Just Another Fanboy #57 – Power Pack #19

To celebrate Thanksgiving I wanted to talk about a Thanksgiving comic. That’s why this is the episode in which I talk about Power Pack #19 by Louise Simonson, Brent Anderson, Scott Williams, Terry Austin, Scott Williams, Sam de la Rosa, Janet Jackson, and Joe Rosen.

When Katie secretly invites a hoard of Power Pack’s hero allies over for Thanksgiving dinner, things quickly spiral out of control…!

Deconstructing Comics #479: Some of the greatest Superman stories (or not)

Death of Superman

There’s no doubt that Superman is one of the most significant characters in the history of American comics. He ended up setting the template for what would be the dominant genre in American comics after the Comics Code came into effect. Of course, the types of stories told in those comics, and their tone, has varied wildly over the years, which makes it difficult to try to determine which stories are the best of the lot, but naturally people make the attempt, including DC Comics itself.

This week Kumar and Tim look at the 1980s collection “The Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told”, as well as Alan Moore’s “Whatever Happened To the Man of Tomorrow”, which is currently being published in a collection with two other Moore Superman stories. Are these actually the greatest Superman stories?

Featuring Batman’s superior party prep skills, swimming the interplanetary water spout, and the symbolism of the ads in the original printing of “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow”! *Choke*

Hey Kids, Comics! Volume 2 Episode 32 – X-Men “Days Of Future Past”

0d9c

Dateline:2013 – Micheal and Andrew delve into the physics of time travel and journey back and forth between today and 1980, bringing with them 2 of the finest comic books ever forged – Uncanny X-Men 141 and 142. They will inevitably meander onto other topics such as The Terminator, James Cameron, The Outer Limits, Harlen Ellison, Back To The Future and Andrew will confuse a past US President with a current day UK comedian. Their names are similar, all right! There is also a SPOILER FILLED discussion of Age Of Ultron (the comic not Avengers 2) somewhere you may want to avoid if you haven’t read that series.
