Enough time has passed that now MAX comics don’t feel odd as being Flashbacks segments. Man, how time flies.

Introduction – Jake and his wife gets new hobbies, and life continues to be a nightmare for me. Here is a picture so you can keep up with our nerdery when Jake talks about his miniature figures.

[15:43] News – More Netflix news, a Jim Lee myth cleared up, and lego Punisher with “realistic” guns.

[29:22] Mail Call – One awesome fan is running a marathon and we get some questions from 4chan’s Comics and Cartoons board!

[40:08] Bullet Points – Things continue to creatively fall apart in Punisher #11, but Deadpool Vs. Punisher #1-2 turns out to be a refreshing, fun ride from writer Fred Van Lente.

[1:30:19] Flashbacks We dip back into Punisher MAX with Kitchen Irish, covering issues #7-12.

[2:06:39] Discharge Papers – Jake finally watched Jessica Jones and I enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, much like most of America.

[2:17:58] Discharge Papers – Jake recommends Rurouni Kenshin and not getting a liberal arts degree. I recommend you give Legion three episodes before deciding if you hate it.

[2:46:35] Discharge Papers – Jake’s finally seen Rogue One and Stranger Things. I talk about Ben Affleck’s The Accountant and I realize what is my favorite kind of niche genre. Seriously, if you have any recommendations for me in that genre, send us an email. I will watch it.
