And welcome back my regular cohost for these books, Jeremiah Jones-Goldstein! We get talking about this awesome book, and don't look back, but you can't give enough love for this spectacular Neal Adams cover! Inside there are six stories to bite into, plus multiple one-pagers by Sergio Aragonés! Plus, a one page prose piece by Len Wein! Oh, and did I mention two of the stories are by Jack Kirby?!?! Get ready for this giant sized comic!

    Magazines and Monsters Episode 49, Blacula 1972, Scream Blacula Scream !973, with Mark Radulich!

    Hey everybody, welcome to another episode of the show! This time around, I've lured Mark Radulich into my spooky mansion, and he and I are talking about one of my all time favorite movies (and my favorite Blaxploitaion film), Blacula! This film hit at the perfect time, as moviegoers were itching for something outrageous, and boy do they get it with this one! Mark and I then talk briefly about the sequel, but to be honest, we're not huge fans. Don't let that discourage you, though, because we have a great time with this conversation!

    Hey everybody, I'm back with another great guest and another comic book conversation! I've brought back my good pal Luke Jaconetti, from the Earth Destruction Directive podcast, as he's a huge Iron Man fan! We gush over this crazy comic, as it has a fantastic creative team, and a plot for the ages! For 1976, this comic really pushed some boundaries, and Luke and I had a blast talking about it.

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.
