This is PopApostle's study of the Expendables movie series and the prequel comic book mini-series from Dynamite Entertainment. Here, I an presenting my studies relating to each, such as commentary on the weapons and equipment used by the characters, references to earlier action films, sound bits of memorable dialog, screen grabs and my own musings.

 

I am continuing to use the term "episode" here as I have elsewhere on PopApostle, as a separable piece in the continuous narrative of a larger story.
