Welcome back Fireside faithful! Last week Ryan Reynolds let us down by announcing something big right as the show was going up, and this week is Todd Mcfarlane’s fault. Join Mendte, Mashko, Maurer, and Features as they jib jab about the latest Black Panther trailer with a much better look at Namor, Maurer laments further on his disappointment in Moon Knight since the writers proved they didn’t know the character, plus tries to guess what the Todd Father has in store for us today with his Spawn news, and Mendte finally gets to gush over the Deadpool 3 and Wolverine announcement, as well as how it could all fit into Avengers Secret Wars. This is a big one with surprising, yet expected takes. I’m sure you can guess. Welcome to Fireside!

Welcome back Fireside Faithful! Twerking Maurer! That will make sense when you hit play. It’s Wednesday dear firesider… so comics and current events are afoot. It’s time to bring it all together, find the cross-section, and try to make you all laugh while doing it! Join Mendte, Mashko, Baby Huey, Features, and go Ol’ Ry as they talk about the D23 casting rumors, a new DC multiverse, Aztec Batman, Power Rangers, Joker, Stargirl, and even the controversies around the “M She U”.

Greetings and salutations dear Firesiders, it’s that time once again. The Wednesday sun smiles upon us with the promise of new comics, new adventures, and new… well not really news… but a new show! Yeah… a new show. Join Mendte and Mashko as they hold down the fort with long-time Firesider, but newly named, Ry aka Felix Hergoood. Join the guys as they catch up on Game of Thrones’s House of the Dragon and She-Hulk, moving into D23 rumored MCU announcements and the Thunderbolts line up. The gents also talk about the more adult Batman animated series being shopped to other streaming services and a little Fear the Walking Dead. Lastly, Ry had something he wanted to talk about that he’s seen asked countless times in comments sections around the social webs (not from Maurer) - Did the MCU die with Iron Man? Are superhero movies going the way of the western as Steven Spielberg predicted? Here is what the guys have to say… I mean after you hit play… we’ll go ahead… Welcome to Fireside!
Welcome back Fireside family. The world of comic-related current events seems to be taking a trip back to the familiar isles of Westeros. Even with the House of Hulks showing the world they are more than just a courtroom sitcom, nothing grabs your attention like a dragon. Join Mendte, Mashko, Baby Huey, and Mr. Maurer as they talk about the premiers of both the Game of Thrones spinoff, House of Dragons, as well as the long-awaited premier of She-Hulk. To start things off we need to revisit the Dark Knights watch to see what else from Warner Brothers is on the Chopping block, namely Batman. Seems like the adult animated series may be headed to the same Ghaston Grey fate near the sea of Dorne. Maybe Sir Netflix or Lord Peacock may be the caped crusader's only hope. So Welcome to Fireside and of course, "Dracarys!"
Welcome back to the Chat Fireside Faithful! Today’s show is a little all over the place but to be honest… when isn’t it? So while you pick up your pull list, join our scatterbrained hosts for a grab back of topics, news, breakdowns, and reviews. Join Mendte, Maurer, and Mashko as they talk about the importance of recent MCU content on future readers, Super Pets and its surprising awesomeness, Vampire hunting in Netflix’s Day Shift, some D23 announcements, and then in a twist of fate, Features jumps in to get you prepared for Marvel’s big event Judgment Day! Who are the key players in the Avengers, X-Men, and Eternals, why are they fighting, and much more. So hit play of it would be considered a deviation and you may get judged. Welcome to Fireside.
Greetings and salutations Fireside Family! Wednesday is as unstoppable as the Juggernaut, and in its wake of mid-week lulls we have new comics, and of course… new news. Join Mendte, Mashko, Maurer, and Baby Huey as they talk about what comic-related things required a little chat. From more news about the great Warner Brothers Discover purge, shelving more than just Batgirl, to leaked set photos from Iron Heart, the new TMNT title, Sandman on Netflix, Prey on Hulu, and much much more. So grab your wakeboard and let up pull you through the Wednesday lull for like an hour or so. Welcome to Fireside.
It’s Wednesday once again my Fireside family, and while new comic books reign supreme, a little new news wouldn’t hurt either. Join Mendte, Mashko, and Maurer as they recap some of the week's biggest comic-related current events. From Amazon releasing Paper Girls, and HBOMax dropping season 3 of Harley Quinn, to Guardians Ho Ho Ho-ing around the Galaxy, Mutants on hold until 2025, and the DC film and TV lineup. So while you head out to pick up your pull list, we got plenty to talk about on the ride there. Hell, these new long issues, we have you covered on the way back as well. Welcome to Fireside.
WOW! San Diego Comic-Con is usually incredible, but there was something different about this one. It was almost like a rallying cry. Marvel proving there is a plan and to let go of your phase 4 woes, and DC set out to prove they are bigger than both the Snyderverse and Ezra Miller. Join Mendte, Mashko, Maurer, and Ian a.k.a. Shucky to break down the biggest moments from this year's Con. From Marvel announcing Phase 5 and 6 of the MCU, including a bunch of new shows and movies like the Thunderbolts, Daredevil, and 2 new Avengers Films, to DC showing us a new look at both Black Adam and Shazam, while purposefully ignoring the Flash. Not to mention John Wick, Dungeons and Dragons, Spawn, Groot, and so much more. So start the car and head to the comic shop, while we bring you Hall H along the way. Welcome to Fireside.
Welcome back Fireside Family, I think we need to start this issue off with an apology. Features tried to talk about San Diego Comic-Con and Marvel news and we were less than supportive. Now to be fair, at the time he didn’t know anything about what was coming, but we were less than supportive. He got the last laugh because these rumors are insane! Join Mendte, Mashko, and Maurer as they recap the insanity that will apparently happen at Hall H. From Deadpool updates, Hulk taking on the world, how Ms Marvel’s finale (queue nostalgic music) works with the supposed Inhumans rumors, Black Panther, Kang, a certain Fantastic Family getting a jawesome director, and so much more. Remember these are rumors, but even rumors are worth getting excited about if there is even the slightest chance they happen. Press play get hyped, and Welcome to Fireside!
Thor: Love and Thunder SPOILER Review
Welcome back Fireside Family and wow… do we have a doozy for you. This issue really got away from us. The plan was to spend a little time catching up on those comic-related current events before we spend the remainder of the issue reviewing Thor: Love and Thunder. We definitely did that. No question. 2 hours worth of that. Join Mendte, Maurer, Mashko, and Features as they talk about The Boys Finale, Andrew Garfield Spider-Man rumors, Marvel at SDCC, the Punisher, and more. Then Maurer dips and the rest of the gang loses all track of time and thoroughly breakdown Thor's latest big-screen outing. *SPOILER ALERT* How does it fit into the MCU? How did the tone shape the movie? We’re the Guardians, Jane, and Gorr done justice? What does this movie tell us about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? On Friday we will release just the review, so get to the theaters if you haven’t already as this is a spoiler-heavy review. Welcome to Fireside.
The boys are back in town Fireside faithful… well not THE Boys, because that’s on Fridays… I mean the guys who do this show… like Maurer.... Anyways, it’s Wednesday and those new comics go down easier with a dash of New News! Join Mendte, Maurer, Mashko, Features, and Baby Huey as they take your trip to the comic shop to the next level with some of this week's comic-related current events.
