Welcome to Two-Headed Nerd Episode #679: New Comic Reviews 9/7 and 9/14 ! In this episode, the nerds find themselves confronting a pile full of…
- Dog-shaped bipedal aliens
- All the Avengers getting outed (EDITOR’S NOTE: That’s NOT what that title means…)
- The return of the kinda sorta Midnight Suns but with a ‘U’ this time
- Kevin Smith’s dick and fart humor
- And even a Little Monsters reference from Joe who did NOT watch real horror films as a kid
As always we’ll be using our rating system of “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It,” which is obviously subjective as hell but feel free to start your podcast and come up with something better.
Plus, a new Uncle Joe’s Story Time!
This Week’s Reviews:
Then it’s time to talk about our must-read picks for next week’s new comics in the THN Sanctum Sanctorum:
Matt’s Pick for Next Week:
Stuff of Nightmares #1
Writer: R.L Stein
Artist: A. L. Caplan
Solicit: The premiere issue of a brand new four-issue limited comic book series from R.L Stine, the legendary author of Fear Street and Goosebumps, who’s back with a chilling new take on iconic creatures from horror legend in his first creator-owned comic book series, with chilling art by A.L. Kaplan (Maw, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller), colors by Roman Titov (Eat the Rich), and letters by Jim Campbell (Black Badge).
Joe’s Pick for Next Week:
Image Comics, $3.99
Written by Donnie Cates
Art by Ryan Stegman
From DONNY CATES (GOD COUNTRY, Hulk, Thor), RYAN STEGMAN (VENOM, King in Black), JP MAYER (Absolute Carnage, Fantastic Four), SONIA OBACK (Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, Han Solo), and JOHN J. HILL (CROSSOVER, Harley Quinn), the all-star creative team that brought you VENOM, comes an all-new take on the classic hero’s quest!
Oliver Harrison was a mythical hero who slayed the greatest threat to his realm before even hitting puberty. But that was then.
As an adult, Oliver leads an average cookie-cutter suburban life—aside from the fact that he’s mentally unstable, massively paranoid, smokes like a chimney, and gets blackout drunk every night to hide from his horrific nightmares. Will the arrival of a superhero team called the Prestige prove the madness isn’t all in Oliver’s head? And what about all the epic fantasy crap from his childhood?
Join us for a brutal as hell tale of magical worlds, gifted youth, evil sorcerers, superheroes, war, blood, guts, and death that punches you right in the face!
