Black Friday is crazy. I’ll just start with that. Eric and I were lined up outside our local comic shop at 4am this morning for the chance to partake in half priced comics and trades. And we got some cool stuff. Myself? I took on the Grant Morrison Animal Man run on Vertigo. Eric? A bunch of Invincible, among other things. We both managed to pick up a copy of the IDW TMNT 2012 Annual, which hit the streets at a whopping $8.99 a couple of weeks ago. I mean, it’s bound like a trade, but it feels a lot better to get it for $4…
It was with this air of deals and the outrageous celebration of commercial spending that I was hit with the following idea: Why the hell not post up two episodes? Are you guys worth it? Certainly. So, given we have a good number of these in the can, I was able to wipe the crust from my eyes and make it so.
Episode 3 finds us covering Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vol.1 #3. We also manage to rope in Slenderman somehow. That cat is scary. For real scary.
Episode 4 covers the Mirage Raphael Micro-Series #1. A classic. Also discussed: Ryan’s honeymoon at the Holocaust museum and the changes coming up in Marvel’s Now initiative.
One thing you may notice is some pretty dated talk during the intro to these episodes. This is once again due to the fact that we have a good number of these episodes already done and are trying to get live by releasing episodes more often than we record them. So, enjoy your trip back in time as we marvel over the new TMNT cartoon theme song (Episode 3) and discuss the aforementioned Marvel Now… then.
