This week we look at Hercules Unbound #3! In this issue, we go through a hole in the ground next to the Eiffel Tower to visit Pluto/Hades in Hell/Hades! We are joined by the usual gang, plus a lyre-player with a groovy headband! Don’t miss the first appearance of Gorr the God Butcher’s dark servants, an “accidental” killing, and several other silly coincidences. It’s Hercul-riffic! (plus, my con report of C2E2!)
This week we start our coverage of Neil Gaiman’s “Norse Mythology”! We talk about the origins of the universe, and hear a bit about the cosmology of the nine worlds! There’s a giant, a cow, water logged trees, and a little surprise! Don’t miss it!
We continue our coverage this week of Hercules Unbound with issue #2! Hercules and Kevin face off against Cerebus! No, not the aardvark. The less interesting character with the blue dogs. This issue contains cruelty to animals, a bad British stereotype, Hercules mixing up his mythologies, and more! Don’t miss it!
This week we look at a fun one & done issue of Journey Into Mystery! This story features Thor nudity, tree murder, two big dogs, two small dwarves, the Warriors Three, headliner Sif in a much reduced role, but you get to see Volstagg in a pink fuzzy onsie! Face front, effendi!
This week we wrap up the first Sif story arc in Journey Into Mystery with issue #650! See the Berserkers run…erm…berserk.. in Asgardia and Broxton! Facepaint causes some chaos, Heimdall ends up not being headless, and somehow it ends with a snowball fight… Nuff said!
Happy Spring! Please join us this week for our latest compilation of Norse lore from prior episodes! This time around we have “The Lay of Grimnir”, “The Necklace of the Brisings”, and “The Lay of Thrym”!
This week we continue our look at Sif’s run in Journey Into Mystery with issue #649. This issue features a bevy of random Avengers cameos, and a whole passel o’ Spider-Mans (Spiders-Men?), not to mention a few Asgardians! Nuff said!
This week we cover the adventures of the mighty Sif and her companions, Fauxhawk, Man-Bun, and Facepaint, in Journey Into Mystery #648! There’s blood of many colors, a giant robot thingy, and together Sif & Co. somehow break the berserker dimension! Face front, true believers!
This week we cover Journey Into Mystery #647, featuring Sif! As she comes to embrace her inner berserker, Sif ends up getting a time-out from Heimdall and transported to another world, featuring 3 weird looking dudes and a giant orange alien thing! If that doesn’t grab you, nothing will!
This week we vault into a new series, as we start covering Journey Into Mystery with issue #646! Here’s the scoop. Sif wants to be a better warrior, so she seeks out the one who can teach her how to be more of an asshole. On the way she belittles a little girl and talks with a stupid dragon! This will go well…
This week we finish our “Loki steals the Odin Ring” story arc with The Mighty Thor #194! It’s a battle royale, as Thor and Loki duke it out as Sif whines, Balder and Karnilla agonize what to do, and worst of all, the Warriors Three wake up Odin! Don’t miss it!
It’s an extra-long show to cover an extra-long issue, The Mighty Thor #193! Gerry Conway makes his debut on the book, featuring Stan Lee’s leftovers, and co-starring… the Silver Surfer! Why? Well, because Stan said so! Nuff said!
This week we have a look at Stan Lee’s final regular issue of The Mighty Thor, issue #192! It’s Thor vs. Durok! At Mardi Gras! In a sterotypical South American dictatorship! Plus, Balder and Karnilla go to Mount Everest! Odin sleeps, and Durok gets a manicure between issues! We also have a look at what else was going on in comic-land that month! Nuff said!
