In this chilling episode, the nerds are tackling new comic reviews from new comic days 10/12 and 10/19. Prepare yourself for some in-depth discussion that moves from the ridiculous to the obscene featuring…
- Stealth raccoons
- Talking cat wizards
- Watchmans and Watchwomens
- Miraclemen and Mircalekids
- Old Man Namor?
- A Wakandan history lesson
- and a “tonal pastiche” of Peter Parker curing sick cells with the true nature of dream…or something?
As always, we’ll be using our rating system of “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It.” And yes, we get it…It’s an extremely loose and subjective rating system but we don’t know no better…

AXE: Judgment Day #6
Written by Kieron Gillen
