Tales of the Justice Society of America #46

0d9c

Welcome to Episode 46 of Tales of the Justice Society of America!

This week, Scott and Mike aren’t screwing around, Dear Listeners!  There is no introductory discussion this week as the guys just jump right into the third chapter in the EPIC Crisis on Earth-Prime storyline. 

Chapter Three takes place in Justice League of America #208, which boasts a fantastic George Perez cover featuring all of the main players completely mesmerized by the awesome ‘fro that the mushroom cloud-headed Per Degaton is sporting.  He is sure to be a hit with the ladies, assuming they don’t die of radiation poisoning first. 

This exciting chapter of the story tells the full story of why Earth-Prime is a desolate, holocaust-torn landscape in 1982 full of mutants and Aussie ex-cops trying to get a tanker truck full of gas to those that need it despite the bikers that want to stop them is revealed.  Or… something like that.

You’ll love the funny bit involving a VCR!  (If you don’t know what a VCR is, Scott and Mike suddenly feel REALLY old)

There is also a lot of fun discussion — including a quick history lesson on how DC completely screwed over the history of Hawkman; a brief discussion on the movie Fat Man and Little Boy (which leads to a discussion on Star Trek: The Next Generation because for minute Mike and Scott thought this was Star Trek Monthly Monday or something); a reminder on why Per Degaton stories bother Scott and Mike; Mike’s terrible John Travolta impersonation; Don Heck’s artwork; why Firestorm is kind of like Geordi La Forge (because – again – the guys think this is Star Trek Monthly Monday); why Kennedy probably wouldn’t have nuked Earth-Prime; and so much more!!

The guys also read a handful of YOUR e-mails!  WOW!!

Next time: All-Star Squadron #15, the penultimate chapter of Crisis on Earth-Prime!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #44

0d9c

WE’RE BACK!

That’s right, folks.  Despite previous reports of the demise of TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA the show is NOT dead.  In fact, Scott and Mike are back on a WEEKLY basis so Fridays just got interesting again. 

This time out the guys pick up where they left off, but surprisingly they will not be covering the next issue of ALL-STAR SQUADRON.  Starting this week Mike and Scott will be covering one of the best stories to come out of this era of ALL-STAR SQUADRONCRISIS ON EARTH PRIME.  Not only is this a major story-arc for the All-Stars but it also crosses over with another DC title namely JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA!  This is almost historic because while books crossover into each other all the time these days when this story was published it was like rare. 

CRISIS ON EARTH PRIME begins in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #207 and this one has it all, folks!  The Justice Society!  The Justice League!  The Crime Syndicate!  The All-Star Squadron (for all of five seconds)!  Sonny and Cher!  William Shatner!  The 1972 Miami Dolphins!  Paul Lynde!  Bea Arthur!  The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders!

Ok, 95% of those people don’t appear in this issue, but it’s a pretty awesome story anyway.  There is action, intrigue, super-heroes and time travel.  All the things a growing comic fan needs.

Next Week: ALL-STAR SQUADRON #14 and the second part of CRISIS ON EARTH PRIME!

Alternate Reality – Episode #278

It’s show time at Alternate Reality headquarters as we settle in to talk about some DVDs that we’ve been watching. It’s only fitting that on this auspicious occasion that we be joined by Eric Peterson (back from the dead apparently) to look at both Planet Hulk, and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths DVDs. It’s like Eric never left as the subtle jabs, backhanded comments, and passive aggression are all back in full force. My how we’ve missed him. You won’t wanna miss this titular episode with the one and only Eric Partin. ……. hehehehe.

Enjoy!
