Tales of the Justice Society of America #30

0d9c

Welcome to a kind of… off-beat episode of the TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!

This week, Scott and Mike continue their examination of other JSAer/Earth-2 related stories by focusing on the Golden Age Green Lantern himself — Alan Scott!!

First, the guys look at THE FLASH (Vol. 1) #268 and, to be honest, this comic turned out to have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Alan Scott!! Oh, sure the Golden Age Green Lantern is right there on the freakin’ cover, but it all turns out to be a trick!! An evil, evil trick. And not only that, but the story itself sucks so badly it actually has its own event horizon!!

Then it’s on to the Golden Age Green Lantern back-up stories from GREEN LANTERN (Vol. 2) #s 108 to 110 where the Earth-2 GL has to fight for his life against another bearer of the Green Flame!!

Finally, in Green Lantern #s 111 and 112, the Earth-1 and Earth-2 Green Lanterns team-up and, wouldn’t you know it, Green Arrow hangs around like the fifth wheel he is. Seriously, the dude serves no function to the story whatsoever. Okay, so he shared top billing with Green Lantern on this title… but still!! C’mon! He’s just so freakin’ annoying!! Anyhow, this adventure does deal with an alien entity stealing the Starheart. What’s the Starheart, you ask? Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out now, won’t you?

Be sure to stick around afterward as Scott makes a STARTLING ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING THE FUTURE OF TALES OF THE JSA PODCAST! YOU MUST HEAR THIS!

  1. I’m a first timer, really enjoyed the show.

    As regards the mysterious Roger in the GL back-up, sounds like an in-joke that didn’t come off – wasn’t there a Roger McKenzie working in comics in the Seventies?
