Superman Fan Podcast Episode #367 Part II: Superman Family Comic Book Cover Dated March 1964: World’s Finest Comics #140!

World’s Finest Comics 140, March 1964!

Download Episode 367 Part II!

WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 140, March 1964, was published on January 30, 1964. It contained

 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. The editor was Jack Schiff, and the cover was pencilled by Jim Mooney, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics. The Grand Comic Book Database credits Dick Dillon as the penciller, while both sources credit Sheldon Moldoff as the inker. Comic Book Database.com lists Jim Mooney and Sheldon Moldoff without designating who was the penciller or inker.

– The fifteen page Superman/Batman story was titled, THE CLAYFACE SUPERMAN, written by Dave Wood. Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics credits Jim Mooney as the penciller and Sheldon Moldoff as the inker. The Grand Comic Book Database credits Jim Mooney as the artist. This story was reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: WORLD’S FINEST vol. II.

– Green Arrow and Speedy were featured in the ten page story, THE LAND OF NO RETURN, written by Bill Finger and drawn by Lee Elias. This story was reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: GREEN ARROW vol. I.

Also highlighted in this episode are the issue’s ads and other features.

This issue marked the last issue edited by Jack Schiff before Mort Weisinger brought the title into his stable. A few months later he would be removed as editor of the Batman titles because of low sales. Julius Schwartz would become the new editor with DETECTIVE COMICS 327 and BATMAN 164, beginning the Caped Crusader’s silver age with a yellow circle around the bat logo on his chest. Schiff would become the editor of HOUSE OF SECRETS, STRANGE ADVENTURES, HOUSE OF MYSTERY, TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED and MYSTERY IN SPACE until his retirement from DC Comics in 1967, after a 25 year career with the company. One of his hallmarks with DC were his Public Service Announcements, which ran in DC’s title, tapping into comic books’ potential as an educational medium. For more information about Jack Schiff click here.

During the recording I forgot to mention that 28 titles carried the March or March/April 1964 cover date, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics.

The episode begins with the MY PULL LIST segment, covering the June 2017 comic books published in April, which I received from Discount Comic Book Service.

Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 156: SDCC 2017 Part 1, or: Live Your Truth, Just Not on My Pants

The first official day of San Diego Comic-Con 2017 was yesterday, and we are doing shows live (to tape) from the belly of the beast.

Being our first day back to SDCC in three years, we discuss what’s changed in the intervening time, including a brand new requirement to bend the knee and pledge fealty to Rick Grimes. We also discuss some of our strategies for working the floor, some interesting observations about the state of the convention, and some protips on how to ask a question at a panel (The protip being to ask a question, and remember that your life story is not a question).

We also discuss some observations and news tidbits from the Karen Berger / Paul Levitz panel, and the DC Meet the Publishers panel!

And a few points to remember:

  • We encoded this episode at a slightly lower bitrate than usual. We did this to try to save bandwidth and to ensure we’d have enough space to deliver episodes from San Diego Comic-Con. So we apologize if the sound isn’t quite as clean as it usually is. Luckily, you don’t need a lot of bits to record drunken profanity.
  • This show contains adult, profane language, and is therefore not safe for work.
  • While we will be uploading podcasts periodically throughout the convention, you should follow us on Facebook for uploads of photos and other media we grab during SDCC.

Comics Alternative, Euro Comics: Review of Valerian and Laureline

Listen to the podcast!

Time Codes:

  • 00:00:25 – Introduction
  • 00:03:23 – Setup, and a big thanks to Jerome Saincantin!
  • 00:05:01 – Valerian and Laureline
  • 01:13:46 – Wrap up
  • 01:15:10 – Contact us


Sci Fi, French Style

This month on The Comics Alternative‘s Euro Comics series, Edward and Derek devote the entire episode to Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières’s Valerian and Laureline series. They do this within the context of Luc Besson’s new film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. As the guys point out, the series’ English publisher, Cinebook, has begun to release new hardbound two-volume editions of title, but Derek and Edward are reviewing from the paperback single-story editions that have been available previously. In all, they discuss volumes 1-4, 6, 9-13, and 15, published through Cinebook between October 2010 and December 2016.

Among the many elements of Valerian and Laureline that they discuss are the evolution of Christin’s style over the course of the series, the ways in which the stories both adhere to and deviate from common science-fiction tropes, the strong (and non-objectifying) representations of Laureline, the title’s colorful cast of secondary or supporting figures, the series’ all-age quality, and the subtle ways in which the creators embed current (at the time of creation) socio-political contexts within the narrative. Even the guys only focus on one title this month, there’s more than enough to cover on this episode.



Longbox Review 121: The Hipster Beard

I often read James Blundell’s comic book blog, A Comic Book Addict!!, and in May 2017 he posted “So I Wrote a Comic“. He described the process by which he and artist Ayoade Abobarin created a four-page comic titled “The Hipster Beard”. I wanted to know more, so I invited James and Ayoade to talk about their experience.

Comics Alternative Interviews: Ger Apeldoorn

Just in time for the San Diego Comic-Con — where he and Craig Yoe will be meeting with fans and signing books — Ger Apeldoorn is on the show to talk with Derek about his new book, Behaving Madly: Zany, Loco, Cockeyed, Rip-off, Satire Magazines (IDW/Yoe Books). It’s a beautifully produced work that highlights the many knockoffs of Bill Gaines’s Mad that appeared between 1954 to 1959, attempting to capitalize on the kind of success the Usual Gang of Idiots enjoyed once the title changed to magazine format. These Mad wannabes appeared with such titles as From Here to InsanityCockeyedBunk!, SNAFULunatickleWho Goofed?ThimkShook UpFrenzyFrantic!LocoZany, and Nuts! You might think — or thimk — that these rip-offs would all be cheesy and subpar, but as Ger makes clear, these short-lived satire magazines included work from such comics legends as Jack Davis, Al Jaffee, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, Joe Kubert, Howard Nostrand, Bob Powell, Ross Andru, Basil Wolverton, and Russ Heath. Derivative and second-rate? Perhaps. But the selections in Behaving Madly are no laughing matter. Well…actually, they are.
