As Marvel's First Family returns to your LCS shelves, so to does this show's book discussions return to your earbuds! Mike and Greg dive deep into the first issue of Slott & Pichelli's run on "Fantastic Four", taking its measure both as a single issue but also its place in the grander FF tapestry. Does Slott have the chops to handle The World's Greatest Comic Magazine? What particular aspect of Pichelli's work really made an impression on the lads? Should this really have been an issue of "Marvel Two-in-One"? Which of the other "Fantastic Four" #1's does this share the closest resemblance to? All that, plus favorite issues of the past, how hothead is too hothead for Johnny, series blindspots, and more!

This episode originally aired June 17, 2017.

The book club discussions return after a year-long hiatus with this look at two similar but divergent Elseworld tales from DC Comics. Featuring powerhouse art teams (Mignola/Russell and Jones/Jones III) with undeniably appealing high concepts (Batman vs Jack the Ripper & Batman vs Dracula), both books stand as templates for how to do Elsewhere stories right...but take completely different paths getting there. Throw in a mystery third book and you have a talk covering such topics as the lasting impact of Zorro on Batman, Elseworlds vs ‘What Ifs?’, scary sexy body horror heroics, the refreshing naïveté of Bruce Wayne, red herrings & red sons, 19th century Gotham newspapers running front page stories in Kryptonese, and more.
