Drunk on Comics Podcast 269: We saw Spider-Man: Homecoming Before Y’all
So as the title of this episode says, Josh, Linz and Tony all were invited to see the sneak preview of Spider-Man: Homecoming. And while they had a lot to say, Josh decided he wanted to be Spider-lame and sit this one out. While Linz and Tony tried to not give away too much of what they say, the beginning 15 minutes has them discussion a bit about the movie. So there is your spoiler warning.
Off the Shelf, Tony briefly talked about what Marvel is doing right with Secret Empire #5. While there is some of the same tropes being used with the dead coming back, the over all story is one of the better “events” they have done in a while. He also was sad to hear that The Flintstones comic has ended. He went over some of the themes portrayed in the series, and why it is one of the best comics in recent memory. Linz also reviewed an ending to a series with Jem and the Holograms #26. The characters will live on in other series, but the main one ended a few months ago and Linz wanted to share her joy and sadness over it.
The duo also talked about some thoughts from some directors. The new Hellboy movie is going to be darker and rated R. The Power Rangers hasn’t had the greatest box office return, and the director of that thinks it is because it was not pg. (Linz and Tony think it would have been way worse if it was)
Booze and a Book was Jem and the Holograms #26 and a Strawberry Short’s Cake from Shorts brewing.
