OK, the Gauntlet has been thrown!
With the release of Avengers: Infinity War in theaters this weekend, the guys at the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! thought it would be appropriate to dive into the back issue boxes and re-read the classic mini-series from 1991, The Infinity Gauntlet. So much of what happens in the new Avengers movie gets its start with this story, so this is the perfect time to revisit one of Jim Starlin’s epic tales, with a fine assist on art by the likes of George Perez and Ron Lim.
In addition, we have our weekly Pick 3 for next week, sponsored by our good friends at Clint’s Comics. It should come as no surprise that John picked a Superman book and Jerry picked the new Avengers book. But you never quite know what Cullen is going to pick. Listen in and find out!
Speaking of picks, we also have drawn a name for the Action Comics #1000, signed by Brian Michael Bendis. Thank you to everyone that sent in their entry and their Superman story. Big congrats to fan Jeff Johnson – your comic is in the mail!
