Aaron Stack, the Machine Man; and new character the Captain, previously called Captain ☠☠☠☠ (the obscured words being so horrible that Captain America allegedly "beat seven shades of it out of [him]" and left him in a dumpster with a bar of soap in his mouth).[1] These individuals are assembled by H.A.T.E., the Highest Anti-Terrorism Effort, to fight Unusual Weapons of Mass Destruction (U.W.M.D.s). The Nextwave team learns that H.A.T.E. is funded by the Beyond Corporation©, an organization formerly known as terrorist group S.I.L.E.N.T. As a result, the heroes leave H.A.T.E., stealing a vehicle called the Shockwave Rider. They destroy the U.W.M.D.s that the Beyond Corporation and H.A.T.E. have hidden around the United States, while being pursued by H.A.T.E. Director Dirk Anger, a parody of Nick Fury.[2] The U.W.M.D.s include Fin Fang Foom,[3] Broccoli Men, Ultra Samurai,[4] and the Mindless Ones. Using the Shockwave Rider as a mobile base of operations (the vehicle is larger on the inside than out, much like the TARDIS of Doctor Who), Nextwave is able to rapidly mount missions in widely separated locations including central Illinois, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Nevada

E você ACHAVA que o ARGCAST ia deixar passar esse assunto? Mesmo tendo sido em Fevereiro, o ArgCast homenageia o REI DOS COMICS, o IMORTAL JACK KIRBY! No dia 6 de Fevereiro de 1994, (a 20 anos atrás) morria um dos maiores nomes (se não o maior) dos quadrinhos de super-heróis! A trajetória de Jacob Kurtzberg, o jovem judeu que aprendeu a desenhar sozinho e usou as HQs para lutar contra a pobre infância. Aquele que entrou em brigas para ajudar o colega de estúdio Will Eisner. Aquele que criou, junto com Joe Simon, o Capitão América! Inventor dos gênero dos quadrinhos de guerra, de romance, co-criador da Marvel Comics (sim, ele CO-CRIOU, juntamente com o lendário Stan Lee). O artista que misturou mitologia, ficção científica e aventura com os Novos Deuses e os Celestiais. Com casa cheia, venha dizer "HAIL TO THE KING" com Daniel HDR, Rogério DeSouza, Rodjer Goulart, Luis Garavello (Quadrim), Rafael Eunuco (BdE), Victor Vaughan (O Santuário), Zweist (Superamiches) e Bruno Costa (Cinecast).

This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by a Brand New Day--starring Barack Obama and decidedly not Mephisto-orchestrated--as well as some crap that Aaron made up about poor Oscar Hammerstein. A strong week for mini-series and one-shots holds up even under the yoke of a zillion Wolverines, and pretty art is everywhere. Fin Fang Foom and headless hookers excel.
