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!

AFTER A WEEK OFF TALES OF THE JSA IS BACK!

So yeah…ignore the talk of Black Friday because Mike and Scott were expecting this episode to be up last week but it just didn’t work out that way.  Nevertheless the guys have returned and have brought All-Star Squadron #13 with them.  This is a character driven story that gives us some down time after the “epic” battle the team had with Hastor.  The reviews are mostly positive though Scott and Mike do get a little serious when discussing one of the main plot points of the story.  This is as close as they ever want to get to an actual political discussion on the show.  Other than that it is the usual mix of banter, snark, Elsewhere in the Multiverse (courtesy of Mike’s Amazing World of DC Comics) and even a handful of e-mails there at the end.

HEADS UP, Y’ALL!  REMEMBER TO ALSO LISTEN TO THIS WEEK’S BACK TO THE BINS FOR SOME MORE EARTH-2 GOODNESS!  YOU’LL LOVE IT!  MIKE AND SCOTT PROMISE!

Next week: The first part of Crisis on Earth Prime!  Check out Justice League of America #207 for the first part of this truly epic storyline!

WAIT! BEFORE YOU LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE CHECK OUT BACK TO THE BINS #65! < YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED!

 

WELCOME BACK TO THE MOST AWESOME PODCAST ABOUT THE GOLDEN AGE DC CHARACTERS EVER!

 

It is a lean and mean episode this week as Scott and Mike were pressed for time but it is solid nonetheless!

 

This issue, All-Star Squadron #8, kicks off with Steel fighting the Black Assassin, a villain Scott believes is misnomered because the guy ISN’T black (and if comics had taught Scott one thing, it’s that if a character has the word “black” in their name then they are supposed to be black)!!

 

Then we get a re-worked version of the first half of the unpublished STEEL: THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN #6, which proves to Mike that his high opinion of Don Heck’s work on STEEL was colored by Ordway’s inks over Heck’s pencils in this and the next issue of ALL-STAR SQUADRON.

 

So all of that is composed of pure, 100-proof awesome, right? Nothing could possibly mess that up, right? WRONG! Kung the Assassin shows up and stinks up the joint. Seriously. This guy sucks out loud. Thankfully this doesn’t ruin the story and proves to be a mild speed bump in an otherwise fantastic issue.

 

The issue commentary is followed by a fairly long, but fascinating discussion on the merits of Jerry Ordway’s current art, which leads to talk of Superman and Captain Marvel. It’s a lengthy digression, to be sure, but was a lot of fun to record!

 

Finally, the guys dive into Elsewhere in the DC Multiverse and that rounds out the episode!

 

NEXT WEEK! ALL-STAR SQUADRON #9 AND THE END OF WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO STEEL!

 

YOU GOT THAT?!!  GOOD!  CUZ IT WILL BE THE MOST EPIC THING SINCE EVER ALL OVER AGAIN!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #36

0d9c

 

ONCE AGAIN, THE MOST AWESOME THING TO HAPPEN TO THE INTERNET (SINCE FREE PORN ANYWAY) IS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE!!

 

TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA is back and Scott and Mike are both tanked up on Jolt cola and Hostess fruit pies, so this is going to be a good one!

 

First up, the guys talk about ALL-STAR SQUADRON #7, which is set during the Christmas of 1941 leading Scott and Mike to talk about the whole Christmas in July experience from when they were younger and lived in the north.  They have predominantly positive things to say about the issue as a whole, mostly because it contains one of THE BEST Nazi themed super-villains ever — BARON BLITZKRIEG!  We even catch up on how the JSA is handling military life and are treated to a TRULY AWESOME sequence of Robotman beaching a Nazi submarine!!  Does it get any cooler?! 

 

Well, there’s also the usual historical notes and commentary.  There aren’t much in the way of ads this week and, sadly, the guys discuss their (gasp, choke, sob) FINAL HOSTESS AD for this series!! 

 

But it is a doozy , folks, and features the Dread Avenger hisself — The Batman — fighting a guy in a dog costume.

 

Not the Dark Knight’s finest moment, I’ll grant you, but it is made of 100% COMEDY GOLD!

 

After a quick break, the guys return with the Huntress back-up from WONDER WOMAN #277.  It’s a pretty basic story with the Huntress considering her options on what to do about the fact that D.A. Sims knows her secret identity — and one of these options is… MURDER!!  Also, we get the “big reveal” on just what is up with that secretary from Helena’s law firm — and this is where Mike really starts disliking the story, leading to one of the few big disagreements between Scott and Mike that was finally settled in The Thunderdome!

 

Two men entered and… well… two men left because Scott and Mike are really out of shape and got tired and decided to go have Mexican at El Ranchero in Peachtree City, GA (which is surprisingly close to Bartertown).
Anyhoo, you get all of that!!  AND some e-mails before the guys ran out of time — but they promise to read even more e-mails next time!!  How about that, huh?!

 

NEXT WEEK:  ALL-STAR SQUADRON #8

 

ALSO!!  Be sure to tune in to “Back to the Bins!” Next Wednesday as the guys discuss STEEL: THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN just in time for his introduction into the ALL-STAR SQUADRON!  That’s STEEL on Wedneday’s “BACK TO THE BINS!” and All-Star Squadron #8 on Friday’s “TALES OF THE JSA!”

 

YOU GOT THAT?!!  GOOD!  CUZ IT WILL BE THE MOST EPIC THING SINCE EVER!
