Sidekickcast Episode #34 – Get Down with the Sickness

Sidekickcast Episode #34 - Get Down with the Sickness

For this week only we present to you the hangover-cast, regular hosts Dan and Gavin are joined by Sidekick regular Mikey Bumchin to prove just how apathetic alcohol can make you, with some unsuccessful attempts to answer that timeless question: ‘Comics, what’s the point innit?!’.

In Stack Attack we review Uncanny X-Men #520, Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth #7, Wolverine: Weapon-X #9, S.W.O.R.D #3 and Drone #2.

Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz takes it’s first ever victim as one Sidekick can’t take the heat. Still no Knowing Me, Knowing You but we gloss over that with a look at Brian Azzarello’s Joker in Dig That!. The out-takes after the outro music this week are essential listening, miss them at your peril.

Teenage Wasteland Episode 61 – Avatar, IDW and All That I am Missing

This week is a special week as I am joined by listener and friend Jeff Sandquist. Jeff usually writes an e-mail to share his thoughts, but this week I thought I would give him the option of the microphone. What is discussed? Everything Jeff is reading: books from IDW, Avatar and other assorted publishers. Plus, a little conversation on Jeff’s career as a comic book fan, and a quick tangent on the Avatar movie.

Check it out; Jeff is a voice to like.

Tales of the Justice Society of America – Episode #12


It’s that time again, folks! No not Miller Time, you lush! I’m talking about “Tales of the Justice Society of America” time! Whoo-hoo!!

This week, Scott and Mike kick things off with more of YOUR e-mails and the usual discussion/tangents/rants that they inspire. Listen to hear The Amazing Scott predict something eerily close to the I-Pad well before it was even announced!!

Then, it’s on to DC Special #29 which features the Most Sensational Secret of World War II — The Untold Origin of the Justice Society and how they came to be!! See (or at the very least hear anyway) how it all began as the guys cover this spectacular issue from top to bottom — including Mike proving that he does indeed have a very large chip on his shoulder when it comes to proving how what a big comic book brain he supposedly has!!

Special appearance by Uncle Adolf!!

After that are the ads and, sadly, they’re not quite up to par. I mean, For Pete’s Sake, there wasn’t even a Hostess ad in this one (which Mike and Scott are fairly certain violated some law from this time period)!!

All of this — PLUS — What else was lookin’ good in the DC Multiverse at this time!!

:Sigh: I still can’t get over there not being any Hostess ad in this issue. That’s just downright Un-American!


Best.Show.Ever.” — listener Jaak Purres

We hope you enjoy our show and will join us each and every week for more Tales of the Justice Society of America!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America is a production in association with Two True Freaks! which is a proud member of BOTH The Comics Podcast Network and The League of Comic Book Podcasts

Superman Fan Podcast Episode #111: Who’s Who In Action Comics #1!

Since 2010 is DC Comics’ 75th anniversary, this is an appropriate year to focus on some unexplored areas of Superman’s corner of the DC Universe. This episode explores the other characters and creators who were also featured, after Superman, in ACTION COMICS issue 1, cover dated June 1938. The wwebsites and provided stories synopses, and provided creator biographies.

All of the stories in ACTION 1 were originally untitled but have since been provided names after DC began reprinting their early stories in Archive editions. After Superman’s first story, CHAMPION OF THE OPRESSED, the other stories, in order of appearance, and with a brief publication history, are:

CHUCK DAWSON: THE A-G GANG 6 pg. western adventure, ACTION 1 – 22, written and drawn by Homer Fleming.

ZATARA: THE MYSTERY OF THE FREIGHT TRAIN ROBBERIES 12 pg. occult, ACTION 1 – 132, 136, 138 & 141, NEW YORK’S WORLD’S BEST COMICS 1 – WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 51, written and drawn by Fred Guardineer.

STICKY MITT STIMSON, 4 pg., crime, only appearance, written and drawn by Russell Cole.

MARCO POLO: 4 pg. historical adventure, ACTION 1 – 17, written and drawn by Sven Elvin.

PEP MORGAN: THE LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP, adventure, ACTION 1 – 41, written and drawn by Fred Guardineer.

SCOOP SCANLON, THE FIVE STAR REPORTER, 6 pg. adventure, ACTION 1 – 13, written and drawn by William, Bill, Ely.

TEX THOMSON: MURDER IN ENGLAND, 12 pg. adventure, ACTION 1- 32, Mr. America: ACTION 33 – 51 and the Americommando ACTION 52 – 74, written and drawn by Bernard Baily. Tex Thomson would be a major character in THE GOLDEN AGE, a four issue DC Elseworld’s mini-series in 1993, collected in a paperback edition in 1995. It sould still be available.

NEXT EPISODE: Since February is Black History Month, it’s appropriate to feature a storyline from the 1940’s Superman radio show where the Man Of Steel battled racism in SUPERMAN VS. THE CLAN OF THE FIERY CROSS!
