Radio Free Asgard 274

This week we wrap up the first half of Hercules Unbound with issue #6! It’s the final (for now!) face-off between Hercules and Ares! This issue features a dead bird, a dead dog, some seriously speedy horses, and a complete lack of knowledge of English geography!  Dare you miss this???

Radio Free Asgard 273

This week we have the conclusion of our Hunter Blood story in Hercules Unbound #5! This story involves a cockney gorilla taking Hercules to see a movie while Big Ben is on the verge of collapsing outside! Plus one of our party gets squished! (sorry, it wasn’t the writer…)

Radio Free Asgard 269

We continue our coverage this week of Hercules Unbound with issue #2! Hercules and Kevin face off against Cerebus! No, not the aardvark. The less interesting character with the blue dogs. This issue contains cruelty to animals, a bad British stereotype, Hercules mixing up his mythologies, and more! Don’t miss it!

Radio Free Asgard 268

This week, we move on to something new (for us, anyway) as we cover the first issue of the old DC Comics series, “Hercules Unbound”!

It’s Hercules vs. a variety of antagonists, including Magenta Hulk, weird octopuses, the lackeys of Ares: God of War! Plus, we learn how to survive a nuclear war!

Radio Free Asgard 260

This week we finish our “Loki steals the Odin Ring” story arc with The Mighty Thor #194! It’s a battle royale, as Thor and Loki duke it out as Sif whines, Balder and Karnilla agonize what to do, and worst of all, the Warriors Three wake up Odin! Don’t miss it!

Radio Free Asgard 259

It’s an extra-long show to cover an extra-long issue, The Mighty Thor #193! Gerry Conway makes his debut on the book, featuring Stan Lee’s leftovers, and co-starring… the Silver Surfer! Why? Well, because Stan said so! Nuff said!

Comic Timing – Episode 169: Daredevil, Creator Rights and Convergence

set_daredevil_netflix_640

There’s a whole lot to cover this episode! Ian and Brent are joined by long-time friends of the show, Donovan Morgan Grant of the The Comic Book Film Revue Podcast, and Chris Johnson, talk Netflix’s Daredevil series, with SPOILERS abound. We talk about the plot, characters, setting, and even his horns. From there, conversation meanders to Gerry Conway‘s issues with DC Comics and creator rights in general, followed by some talk about the first few weeks of DC’s Convergence. Oh, and a little bit of Megacon and MoCCA Fest reactions. Plenty of talk to go around, and even a DeFalco bomb or two for old time’s sake.

Tales of the Justice Society of America #44

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!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #28

Hey there, Cats and Kittens! We are back with racks and racks of the best on wax, so hows about another groovy sound-spin on WJSA because it’s BOSS?

No? Awright, awright, so maybe we DON’T have racks and racks of the best on wax, but we DO have The Origin of Power Girl in Showcase Comics 97 through 99 this week and BOY.. is it “meh”!! Compared to the Huntress Origin, which the guys LOVED so much, it’s pretty disappointing. Mike and Scott were expecting PG’s origin to be just as good. Sadly, not the case (queue the sad trombone). Now, the issues aren’t terrible or anything, but there is a LOT of goofy going on in them (some of which makes Mike just scratch his head and wonder “What the hell am I lookin’ at here?!”).

Afterwards, the guys come back with a bit o’ e-mail from THE BEST LISTENING AUDIENCE IN THE KNOWN MULTI-VERSE! Subjects include: “Guy Gardner — The Awesomesauce or Captain of the Douche-Bag Brigade”?; Scott’s curiosity over where the JSAers were during the Space Race; Why one listener REALLY likes the show (the check is in the mail, Justin); How Power Girl is a very “healthy” girl and some women just need to eat a frickin’ cheeseburger now and again; And the irony of the JSA’s faithful service to their country all during World War II, yet they were called on the carpet by the guv’ment in the Fifties!

Oh, and Mike goes off on a rant. A political one, which made Scott happy because he was tired of being the only one to do such a thing!

