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Then we get a re-worked version of the first half of the unpublished STEEL: THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN #6, which proves to Mike that his high opinion of Don Heck’s work on STEEL was colored by Ordway’s inks over Heck’s pencils in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