It was 25 years ago this year that DC started the story line that would become a major media event – The Death of Superman.
Jon and I start the podcast talking about what we remember when those issue that came out leading up to the actual death of Superman and the subsequent “Reign of Supermen” comics that would follow in it’s wake (is this a pun? Maybe.).
After that, we focus on the recently released Marvel Comic Event – Legacy #1. This was written by Jason Aaron with art by Esad Ribic, Steven McNiven and many more!
Jon and I review that story lines of the first issue and prognosticate on the future of this miniseries and what Marvel is planning to do with all the Avenger/Spider-man family of books.
At the end of the Podcast, we give a shout out for Nick Spencer and his swan song to Captain America with the Generations: The Americas one shot.
Jon and I are reviewing 2 things this week: Captain America: Steve Rogers and the new mini-series and summer event Secret Empire.
For those not reading Captain America: Steve Rogers, you are missing some of the key elements that lead into understanding what is happening in Secret Empire (like understanding why Magneto would want to join Hydra). Do you have to read it before you read Secret Empire? No.
What I do at the start of the Podcast is give you a high level breakdown of what you need to know from issues 1 – 16 of Captain America: Steve Rogers in order to better understanding of the choices Steve Rogers in making in Secret Empire. PS – there will be spoilers. I also want to give my opinion of what I think of Cap as a Hydra Agent since I am a long time Captain America fan.
After that, Jon goes into talking about issues 0 and 1 of Secret Empire.
Jon reviews some of the story elements without giving too much away in both issues and then gives his opinion on if you should read it or not.
