Full disclosure before you even start listening to this episode: we spend a good amount of time talking this week about things that have nothing to do with #13. It’s not that this issue is utter garbage. It’s, at the very least, better than #12, but those of you who listened to last week’s episode know that the bar was very low.
In addition to giving an honest review of John Romita’s second attempt at bat, we discuss internet conspiracy theories that revolve around animated Disney films, whether Captain America could whip Wolverine’s ass in a fight, and why a twelve-year-old would start talking like an infant just because he’s left to fend for himself in the jungle. Rodney also insults best-selling novelist Dan Brown.
Finally, check behind the cut for our individual grades for this issue and take some time to view the artwork and images that we discuss in the episode!
Our individual grades improve this time around, but not by much. Kyle gives it a D. Rodney is only slightly more generous than Kyle, allowing John Romita’s artwork to give his grade a slight bump to a D+. Aaron gives it a C -. Overall average: D+.
Be sure to check in next week for images and commentary for issue #14, the final issue of this three-part story arc!
