Issue #166: “Han(s) off the Merchandise” (Solo: A Star Wars Story; Thundercats Roar; Spider-man #800 and a Summer comics preview)
It’s the Summer movie blockbuster season and your Super Friends are left with some tough choices! With so many films to choose from, did we manage to find time for Solo: A Star Wars story, amid its lukewarm reception, both critically and at the box-office? Plus, we talk how this film sets the stage for future movies set in that Galaxy Far-Far-Away! * You didn’t have to grow up as a fan of the Thundercats to have some type of strong opinion in reaction to the news of Cartoon Network’s upcoming reboot entitled Thundercats Roar! We talk about if the choice to alienate your older, lifelong ‘Cats fans in favor of appealing solely to children is a gamble worth making * The Super Show has come full circle! In our very first episode, the very first news story we covered dealt with the death of Peter Parker in Spider-man #700, and now, over 160 episodes later, we preview what promises to be another monumental issue with Spider-man #800! It’s writer Dan Slott’s swan song and it’s our chance to reflect on how far Spidey and our Super Show has come since 2013!
… All this, plus more superhero movie news and debate!
