Back Issue Comic Reviews from the Cosmic Longbox return with a look at the many personas of Kang and the madness of MODOK!

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania hits theaters this weekend, so the CLB has the Nerds digging through the archives to create EIGHT back issue comic reviews and learn more about the MCU’s new featured villains Kang and MODOK! Matt is on Kang duty and Joe will be handling Mr. MODOK so get ready for a ton of “big-ass-head” jokes.  As usual, the Nerds will be using their “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It” rating system, which wouldn’t make sense in any timeline…
