052 The Avengers

9/10/2022
Ian and Iain assemble their thoughts on The Avengers (2012) also known as Marvel's Avengers Assemble in the UK (to avoid confusion with a TV series from the 1960's that they thought people assume was showing at cinemas for some reason). To accompany it, they're reading The Ultimates by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch, so Ian can prove, once and for all, how little of the MCU is taken from those comics. Also WHYBUTL? returns for some brief discussion about the Planet of the Apes series, Spiderhead, Bohemian Rhapsody, Reading Festival, KAPOW! Wrestling and Nope.

To accompany the previous Thor film (in preparation for the upcoming Thor film) we’re reading Planet Hulk by Greg Pak and Carlo Pagulayan, a comic in which Thor barely appears. Nailed it!

042 Wanted

041 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

4/9/2022
Ian and Iain are your hosts in a half-shell for this exploration into 21st century Turtle Power. Bad decisions may have been made when they chose not-Michael Bay's (but totally Michael Bay's) 2014 movie, but what will they think of the IDW comic run from around the same time? As well as the general waffle, they're also discussing product placement, favourite turtles and pizza based Buzzfeed quizzes.

3/26/2022
Ian and Iain may be locked in combat for your soul, but they're in full agreement about the quality of The New Mutants (2020).

Also, as they've both finally got around to watching The Batman, feast your ears on some bonus spoiler-free bat chat.

Ian and Iain are sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire The Losers. Wait... that doesn't sound right. This episode, Ian and Iain discuss The Losers (2010) in relation to the comic of the same name by Andy Diggle and Jock, as well as Final Space, Shaun of the Dead, Star Wars, and Supernatural (apologies once again to Supernatural fans).
