Tales of the Justice Society of America #45

WE’RE STILL BACK!

The best thing to EVER happen to the Internet returns for the second week in a row of brand spanking new episodes guaranteed to entertain you or your money back!*

(*Offer not vaild…anywhere.)

This week, Scott and Mike continue their look at the EPIC Crisis on Earth-Prime storyline that ran through All-Star Squadron and the first volume of Justice League of America.  Part Two took place in All-Star Squadron #14 and, while it did not further the story all that much, it was still an entertaining read.  Following the synopsis and notes section, Mike reads a missive from the letters page that leads to a rather lengthy discussion on why Nazis pretty much suck.  After that, the guys take a look at what else was going on in the DC Multiverse at the time and even read one of YOUR e-mails.

WINSTON CHURCHILL HIMSELF SAID THAT THIS IS A GREAT PODCAST!

Or, y’know, he would if he wasn’t all dead and stuff…

Well what are you waiting for?  LISTEN ALREADY!

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!

Because YOU Demanded It!! 

 

Tales of the Justice Society of America is back!

All righty…this show was rife with technical difficulties, so the usual posting fun has been suspended for the week. Just know that Scott and Mike talk about All-Star Squadron #12 and they didn’t like it much.

Because YOU Demanded It!! 

 

TALES is back and this time we come in at just under an hour. Why’s that? Well, this story isn’t exactly the greatest, let’s be honest. It’s not terrible! Not by a long shot. But, at the same time, Scott and Mike didn’t want to spend the whole time bashing it either because they really do love Roy Thomas as a writer… plus Mike had to meet up with his parole officer and he can’t be late for that. They tend to throw him in jail and stuff.
Anyway, we get more on the identity of the wacky alien what’s come to Earth to start a ruckus. There’s some fighting and, at the end, we find out who the ultimate bad guy is. Who is it, you ask? Well you’ll have to listen to the episode and find out! Duh.
Plus — the guys look at the ads, the letters page, and even read some of YOUR e-mails.
Next week: This story ends! Yaaaay!

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!!

CCL Podcast #165 – Todd DePastino, Bill Mauldin: A Life Up Front

Collected Comics Library Podcast #165

62,253Kb; 66m 08s

http://www.collectedcomicslibrary.com/

Today for the podcast I have a really fun and very informative interview with Todd DePastino author of Bill Mauldin: A Life Up Front and editor for Willie and Joe: The World War II Years (Fantagraphics). For decades Mauldin had been the voice of the Greatest Generation through his cartoons particularly with his most famous characters Willie and Joe. Todd and I go in-depth with both the biography and the upcoming cartoon collected edition.


Also in the show I cover a bit of news that I blogged about this past week including Shazam!, American Flagg and Carl Barks and Donald Duck. All this and new sponsor to the podcast, the Library Binding Company, the best place to get all those loose monthly comics bound into a nice hardcover.
