If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.

This week, Chris is in his (extremely cluttered) office, making up for lost time and a lost video by taking your viewer questions! Topics discussed include Gorilla Grodd, overlooked crossovers, controversial opinions on Sonic the Hedgehog, and why Street Fighter II has better characters than most other things.

Show Notes:

  • If you're interested in Chris's story about Dudley and Balrog, you can find it here.
  • Bill Mantlo, Keith Giffen and Todd McFarlane's Invasion is a favorite.
  • Carl Barks and Don Rosa's Uncle Scrooge comics are some of the best of all time.
  • The argument over Captain America's war-time body count will be in a future episode, so we all have that to look forward to.
