Tales of the Justice Society of America #34

WELCOME TO ANOTHER EXCITING AND FREAKIN’ AWESOME EPISODE OF THE “TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA”!
 
Sure, it’s a tad late this week, but that’s only because this episode is so amazing that the greatest of care had to be taken in the editing process!
 
Not buying it, huh? 
 
Oh, well.  It was worth a shot. 
 
In any case, this week sees Scott and Mike continue their look at The ALL-STAR SQUADRON with issue five and boy, was there a lot to talk about in this one!! Not only do the Justice Society make a major decision affecting the future of that team, but a NEW HERO is introduced and — she is HOT! No, seriously! (Her powers are flame based) 
 
Beyond that, Mike admits his feelings about the villain known as the Feathered Serpent and the guys talk about the history of the Stature of Liberty! Thanks to Scott, the guys also present the complete speech President Frankling Delano Roosevelt gave to Congress on December 8, 1941. Scott also mentions the awesome Independence Day episode he recorded for “Two True Freaks!”, so make sure you give that special a listen. It is kid tested, Mike approved, and you may find it here — http://twotruefreaks.libsyn.com/index.php?post_id=627867
 
After the break, the guys discuss BRAVE AND THE BOLD #182. In this exciting issue, the Batman of Earth-1 teams up with the Robin of Earth-2 and, while you would think that such a team-up would be a mutual admiration society meeting, it turns out to be anything but!! For one thing, Robin has a mega-sized stick up his butt about Batman looking like… well… Batman!! Then there’s the addition of the Batwoman of Earth-2 getting involved and she just brings nothing but creepy to the party. Sure, the concept is cool and the Jim Aparo art is sixteen flavors of greatness, but the wonky elements are definitely there and both Scott and Mike have a hard time downplaying them.
 
So, you get these TWO books, PLUS Elsewhere in the DC Multiverse, AND a whole slew o’ e-mails! This episode has it ALL!! — Well, except any Hostess Ads (queue sad trombone).
 
Next week: ALL-STAR SQUADRON #6 and ANOTHER “back-up feature” (that I don’t know what it is yet)!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #33

0d9c

WELCOME TO YET ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF EARTH-2 COMIC BOOK AWESOME SAUCE!

That’s right, folks. This week, Scott and Mike hop back into the Flux Capacitor fueled 1991 Toyota Corolla (c’mon, like either one of these clowns could afford a DeLorean!) and head back to December, 1941 to talk about ALL-STAR SQUADRON #4.

In this exciting issue, the All-Stars head to Pearl Harbor and decide that it is high time to take the fight to the Japanese! Problem is that the Dragon King, evil agent of the Axis powers, is ready for them with the Holy Grail and a whole lot of pseudo-science/mysticism. This results in the most powerful members of the All-Stars going all evil and trying to kill their fellow members!

The conversation is fast, loose, and lively — centering around the use of racial epithets in the context of stories set in the past and why Mike freakin’ hates the Dragon King. PLUS — there are ads (including a Hostess ad involving the Penguin where the Gotham PD actually does something for once in their miserable lives)!!

Also — Elsewhere in the DC Multiverse!!

Then, it’s back to the Corolla (which really sucks because, for some reason, when the car is idling the air conditioning stops working and hot air blows out of the vents!! It’s summer, for crying out loud!! IT IS HOT!!) and a quick jaunt ahead to the somewhat more recent Earth-2 timeline where the fellas discuss the Huntress back-ups from WONDER WOMAN #271 through 273.

The guys don’t have too much to say about this story because it is… well… goofy as hell. I mean, the main thrust of this story is the fact that Solomon Grundy is leading a gang and stealing art. Seriously. Solomon Grundy: Gang Leader. Who in their their right mind would belong to a gang led by Solomon Freakin’ Grundy?! He’s A Zombie, For Chrissakes!!

After trying to make heads or tails of that, the guys read some of YOUR e-mails!! Scott reveals his TRUE FEELINGS about the Super Friends — during which Mike very nearly steps in it regarding the live action SHAZAM series, until Scott finally realizes the point Mike was trying to make — and thus WAR is narrowly avoided.

TWO HOURS OF THE BEST PODCASTING YOU WILL HEAR ALL WEEK! Guaranteed or we start shooting the hostages!!

Next week: ALL-STAR SQUADRON #5 and BRAVE AND THE BOLD #182. Make sure you take some good notes because there will be a quiz!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #32 — The All-Star Squadron Coverage Continues!!

0d9c

Welcome back to the TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!

This week, Scott and Mike continue their trip in the way back machine as they take a look at issues 2 and 3 of the ALL-STAR SQUADRON!! And, boy oh boy, were these two FANTASTIC and FREAKISHLY AWESOME issues!!

This episode concludes the first story arc for the All-Stars and, in true adventure series fashion, the action begins on one side of the country and ends on the other! The All-Stars, newly formed by FDR himself, are off on their first official mission, but not before taking a moment to beat the living bejeezus out of a group of thugs who picked entirely the wrong freakin’ day in American history to try to pull off a job!! The All-Stars are soon bound for Frisco and we learn the origins of all of the heroes in attendance. As if THAT wasn’t enough, we learn the hows and whyfors of Per Degaton’s plans, too! Why is he attacking San Francisco? How did all of the villains appear out of their own times? Just who in the hell prints out the lettering for the self-destruct buttons? All of these questions and more are discussed!! (Notice we said “discussed”, not “answered.)

But that’s not all! There are ads!! Sad and pathetic little ads to be sure, but two of them ARE Hostess related and that can only mean one thing, gentle listener — COMEDY GOLD! In these ads, you get Batman fighting a horrible film director and Red Tornado battles the fact that Mike and Scott are mentally fourteen years old. Plus, it’s the return of Elsewhere in the DC Multiverse where Scott and Mike catch up on FOUR MONTHS worth of the other titles that were released alongside All-Star Squadron issues 1 through 3 — and go on a series of tangents so wild you’ll wonder if they forgot what the show was about…

Next week: All-Star Squadron #4 …where All-Star BATTLES All-Star!! Be There!! Or I’m telling your mom!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #31 — The All-Star Squadron!!

0d9c

A BOLD NEW ERA BEGINS FOR THE “TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!”

This is it, folks! This week, Scott and Mike begin their look at the best Earth-2 title EVER… THE ALL-STAR SQUADRON! In this extra-sized episode, the guys kick things off in fine style! First, they talk about why this series is so important to them and why, in many ways, THIS is the podcast they’ve wanted to do from the start. You also get to hear about a piece of art Scott received that made both he and Mike laugh and laugh and laugh.

Then, they get down to business with ALL-STAR SQUADRON #0 (the bonus book insert in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #193) where the members of the Justice Society of America are attacked by enemies they have never faced — yet the villains seem to know the heroes well!!

Then, in ALL-STAR SQUADRON #1, we meet the rest of the cast as the events of December 7, 1941 play out. But, who is this red-headed villain that has assembled a team of villains from the future? And what plans does he have for San Francisco? Find out in this exciting first issue!

But that’s not all!! There are ads! Lots of ads! They aren’t quite the ads of old, but there they are! And Mike and Scott present not one but TWO Hostess ads! The first with Green Arrow, who nearly bites off more than he can chew, and the second with Batgirl and a bunch of anorexic criminals who would rather eat than steal! Finally, the guys address some of YOUR e-mails!

This very special episode runs a little long, we know, but we’re sure you’ll agree that it is chalk full of that TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY goodness! Your complete satisfaction guranteed or your money back!!
Stay tuned in the weeks and months to come as Mike and Scott delve deeper into the World War II era Earth-2!!
