Well now, how about THAT! We made to episode #100, and it's all thanks to you, our amazing listeners. This episode is a bit of a long one, but it's because we have some really great books this week that dive into some really intense themes. And lord knows, we can't pass up a chance to go hyper analytical... it's just what we do.
Kamala Khan deserves ALL the screen time.
Surprise! It's us, from the past, talking to you, in the present... our future... or... okay, we forgot to post it last week. But hey, here we are with our review of the relatively recently released Marvel's Avengers (we played on PS4). We lay out what's good, what's not as good, and our hope for what they can do to make it better. Also, can we please get a little more hype for a game focused on Kamala Khan? She. Is. Awesome.
I don't think the Avengers were expecting that.

The much anticipated Empyre #1 is finally here and it's got a heckin' twist that you won't (or totally will) see coming! We've also got DnD inside jokes galore, and an incredible new Dynamite title you don't want to miss. Also, leave my teenage online diary alone.
Horror tropes and some not-so-tropey horror.

It's beginning to look a lot like new comics in here! From new beginnings, to quality endings, we've got everything from Star Wars, to alien planets, to potential reboots galore. Things are finally starting to feel a little more business as usual, but we still hope you're safe and sound. Join us for more, NEW, Cover B!

It's something special to witness when writers are allowed to build characters however they damn well please. This week, Mike Mignola holds no punches when it comes to playing our heartstrings in the new Frankenstein: Undone, while Ed Brisson brings us back to the wastelands of Old Man Logan in his new title. Plus, Leah Williams makes Dr. Strange a grumpy, old curmudgeon, which is really all I've ever wanted out of the character (he's just so sassy!).
Um, yes, I DO want some gin for Christmas.
What do you buy the nerdy grown-up in your life who has everything? Let us give you some ideas!

Superheroes aren't often good for goodness sake.

Now that you've eaten all the food and spent all the money, let's talk some comics! From a holiday-slaughter in The Crow: Hard the Herald one-shot, to another kind of slaughter in Avengers #27, there's a whole lot of doom and gloom about. At least the Fantastix are here to remind us what being a hero is all about (hint - it's not always murder!).
It's sad Paper Girls is over, but we're happy it happened.

We kick off this episode with a quick review of some of the deleted scenes from Avengers: Endgame, but swoop right into a slew of DC Annuals that came out this week! It was an awesome week for comics, from big Batman title releases, to brand new books from Cullen Bunn, to the end of an era with the last issue of Paper Girls. Oh, and we maybe share a little more about ourselves than you wanted to know - no regrets.
A brand new format, just for you!

Howdy and welcome to the new and improved Cover B (a podcast that is by all definitions still new so calling it new and improved seems a little redundant).
Going forward, there is gonna be more content regularly with less content per episode. Episodes will focus essentially on one theme or type of topic instead of three or more. We explain it all in the intro.
As for comics this week, we discuss the endings to Batman Damned, War of the Realms and its various tie-ins and Age of X-Man X-Tremists. We also discuss two adorably heart-warming independent titles: Canto and Steel Cage.
Thanks for listening!
Conventions can be for everyone, with a little preparation.
