Tales of the Justice Society of America #21


This week…the Death of a Legend!

No, we’re not talking about Scott finally losing at the Loudest Belch In America contest, which he has won for the last five years in row, or Mike stepping down as the official “I Can’t Believe I Ate The Whole Thing!” mascot for Papa Johns. This time out — one of the original heroes of Earth-2 dies!

Before that, though, Scott gives you the 411 on the marriage of the Earth-2 Superman to Lois Lane in the pages of ACTION COMICS #484, which leads to some lively conversation between the hosts. Then it is time for the e-mails. Thrill to the readings of feedback in which two participants climb up on the soapbox leaving Scott and Mike to delightedly cheer them on!! Truly, Tales of the JSA has THE BEST LISTENERS EVER!

It’s been proven by science, I tells ya!

Afterwards, the guys move into issue 461 and 462 of Adventure Comics and boy, did they like this story! Oh, sure they have their fair share of pithy comments and Mike offends every listener with an overbite!!

(Seriously, just because the guy had a really bad overbite when he was a kid, now that his teeth aren’t all jacked up he feels like he can make fun of others??!

Mike can be such a jerk sometimes.)

The guys also tackle the tough issues… like how Jay Garrick is an insensitive ass or Wildcat’s politically incorrect opinion on “a woman’s place” or how everyone wears their costume even when they’re eating or why Chief O’Hara is an out and out coward or how Bill Jensen is a big fat whiner or, sadly, how a legend can die.

It’s really very sad. Yes, it is. Bring your hankey.

Lastly, the guys go over the Daily Planet page from Adventure Comics #462 before catching you up on “Elsewhere in the DCU”. Man, there some fantastic covers discussed! Epically awesome covers! Plus, Mike gets to bitch about something that has ALWAYS bothered him about the movie THE LOST BOYS and discover why Scott still wants a comic book adaptation of SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE and ponders the dream team that should produce it.

No Hostess ad this week. Yeah, the guys are pretty bummed about it too…
