Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. Over the course of their travels through comicdom, they have encountered numerous stories via the wonder of trade paperbacks and graphic novels. Once a month, Nick and Greg will review one of those collections in The Longbook Hunters.
This time around, the boys finally tackle arguably Marvel’s most famous “event book,” that staple of early ‘90s comic book kids’ lives, “The Infinity Gauntlet” by Jim Starlin, George Perez and Ron Lim! Greg and Nick discuss their histories with this title, 1991 fashion, the unusual Avengers lineup of the time, Adam Warlock weirdness, Thanos’ inability to take a hint, and much more! Plus: how does the book stack up with the movie it inspired, Avengers: Infinity War?
