Episode 50 - Getting Angry Never Solved Anything



Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

Three comics from Wednesday, July 9, 2014. Plus your Nerd Confessions (about comics that made you angry).

Show Notes:
This week’s theme is getting angry never solved anything. Really. It just makes things worse. We're not saying let people walk all over you, just maybe pick your battles. Chill out. C’est la vie. We’re looking at characters who haven’t quite mastered the art of taking a deep breath and counting to ten before freaking out. Shockingly, not a single one of them is big and green, either. Turns out, there’s a lot of anger in comics. Because while it may not be a great life strategy, it does make for good storytelling.

Punching aliens while the aliens punch you. Carol Danvers hits first and asks questions later.

Punching robots while the robots (and their human) punch you. Magnus hits first and never asks questions at all.
(Bonus: more Carol Danvers talk.)

Punching...your mom? While the CIA tries to punch you? Valentine is surprisingly the most level-headed of this group, so far.
(Bonus: more Carol Danvers talk AND extended insight into Andrea's pop culture dissonance.)
