Comics Recs for this episode:

This week, Templemarker plays sherpa through the soap operatic wilds of Marvel, DC, and indie comics. We talk about how to get your toes wet in the twisty, confusing world of sprawling and contradictory canons, show you the ropes on the stories to read and the ones to avoid, and give those of you already chomping at the bit for the 2012 Avengers movie some context for the film. And then, we drop a righteous mountain of fandom and canon recs for you guys — happy reading! The comics blog MK mentions at the end of the recording isComics212.net. TempleMarker’s Generation Kill intro post can be found over here.

Music this week: Opening music: Calculation, by Regina Spektor. Closing music: Long Division, by Death Cab for Cutie
