    Dragons & Jive Episode 5: A Whole Lotta Lady

    It's another Patron-sponsored BONUS endeavor from Into The Weird, featuring Shang-Chi, Luke Cage, and everyone's favorite living weapon, Danny Rand! This time around we cover Master Of Kung Fu #20, Luke Cage: Hero For Hire #5, and Marvel Premiere #19. Floating casinos, immortal Samurais, well-endowed lady mobsters, and death cults fill up the majority of our time on this episode, but there's also the first appearance of Colleen Wing. It's Bronze Age Marvel at its best. You dare not miss it!

    House of Licensed Ideas Episode 4: Galadorian Nipples

    House of Licensed Ideas Episode 4: Galadorian Nipples

    Welcome to episode 4 of Into The Weird's House of Licensed Ideas, yet another bonus episode courtesy of our magnanimous patrons on Patreon. Billy and Herm are back with some decidedly strange discussions surrounding ROM #4, where we meet the new Firefall, Godzilla: King of the Monsters #4, where the Big G and Batragon go at it while Dr. Demonicus cheers from the sidelines, and finally Micronauts #4, where we encounter Lady Slug, Prof. Prometheus, and H.E.L.L. All that, and the hosts lament the lack of Galadorian nipples. There's just no pleasing some folks.

    Dragons & Jive Episode 4: A Whiff of Mimosa

    Hey there, Weirdos! Welcome to Episode 4 of INTO THE WEIRD's Dragons & Jive. Since this is a bonus episode that aired in 2021 for our Patrons, be prepared for some dated references to Marvel's Shang-Chi: Legend of the Ten Rings film. After Herman's much-maligned hot take and 'get off my lawn' style rant, it's off to the races with Master of Kung-Fu #18 (1974), Luke Cage, Hero for Hire #4 (1972), and Iron Fist in Marvel Premiere #18 (1974). Drugs, Opera Ghosts, and horrific amputations are all rolled up into a big ball of crazy-twine not even the Cheshire Cat could untangle. Enjoy!

    Greetings, weirdos! Into The Weird returns with another Sword and Sorcery offering courtesy of our barbaric Patrons featuring Conan The Barbarian #4 (1970) and Kull The Conqueror #4 (1972).

By The Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth!

If you dig bronze age Marvel comics a bit on the weird side such as Man Thing, Morbius the Living Vampire, Dracula and of course Dr.Strange, you will love this show. Herman and Billy have created a wonderfully produced podcast that caters to those of us that love the madness and magnificence of the bronze age Marvel books. You can tell that their love of this subject is genuine and they take their time to review and critique each book they discuss. I personally look forward to The Recommendations of Ragaddor and Shop Talk every month. Oh yes, Dormammu shows up in selected episodes too...have a listen and keep it WEIRD.

Then look no further than Into the Weird, a fantastic podcast that uses the tales of Marvel’s Dr. Strange from this era as a springboard into an in depth conversation of the iconic writing and art that made these comics so memorable! If you are a comics fan, don’t miss this one!

I finally caught up to present episodes after listening from the beginning. It’s really cool to get to know and see the hosts develop their chemistry together. Great listen for great content.
