It’s the end of the year, which means we’ve compiled our favorites and least favorites of 2019! It was a pretty packed year, so things might shake out differently than you’d expect! Not only that, but Phil and Darryl dive into Superman: Grounded, and walk away from that long walk feeling pretty good.
Yesterday was Christmas, but now it’s time to look towards the future. I mean, let’s live in the past! As part of our annual Back Issues tradition, we make Phil and Darryl read a book we covered in our FIRST EPISODE EVER. Marvel’s Civil War! By our nothing-but-problematic-fave Mark Millar! We actually liked it a lot two years ago, but does it hold up to our comic newbie hosts?
We also pick our favorites and least favorite books we covered in 2018 and hoo boy, for four boys with no honor, we sure have a lot of honorable mentions.
In this episode, Sly wants to regulate the Speed Boys of the world, Phil prefers the Millar Universe to the Marvel one, Ryan is proud of Phil for the first time in his life, and Darryl is the only one saddened by the mindless slaughter of Z-list villains.
Hey y’all, it’s Christmas week so I’ll keep it short. We made Phil and Darryl revisit Wanted, a book we covered before they were on the show. The book’s terrible, but listen to our old episode here first to get a plot rundown. Or if you’re using a podcast app, it was episode 12.
We also cover our favorites and least favorite books of the year! See you in 2018! And make sure you tell Mark Millar to come fight us!
