About this Episode

Marvel Comics released some of their most recent popular and critically acclaimed comics from their paywall and made them available for everyone to enjoy during the pandemic. They included but were not limited to a six issue run of Kelly Sue Deconnick's Captain Marvel, the first six issues of Ta-Nehisi Coates' Black Panther, Jane Foster as Thor, Tom King's irreverant take on Vison, and the introduction of Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel. This provided a perfect opportunity for Tony to catch up on some modern marvel comics and for Matt to revisit some recent favs. They discuss comic book reading habits, diversity of characters and creators, the difficulty of jumping into a new Marvel series with 50+ years of continuity, and the story telling potential of a limited issue series.
