What is a holiday without traditions? Though we enjoy Thanksgiving with all its bird eating and cranberry stuffing funs, the best part of the fourth Thursday in November is sitting down with my collected editions of Asterix to see what adventures the Gaul is getting into this year. And because traditions generally tie to events from the previous year, what better Asterix book to look at than Asterix and the Goths from 1963, a book that has very close ties to last year’s Retro Review of Asterix and the Golden Sickle.
We’ve reviewed the first Molly Danger book on the Major Spoilers Podcast, and we found the characters and story interesting in the printed form. But what about as an audio drama? AudioComics has a brand new audio comic version of Molly Danger available, and we took some time to give it a listen.
For you young’ns, there once was a series called Battlestar Galactica, created to cash in on a boom in science fiction stories, taking bits and pieces of many different stories to tell the tale of a ragtag fleet of alien refugees running after the destruction of their homeworld by robotic monsters. That part probably sounds familiar, but when I mention that this was all the way back in 1978, you’ll probably groan and start to mock the special effects. Wanna see why that’s a mistake? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Everyone at Major Spoilers is taking a little time off this week to spend time with family, friends, and fans, so we thought we’d take this moment to share what we are thankful for this year.

There are no bad characters. Only bad writers. Or at least, writers who don’t know what to do with the characters.

You’ve had your chance to watch Day of the Doctor (or if you haven’t, why not?), and it is time for Matthew and Stephen to go into so very spoilery territory as they discuss the 50th Anniversary special of Doctor Who, “The Day of the Doctor.”
Some time ago, we looked at the Superman story that had the great misfortune to come out in the days immediately following the assassination of President Kennedy fifty years ago this week. What you may not know is, that tale wasn’t the only Kennedy-related story that DC had on tap in those heady days of 1963, and the story of the second one is as interesting as the first. Your Major Spoiler (retro) review awaits!
