Tales of the Justice Society of America #30

0d9c

Welcome to a kind of… off-beat episode of the TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!

This week, Scott and Mike continue their examination of other JSAer/Earth-2 related stories by focusing on the Golden Age Green Lantern himself — Alan Scott!!

First, the guys look at THE FLASH (Vol. 1) #268 and, to be honest, this comic turned out to have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Alan Scott!! Oh, sure the Golden Age Green Lantern is right there on the freakin’ cover, but it all turns out to be a trick!! An evil, evil trick. And not only that, but the story itself sucks so badly it actually has its own event horizon!!

Then it’s on to the Golden Age Green Lantern back-up stories from GREEN LANTERN (Vol. 2) #s 108 to 110 where the Earth-2 GL has to fight for his life against another bearer of the Green Flame!!

Finally, in Green Lantern #s 111 and 112, the Earth-1 and Earth-2 Green Lanterns team-up and, wouldn’t you know it, Green Arrow hangs around like the fifth wheel he is. Seriously, the dude serves no function to the story whatsoever. Okay, so he shared top billing with Green Lantern on this title… but still!! C’mon! He’s just so freakin’ annoying!! Anyhow, this adventure does deal with an alien entity stealing the Starheart. What’s the Starheart, you ask? Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out now, won’t you?

Be sure to stick around afterward as Scott makes a STARTLING ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING THE FUTURE OF TALES OF THE JSA PODCAST! YOU MUST HEAR THIS!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #19

CALLING ALL JSA FANS! CALLING ALL JSA FANS! The time has come once again for us all to come together and celebrate as Michael Bailey and Scott H. Gardner proudly present the nineteenth episode of the best thing to EVER happen to the Internet — TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA! Whoo-hoo!!

It is a packed ninety minutes this week, but every bit is guaranteed to leave you spellbound with intrigue or your money back! Scott and Mike begin the show by revealing not only the winner of their first contest (you know, the one they talked about once and then never mentioned again?), but also the super-secret identity of just where the heck the show’s main theme comes from!

Then Scott goes through a couple of recent finds and once again they are reminded just how messed up Dr. Fate’s origin and marriage are. Next up are the ever-awesome e-mails where YOU the listener get to have your say and the guys once again go off on a number of tangents, but manage to contain themselves somewhat better than they usually do!

It’s down to business as they get into the penultimate issue of All-Star Comics with issue #73. This epic tale concludes the Thorn storyline and sees the Huntress (no, the other one!) locked in mortal combat with the Huntress (no, the OTHER one!) while the rest of the JSA battles with both Thorn and the Sportsmaster all while Wildcat fights for his life! Mike doesn’t have too many problems with this issue, but Scott (as usual) has quite the list of quibbles — all of which are pure comedy gold!

Finally, we have the ads and there are some good ones this week, including a Hostess ad featuring the Man of Steel hisself…

PLUS — A BONUS AD!! One that inadvertently set many a young boy on the path to a life of crime…
