    Magazines and Monsters Episode 50, Flash 123, 1961 "The Flash of Two Worlds" with Javon Stokes!

    Magazines and Monsters Episode 50, Flash 123, 1961 "The Flash of Two Worlds" with Javon Stokes!

    Welcome to a very special episode of the show! As you know, typically I cover a lot of crazy comics, and most wouldn't be considered groundbreaking by most. I decided to not just cover a seminal comic book, and break away from the more bizarre side of the medium, but I also brought a guest on that loves and creates his own comics! Please welcome my friend Javon Stokes to the show! Javon is a creator and podcaster that is one of the hardest working people I know in the industry, and I couldn't wait to talk to him about this great DC Silver Age story, The Flash of Two Worlds! Gardner Fox, Carmine Infantino, and Joe Giella do a fantastic job with this story, and it opened up a whole new world for the rest of the DC universe. 
    As usual, you can send any feedback to the show through email at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or to the FB page or to me on Twitter @Billyd_licious. You can find Javon on FB (Visually Stoked Media), on Twitter @jstokesstudios or on his website Visuallystoked.com (definitely give his work a look, as it's something he's very passionate about, and he loves the comic book medium)! Thanks for listening!

    It's time for another entry into the zany! Join me and my returning guest, Evan Bevins, as we tackle this crazy story! What happens when Bat-girl and Wonder Woman fall head over heels for the Dark Knight? The answer lies with Copperhead! Or maybe Commissioner Gordon? Or maybe Bob Haney! Listen in to find some answers. Or maybe none.

Love it!

A great show that I’ve been really enjoying. I particularly love the horror focused stuff, although the other comic episodes are really entertaining as well. Looking forward to more episodes.
