Having covered most of the news they cared about in episode 79, in this episode Brock and Nick blather about random news, origins of Marvel comics and eventually just to annoy each other.
They did fit in a review, though. This is another trip in the somewhat way back machine. Before millennials were born is probably “way back” at this point. When looking at the history of comics, though, a story like Concrete by Paul Chadwick is how, what we call, independent comics really started to break into major publishing. This story about a writer turned neigh invincible block of rock sounds like the kick off point for a superhero book, but this is where these kind of books make their bones in keeping the same neurotic writer being the same neurotic writer.
