In This Episode!
Excelsior, ReNerders! In this week’s episode, Matt and Chris go into the past and into the future (sort of…) of Marvel Comic via Marvels and Earth X. They spend a lot of time talking about the huge boners they have for the art of Alex Ross, Matt chides Chris for not liking the art of Jack Kirby (and Chris tries to defend himself from the claim), and they discuss the weirdness of terrible 90s movies having amazing 90s soundtracks.
Get your Kirby Krackle ready, friends, and enjoy the episode that brings ReNerding into its teen years.
