Just as a student of history. If you killed Hitler before he had done anything. You would likely have someone else doing the same thing just not named Hitler. Thinking he was just a single man on a sick mission sort of forgets that he had a lot of followers to carry it out. He wasn't some lone, crazed gunman. Cutting off the head of the snake wouldn't have killed it. It would have just appointed a new head. Things could have become even worse if they had someone in charge who wasn't as out of his mind crazy.

That ending is crazy. The entire thing was some crazy fever dream? It kind of works for ASSASSIN'S CREED, but I normally hate that. It's such a cop out to take such an emotional topic and pull the rug out from under it.

Great pick for CCBCC. Is this gonna be the format? I think it would be really cool getting other staff members involved and get their opinions on different classic covers. Awesome new segment. Can't wait for the next episode.

GMan has another one coming up, and I have a few really weird books from the 60s I want to talk about.

Cool video. I must have missed Episode 1 along the line. As for the story, "they woke up and it was all a dream" has to be THE worst narrative cliché out there. Makes me cringe even hearing about it.

Just had to kill time between classes and stopped in to see this jewel. I have always thought this cover was ridiculous. @inferiorego is always entertaining. We need more sound bytes and/or videos from Matt! His video from the toy panels from SDCC this summer was great. Need to find the first episode of this...

I'll be doing more stuff soon. Here's a link to the first video featuring the awesomeness that is Gman!

Great video! Hope to see what other crazy comic book covers you have in store, its not often something on the front cover actually happens in the book, check out any of the first 6 issues of new 52 justice league for some great examples. I recall seeing a cover a while ago that had Xavier vs The X-men and one of the characters was saying something along the lines of "If this dosent make people buy this issue nothing will". It was a good few years ago now, maybe 20, wonder if anyone remembers it...

Background music too loud. Found it distracting to follow inferiorego's voice.
