In this issue we continue our season of holiday specials. Richard has gone to Europe for the next few weeks but we wanted to make sure you still get your Panels goodness. So we pre-recorded our kick ass Pick of the Week sections for the next few weeks and skipped all the other stuff. This is The Avengers week here at Geek Actually so, as a compliment to our feature film review of The Avengers on this week’s Film Actually show, we bring you our take on the new Marvel tie-in The Avengers Prelude: Fury’s Big Week by Eric Pearson & Christopher Yost, art by Luke Ross.
Our next reading assignment: Green Arrow: Year One by Andy Diggle and Jock.
The Vintage Clip of the Week this week is:
The Mighty Thor (1965) – “Molto, The Lava Man”
