While you all are enjoying Thor’s throwdown with the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, we look this week at The Mighty Thor #196 from back in 1972, where the Thunder God faces not one, but TWO big bads, including Kartag the Caretaker and …the Mangog! Guest starring invisible walls, polka-dotted mist, and Captain Birdseye!
This week we go back in time and cover The Mighty Thor #290! Man-Gog is back! Thor murders a tree! Sif gets sent to the Blackworld! There are trolls and dinosaur/bird things! Odin assembles an old fogey army! Excitement abounds!
This week I’m working crap-tons of overtime! So while I’m getting time and a half for a thankless task, and virtually no appreciation, please enjoy “Hyndla’s Poem” from Episode 108, “Thor’s Duel with Hrungnir” from Episode 144, “Odin and Billing’s Daughter” from Episode 153, and “Gylfi and Gefion” from Episode 171!
This week we cover Thor V2 #29! Jurgens, Kubert & Co present Thor vs The Wrecking Crew, with the life of Hogun the Grim in the balance! Plus, Jagrfelm has a bit of elf trouble, as Malekith the Accused takes “raiding the ice box” to a whole new level 😉
Jim and Eric have another long weekly podcast for you, talking about all of this week’s DC Comics as well as stories about Life, the Universe and Everything. They are joined by the usual motley crew of Reggie, Chris, Trevitt, Brandon and Josh as well as all the Rant and Raves and Listener Mail one can handle. Enjoy, but don’t ask Jim how to make a Manhattan…he doesn’t know.
Hey, we’re here this week too! In between episodes of me packing for my upcoming move, we’re looking at Thor v.2 #28, in which our hero and the Warriors Three do some New York City sight-seeing, Sif does some ruling, the Wrecker and his Wrecking Crew hang around in a cheap motel… in costume… and someone offers to “polish Thor’s helmet”…if you know what I mean… Don’t miss it!
It’s Epsiode 282 Redux, as we recover from the Great HD Crash of ’17! In this episode we cover The Mighty Thor (v.2) #27, as Jurgens, Larsen, and Janson give us the second half of the Absorbing Man story! It’s a slug fest in a crumbling tenement with Jane Foster and Titania’s lives in the balance!
Jim and Eric get together to talk some comics, but with the current state of DC Comics, they wonder if they are burned out. That doesn’t stop them from talking for over 7 hours about the books, bats in the attic, flea market shopping and other things… Enjoy!
This week we finish the first story arc of the current Mighty Thor series with issue #5! It’s Thor vs. Odin, mostly in the background, with a lot of other stuff going on! Malekith gets married! Freyja gets stabbed! The Warriors Three get ignored! Nuff said, True Believers!
