This web series provides examples of:

  • Author Appeal: Tiffany is a big magic fan, and especially a fan of Dr. Strange.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Ben and Ethan have various moments of this whenever Sal or Tiffany drops something they didn't see coming. One prominent example is during their review of All-Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder, where Ben's reaction was a combination of shock and anger upon hearing that The Joker never smiles in the book.
  • Brain Bleach: This was Ben and Tiffany's reaction to the revelation that Norman Osborn slept with Gwen Stacey.
    • Also Ethan and Ben's reaction to Trouble.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Ben says this trope when Sal drops the reveal that the protagonists Trouble are actually Aunt May, Uncle Ben and Peter Parker's parents.
  • Facepalm:
  • Halloween Episode: The first one was about the Batman mini-series The Long Halloween, and a later one was about Blackest Night.

  • Joke and Receive: This happens a lot with Ben, such as in the Marvel Knights Spider-Man episode about an issue where Electro visits a hooker who can change her form to match anyone. Ben jokes that Electro wants her to be Spider-Man so he can finally F*** Spider-Man... and Sal points out that's exactly what Electro wanted.
  • Noodle Incident: In their review of Trouble, Sal off-handedly mentions he was once kidnapped in the Dominican Republic.
  • Running Gag: For flashback sequences, the reader says, "Let's go back, let's go back."
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Ben briefly has this reaction to One More Day, leaving the set for a good 5 minutes before returning.
  • Worst. Whatever. Ever!:
    • Sal deems One More Day as the worst Spider-Man story ever made.
    • Sal calls Archie Meets The Punisher the worst crossover ever, which Ben retorts that he doesn't see how that's even possible.
