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 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!
This week, it’s hammer time, as we bang away at issue 12 of the Mighty Thor, which reveals…. the secret origin of Mjolnir! There are dwarves galore, Odin dickery, “I got a rock!” and to claw it all back on topic, The God Storm! This… is not… a drill!
This week we cover The Mighty Thor #10! As Roxxon Island prepares to pulverize New York, Thor and Bobblehead Roz Solomon face off against Oubliette Midas, the Silver Samurai, the B.E.R.Z.E.R.K.E.R.S., not to mention Dario Agger himself! Nuff said!
This fortnight, we look at The Mighty Thor #9, from 2016! Oubliette Midas and the Silver Samurai have captured Dario Agger, and it’s up to Thor and Roz Solomon to save him to keep Manhattan from being destroyed! This is, as they say, an all-action ish! Don’t miss it!
This week, it’s back to 2016 as we cover The Mighty Thor #6! It’s a fill-in issue as Dario Agger covers Alfheim with oil. Meanwhile, in the 9th century, Thor and Loki teach a Viking named Bodolf all about the power of prayer!
This week we finish our look at The Mighty Thor #400! In this epsiode, we have the ‘origin’ of Fandral the Dashing! Thor and Hercules hold hands! Loki tempts a fire demon with…souls? plus a few bonus features!
This week we’re covering Thor #399! Odin is back! Does this mean the tide will be turning in the war against Seth and his minions? Or is he just one of far too many characters to fit properly in the story… plus the Black Knight is still getting stiff! That Cialis he’s on must be good stuff… Plus, some listen feedback!
In this final installment of our coverage of Norse Mythology by Kevin Crossley-Holland, we re-present “Loki’s Flyting” from Episode 162, The Binding of Loki” from Episode 252, and finally….. “Ragnarok” from Episode 261.
