    Into The Weird CROSSOVER Special - Acts of Vengeance!

    Into The Weird CROSSOVER Special - Acts of Vengeance!

    Welcome to our very first Weird CROSSOVER Special, where Billy and Herm dissect Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #11-13 (1989-90) as a part of the Merry Marvel MARCHing Society Podcast Crossover.


    Listen along with us and bear witness to some bizarre battles between Stephen Strange and foes with delusions of grandeur (Hobgoblin), foes with a serious case of Basorexia (Enchantress), and misogynist kidnappers (Arkon the Not-So-Magnificent). Thrill at the return of the beauteous Clea, and cringe at Stephen's appearance on a talk show. All this and much more are included in this bonus special. You dare not miss it!

The more you listen

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.

5 Star Bronze Age Goodness!

Herman & Billy D cover some all-time Bronze Age classics! Amazing coverage of some fantastic Marvel goodies. The subject matter may be weird, but the coverage is outstanding! 5 stars of pure audio ecstasy!

Bronze is the Best and so is this podcast

Stumbled across it by listening to the TreasuryCast and have been listening to all the back episodes.

I produce TERRIFICON in Connecticut and populate my guest list every year with the Bronze Age great creators and love hearing you discuss your love for it. From Morbius to Moon Knight, Man Wolf to Man Thing these are the books of my childhood! I’ve had Starlin, Roy, Englehart, Gulacy, McGregor and more at my shows and it’s fantastic to revisit their tales in this podcast.

Keep up the great work and listen to my show with artist Jerry Ordway on Terrificon presents the Power Cosmic podcast.
