Episode 12: Black Widow Babies

This week, the boys spend a good amount of time talking about Avengers: Age of Ultron (spoilers included). Despite online commenter opinion, Too Many Comics loves Black Widow -- her roles in the many movies, her Nathan Edmondson/Phil Noto comic and her future endeavors.

We review Valiant's Dead Drop #1 and continue praise for Jeff Lemire's Descender. Also, Secret Wars remains a mystery, even after reading the Free Comic Book Day special and first issue.

Comics discussed: Dead Drop, Rocket Girl, Descender, Hip Hop Family Tree, Bob's Burgers, All New/All Different Avengers, The Big Con Job

Next week's #1s:

  • Injection #1 (Image) - Once upon a time, there were five crazy people, and they poisoned the 21st Century. Now they have to deal with the corrosion to try and save us all from a world becoming too weird to support human life. INJECTION is the new ongoing series created by the acclaimed creative team of Moon Knight. It is science fiction, tales of horror, strange crime fiction, techno-thriller, and ghost story all at the same time. A serialized sequence of graphic novels about how loud and strange the world is getting, about the wild future and the haunted past all crashing into the present day at once, and about five eccentric geniuses dealing with the paranormal and numinous as well as the growing weight of what they did to the planet with the Injection.
  • Mantle #1 (Image) - Robbie never asked for any of this. While drunkenly walking home from a punk show, he's hit with lightning and wakes to find that he's been chosen as the new host for The Mantle, a power set of unimaginable scope. Despite his lack of interest, he's forced into action. The Plague, a being who has spent 50 years killing every previous host of The Mantle, is already coming for him.
