Biffed It: No Episode This Week

Dear The Listener,

Some technical difficulties and general incompetence rendered this week's episode un-listen-able.  Rather than subject you to it, we buried it in the earth, far from the ears of man. We'll be back to our normal schedule next week!

We here at Super Skull understand that comics are a horrible addiction, so we offer to you what would have been our Big Picks this week: 

Ether: Copper Golems #1

  • Portals between Earth and the Ether begin to crack open unleashing devastating magical fury on our planet and only adventurer Boone Dias can seal the breaches. In order to put an end to this chaos, Boone recruits a powerful team of mystical beings including a grumpy, spell-writing fairy; a bickering, lavender gorilla; and a bull-headed, motorcycling spell-hacker. These heroes set off on a journey taking the reader through the center of volcanoes, deserts full of living mummies and sphinxes, and a bizarre fairy forest in an effort to save both worlds from complete destruction!

Quicksilver #1

  • Quicksilver's super-speed and abrasive personality have always isolated him, but he's never been truly alone…until now. Trapped beyond the perception of friends, family and allies, Quicksilver wages a one-man guerilla war against a monster that he's not even sure is real, to save a world that he may never be a part of again.

A Walk Through Hell #1

  • Special Agents Shaw and McGregor handle the routine cases nowadays, which is just the way Shaw likes it. She’s pushing 40, a borderline burnout, the ghastly memories of her last investigation still clinging like shadows. McGregor is younger, more dedicated, hanging onto some measure of idealism whatever the world might throw at him. 
    When two fellow agents go missing inside a Long Beach warehouse, Shaw and McGregor are sent to investi-gate. But what they find waiting is far from routine, as the local police have already discovered to their cost. Before the night is out, our heroes will encounter terror beyond their most appalling nightmares—in a place where the night may never end at all.
