    Our other regular segments featured during the show are:
    - The Recommendations of Raggador
    - The Allies of Agamotto, in which we pay homage to Chase Grafton, who deemed us worthy of a 5 star iTunes review. A Bronze Age Alter Ego is his reward!

    Into The Weird Episode 19: Revenge Of The Fawn

    Into The Weird Episode 19: Revenge Of The Fawn

    This week Billy and Herman tackle the most unorthodox and madcap Superhero team of the Marvel Bronze Age - The dynamic DEFENDERS. The storyline in question is particularly off-centre, as it involves hefty amounts of BODY HORROR and BRAIN-SWAPPING. And if that wasn't enough, an enraged BAMBI is thrown into the mix, just for laughs. Plus, The Elf with a Gun makes a return.
    Due to this oversized episode only TWO segments are featured:
    1. Main Segment
    2. The Recommendations of Raggador!
    For our shout-out segment THE ALLIES OF AGAMOTTO, please give www.sinkintotheweird.com a look, where a Podcast Addendum post can be found. Feedback can be sent to sinkintotheweird@gmail.com. 
    Many thanks to our sponsor, the metal band SEVEN KINGDOMS, whose song IN THE WALLS serves as our Intro. Outro song Can't Get It Out Of My Head by ELO.

    Into The Weird Ep.17: Nazistein

    This week Billy and Herman take a look at THE INVADERS, featuring the Golden Age Marvel Heroes from the Timely Comics era, specifically INVADERS #31 (Aug. 1978). Basically, NAZIS DIE. So a good time is had by all. Except for the Nazis. They thought it sucked.
    We also ascribe a Bronze Age Alter Ego to Ryan Daly aka Count Drunkula, who left us a 5 star iTunes review. Thanks, Ryan. You rock!

Flames of the Faltine! I love Dr Strange!

I love Doctor Strange. He’s my favorite character.
Anybody know the full list of the Octessence from Doctor Strange comics? Please let me know!
I’ve been trying to find a good Doctor Strange podcast for ages and I just encountered this podcast. Hope it is worth a try because I enjoyed the Doctor Strange film and have been trying to find out more about the character from the beginning of the comics before Doctor Strange 2.

BY THE HOARY HOSTS OF HOGGOTH, THIS IS GREAT!!!

Wanting a new podcast to listen to on my way to work, and being of a certain age, I was surprised to find a Dr. Strange icon in my search for a Marvel podcast. Curious, I clicked on it and went Into The Weird!

Back in the day, I never delved deep into the Bronze Age Marvel genre books, prefering Spider-man and the Fantastic Four. As close as I typically got to the horror comics was Black Talon turning Wonder Man into a “zuvembie” (thanks Comics Code) in Avengers #152. However, one of the first comics I ever had was a Man-Thing (#20) where demons impersonated The Thing, Spider-man, Daredevil, Shang-chi and other cast members. I remember the art being different and actually scary. The other monster characters would pop up in Two-In-One or Marvel Team-Up (what Ghost Rider did to the Trapster in MTU scarred me ), so I was aware of them. Occasionally I would have a friend who had the odd issue of Werewolf By Night or Tomb of Dracula, and the Monster Of Frankenstein book and record set was everywhere it seemed. So I was aware of them.

Why do I tell you all of this?

Because, even with my peripheral knowledge of the Marvel horror titles, after I started Episode 13: Mamuwalde’s Got Nothin’ On Me, I was hooked. It was a side of the Marvel Bronze Age with which I was completely unfamiliar. The casual conversational style of Herman and Billy reminded me of the discussions I used to have with friends about the comics of our youth. The Mighty Marvel Missteps and Bronze Age Brilliance segments were a blast - both done with a love for the source material. These guys kept my attention through the entire over two hour podcast. The biggest compliment I can give is that they made me want to go track down these issues and read them.

I can guarantee that I will be digging through their back issues and savoring every one!

First iTunes Review Ever!

I was looking for a Dr. Strange podcast and came across this weird result. At first, I wasn't sure about the hosts discussing characters other than Strange, but their enthusiasm has quickly won me over. The format and length is just perfect and the Shop Talk gives me ideas to do more online and LCS shopping. The only downside? It only comes out every 2 weeks. I wish I could listen every day!

This is a great podcast and I look forward to each weird and wonderful episode.

Thanks,

Chase Grafton
