An irreverent podcast that covers the adventures of the Mighty Thor, Hercules, and other mythological heroes in the comics! We also have more serious readings of mythology and other topics from time to time.. So if you like comics, mythology, silly voices, and lots of dick jokes, give us a try!
This week we look at Mighty Thor #3! Girl Thor faces off against Lady Loki in the general vicinity of a building with a very female shape! Freyja faces trial! Alfheim gets bombed! The crowd of Lokis goes wild! Co-starring Tom Hiddleston as Loki McPubeface. Nuff said!
This week, it’s Mighty Thor #2, courtesy of Aaron and Dauterman! Thor defends Alfheim from Roxxon and Malekith’s evil army, while Heimdal gets thrown in jail, and Loki tries to prove himself to King Laufey, despite his face pubes! Plus I have a few basic thoughts on Wonder Woman (no spoilers)! Nuff said!
OK, how about something a little more recent? This week we look at Mighty Thor #1 (2016) – Yes, it’s the continuation of Jane Foster’s adventures as she goes up against a falling satellite, everyone sings “It’s Raining Elves!”, the Avengers show up and then leave, and Loki gets face pubes! Fluff said!
This week we wrap up the first half of Hercules Unbound with issue #6! It’s the final (for now!) face-off between Hercules and Ares! This issue features a dead bird, a dead dog, some seriously speedy horses, and a complete lack of knowledge of English geography! Dare you miss this???
This week we have the conclusion of our Hunter Blood story in Hercules Unbound #5! This story involves a cockney gorilla taking Hercules to see a movie while Big Ben is on the verge of collapsing outside! Plus one of our party gets squished! (sorry, it wasn’t the writer…)
We’re back! Just in time for a trip to merrie olde England in Hercules Unbound #4! There are cat people! Giant bells! Chateau Briand ’63! Not to mention the most annoyingly voiced villain since Gorr the God Butcher!
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!
