Tales of the Justice Society of America #26

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!!

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 #15

0d9c

Hey, Kids!! What time is it? It’s “Tales of the Justice Society of America” time, of course!! (kinda like Peanut Butter Jelly Time only longer and less annoying)

This is kind of an odd episode, but don’t let that scare you because — Hell, they’re ALL odd episodes, right?!! Don’t tell me you hadn’t noticed. Anyhow, there is a LOT of awesome Justice Society talk to be had this time ’round, beginning with a “thought provoking” discussion about precisely which team Power Girl “plays for” romantically-speaking. Then, the guys dive into the two big JSA TV appearances of late — the SMALLVILLE “movie”, “ABSOLUTE JUSTICE” (which, wonder of wonders, miracles of miracles, Scott actually watched and has some good things to say about!) and “The Golden Age of Justice” episode of BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD (in which Mike and Scott debate the merits of the series as a whole and Scott speaks of his “issues” with the show). The conversations range from talk about Lois Lane (including just how incredibly hot Dana Delany really is) to just what the guys thought of this first live-action interpretation of their beloved JSA.

There are also e-mails galore, which the guys love reading on the air so keep ’em coming, and THEN — The Main Event — Scott and Mike discuss DC SUPER-STARS #17, featuring the origin of the Huntress!

Last but not least — the feature you just can’t get enough of — The Hostess ads!! Yup, they just continue gettin’ weirder as — (gasp!!) Wonder Woman fights a billboard! Heh, we couldn’t make this shit up if we tried!

Also, a surprise BONUS ad so bizarre that it has to be heard to be believed!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America – Episode #14

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 #13

0d9c

Hey! HEY!! The week ain’t over yet, fanboy! Not until you’ve had your heapin’-helping of another fun-filled, exciting, and thrill-packed episode of TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!

Scott and Mike kick lucky #13 off with still more of YOUR thought-provoking e-mails and have SO MUCH FUN reading and discussing them that they spend over an hour doing so! Yikes! A whole lotta ground gets covered, including a discussion of geek elitism and just exactly why Mike HATES Johnny Thunder with the fire of a thousand suns!! (He has anger management issues, folks)

After that, the guys discuss All-Star Comics #68 and ask the HARD QUESTIONS!! Such as — What the hell did the Gotham Airport do to piss off so much Alan Scott anyway?! — And — If nothing less than a bursting shell can break Power Girl’s skin, why does simply running into a wall knock her the f*** out?!

Sadly, no Hostess ad again this week (there really oughta be a law!), but there was a TON OF AWESOME going on elsewhere in the DC Multiverse and so the guys try to take some consolation in covering that.

All of this PLUS — Mike and Scott fight a grizzly bear with nothing but guts, determination, and a spork!!

Just kidding on that last one… or — are we…???

Tales of the Justice Society of America – Episode #12

It’s that time again, folks! No not Miller Time, you lush! I’m talking about “Tales of the Justice Society of America” time! Whoo-hoo!!

This week, Scott and Mike kick things off with more of YOUR e-mails and the usual discussion/tangents/rants that they inspire. Listen to hear The Amazing Scott predict something eerily close to the I-Pad well before it was even announced!!

Then, it’s on to DC Special #29 which features the Most Sensational Secret of World War II — The Untold Origin of the Justice Society and how they came to be!! See (or at the very least hear anyway) how it all began as the guys cover this spectacular issue from top to bottom — including Mike proving that he does indeed have a very large chip on his shoulder when it comes to proving how what a big comic book brain he supposedly has!!

Special appearance by Uncle Adolf!!

After that are the ads and, sadly, they’re not quite up to par. I mean, For Pete’s Sake, there wasn’t even a Hostess ad in this one (which Mike and Scott are fairly certain violated some law from this time period)!!

All of this — PLUS — What else was lookin’ good in the DC Multiverse at this time!!

:Sigh: I still can’t get over there not being any Hostess ad in this issue. That’s just downright Un-American!

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”!!

Michael Bailey and Scott H. Gardner are back, having survived the holidays, for even more outrageous fun with the JSA!! In this episode, they read a bit more fantastic listener feedback, enjoy a creepy-weird tale of the Golden Age gas-mask-wearing Sandman from All-Star Comics #3 (the JSA’s very first adventure), and discuss issue #63 of All-Star Comics which features a throw-down with everybody’s favorite big, dumb zombie — Solomon Grundy!! Hourman is in the Character Spotlight this issue and — BECAUSE YOU DEMAND IT! — even more zany comic book ads!!

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!!
