It’s JEFF! Jeff the Landshark. Kelly Thompson’s Marvel Unlimited Infinity Comic with artist team Gurihiru has won our hearts. And by “our,” we mean Comics Syllabus host Paul and his special guest, Cohost Kid! (That’s his daughter.) Today on the Comics Syllabus, we dive deep into the far reaches of Marvel history (2018!!!) to explore the origins of this irresistibly adorable character, his origins in the “West Coast Avengers” and “Deadpool” (also scripted by Thompson). Here’s Thompson’s Substack post detailing Jeff’s origins!

Then, Cohost Kid and the Comics Syllabus talk about some comics that have also won our hearts lately, including “Yotsuba&,” “Wings of Fire,” “The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl,” “Ms. Marvel,” and Dad’s weird “Spider-Man” reading. We also chat about “Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3” and the Disney+ “What If?” series.
