321: Dracula vs. the Christmas Vampire Goat

It’s that wonderful holiday season once again! And once again… it’s kind of a weird one. So let’s get weird! Listen and read along with us as we react to another ’70s Power Records performance, this time of Tomb of Dracula #19 by Marvel Wolfman & Gene Colan! Dracula and Rachel van Helsing are trapped on the Transylvanian Alps in the middle of a snowstorm! Um, on the way to a Christmas party! Sure, let’s go with that. Will they manage to escape the treacherous mountain and/or kill each other? The only things standing in their way: wooden bullets, a helicopter crash, regular bullets, and Dracula’s greatest enemy… A GOAT!

Sync up the following video with the 3:29 mark of the podcast for the full effect! Or if you’ve got a copy of the comic in your back-issue bins, unseal that bad boy and read along!

It’s that time o’ the season and the boys love to make up their own comic stories…. so …. it’s time for Christmas Comics Pitch! Each of them come up with their own weird and wonderful comic book for the season. From a certain notorious X-Family holiday get together, to a decidedly mutated version of a Christmas classic, to a monstrous adventure for a certain jolly guy and his reindeer, we have your holiday comic fix here. All that and a quiz on a comics legend, and a delightful mishmosh of newsy news! Join us. We’ll bring the nog.

318: At the Speed of Snowplow!

Winter in comic books is kinda… weird, right? Like it rarely happens, and when it does it always seems to be over after a single issue or story-arc. And as semi-northern Canadians, we have a podcast episode to pick with that! But as semi-northern Canadians, we also appreciate it whenever it happens! So join us on a wintery journey through the snow-filled superhero comics that stuck with us (we’ve got TMNT *and* X-Men!), the inadequacies of superhero costumes in winter (tell us, HOW do Spider-Man’s lenses not constantly fog up when he’s wearing a mask?), and we pitch some new comic story ideas to make up for an otherwise lack of winter realism. Plus: Hulk in a snowsuit!! That sounds brrrrr– uh, great!

But… what’s this!? We give wintertime “normal jobs” to three random comic characters: Moon Knight vs. Hockey Parents! Quicksilver turns into a tow truck… Turbo Teen style, even! Fantomah helps (and causes) icy car accidents! And we talk about all the wildest news, from an abruptly-cancelled Luke Cage miniseries, a new comic about Starship Hulk, and Saga’s live-action debut!

But first! We’ve got more “news” about the Ayer Cut, as well as the Diamond Distribution Hack and a new comic-based cartoon that just came out! Plus, we’re covering all of the Disney+ Day Marvel stuff in the Warmup!

Happy Holidays fellow Comic geeks! We have a treat for you today on xmas day…… a Wonder Woman Christmas story from a 1977 vinyl…. and we talk over the whole thing! Sounds great doesn’t it?
