Tales of the Justice Society of America #35

0d9c

 

“TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA” featuring The All-Star Squadron RETURNS!
 
Yes, the internet radio show you just can’t get rid of (and why would you want to?!) is back with EVEN MORE exciting World War II-era JSA adventures — plus a bonus or two thrown in just because Mike and Scott love ya!
 
This week, the guys start out with ALL-STAR SQUADRON #6, which wraps up the Feathered Serpent storyline. This is a weird one because Scott and Mike have some fairly positive things to say about it (gasp!), but the problems were pretty epic. For one thing, the truth behind the Feathered Serpent is the worst kind of wonky and showcased one of several of Scott and Mike’s least favorite comic book cliches (and, you know these guys, they spend a lot of time whining about it). 
 
However, there is much gushing over NEW ARTIST Adrian Gonzales and his dynamic stylings. Plus — The LISTENER-FAVORITE FEATURE — The Hostess Ad!! This week: Featuring the Fastest Man Alive — The Flash! With guest-villain Kenny Rogers as Dumbledore! 
 
Stand by after the break for MORE of The Huntress back-up stories from Wonder Woman #s 274-276. This exciting story, which was a vast improvement over the last storyarc, sees the Huntress team-up with gal-pal Power Girl to fights… The Thinker!  
 
This was a really solid story with a bit of a weak ending, and the art is a little odd in places, but STILL — it was Power Girl and Huntress teaming up!! Sadly, there are no ‘Cinemax-at-3-o’clock-in-the-morning’ moments.
 
…bummer…
 
You get ALL of this PLUS listener feedback AND ‘Elsewhere in the DC Multiverse’, too!! Not a bad deal for just 3 easy installments of $99.95 each!!
 
Next week: ALL-STAR SQUADRON #7 and MORE of The Huntress back-up feature!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #23

0d9c

Welcome to Episode #23 of “TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA“, which sadly sees the closing of the first era of this podcast as we cover the last two JSA stories from ADVENTURE COMICS. At least 27 minutes of audio had to be cut because Michael couldn’t stop crying like a big baby. Before that happened, though, Scott and Mike read some more of YOUR e-mails and the usual subjects of the JSA appearance on SMALLVILLE and BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD came up in addition to other musings from the BEST PODCAST-LISTENING AUDIENCE IN THE KNOWN MULTI-VERSE!!

Then, the guys get right into ADVENTURE COMICS #s 465 and 466! In #465, Mike and Scott scratch their heads a lot at the general goofy nature of the story and ask seemingly unimportant questions like — WHY IN THE HELL IS A HOSPITAL DEVELOPING A POISON PILL THAT’LL DISSOLVE IN FIVE HOURS AN KILL THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE?!! In issue #466, they discuss the REAL reason the JSA disbanded in 1953! The guys love this story despite a few nit-picks (but what else is new, right?).

Also in this episode — THE ADS RETURN! Whoo-hoo!! THERE’S EVEN A HOSTESS AD — THAT DOESN”T INVOLVE BASEBALL! Plus, Mike and Scot catch up on the “Elsewhere in the DC Universe” segment (including some issues they missed last month, the fools!).

So, :sniff, sob: The JSA’s ongoing adventures may be over (for now), but there is still A LOT of awesome to come!! “Required Reading” for next week — JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (Vol. 1) #s 135-137, 147 & 148, and 159 & 160. That’s right, folks! You asked for it and they’re bringing it! Scott and Mike WILL be tackling the JLA/JSA crossovers that took place AFTER the release of ALL-STAR COMICS #58.

Tales of the Justice Society of America #20

Welcome back to the best thing to happen to comics since… well, since ever! TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA is back and this week Scott and Mike are all business, turning in a lean and mean episode as the show reaches its first bittersweet milestone — the final issue of All-Star Comics!!

Yes, you read that right, folks. Sadly, ALL-STAR COMICS reaches the end of its run with issue #74 and while the cover proclaims this issue “an EPIC JSA story”, the contents seem to indicate otherwise. Not that it’s a bad story, mind you! Mike and Scott have just a few problems with it. Ok… maybe more than just a few problems with it… :sigh: okay, okay… a whole lotta problems with it!! Like, for example, how Dr. Fate is a big ol’ hypocrite. Or Hawkman’s massive ego. Not to mention the fact that… you guys are so not gonna believe this… the JSAers sit on their hands and do nothing! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! This issue was a super-sized mixed bag of messed up, but Mike and Scott cover it all including — the ads (which have a ton of info about the very short lived DC Explosion)!!

No e-mails or Hostess ads this week, but this episode is still sixteen different flavors of awesome!! Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back!! Offer not valid in Tennessee. Void where prohibited. Tales of the Justice Society of America is not responsible for improper use of this podcast. Side effects may include: runny nose, tears streaming down face, aching side muscles, the condition known as doubled-over back syndrome, and assorted other maladies associated with laughing too frickin’ hard. Seek immediate medical attention for smiles lasting more than four hours.

So go ahead… give it a listen already!

Tales of the Justice Society of America – Episode #14

0d9c

Well, it’s Friday once again and that can only mean one thing! No, not that it’s time to go get hammered and pick up a stranger at a singles’ bar!! It’s time for the latest and greatest episode of the World’s Most Superexcellencious Podcast — ‘TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA’! Whoo-hoo!!

Scott managed to get Mike to lay off the Wild Turkey for a day and crank out another installment and this one features one of the best issues of ALL-STAR COMICS yet! But before all that, there are the fantastic e-mails where Scott gets to lay some love on the much-maligned STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER. Also, a listener gets a little creepy — leading Mike and Scott to seriously consider filing for yet another restraining order.

After that — ALL-STAR COMICS #69, where the guys once again ask the hard questions — such as, why is Power Girl such a freakin’ big mouth?!

But wait…there’s more!! Act now and you also get Scott and Mike going over some truly awesome ads including — the EXCITING RETURN OF THE HOSTESS ADS!

Shudder at the aweseome menace of — ICEBERG HEAD!! (Has Aquaman ever had a really good villain?)
