    The Savage Dragon [vol 1] #2 (1992)




    Carrying on with the saga of The Savage Dragon, we pick up the Dragon in the Chicago sewers looking for an obese spider man (as opposed to Spider-Man or Spider-Ham). Dragon’s been running ragged fighting crime and almost gets some companionship from his Daisy Dukes wearing neighbor gal. Unfortunately, Hellrazor and his cronies have taken over the mall, sat on ALL the chairs in the Brookstone and finished off the entirety of the bourbon chicken in the food court, leaving the Windy City paralyzed with fear. But as we’ve seen, Savage Dragon goes hard….but does he go TOO HARD?!?




    Also, we have an extended discussion about WrestleMania XL this past weekend. Jump ahead to 00:14:09 for the comic book talk

    The Savage Dragon [vol 1] #1 (1992)




    We don’t get around to messing with too many Image Comics but Savage Dragon is a great place to start. Outlandish in story and execution, the mighty Erik Larsen gives us a lot to talk about. For example, why does Savage Dragon have so much body hair despite being a reptilian? Is he of Mediterranean descent? Will the hair removal product Nair do the trick? Regardless, this series is wild, filled with chrome skeletons, hilariously timed explosion deaths and one of the most inefficient costume designs of all time.

    Spider-Man & Tigra Ruin an Italian Bistro

    Spider-Man & Tigra Ruin an Italian Bistro

    Marvel Team-Up #125 (1982)




    Spider-Man, ever the enterprising fellow, nabs a print endorsement deal for a fast food joint only for Tigra to show up and score the gig with her Charo impression (cuchi cuchi). Tigra then has a date with a beat cop that gets interrupted by Zabo the Diaper Bodyguard. Spider-Man tries to help and makes things worse.




    Additionally, we are bestowed a Doctor Strange / Scarlet Witch back-up that sees a confused monster summoned on the set of that fake movie in PET CEMETARY 2 where Eddie Furlong’s mother get electrocuted to death.

    Marvel Team-Up #126 (1983)




    We wrap our run on Marvel Team-Up with a deliberately lazy issue featuring a random back-up story with Luke Cage and Hellstorm and a Spider-Man comic strip reprint featuring the Hulk




    In the first story, Luke and Damian find a dead body and follow the brimstone trail to a demon worshipping party for Satannish aka Kirkland Signature Satan. Action ensues as Luke throws a couch and Hellstorm sets his trident to “ash.”




    Later, Hulk loses his marbles in NYC and awesomely demolishes a police cruiser with a lamppost. Spider-Man gives Hulk $5.00 USD to start a new life so Hulk heads to Chicago and pays it forward by slapping around some buff crooks.

    Spider-Man & Beast vs. Hillbillies & Romans

    Marvel Team-Up #124 (1982)




    It’s a brand-new run of books as we jump into some Marvel Team-Up. This week, Spider-Man links up with our friend Beast to fight off the vengeance-seeking Professor Power. The good professor here is mad that another professor (Professor X) did a botch job on his catatonic son’s mind so now he wants to take it out on everything X-Men adjacent. All this plus Hank McCoy’s intolerant mother, Romans versus hillbillies and a special cameo from Adrienne Barbeau!

    Red Tornado's Sad NYC Adventure

    Justice League of America #175 (1980)




    Join Shawn and Jen as we follow up on last week’s JLA book with a pointless tale about everyone’s favorite super-powered Eeyore, Red Tornado! You see, Reddy got sad over something again and impulsively quit the League to resume his normal life as a Yul Brenner lookalike in NYC. He assembles an instant family in the span of 20 minutes and goes to a Halloween parade in February where he is attacked by Doctor Destiny and his “bad dream machine” that only makes you see giant bugs. We also question the potentially lewd placement of Justice League cameras throughout NYC. Naturally, we blame Clark.

The Most Fun Allowed By Law

Jen and Shawn constantly bring the funny as they examine not-very-good comics from all
eras. If you like your comics fun, this is the podcast for you.

Hi there

Another home run of a fun filled show.

Tremayne10 ,

and I thought I knew alot about comics

Shawn and Jen cover everything from the garden-variety Marvel and DC heroes to the lesser knowns and oddball comics. I learned more about some of my favorites and even went out searching for stuff I've never even heard of until I heard it here on WCE. Required listening for anyone who considers themself a real comic book head.
