Drinking Issues 1: "Champions #1"
Drinking Issues is a monthly series where Mike and Davis will read a current comic arc as it's published and pair it with an alcohol they feel fits the issue. You'll be able to watch their feelings (good or bad) evolve over the course of the arc with a rating per issue and a final grade at the end of the arc.
We're starting with the flagship title of Marvel Now!, Champions. The teenage heroes are tired of watching the adults screw up and are ready to take matters into their own hands. We discuss the generation gap, hash-tagged movements, and Davis sings "Amadeus" enough to make Falco groan. Our pairings for the issue are Yuengling Lager and Ziegenbock Amber
Spoiler Warning: We will be reviewing the book in excruciating detail. If you have not read it and want to, please read the book before listening to this episode. If you want to know what happens without reading it, then let it ride!
