Tales of the Justice Society of America #43

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!

“TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA” featuring The All-Star Squadron RETURNS!
 
Yes, the internet radio show you just can’t get rid of (and why would you want to?!) is back with EVEN MORE exciting World War II-era JSA adventures — plus a bonus or two thrown in just because Mike and Scott love ya!
 
This week, the guys start out with ALL-STAR SQUADRON #6, which wraps up the Feathered Serpent storyline. This is a weird one because Scott and Mike have some fairly positive things to say about it (gasp!), but the problems were pretty epic. For one thing, the truth behind the Feathered Serpent is the worst kind of wonky and showcased one of several of Scott and Mike’s least favorite comic book cliches (and, you know these guys, they spend a lot of time whining about it). 
 
However, there is much gushing over NEW ARTIST Adrian Gonzales and his dynamic stylings. Plus — The LISTENER-FAVORITE FEATURE — The Hostess Ad!! This week: Featuring the Fastest Man Alive — The Flash! With guest-villain Kenny Rogers as Dumbledore! 
 
Stand by after the break for MORE of The Huntress back-up stories from Wonder Woman #s 274-276. This exciting story, which was a vast improvement over the last storyarc, sees the Huntress team-up with gal-pal Power Girl to fights… The Thinker!  
 
This was a really solid story with a bit of a weak ending, and the art is a little odd in places, but STILL — it was Power Girl and Huntress teaming up!! Sadly, there are no ‘Cinemax-at-3-o’clock-in-the-morning’ moments.
 
…bummer…
 
You get ALL of this PLUS listener feedback AND ‘Elsewhere in the DC Multiverse’, too!! Not a bad deal for just 3 easy installments of $99.95 each!!
 
Next week: ALL-STAR SQUADRON #7 and MORE of The Huntress back-up feature!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #33

WELCOME TO YET ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF EARTH-2 COMIC BOOK AWESOME SAUCE!

That’s right, folks. This week, Scott and Mike hop back into the Flux Capacitor fueled 1991 Toyota Corolla (c’mon, like either one of these clowns could afford a DeLorean!) and head back to December, 1941 to talk about ALL-STAR SQUADRON #4.

In this exciting issue, the All-Stars head to Pearl Harbor and decide that it is high time to take the fight to the Japanese! Problem is that the Dragon King, evil agent of the Axis powers, is ready for them with the Holy Grail and a whole lot of pseudo-science/mysticism. This results in the most powerful members of the All-Stars going all evil and trying to kill their fellow members!

The conversation is fast, loose, and lively — centering around the use of racial epithets in the context of stories set in the past and why Mike freakin’ hates the Dragon King. PLUS — there are ads (including a Hostess ad involving the Penguin where the Gotham PD actually does something for once in their miserable lives)!!

Also — Elsewhere in the DC Multiverse!!

Then, it’s back to the Corolla (which really sucks because, for some reason, when the car is idling the air conditioning stops working and hot air blows out of the vents!! It’s summer, for crying out loud!! IT IS HOT!!) and a quick jaunt ahead to the somewhat more recent Earth-2 timeline where the fellas discuss the Huntress back-ups from WONDER WOMAN #271 through 273.

The guys don’t have too much to say about this story because it is… well… goofy as hell. I mean, the main thrust of this story is the fact that Solomon Grundy is leading a gang and stealing art. Seriously. Solomon Grundy: Gang Leader. Who in their their right mind would belong to a gang led by Solomon Freakin’ Grundy?! He’s A Zombie, For Chrissakes!!

After trying to make heads or tails of that, the guys read some of YOUR e-mails!! Scott reveals his TRUE FEELINGS about the Super Friends — during which Mike very nearly steps in it regarding the live action SHAZAM series, until Scott finally realizes the point Mike was trying to make — and thus WAR is narrowly avoided.

TWO HOURS OF THE BEST PODCASTING YOU WILL HEAR ALL WEEK! Guaranteed or we start shooting the hostages!!

Next week: ALL-STAR SQUADRON #5 and BRAVE AND THE BOLD #182. Make sure you take some good notes because there will be a quiz!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #32 — The All-Star Squadron Coverage Continues!!

0d9c

Welcome back to the TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!

This week, Scott and Mike continue their trip in the way back machine as they take a look at issues 2 and 3 of the ALL-STAR SQUADRON!! And, boy oh boy, were these two FANTASTIC and FREAKISHLY AWESOME issues!!

This episode concludes the first story arc for the All-Stars and, in true adventure series fashion, the action begins on one side of the country and ends on the other! The All-Stars, newly formed by FDR himself, are off on their first official mission, but not before taking a moment to beat the living bejeezus out of a group of thugs who picked entirely the wrong freakin’ day in American history to try to pull off a job!! The All-Stars are soon bound for Frisco and we learn the origins of all of the heroes in attendance. As if THAT wasn’t enough, we learn the hows and whyfors of Per Degaton’s plans, too! Why is he attacking San Francisco? How did all of the villains appear out of their own times? Just who in the hell prints out the lettering for the self-destruct buttons? All of these questions and more are discussed!! (Notice we said “discussed”, not “answered.)

But that’s not all! There are ads!! Sad and pathetic little ads to be sure, but two of them ARE Hostess related and that can only mean one thing, gentle listener — COMEDY GOLD! In these ads, you get Batman fighting a horrible film director and Red Tornado battles the fact that Mike and Scott are mentally fourteen years old. Plus, it’s the return of Elsewhere in the DC Multiverse where Scott and Mike catch up on FOUR MONTHS worth of the other titles that were released alongside All-Star Squadron issues 1 through 3 — and go on a series of tangents so wild you’ll wonder if they forgot what the show was about…

Next week: All-Star Squadron #4 …where All-Star BATTLES All-Star!! Be There!! Or I’m telling your mom!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America #31 — The All-Star Squadron!!

0d9c

A BOLD NEW ERA BEGINS FOR THE “TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!”

This is it, folks! This week, Scott and Mike begin their look at the best Earth-2 title EVER… THE ALL-STAR SQUADRON! In this extra-sized episode, the guys kick things off in fine style! First, they talk about why this series is so important to them and why, in many ways, THIS is the podcast they’ve wanted to do from the start. You also get to hear about a piece of art Scott received that made both he and Mike laugh and laugh and laugh.

Then, they get down to business with ALL-STAR SQUADRON #0 (the bonus book insert in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #193) where the members of the Justice Society of America are attacked by enemies they have never faced — yet the villains seem to know the heroes well!!

Then, in ALL-STAR SQUADRON #1, we meet the rest of the cast as the events of December 7, 1941 play out. But, who is this red-headed villain that has assembled a team of villains from the future? And what plans does he have for San Francisco? Find out in this exciting first issue!

But that’s not all!! There are ads! Lots of ads! They aren’t quite the ads of old, but there they are! And Mike and Scott present not one but TWO Hostess ads! The first with Green Arrow, who nearly bites off more than he can chew, and the second with Batgirl and a bunch of anorexic criminals who would rather eat than steal! Finally, the guys address some of YOUR e-mails!

This very special episode runs a little long, we know, but we’re sure you’ll agree that it is chalk full of that TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY goodness! Your complete satisfaction guranteed or your money back!!
Stay tuned in the weeks and months to come as Mike and Scott delve deeper into the World War II era Earth-2!!

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”!!
