As the Invincible TV series take the small screen world by storm on Amazon Prime, Marc and Remso dive into the first two volumes of the Invincible comic book by Robert Kirkman. Before he revolutionized the comic book and television worlds with "The Walking Dead", Kirkman introduced a brand new superhero title through Image Comics after pitching the concept to Erik Larsen. What seems like a standard superhero title at first quickly turns into something much wilder and crazier, and sends the reader down an unpredictable journey. This book holds a special place in Marc's heart as it got him super excited about comics again. Along the way, Remso gets a lesson in 80's sitcoms!

Remso and Marc cover the Invincible Iron Man “Extremis” storyline (issues 1 through 6) from legendary comic book writer Warren Ellis, which not only updated Tony Stark’s origin, but propelled the armored avenger from being just another superhero to being the focal point of the Marvel Universe

Stormwatch was the second major comic book - Jim Lee’s WildCATS - to come out of Lee’s Wildstorm Studios under the Image banner. By 1996 both books were floundering, Lee turned to some comic writing legends to try to turn them around, bringing in Alan Moore on WildCATS and Warren Ellis on Stormwatch. Ellis’ Stormwatch would redefine the book entirely, bringing a more political, nuanced take to the team, and would pave the way for the critically acclaimed The Authority series afterward. In this week’s episode, Marc and Remso break down Ellis’ unique take that completely turned around this floundering comic book.

Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame are Marvel’s highest grossing MCU movies to date, and Thanos’ quest to collect the infinity gems had been building since his first film appearance in the post-credits of 2012’s Avengers. But the genesis of this storyline first began nearly twenty years earlier, within Marvel’s Infinity Gauntlet mini-series. Marc and Remso discuss this epic event, and how it paved the way for the Marvel films to deliver an equally epic onscreen version. They break down Thanos as a lovelorn villain, and the fallout from the storyline that is still influential in both cinema and comic books.

Deathember continues on Second Print Comics! There once was a time when the death of major characters still mattered in comic books - and even more so in the case of DC Comics of the late '80's when The Flash, Supergirl and Jason Todd's Robin all died - and stayed dead (at least for the time being...). In 1992, amid slagging sales and a delayed wedding storyline, DC editorial decided to do the unthinkable - and kill Superman. Marc and Remso take a look at this storyline that spanned every Superman comic book and brought scores of new fans into DC comics - including a young Marc Clair.

Grab a tissue box true believers, Remso and Marc breakdown “Fallen Son: the Death of Captain America.”
