Just Another Fanboy 93 – The Origin of Shazam

This is the episode in which I dip back into the old episode bin and play something from April of 2019.

Ever wondered how Shazam started? Did you know that there’s more than one origin story?

Well, here’s two.

This week I talk through two of Shazam’s origin stories: Whiz Comics #2 from 1940 and Shazam: The New Beginning from 1987.

Just Another Fanboy 91 – Major Bummer #1 (1997)

This is the episode in which I talk about Major Bummer #1 by John Arcudi, Doug Mahnke, Tom Nguyen, Carla Feeny, Willie Schubert, and Peter Tomasi.

“Lou Martin’s just gained incredible superpowers! Too bad all he wants to do is stay firmly planted on the couch. But an alien got Lewis Martin, slacker extraordinaire, and Martin Lewis, promising young lawyer, confused and sent an Extreme Enhancement Module to the wrong guy, and now Lou’s got superheroes trying to get him to . . . ugh . . . contribute to society–and outlandish supervillains, monsters, and aliens are out to take him down!”

Just Another Fanboy 90 – The JLA Versus The Avengers

Who is the greater super hero team? The Justice League of America, or the Avengers?

I don’t know. That’s not the point of this episode.

Instead, I’ve read an Avengers trade and a JLA trade and I talk about the two of them and then tell you which one I liked better and why.

Enjoy!

Just Another Fanboy 89 – Conan: The Frost Giant’s Daughter

This is the episode in which I talk about Conan Volume 1: The Frost Giant’s Daughter and Other Stories by Kurt Busiek, Tim Truman, Haden Blackman, Cary Nord, Thomas Yeates, Richard Starkings, and Dave Stewart

“When the internationally famous barbarian hero returned to comics, with an all-new fresh start by award-winning writer Kurt Busiek (JLA/Avengers, Astro City) and dynamic artists Cary Nord, Thomas Yeates, and Dave Stewart, the result was instant sell-outs and multiple printings to keep up with the demand. Now Conan’s earliest adventures are collected in a handsome 192-page collection. Catch all the action and savagery as he wars with the murderous Vanir, meets the Frost Giant’s Daughter, and is taken as a slave by the ancient sorcerers of Hyperborea! This top-selling new series faithfully expands on original author Robert E. Howard’s literary creation. Collecting issues #0-#6 and fourteen pages from issue #7 of the ongoing series.”

Published by Dark Horse on March 30, 2005.

The Evil Life: Making Evil #5

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino talk about the creation of Finding Evil chapters 1-4 (13-16 on Webtoon) of The Evil Life webcomic as Hester, Gloom, and Blarf all meet each other and go through some crazy @#$% in the process!

We break down some of our favorite moments in these four chapters, including some characters and jokes that hold a lil special meaning to us.

Like this one, for example…

Along with digging into the making of these chapters, we dish about printing minicomics of The Evil Life and we tease our upcoming underwater koala comic a bit.

And then finally after the end theme we drop some shoutouts to a few of our fave commenters on Webtoon!

You can follow The Evil Life webcomic on NickMarino.net or Webtoon. The chapters covered in this conversation include Finding Evil 1: Fork It Over, 2: The Choice, and 3: Meet and Beat, and 4: The Audition.

BONUS DOWNLOAD! Curious about that “Bobcat” reference up above? Check out Cougar and Cub (NSFW, mature readers only)!

The Evil Life: Making Evil #4

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino talk about the creation of Growing Evil chapters 10-12 of The Evil Life webcomic, detailing Blarf’s life on the farm, Hester’s return to the marmots, and Gloom’s soul-crushing day job.

We talk about our inspirations and goals behind these scenes, from subverting Superman to giving a talking marmot some serious page time to using real life at the office as fodder for Gloom’s own struggles at work.

We also reveal some of our favorite tiny moments in these chapters, from pre-owned nails to Jerry shushing Hester to the sad toilet and lots more.

And then there’s this…
…the digital collected edition of Growing Evil! It’s a widescreen hi-res PDF that’s packed with nearly 200 panels of humor, action, and slice-of-life supervillainy.

DOWNLOAD THE EVIL LIFE v1: GROWING EVIL [PDF, 155.7MB]
(right click to save… we wanted to make it available on Gumroad too but apparently you can’t have a file be $0+ and over 25MB)

You can follow The Evil Life webcomic on NickMarino.net or Webtoon. The chapters in this conversation include 10: The Secret, 11: Above Ground, and 12: Daily Bind.

Just Another Fanboy 87 – Extreme Justice Zero!

This is the episode in which I talk about Extreme Justice #0 by Dan Vado, Marc Campos, Ken Branch, Lee Loughbridge, and Kevin Cunningham.

“The new League battles against a renegade military genius with an arsenal of super-high-tech weapons, and discover a vast conspiracy! Plus, get a first look at the secret mountain lair that will become the team’s new base of operations–if they can survive its hidden terrors.”

For such an extreme title, there’s a surprising lack of exclamation points in that issue description.

Published by DC Comics on January 11, 1995.

Just Another Fanboy 86 – This is Not About Manimal

This is not an episode about Manimal. I don’t know that I can make that fact any more clear.

If you are here thinking that finally, someone has stepped up to the plate and has started an in-depth discussion about the 1983 television show about a man who can change himself into any animal and helps police solve crimes then you would be dead wrong.

I mention the TV show once. That’s all. And only by name. That’s it. I’m sorry to get your hopes up, but figured it’s best to let you know now.

Sorry.

This is the episode in which my mind meanders on various subjects such as my other podcasts, Valentine’s Day, and tricking my wife.
