SPOILERS: This episode contains spoilers for the Disney Plus Special Werewolf by Night near the 01:07:00 mark Werewolves are scary! Nights are scary! Werewolves by Nights must be scarier! Especially if you spell Night with a “K”. Boogity Books and Beer-Tober continues this episode as KMac and Yek spook up on those two topical Disney+ characters: Werewolf by Night and Moon Knight. You many not know this but they’ve kinda met a few times before. But did you know it was because of fat, old rich guys? Thought not & that’s why it’s so scary. Werewolf by Night #32-#33: Silicon Valley, Hollywood, Werewolves: California’s economic engines. $10,000 sounds like good bread to take down a werewolf until you realize you’re walking around in $200,000 of silver.

Moon Knight #29-#30: Man, who would have thought Satanist would be so mad up to catch a werewolf and have the tech skills to make awesome wrist guns? Luckily for all, hypnosis works on half-man, half-wolf combos. Fully body pressing old, rich dudes off NYC roofs is a good way to let out the angst. Marc Spector: Moon Knight #52-#53 (#50-#51 Interludes): Oh, mon ami, there’s Loup-Garou in Le Maison de Spector and I like his stylish leather vest. C’est bon. Time for a menage a trois fight wit’ Remy as the bouillabaisse. Better get to Central Park where all the weird stuff goes down with hell-spawnish things.

There are bites, Hebrews, monogramed scarfs, and Misty Knight’s beers. Uncanny X-Men Annual #6: Wait, we thought Dracula got over his Storm-y heart stake blues. The X-Men should’ve of known better. Luckily, Cyclops can just start blastin’. What If #24 (Vol. 2): Wolverine is the MF’N Lord of the Vampires & the Punisher gets to be Sorcerer Supreme. You read all that right and it is that awesome.
