Chris and Reggie talk about old comic books and comics history every week!

    Morituri Mondays, Episode 24 - Strikeforce: Morituri #24 (12/88)

    Morituri Mondays, Episode 24 - Strikeforce: Morituri #24 (12/88)

    Remember that beacon that Dr. Tuolema set off in the very last pages of the Gillis & Anderson run?  Did you think our new creative team was just going to let that fall by the wayside?  Well... so did we.  Thankfully, that wasn't the case... and here is where those chickens will start coming home to roost!
    Strikeforce: Morituri #24 is another solid issue of the post-G&A run... and we hope you'll decide to give it a try (or, a retrial, as it were).  We've got new aliens, new recruits, and a new direction... that doesn't outright contradict the old one.  All that, and the (brief) return of... Will DeGuchi!  What more could we ask for... well, besides Gillis and Anderson, of course.
    Also: Discussions of ninjas, Airwolf, bubble gum and a whole lot more!

    Cosmic Treadmill Presents... Comix Tawk, Episode 12: "The Softening of Comic Book Villainry"

    Cosmic Treadmill Presents... Comix Tawk, Episode 12: "The Softening of Comic Book Villainry"

    Hello all of you mind-bendingly supportive and good-looking listeners!
    First thing: we know "villainry" isn't a real word. In this episode, we're talking about how comic book villains, once wholly evil and without origin stories, have become more relatable and "humanized" over time--to the point that it's tough to tell which are the heroes and which are the villains in some of today's comic books! We have our own opinions, but we'd love to hear yours. Let us know what you think!

    Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 37: Big Daddy Danger #1 (2002)

    Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 37: Big Daddy Danger #1 (2002)

    Big Daddy Danger, what's that?  Well, it's a little discussed/little known DC Comic about a superhero professional wrestler.  Why are we talking about it?  Well, how else would I be able to shoe-horn a conversation about my own life and times as a professional wrestler... for about six months or so.
    It's a story of stupidity, obsession, and putting oneself in very dangerous situations... after that, there's also a comic to talk about!
    Trigger Warning: Part of this episode ventures into some darker-than-expected territory... which I did not anticipate when I started recording.

    Morituri Mondays, Episode 23 - Strikeforce: Morituri #23 (11/88)

    Morituri Mondays, Episode 23 - Strikeforce: Morituri #23 (11/88)

    Could it be... that Strikeforce: Morituri has returned to form?  An issue of the post-Gillis/Anderson run that didn't make us want to run for the hills???  Well, believe it, friends... because we have a heck of an issue to chat about today!
    If you dropped this show like you dropped this book back in 1988... we humbly ask you to give this new creative team a try along with us!  We don't think you'll regret it!
    Today we have corporate and political intrigue, Morituri-adult-fun-time, and an examination of what it might mean for Earth-1287 now that conscription (which we might've called "transcription" a few times during the episode) appears to be a viable option for the Paideia!
    Also, all the usual nonsense... including a fun Pro-File for Editor/Colorist Gregory Wright, and some odd advertisements where we discuss mail-away action figures, CDs for pennies scams, and that time the current President of the United States shilled for M&M's???
    We hope you join us and enjoy!  Spread the word!

    Cosmic Treadmill Presents... Comix Tawk, Episode 11: "Teen Titans, the Early Years"

    Cosmic Treadmill Presents... Comix Tawk, Episode 11: "Teen Titans, the Early Years"

    Hey Gang!
     
    Have a title-specific installment of Comix Tawk to share this week... which was meant to be the first episode of a multi-part series wherein we discussed the lives and times of the Teen Titans.
     
    Rather than referring to this as a "Part One", we will just look at it as our look at "The Early Years" of that team we enjoy so much.
     
    Any memories of the Titans?  New?  Teen?  Team?  Lemme know, I always love chatting about 'em!

    Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 36: Batman #458 (1991)

    Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 36: Batman #458 (1991)

    Hi Everybody!
     
    Chris is on Infinite Earths returns after an extended hiatus to discuss a very interesting issue of Batman... featuring a strange fellow who would linger in the background for years to come.
     
    This episode includes an extended introduction with a lot of housekeeping, Q&A, and introspection... which, if that ain't your thing and you'd still like to hear me drone on about Batman and Harold, feel free to hop to around the 45-46 minute mark of the show.
     
    The inspiration to discuss this issue in particular has to do with "schoolyard myths" and local urban legends... a topic I enjoy quite a bit.  Join me to learn all about the Diaperman of Oakdale... and the most dread Sayville Skate Rats!
     
    I'd love to hear and discuss some of your local legends!  If you've got any, please reach out!