Next Week: The Huntress In BATMAN FAMILY! BE THERE!! Ahoha.

ARE YOU READY FOR MORE JLA/JSA AWESOMENESS?

Here is the final installment of The TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA‘s three-part look at the Justice League/Justice Society team-ups that took place after ALL-STAR COMICS #58!! This time, Scott and Mike are REALLY FREAKING EXCITED because BOTH of these stories feature art by the one and only GEORGE PEREZ! Not only that, but the stories are freaking amazing, too!

In the first story, the two teams of Justice come face to face with the New Gods as they fight to stop Darkseid from destroying EARTH-2! Sure, there are a few problems with the story (Scott takes issue with Superman whining about feeling like an outsider and Mike thinks that the New Gods were best left to Kirby), but there is a whole lot of fun in this tale and the art, after the first issue, kicks up to 11 because… did we mention that George Perez came on as artist during these stories? We did? Well, we’re going to say it again because GEORGE PEREZ IS COMPOSED OF 100% AWESOME!

Then, there’s what Mike believes to be the BEST JLA/JSA TEAM-UP of all freaking time (and Scott pretty much agrees)!! It’s the JLA and the JSA versus the NEW Secret Society of Super-Villains in a yarn that is damn near perfect from beginning to end! Not only do we get to see a really great team of villains being assembled, but we also get to see the Earth-2 Superman as drawn by George Perez!!

Did we mention George Perez? We did? Well, that’s because GEORGE PEREZ IS COMPOSED OF 100% AWESOME!

This is a beast of an episode, clocking in at nearly two hours, but we feel it is totally worth it! In fact, we guarantee it or your money back!!

Next week: THE RETURN OF LISTENER FEEDBACK!!

THE JLA/JSA CROSSOVER AWESOME SAUCE CONTINUES THIS WEEK!

Scott and Mike are back again, fresh from their escape… I mean release… yes… release from that loony bin… I mean mental health facility… yes… mental health facility… and there was no escape at all. Mike and Scott didn’t stick the pills they were given to take under their tongues and empty the contents into a napkin and then drug the night attendant and then rip the water fountain out of the floor, throw it through the window, and flee into the night. None of that happened and if anyone asks you about it you don’t know anything, all right? All right.

Um, anyway… this week, the guys continue their look at the Justice League of America /Justice Society of America crossovers that took place after ALL-STAR COMICS #58 with two stories — one that involves time travel and another that involves the Justice Society being real douche bags to a fellow hero!!

In JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #s 159 and 160, heroes from the past (including one of Scott’s all time favorites, Jonah Hex!!) are used by the Lord of Time to mess with the JLA/JSA. There’s a lot of wonky in this story, and Scott has far more to say about it than Mike, but what’s new, right? RIGHT? :taps microphone: Is this thing on?

Then, in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #s 171 and 172, the teams get together and, as per usual, someone dies!! For once, it’s NOT one the “escorts” that Batman brings around and that tend to end up crushed and mangled after Superman gets into the Captain Morgan. This time, it’s… well, I’d say it was a member of the JSA, but Mister Terrific, as Hawkman is so quick to point out after Terrific assumes room temperature, wasn’t “really” a part of their little clique now, was he? This is an old-fashioned, closed-door murder mystery with Batman and the Huntress trying to figure out who did the deed, leaving Scott and Mike to try to figure out why the Justice Society were being such utter dicks to a fellow super-hero. Seriously!! They cut this guy ZERO freaking slack and then, after he dies, they act like it’s no big deal!! Frankly, the guys are surprised that they put any effort into solving the murder at all!!

Lastly, be sure to join Scott and Mike next week as they look at the final two JLA/JSA crossovers that occur “before” ALL-STAR SQUADRON!! One involves Darkseid, the other involves the Secret Society of Super-Villains!! Be there (or Mike and Scott will short-sheet ya)!!

“Required Reading” for next week — JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (Vol. 1) #s 183 thru 185 and 195 thru 197!!
