Here we are! The finale of season 2. Yet another year has gone by in which we have proved the gypsy wrong!

Our extra-sized season closer (even for this notoriously long-winded show), in what is becoming a weird tradition, ranges far and wide over Marvel's great trade dress reimagining of last fall, Marvel Now. Is it a reboot? Is it a marketing ploy? Why are there two X-Force books that aren't very good? We discuss all this and more. 

Plus that Hickman guy's name may come up once or twice in passing.

Season 2 of the Stack wraps up in typically ridiculous fashion. See you on the other side.

This week we are rather profanely talking about the David Milch HBO Western Deadwood, famous for Al Swearengen and more f-bombs per minute than David Mamet's discarded drafts for Glengarry.

Seriously, folks, the explicit tag on this episode is not meant ironically. Very, very explicit.

But we have a lot of fun talking about a show we really, really love, and that you should too. Unless you're a hooplehead.

To paraphrase the Tenth Doctor: we're sorry. We're so, so sorry.

Sex! And violence! And superheroes! Oh my!

It's THE BOYS by Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, and a host of other artists. And Black Noir. And, gods save us, Team Titanic.

There is something so monumentous in this week's show on the 117 versions of Ridley Scott's sci-fi neo-noir Blade Runner that we dare not spoil it here. 

Here's a fun drinking game, though: every time someone says the word "replicant" or "subtle," take a drink. 

Yes, we will visit you in the hospital.

Before Jonathan Hickman's groundbreaking, earthshaking, heart-stopping run on FANTASTIC FOUR, the cover of the book used to read "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine."

On this episode, we go into great detail about why Hickman's run on this book literally is the greatest comic ever made.

All hope lies in The Stack.

This week we are taking a look at TRUTH: RED, WHITE, AND BLACK, a book you may not have read. And if you want to read it that's going to be very hard, because it's out of print. And that sucks, because you should read it. It's incredible. Written by Robert Morales and drawn by Kyle Baker, TRUTH is the story of a second Super Soldier program in World War II that experimented on African-American soldiers, and the repercussions that had in the 1940s and today.

It's an astounding book, and the fact that it's out of print makes your faithful podcast hosts about as angry as you've ever heard them. If you have read it, or you manage to get your hands on it, you will very quickly learn why.

The Stack - yeah, Marvel, we called you a travesty. And we mean it.
