We pick up another new character this week as we read “Silk: The Life and Times of Cindy Moon” by Robbie Thompson. This Spider-verse event follow-up goes in-depth on Cindy Moon’s life after being rescued from her underground bunker. The premise is very cape-comics, but the result is a solid comic. We talk about the marriage of art and narration, the likability of Cindy Moon as a character, and why this doesn’t feel like a hard place to get into a new character, even with the convoluted origin. Plus, Andy shops for dollhouse furniture and David doesn’t want to hear your TLJ opinion.

Next time: “My Favorite Thing Is Monsters” by Emil Ferris
We jump forward about 50 years from last week by reading the “Ultimate Galactus Trilogy,” a tome of a story arc spanning three miniseries and a one-shot. It’s a huge tale with a long, savory buildup. But do we like these Ultimates or do we want our old helmet-head back? For more information on past or upcoming episodes, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
We take it back old school to 1966 to read the first appearance of one of the Marvel Universe’s biggest baddies by reading a trio of issues from Stan Lee & Jack Kirby’s original run on the Fantastic Four. “The Galactus Trilogy” spans issues 48 through 50. It’s fraught with great line art, poor coloring, and one hell of a dysfunctional team dynamic — not to mention the end of the world.
