Magazines and Monsters episode 26, My Greatest Adventure 80, 1963
Hey everybody, I'm back with another episode of the show! This one was an absolute blast, as I finally got to podcast with a great guy, Paul Hix, from the Waiting for Doom podcast! He agreed to come on the show and talk about the first comic book appearance of the Doom Patrol with me! He also talks about the many other comic book iterations, as well as the tv show (I'm a complete newbie to the Doom Patrol). We talk about some of the "similarities" between this team/book and a couple of others well.
As usual, you can contact the show with any feedback at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or to the FB page. I'm on Twitter @Billyd_licious and Paul is @Reading_Hix (plus he has accounts for Waiting for Doom @WFDPod and DCOCD @DCOCDcast).

Magazines and Monsters episode 25, Silver Bullet (1985)
Hey everybody, I'm back and it's time for another film discussion! In this episode, I'l be joined by two of my favorite people, Herman Louw (Longbox of Darkness, Into the Weird) and Ryan Daly (Fire and Water Podcast Network)! The three of us like this movie quite a bit (although we are honest about its shortcomings during the discussion), and we couldn't wait to sit down in front of the mics and wax rhapsodic about it. (quick note- we referenced Midnight Mass from Netflix a few times, as Herm, Ryan, and Angela talked about it recently, click here to listen in!). We go through the cast and then jump in the deep end of the film, and follow it up with some discussion about the Stephen King novelette as well.
As usual, you can contact the show by email at MagazinesandMonsters@gmail.com or on the FB page. Ryan is on Twitter @RyanDaly01 and Herm is @darklongbox (I'm @Billyd_licious). Definitely check out Ryan on the Fire and Water Network, as he has a great backlog of shows dating back to 2016, and currently hosts Cheerscast and makes appearances on other shows as well. Herm is the cohost of Into the Weird, A World on Fire; an All-Star Squadron Podcast, Star Rocket Radio, and of course his own show The Longbox of Darkness. Thanks for listening and supporting the show!
*NOTE- there are some slight spoilers for Midnight Mass (Netflix) in this conversation, so if you haven't watched that yet but plan to, skip over that bit of the show (at the 1:50:12 mark, for about 30 seconds).
Magazines and Monsters episode 24, Action Comics 345, 1966!
Hey everybody, I'm back with another show! This time around my good buddy Chris Sheehan (@Acecomics) is joining me to talk about this crazy DC Silver Age comic about Superman! The insanity of the story is a lot of fun, and Chris and I have a blast talking about it, plus a wild back up story featuring Supergirl, too!
As usual, you can contact the show via email at MagazinesandMonsters@gmail.com or on the FB page or by reaching out to me on Twitter @Billyd_licious (main account). Chris is on Twitter @Acecomics and definitely check out his blog, Chris is on Infinite Earths, and the main feed for his podcasting is the Cosmic Treadmill. You can also find him on Patreon as well!
Magazines and Monsters Episode 23, House of Wax (1953)
Hey everybody, here is the final Halloween episode for this year. I saved my favorite Vincent Price film, and my favorite guest for the finale. I hope you enjoy hearing myself and Herm talk about this film, as it's near and dear to my heart since my youth. Vincent Price is nothing short of amazing in this film (as he is in just about every film), so sit back and relax, as we gush over this one!
As usual, you can leave any feedback for the show via email at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or to me on Twitter @Billyd_licious or on the FB page Magazines and Monsters. You can find Herm on Twitter @Darklongbox and his podcast by clicking here!
Love This Show
Nice variety of high-quality episodes about great comic book stories.
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.
