Boy, is Tee mad about the brain archetype in media! After a significant rant (a mini key issue?), we get to some juicy X-Men spoilers in our review of House of X #2. We round out with a handful of new indie titles, including the spectacular Coffin Bound #1.
(SPOILER ALERT! House of X Spoilers from 16:54-28:41)
It's sad Paper Girls is over, but we're happy it happened.
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 31, 2019
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 recent history of Marvel's X-Men (and then some).
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 24, 2019
Hope you're ready to get bombarded with a whole bunch of brand new Marvel #1's! From Valkyrie and Sword Master, to Hickman's highly-anticipated House of X, we're breaking it all down in a super long episode filled with Marvel history you may or may not have ever cared about knowing. Excelsior!
There ain't no such thing as werewuffs!
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 17, 2019
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!
A how-to and how-not-to on writing female characters.

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!)
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!
Episode 32 - Everyone's Favorite Dave, AND TWINS, Graphic Novelties: My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies
Comics aren't the only thing we read!
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 19, 2019
Chris shares some interesting new indie number 1's, while Tee wraps up DC's Goddess Mode (albeit a little... overwhelmed). The news is a little light this week, but we do get a good chuckle over some savage marketing by Marvel.
We wrap up this week with a brand new segment called Graphic Novelties, where we discuss and review "My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies," an OGN by Ed Brubaker.
Our review of the new Marvel/Fox film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix!
Well, despite the hate and hostility from incoming reviews, we decided to brave the theater and wade our way though the final film in Fox's X-Men series. And it was... a movie!
If you like it, you should put a ring on it, Marvel.
Weekly Pull Highlights: May 29, 2019
This week, DC comes in with a 4-hit combo of awesome stories and leaves Chris broken and abused. Luckily, Tee is there to discuss some other comics while he gets up and ices his bruised readin' eyes.
In the news, we got more Tom King, more Deadpool, more Sonic the Hedgehog.... Wow, things tend to repeat, huh? Also info on the Avengers game coming out of Square Enix and we briefly talk E3!
Finally, Tee raises a key issue about Marvel and their lack of commitment. Seriously, guys, we just want to know what we are to you. We want a label, we don't just want to be some podcasters you know. This is real, we can feel it!
....wait, that's not what she meant by commitment? Haha, yeah.... I knew that all along..... totally....
