Tales of the Justice Society of America #17

0d9c

Another Friday, another EXCITING and UTTERLY AWESOME Episode of TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA! We present to you a more normal-sized episode this time out, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t THE BEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO THE INTERNET… well, until next week’s episode anyway!

Scott and Mike lead things off with more of the fantastic e-mails that just keeping pouring in, which drives their unpaid intern to distraction but makes the guys happy as pigs in slop. EPIC discussion topics generated by your feedback include: non-sports trading cards; whether or not the original Bruce Wayne is corrupt; aging on Earth-2; the body odor of Swamp Thing and Solomon Grundy (those guys STINK!); the iPad and how may impact the future of the paper comic book; and even some more BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD and SMALLVILLE: ABSOLUTE JUSTICE talk!!

Then the fun really ramps up with a look at ALL-STAR COMICS #71. Thrill to how Mike and Scott talk about the many faces of the Huntress! Thrill again to the reasons why the Earth-1 characters don’t get called in as back-up! Thrill a third time to why Superman and Wildcat are mean drunks!

Finally, the ads come fast and furious and, in addition to hearing about which version of the future Scott wants to live in, there is the Hostess ad!! Surprisingly, this is the most coherent one yet.

Tales of the Justice Society of America – Episode #16

0d9c

HEY, GUYS! (And gals, too). Here ’tis… yet another awesome, jam-packed, high-octane, four-on-the-floor, pedal-to-the-metal (Mike reeeeally likes these car analogies, which is kind of ironic when you consider he really doesn’t care all that much about cars) episode of TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!

This week we present another extra-sized episode as Mike and Scott deal with even more of YOUR excellent e-mails and boy-o-boy do Scott and Mike have some great ones this week!! The guys dive head first back into the hot-topic debate that they accidentally sparked regarding Geek Elitism. There are some tears and some laughter, a few cheap shots at Scott’s expense, and a good ol’ fashinoned two-men-enter, one-man-leaves trip to The Thunderdome to see who rules Bartertown! All of this a result of the awesome e-mails the show receives, so keep ’em coming, friends!!

Next it’s on to ALL-STAR COMICS #70, which once again features a cover boast of an appearance by the Huntress yet once again she is barely in the issue. There’s also some speculatory talk about what Santa Claus does in the off season and they also pose the serious question of what the hell is up with the Star-Spangled Kid and his piss-poor work ethic!

And, of course, there are ads!! Yyyyyyyesssssss!! And there are some really good ads this time ’round, too! Ads that threaten to bankrupt Mike because he wants all of the comics that are shown! These are the type of ads that lead to a strong desire to see the ultimate showdown of might versus magic in —Superman VS. Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! It’s heat-vision versus a very shiny nose!! Be there! Ahoha!

Last, but never least, your favorite feature returns — The Hostess Ads. And, once again, said ad begs the question — “Just what the hell were the folks producing these ads smokin’ when wroting these things?!!”

Yes, Virginia, that is the Penguin with coo-coo clock/bird hybrid abominations as his henchmen!

You can’t make this shit up, I swear.

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 #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 #11

0d9c

Scott and Mike kick this episode off by going through some of the awesome e-mails that have accumulated over the past few weeks. That is, I suppose what Scott and Mike do could technically be called just reading e-mails. Other people might call it a more of a two-man support group as the guys get a whole LOT of stuff off their chests — which was exasperated by the fact that both of them were in VERY foul moods before they even began recording (these are two grumpy ol’ bastids, don’t forget!).

Afterwards, they delve into All-Star Comics #67, which, SHOCKINGLY, the verbose ones don’t have surprisingly little to say about!!

Are they ill??!! Listen to Find Out!!

And, of course, they love you so there is another hilarious Hostess ad this week — Pigeon Person is stealing the mountain, why is she stealing the mountain? (with apologies to William Shatner) — which begs the question: How precisely pray tell do you steal a F***ing Mountain?!!

Tales of the Justice Society of America – Episode #10

0d9c

The latest “Tales” is up and ready for download! So what the hell are you waiting for??!!

This week, Scott and Mike go off on a number of lovely tangents, including why Batman is a super-hero, dammit!! They also discuss the final story from All-Star Comics #3 (the first appearance of the JSA), which concerns the original Emerald Gladiator — GREEN LANTERN! Then they dive into All-Star Comics #66, which is an important issue not only because it has awesome Joe Staton/Bob Layton artwork but also because the name “Super Squad” is dropped from the book like a bad habit. Yaaay!

There is also the Character Spotlight feature (profiling Hawkman this time ’round) and a brand-spanking-new segment where Scott and Mike spend some time seeing what else was going on in the DC Multiverse at the time this issue of All-Star came out.

Oh, and there are the ads. Oh boy, are there ads!! Including — a Batman and Robin Hostess ad (which should surprise no one really since Batman and Robin starred in like 98.7% of all Hostess Ads, even the ones that appeared in Marvel Comics)!!
