    A Review of DC's New52 A Decade Later

    A Review of DC's New52 A Decade Later

    Welcome to another episode of King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun, KSCGSF for short, I'm your host Kyle Benning. A decade ago, DC Rebooted their Universe (kinda) with the New 52. Now 10 years later, I sit down & reflect on where I was as a comic reader and in life personally back in 2011, and go over what titles I was reading, and what I thought about the New 52 launch then and now.

    WAR IS HELL (Classic) #3 Squish-Squash & the Comic Book Crew (2016)

    WAR IS HELL (Classic) #3 Squish-Squash & the Comic Book Crew (2016)

    Back in 2016 I started a short-lived podcast on my original King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun Podcast feed, titled WAR IS HELL, a podcast devoted to the War Comic Stories published by DC Comics.
    In the third WAR IS HELL episode I examined the second installment of Sam Glanzman's fantastic U.S.S. Stevens feature that ran through the Joe Kubert Presents anthology comic series, titled "Squish-Squash & the Comic Book Crew". 
    This episode was originally released on June 28th 2016. I recently uncovered the original recordings on a computer scrub, and now am releasing them (untouched) onto the new KSCGSF feed.
    Thank you to all of our brave service members, past and present, who have protected our freedom. All gave some, some gave all.

    WAR IS HELL (Classic) #2 Tank for Beach Green (2016)

    Back in 2016 I started a short-lived podcast on my original King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun Podcast feed, titled WAR IS HELL, a podcast devoted to the War Comic Stories published by DC Comics.
    The second WAR IS HELL episode was released on June 14th, 2016, which was also Flag Day, the anniversary of when the US Flag was adopted in 1777 and also the anniversary of the US Army, which was formed on this day in 1775. To celebrate Flag Day and further look at the fantastic sampling of DC's War comics offering, I examined "Tank For Beach Green" by Bob Haney and Joe Kubert, which was originally published in 1956's Our Fighting Forces #12.
     
    I recently uncovered the original recordings on a computer scrub, and now am releasing them (untouched) onto the new KSCGSF feed.

    WAR IS HELL (Classic) #1 Glanzman's USS Steven's (2016)

    Back in 2016 I started a short-lived podcast on my original King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun Podcast feed, titled WAR IS HELL, a podcast devoted to the War Comic Stories published by DC Comics.

    This first episode was released on June 6th, 2016, the 72nd Anniversary of D-Day and the Allied Invasion of Nazi-controlled French Normandy. To kick off the podcast and note that historic day,  I dove into the first installment of Sam Glanzman's "U.S.S Stevens" feature from the Joe Kubert Presents Anthology title.
     
    I recently uncovered the original recordings on a computer scrub, and now am releasing them (untouched) onto the new KSCGSF feed. As always, you can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes under the KSCGSF podcast feed.

    Retro Review: Bring on the Bad Guys Marvel/Fireside Books 1976

    Welcome to another Retro Reviews episode of King-Size Comics, Giant-Size Fun, KSCGSF for short! 
    Just what are these "Retro Review" podcast episodes? Lazy Podcasting at it's finest! Kyle takes a Retro Review from 2011-2014 that he wrote for his comic shop and/or The Outhousers website from 2011-2014, and looks at the run and the review itself with 2021 Hindsight. This time out, I take a look at Bring on the Bad Guys, a special collection of the origin stories of some of Marvel's most heinous silver age villains, put out by Fireside Books in 1976.
