Dave and Rachelle invite you to read along with them all summer! Each episode of the podcast will focus on a different book. Here is the painstakingly curated list!
 

June 29th

Kingdom Come (DC)

By Mark Waid and Alex Ross

This classic DC Elseworlds title turned twenty this year! A fascinating, and very thorough, glimpse into the possible future of DC's superheroes with hyper-realistic Alex Ross art, this book is as legendary as the heroes within.

July 6th

The Amazing Spider-Man:
The Original Clone Saga (Marvel)

By Gerry Conway and Ross Andru

There was a time when clones weren't the worst thing that ever happened to Spider-Man comics. This mid-seventies run by Gerry Conway and Ross Andru is one of Dave's favourite Spider-Man stories, and Rachelle hasn't read it before!

July 13th

Wilson (D&Q)

By Daniel Clowes

Soon to be a major motion picture! Dave and Rachelle both remember really liking this book when it first came out in 2010. Time to revisit it!

July 20th

Batman: Hush (DC)

By Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee

It's the book you want to hate but can't! It's a crazy epic Batman story from 2002-03 with ALL THE GUYS!!! And all the Batman kissing Catwoman!!! 

July 27th - WEEK OFF WHILE DAVE IS AT SDCC!!!

Aug 3rd

Doctor Strange: The Oath (Marvel)

By Brian K Vaughan and Marcos Martin

A great little Doctor Strange story by an all-star team from way back in 2006. This is a really good introduction to the character, so we thought it would be a good idea to talk about it before the Doctor Strange movie comes out later this year.

August 10th

COPRA: Round One (Bergen Street Press)

By Michel Fiffe

Dave describes COPRA as Suicide Squad fanfic. Written, drawn and originally self-published by Cuban-American artist Michel Fiffe, this is our pick for the week the Suicide Squad movie hits theatres.

August 17th

Cosmic Odyssey (DC)

By Jim Starlin and Mike Mignola

Just a really cool story from 1988 with New Gods and Justice League members and amazing art by a young Mike Mignola. And, as Dave points out, one of the best and most important John Stewart stories ever.

August 24th

Batgirl/Robin: Year One (DC)

By Chuck Dixon, Scott Beatty, Marcos Martin and Javier Pulido

This is actually two separate series, Batgirl: Year One (2003) and Robin: Year One (2001), that were recently collected together into one big book. They are both excellent, and adorable, and beautifully drawn. Both of these stories are fantastic 'gateway' comics for new readers. 

August 31st

Captain America: Man Without a Country (Marvel)

By Mark Waid and Ron Garney

It was not easy choosing a Captain America story for this book club, but Rachelle has never read this mid-nineties Mark Waid/Ron Garney run in its entirety, so this will be fun!

DC: The New Frontier (DC)

By Darwyn Cooke

We don't ever need an excuse to read The New Frontier, but certainly now having lost Darwyn we really wanted to revisit this incredible book.
