Tales of the Justice Society of America #18

0d9c

Remember last week when we said that episode 17 was the greatest thing to happen to the Internet EVER? Well, frankly… we lied!! Because THIS EPISODE IS THE GREATEST THING TO HAPPEN TO THE INTERNET EVER!!!! Mwwwwaahahahahahahaha!!!

Scott and Mike kick things off with e-mails and there is more talk of the JSA on the TV, which includes more on what problems Scott has with the BRAVE AND THE BOLD, a discussion on what sport produces the best athletes (hint: there are skates and a lot of fighting and no, the guys don’t talk about Tonya Harding!), and a few minutes on whether or not Earth-2 should come back!! Also, Mike challenges Scott to a no-holds barred, over the top, best of the best, roadhouse style debate on Guy Gardner! Finally, a listener brings up the geek elitism topic again and Mike is reduced to tears!

Actually that doesn’t really happen, but it’s still a darn good e-mail at any rate.*

Then the guys jump into ALL-STAR COMICS #72, which sees the JSA fighting the deadly Thorn! Commentary on this rather good issue includes, among other things, the wonky artwork, Flash’s inappropriate behavior at the group meeting, the Huntress being one of those obnoxious new people at work that ten seconds after being on the job starts trying to tell everyone what’s what, an odd tangent on Dick Grayson’s fighting ability, and whether or not Jay Garrick dyes his hair.

And BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT!! — Mike and Scott cover the ads! And what awesome, awesome ads they are. Ads for a Star Wars club. Ads for cool looking comics. Ads that show how dysfunctional the Marvel Family was. Also the fantastic DAILY PLANET page with more ASK THE ANSWER MAN questions! And of course… the Hostess ad. Sadly, Scott and Mike have to actually work hard to point out the messed up things in this one because oddly enough it actually makes sense!! Well… mostly.

* Note: Mike does the editing on this show, so the thirty minutes of Mike sobbing like a five year old whose blanket was taken away has “mysteriously” disappeared. Take that however you want to.

Tales of the Justice Society of America #17

0d9c

Another Friday, another EXCITING and UTTERLY AWESOME Episode of TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA! We present to you a more normal-sized episode this time out, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t THE BEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO THE INTERNET… well, until next week’s episode anyway!

Scott and Mike lead things off with more of the fantastic e-mails that just keeping pouring in, which drives their unpaid intern to distraction but makes the guys happy as pigs in slop. EPIC discussion topics generated by your feedback include: non-sports trading cards; whether or not the original Bruce Wayne is corrupt; aging on Earth-2; the body odor of Swamp Thing and Solomon Grundy (those guys STINK!); the iPad and how may impact the future of the paper comic book; and even some more BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD and SMALLVILLE: ABSOLUTE JUSTICE talk!!

Then the fun really ramps up with a look at ALL-STAR COMICS #71. Thrill to how Mike and Scott talk about the many faces of the Huntress! Thrill again to the reasons why the Earth-1 characters don’t get called in as back-up! Thrill a third time to why Superman and Wildcat are mean drunks!

Finally, the ads come fast and furious and, in addition to hearing about which version of the future Scott wants to live in, there is the Hostess ad!! Surprisingly, this is the most coherent one yet.

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?)

Tales of the Justice Society of America – Episode #8

0d9c

This episode, we start out with Scott H. Gardner answering the burning question — “What’s in the ***ing box?!” — which inadvertently sets Michael Bailey off on a tirade about event fatigue in modern comics. Then the discourse gets slightly…ummm, elevated with a…er, firm offering of up-lifting adventure with a cocksure Dr. Fate battling evil with a wave of his “magic wand” from All-Star Comics #3 (the JSA’s very first adventure).

The main feature is an analysis of issue #64 of All-Star Comics in which our heroes travel back to the magical kingdom of Camelot!! Character Spotlight this issue on Sir Justin, the Shining Knight, and last but not least — BECAUSE YOU DEMAND IT! — still more zany comic book ads!!

While elsewhere in Gotham City Firefly burns a Senior Citizens Community to the ground, Batman and Robin battle the macabre menace of — “The Muse”!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America – Episode 3

Why can’t super-villains simply be content to rob banks and leave Earth’s orbit and its supply of Hostess Cupcakes alone?!

0d9c

In this hilarious episode, hosts Michael Bailey and Scott H. Gardner read some listener feedback, take a peek at a portion of a classic JSA adventure, review All-Star Comics issue #59, deliver some JSA news, character spotlight one of Scott’s all-time favorite comic book heroes, the Earth-2 Robin, examining both the similarities as well as the vast differences between him and his Earth-1 counterpart, and finally wrap the whole thing up with a fascinating discussion of the classic and often zany comic book ads found in these great old issues — such as The Battle of The Century and The Cupcake Caper!!

Old-Fashioned Comic Book Nostalgia-y Goodness!!
