Episode 1: Appropriate Level of Destruction

Hello and welcome to MATT AND CAT HAVE BACK ISSUES!

Episode #1: Appropriate Level of Destuction or ALOD!

Matt and Cat have joined forces to battle the evil that is bland comic discussion. Our mission: To talk about Comic Books and Comic related topics…In this first episode we focus on Marvel’s THE AVENGERS!  We both saw the movie on Friday, adding to it’s big box office numbers, and we came together to discuss our thoughts for PANEL TO PROJECTOR, the segment where we review a movie and see how it fared jumping from the panel pages to the big screen.

After that we picked up a few of our Back Issues of THE AVENGERS from the 80’s and 90’s for some RELATED READING.  During our comic discussion we cover a lot of Marvel character history and both agreed about how much we dislike Rob Liefeld’s artwork!


Who has legs like that...Seriously?

From there we introduce our segment known as MARKETING MONSTROSITIES and take a look at a few unusual ads found within the comics of our collection.  Remember this craziness?:

humongous rock star of the universe Join Cap On Broadway!

Take a listen for the full comic book related nonsense that Matt and Cat have to offer!  We have a ton of Back Issues that need to see the light of day once more!  Keep on reading comics, as that’s what we plan to do!

    I’m sure you’ve figured out by now but Hulk says “Puny God” to Loki after demoloshing him.
