A new week! A new mega series!

And, yes, a new theme song. It was time.

So anyhoo, in this week’s ball-breaking episode, Magnus inaugurates the beginning of the launch of the initial episode of the start of Tremendous Bendis Weekly.

Y’see, kiddies, Brian Michael Bendis is one of those comic pros who epitomizes the wise old adage “Familiarity breeds contempt”.

It could be his writing style. It could be his, shall we say, minimalistic style of writing.

Or it could all be totally legitimate!

But whatever the case, a lot of comic geeks grouse and complain when they see the name “Brian Michael Bendis” in the writer section of their comics.

It’s sort of a thing on the Internet.

Well, His Excellency is having none of it! Or very little of it anyway. A moderate level of it!

Yes indeed, kiddies, while Magnus is no Bendis devotee, it would still be fair to say that he’s enjoyed a bigly number of Bendis comics and, by golly, felt like reading and then, God knows, gabbing about a bigly number of Bendis comics.

And, to finally get to the point here, the spotlight shines this week on New Avengers vol. 01 #01-#06.

What’s so special about New Avengers, you ask? For starters, this was a major part of His Excellency’s introduction into the Marvel universe. But over and above that, this is just a *FUN* story! Yes, it has the general veneer of “darkness” (whatever that word even means anymore) but underneath that facade, this story is just a lot of fun to read!

Plus!

Plus it kicks off a bit of an epic in the Marvel Universe… the climax of which His Excellency deigned to include Michael Bailey on back in episode #106! So we’re going backwards here a little bit. We started with the ending and are only just now getting to the beginning. Maybe, in the end, we’ll talk about the middle. Someday. Maybe.

For those determined to ruin the Internet for everyone else by perpetuating click-bait on Facebook, “Five reasons why Breakout is an awesome story! #4 will make you laugh!”

Due to the deluge of ass-kickery, unfortunately there’s just no time for listener feedback this week.

However, there has been a fair amount of feedback (and feed-forward!) in recent episodes so this subject hasn’t been entirely ignored.

Patience! The vast backlog of feedback will be addressed in due time. Fear not!

In the meantime, though, don’t let the lack of feedback this time get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is trentusmagnus@gmail.com as the other seems to be having technical problems.

In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, your emperor permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to trentusmagnus@gmail.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
