It’s time once again for the POWER! The power of Power Records, of course! They were comics that came with a record of a performance of the same comic, and they sure were something. This time we’re listening and riffing along to 1975’s “Alien Creatures” starring Superman! Jimmy Olsen hot-boxes with Dr. Tripper in the observatory, Clark Kent whizzes out the window, Lois Lane JUST DOESN’T GET IT, and the people of Metropolis nearly catch the silver bullet (and it’s even worse than Coors Light!).
But alas, Power Records are a finite resource. Eventually we will run out, and we can only imagine what other ridiculous comics could be cheaply and cornily recorded then pressed onto a 45. So let’s do that, meaning make up the Power Records that could have been — and could yet be! Along the way we might just stumble upon a future Juno Award-winning new Zero Issues project that’ll really put Calgary on the map (and definitely get us interviewed by George Stroumboulopoulos). And while we’re at it, somebody get Jon Bernthal and the cast of Riverdale to make an audio drama of “Archie Meets the Punisher”! All this, and Mr. T and the T-Force? Hey, why not.
