Welcome to Journey Into Misery, where I explain complicated comics characters, continuity and concepts to the patient and perpetually perplexed Helena Hart.
It’s one of the biggest episodes yet, as we tackled Avengers: The Initiative, Avengers Academy, Avengers Arena and Avengers Undercover. They’re all books that focus on teen superheroes, so there’s a fair share of misery this week.
We have a Patreon to cover the hosting costs and hopefully be able to put out more shows that last longer. If you enjoy what we’re doing and want more, please take a look at the rewards we’ve got and consider signing up.
Every month on the Patreon, we do a few bonus episodes that supporters get advance access to. We wanted to make them available to everyone though, and some people have told us they want to support the show in a less linear fashion, so they are available for pay-what-you-want on Gumroad.
It’s important to us that they are available to everyone, and please feel free to take every one of the bonus episodes for free. However, if you do want to contribute to the show in any way, the option is there.
As I go through the podcast, I bring up images to show Helena what a character looks like. You can follow along with this image gallery.
We’ve started doing monthly video episodes of Journey Into Misery, as well as irregular Let’s Play style videos.
We have a Facebook now, where we can keep in better contact with our listeners, and ask you guys questions about upcoming episodes.
