Another fortnight gone by, and now it’s time for Hercules Unbound #8. Have David Michelinie and Walt Simonson created an underrated masterpiece of sequential storytelling, or is this just a kind of lame 1970’s DC comic? This issue has Tweetie bird’s owner assaulting our heroes, Hercules leaving one of his friends to drown, an early holodeck, and of course, lots of T&A!!
Because no one demanded it! This week we head back to 1976 and commence the second half of our coverage of DC’s Hercules Unbound with issue #7! This one has solid electricity, Not-The-Loch-Ness-Monster, Scottish Greeks, and Walt Simonson!
This week we start off with “The Story of Gerd and Frey”, courtesy of Neil Gaiman’s “Norse Mythology”, followed up by my convention report from C2E2 2019!! This episode contains overspending, a golden boar, Russell Dauterman, a bunch of giants, Esad Ribic, gay erotica, Valhalla, original comic art, and a sword that fights by itself! (not necessarily in that order…)

This time, we have an epic battle as Surtur and his fiery horde attack Oslo, Norway! Meanwhile, Thor is stuck in Baron Zemo’s hat, Thor’s goats are crispy critters, and Tarene spends some quality time with Lara Croft! Plus, the secret of Keith Kincaid is nearly revealed!
This week we look at Thor v.2 #39 – With Surtur’s threat mounting, and Thor temporarily out of action, who will step up to defend Midgard? This issue has golden showers, Odin’s scepter, and the usual assortment of supporting cast, plus a couple we’ve never met before!
This week we’re looking at the 2001 Thor Annual, featuring Durok the Destro….Gorr the God Butc….er…Desak the God Killer! Anyway, he’s a guy who hates Gods and he’s drawn by Tom Grummett, so at least he looks good! Also starring Beta Ray Bill and Hercules!
This week we look at Thor v2 #37, featuring guest artist Jim Starlin! It’s an all-battle issue as Thor takes on the Tarene-infused Destroyer, while Odin chats with the Watcher, and Marnot shows up for a few panels! Plus, a sea captain burns up! Nuff said!
This week, the return of the Destroyer, with the life of Jake Olson in the balance! Plus the return of Marnot, the mystery of Keith Kinkaid’s miraculous discovery deepens, and Loki gets sprung, as we cover Thor v.2, #36!
This week we’re back to covering comics, with Thor v2 #35! It’s a battle royale between Thor and Gladiator on Midgard, (with a little bit of Tarene and Sif in the mix), as Ulik and his army seige the Realm Eternal!
This week we look at Neil Gaiman’s retelling of ‘The Apples of Immortality’ – In this tale we find old people, a giant eagle giant thingy, big fires, and Loki playing a very special kind of tugging game….
This week we’re back to 2001 and Thor v2 #33! Dan Jurgens and Stuart Immonen bring us The Million Dollar Debut of Thor Girl! (whatever that means!), also, the much less auspicious debut of Nullitor (who I can’t stop calling Nullotron throughout the show…) plus the return of…?? Also, I give my thoughts on the state of the MCU, and we even have some listener mail!
