WE’RE A WHOLE YEAR OLD! We’ve got a very special episode to celebrate our first year! We talk about the best of the ComicNoobs show, ask Sobie how it feels to be a comic-geek for a whole year, talk about our favorite comics we’ve covered on the show, and talk all about comic book movies. We also have a lightning round with Steve the producer, and give our thoughts on the state of DC’s Rebirth and the Post-Secret-Wars Marvel Universe and more!


Episode 49: Crossing the A**hole Line

Welcome to another episode of ComicNoobs! This week, we jump back into Civil War II as Marvel’s summer event heats up! We cover the first two issues of the X-Men tie-in book that pits Storm’s Extraordinary X-Men against Magneto’s Uncanny X-Men. The teams are divided by the question of the Inhumans; Are they enemies? Will Ulysses be used against the mutants? Can the X-Men afford to wait and find out? Find out in this episode! After that, we have another Who Would Win debate, as James Gavsie joins me to argue Black Panther vs Bane, featuring special guest moderator Dexter Arnold of the “Let’s Get Drunk and Talk Comics” Podcast (link below)! Finally, we get to Civil War II issue #4. Captain Marvel has the support of SHIELD, The Ultimates, and the Inhumans as she expands the reach and scope of her program to use the Inhuman Ulysses to prevent threats before they manifest. Unfortunately, this time, many heroes think she’s gone too far. Iron-Man’s attempts to de-escalate seem futile, and it looks like the heroes will go to war once again! See what happens in this week’s episode of ComicNoobs!

Civil War II – X-Men #1 (01:32)
Civil War II – X-Men #2 (15:42)
