Kray Z Comics and Stories 528: Solitaire Rose Series in Review The Eternals Part 1

Joe and Cory!! weren’t able to match schedule this week, so instead we have a special episode for you:
Solitaire Rose Series in Review is where Cory!! gives DVD style commentary to an older comics series. This time it is The Eternal by Jack Kirby from 1976. Cory!! breaks down the first 3 issues, going into the genesis of the series and puts it in a historical context not just in comics, but in larger history and pop culture.

Sadly, no Joe, but as a bonus, no Dad joke from Joe to close the show. So you’ve got that going for you, which is nice.
