    July 12, 2021 1:47 pm I will add to what Josh said on the podcast regarding wanting to see more mind blowing action from Black Widow. I recently re-watched Iron Man II and pleasantly had forgotten this was the first appearance of Black Widow. I would propose that the fight sequence she has in that movie was more impressive than anything she did in her own movie. I’m kinda with Josh in that I was a little underwhelmed with her action sequences specifically. Overall loved the movie but coulda used 50% more family time and 50% less action.
    December 31, 2020 4:06 pm Wow, just realized there was another Marvel/DC crossover I had missed. https://youtu.be/WVf1mYroqoM
    December 24, 2020 12:38 pm Big shout out to Connor for adding Holiday Inn to our Christmas list. Watched it last night and it has earned a spot in the top 10 (well, co-shared with White Christmas). Never knew this existed so thanks for the assist and Merry Christmas!
    December 23, 2020 6:43 pm I LITERALLY watched the American’s episode with the body in the suitcase episode only a few hours after listening to this episode (kismet?). I thought of Josh after every snap, crackle, and pop!
    December 27, 2019 11:29 am I assume no mention of the Watchmen as hopefully you are going to do a special edition on the show (please!)
    December 1, 2019 9:56 pm Great booksplode. I have yet to go back and plow through FF from start to finish but this was a great way to hit some of the highlights. As an aside, I knew Ben chomped on his cigars but apparently he delved into the ciggys as well (#48, page 14, panel 3). PS Byrne did draw your typical craggy Thing but Reed turned him back to the slagging look when trying to return him to Ben Grimm form in FF 238.
    November 30, 2019 10:31 am Another tangential Galactus moment worth reading is FF 261/262 “The Trial of Reed Richards”

    February 4, 2019 7:13 am The Hawkeye/Mockingbird mini series that preceded WCA was a pretty cool run, and in that series Clint has to fight Mockingbird who is under mental control by the villian. The only way Clint could avoid similar mind control was to put the head of his sonic arrow in his mouth to dwarf the mind control signal. He beats his wife, saves the day, but with the aforementioned side-effect of becoming mostly deaf.
    January 12, 2019 9:59 am Not sure where I would post the random question, so will throw it out here and see what I get: I finally have some time to delve back into the back issues of some great series and need some help. Guardians I am good, but I also want to dive into Thunderbolts which I have never read but have heard y’all rave about years ago. If one were to jump in at a random point, what run of 12-24 issues would you recommend to get a great sense of how good the series was? Looking for a reco, thanks!
