It's been over a year since Shadowhawk issues 1 & 2 were acquitted of 90s era awfulness. So with 40 episodes under his belt, will host Nathaniel Wayne be as forgiving as last time? Keep in mind that an acid drooling green insectoid alien lizard thing has been added to the mix.

In this one we go for something a bit more superfluous and fun. Nathaniel Wayne and Ryan Daly consider what franchises that have no business crossing over would be really fun to mash together.

It's time for some more Spider-man and this time host Nathaniel Wayne is tackling two back to back issues that wrap up the 6 part Invasion of the Spider Slayers arc. Can only the last two issues successfully give a satisfying read for somebody who doesn't have the first four? We'll find out.

Another look ahead, but this time Nathaniel Wayne and his guest Ryan Daly are looking further ahead than the next three months and focusing (at first) on the X-Men franchise.

The spirit of vengeance graces 90s Comics Retrial with his presence. And he's bringing along three villains, two sidekicks and a random woman in an alleyway along for the ride. Host Nathaniel Wayne takes a look at whether all of this can be juggled properly.

The X-men related books so far have had the weakest showing on this podcast. Add to that, host Nathaniel Wayne's only other encounter with an "Unlimited" title was the abomination of Fantastic Four Unlimited #1. It's hard to stay optimistic, but let's see what happens.

So the DCEU movies, as produced by Warner Bros, seem to be in a bit of a state lately. So let's have two guys with no actual experience in filmmaking but who really love Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest, ramble on about it and see what can be salvaged.

After having to thoroughly thrash his work back in Episode 7, host Nathaniel Wayne thought he was done with Rob Liefeld. He was wrong. Can he survive this second go with the Prince of Pouches? Or will he finally snap and lose his mind? Tune in to find out!

A monstrous reptile has escaped capture. A crazed bounty hunter has kidnapped a child. An overworked photographer should REALLY be staying home to be with his wife, but instead is putting on red pajamas to deal with all of it.

Long before it was made into a video game so bad that people got sued over it (seriously,) a story about the Colonial Marines of the Aliens universe was brought forth by Dark Horse comics. It's pretty well remembered but will it hold up or was it just the best that could be gotten at the time?

As the comics jump over 100 years into the future... things don't seem to have changed much for the mutants of the world. Host Nathaniel Wayne takes a look at how EXTREME the future can be with this first look at the 2099 line of books.

A cold has bumped the planned evisceration of another 90s comic so instead host Nathaniel Wayne rips into some extremely 90s print advertisements. Because it's easier and the guy's sick, cut him some slack.

With November seeing the release of two major films involving magic users, host Nathaniel Wayne brought in Ryan Daly to talk about... a bunch of movie wizards that weren't either of the ones with new movies.

Todd McFarlane's hellbound hero is back (or at least his title is back in the rotation of this podcast,) and this time McFarlane brought in some help in the form of legendary writer Alan Moore. So fittingly, host Nathaniel Wayne recruits the assistance of legendary skinflint, Professor Alan Middleton to take a look a this tour of Spawn's version of Hell.

A slight change of pace in the covering of Spider-Man as host Nathaniel Wayne takes his first look at an issue from the "Spectacular" line. One featuring the X-Men no less. What mighty villain could possible require these titans of Marvel to team up? Well give a listen and find out for yourself!

Marvel dipped into its stable of horror titles in the 90s, which saw the revival of the "Living Vampire" (which is not distinguished in any notable way from a garden variety vampire) known as Morbius. Host Nathaniel Wayne brings in Ryan Daly to see if this vamp should be allowed to stalk the night or if he should just be staked and beheaded to end the pain for everybody involved.

Luke Cage has punched his way through Netflix with only a bullet riddled hoodie left in his wake. Nathaniel Wayne brings in Ryan Daly and Paul Scavitto to dissect, debate and throw punches over what was good and what didn't work. Well maybe not that last part. They're not in good enough shape for that kind of thing.

Host Nathaniel Wayne revisits his personal comic book collection. This time he takes a look at the odd case of X-Men comics based on the X-Men cartoon based on X-Men comics. It's three issues reviewed for the price of one!

Writer/artist Mike Grell was one of many comics creators who were swept up in Image's promise of creator control. His contribution was Shaman's Tears and podcast host Nathaniel Wayne takes a look at this odd mix of native mythology and sci-fi genetics.

Picking up on a thread left by the mega-sized issue #365, Spider-Man's parents have suddenly turned up and are far less dead than originally advertised. Host Nathaniel Wayne takes a look at this story and sees what villainy might be afoot!

Sep 7, 2016

After a summer of movies that could most charitably be called a mixed bag, Nathaniel Wayne brings in Ryan Daly so the two of them can pick through the rubble and try to figure out what franchises can come back from weak showings and what ones should just be put into shallow graves.

Host Nathaniel Wayne tackles one of his very few issues involving the seminal team, the Fantastic Four. But since he can't even really fake being even slightly learned on this group, he brought in one half of the Fantasticast in the form of Andrew Leyland to help. And boy, is help needed.
