This week we have a look at the final chapter of our Pluto story in The Mighty Thor #201! This time around we meet Heimdal’s dwarven slave, Hogun loses his helmet, Pluto murders a tree, Odin comes back to life, and Ego Prime comes to Earh! A lot going on here, so don’t miss it!
Happy Thanksgiving! As you all are stuffing yourself with turkey and giblets, why not listen to our coverage of Thor #199 from 1972? It’s Hela vs. the Greek god of death, Pluto… with Odin’s soul as the prize! Plus, Volstagg gets brave, and Sif, Hildegard, Capt Birdseye, and Tana Nile face… Ego Prime!
This week we have a look at the final chapter in our current storyline, as we cover The Mighty Thor #198! Odin is dead! Or is he? Thor fights the Mangog! Volstagg plays water-boy! Hogun finds an interesting way to use his mace, and Sif runs into someone with a very large head! Face front, true believers!
While you all are enjoying Thor’s throwdown with the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, we look this week at The Mighty Thor #196 from back in 1972, where the Thunder God faces not one, but TWO big bads, including Kartag the Caretaker and …the Mangog! Guest starring invisible walls, polka-dotted mist, and Captain Birdseye!
In this episode, we look at The Might Thor #196, in which we get the continuation of the war against Mangog, Sif and Hildegarde’s search for a motel, and a very special party! We also meet Mephisto’s sister, Fandral wants to kiss Thor’s “hammer” and Odin does his best Captain Kirk impression! Don’t miss it!
We continue our coverage this week of Hercules Unbound with issue #2! Hercules and Kevin face off against Cerebus! No, not the aardvark. The less interesting character with the blue dogs. This issue contains cruelty to animals, a bad British stereotype, Hercules mixing up his mythologies, and more! Don’t miss it!
There’s a whole lot to cover this episode! Ian and Brent are joined by long-time friends of the show, Donovan Morgan Grant of the The Comic Book Film Revue Podcast, and Chris Johnson, talk Netflix’s Daredevil series, with SPOILERS abound. We talk about the plot, characters, setting, and even his horns. From there, conversation meanders to Gerry Conway‘s issues with DC Comics and creator rights in general, followed by some talk about the first few weeks of DC’s Convergence. Oh, and a little bit of Megacon and MoCCA Fest reactions. Plenty of talk to go around, and even a DeFalco bomb or two for old time’s sake.
As always – we are sponsored by the newly redesigned DCBS! That’s right! Discount Comic Book Service! All comics from major publishers like Marvel, DC, Image and Dark Horse are 40% off or more. And hardcovers and trade paperbacks from Marvel and DC are at least 50% off! Plus, be sure to check out their Comixology digital storefront for even further savings!
That’s right, folks. Despite previous reports of the demise of TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA the show is NOT dead. In fact, Scott and Mike are back on a WEEKLY basis so Fridays just got interesting again.
This time out the guys pick up where they left off, but surprisingly they will not be covering the next issue of ALL-STAR SQUADRON. Starting this week Mike and Scott will be covering one of the best stories to come out of this era of ALL-STAR SQUADRON…CRISIS ON EARTH PRIME. Not only is this a major story-arc for the All-Stars but it also crosses over with another DC title namely JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA! This is almost historic because while books crossover into each other all the time these days when this story was published it was like rare.
CRISIS ON EARTH PRIME begins in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #207 and this one has it all, folks! The Justice Society! The Justice League! The Crime Syndicate! The All-Star Squadron (for all of five seconds)! Sonny and Cher! William Shatner! The 1972 Miami Dolphins! Paul Lynde! Bea Arthur! The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders!
Ok, 95% of those people don’t appear in this issue, but it’s a pretty awesome story anyway. There is action, intrigue, super-heroes and time travel. All the things a growing comic fan needs.
Next Week: ALL-STAR SQUADRON #14 and the second part of CRISIS ON EARTH PRIME!
