It's April Fool's Week, ladies and germs, and that means The Book Report #96 is part of the site-wide podcast change-up. The Comedy Channel blokes from the This Is REALLY Happening podcast take over The Book Report to bust out their vast comic knowledge and experience on all y'all.
Sax Carr and Tim Powers give us their perspective on funnybooks you should take a look at, such as The Lone Ranger, Archie Comics' reinvention of Li'l Jinx as a young adult graphic novel Jinx, Image Comics' Moriarty, Hypno Comics' Comic Book Junkies, Skullkickers #13, Venom, Secret Avengers, Thunderbolts, and, of course, the huge event of the week that is Avengers vs. X-Men. However, since that's such a big deal, your usual co-host Iann Robinson pops in to talk about AvX as well, to preserve his streak of being on every Book Report podcast since the beginning. We're almost at 100 here, and that's a nice round number – too irresistible, even for a fun holiday stunt.
In the meantime, you can check Iann and I trying our hands at This Is Really Happening #58 this week as well, wherein we try to be funny and tend to err on the side of ranty instead, much to the chagrin of Powers/Carr. We discuss "the bacon coffin." Which is a thing that exists.
