We’re getting into another classic comic discussion, friends, this week looking at perhaps the greatest Marvel crossover of all time: The Infinity Gauntlet. The boys look at the roots of Thanos’s story, through the epic series and its crossovers, and at the books that spun out after the series was over. Was this a crossover so good that it ruined crossovers for us since then? In the picks this week, Chase picks Planet Skaar Prologue, Blake loved Wonder Woman #32, and Mike was into Brave and the Bold #23. This week’s graphic novel: Silver Surfer: The Rebirth of Thanos.
It’s been 100 episodes, and they said it wouldn’t last! For their Centennial Celebration, Blake, Chase and Kenny camp out at BSI Comics on the first New Comic Day of the year! The guys tell the Secret Origin of the podcast, Blake gives you 2 in 1 Showcase By the Numbers, the guys read a lot of your e-mails, chat with the staff and customers, and get into a bitter debate over the original leader of the Voltron force! Because that’s how we roll. Also, beginning this week, we’re asking you guys to write in with your own Picks of the Week! Thanks to Robert Willing for the suggestion, and for giving us the first pick! In the regular picks, Chase dives into the back issue bin for Swamp Thing #37-39, Blake finds himself enjoying Ender’s Shadow: Battle School #1, and Kenny loved the Justice Society of America Kingdom Come Special: Magog one-shot.
