371: That’s Bad Glue

POWER RECORDS COMING THROUGH!!!!

Oh yea. It’s power records time. The 45’s from the 70’s that, oh so weirdly, dramatize comics. In this case Captain America 168 ‘And a Phoenix Shall Arise!!’. It’s a bizarre one… and slightly awkward in parts. Falcon with no wings. Cap a little down on himself and stuck in glue. Hot glue. Hot nazi glue. There’s a mystery unfolding, won’t you join us as we laugh it up?!

362: Cyclops in Blues Traveler

Oh boy! Lots going on this week! Here’s the briefo rundowno!
For a warm up we’re invested in bringing you the very vest… er …. best… or worst, rather, in comic costume redesigns. From Nova to Miles Morales, to the Thing, and Gambit. And Cyclops with a harmonica vest? Oh…. we go a little vest heavy. You’ve been warned.
For the main topic we each to a pitch: If Marvel were to restart today, what 5 titles would you begin with and what creative team?
We nerd out a little.
And of course the news! Between James Gunn becoming the DC Monitor, hints of Spielberg talking about a comic movie, Sandman, Agatha casting and a Wonder Man series AND casting and…. oh god…. even more.
It would be a traVESTy if you missed this.
I’m sorry.
I’ll stop.

With Werewolf by Night appearing on Disney+ comes the MONSTERS!! And with the monsters….TED!! aka Man-Thing! In the warm up we discuss Werewolf by Night (spoilers, yo) and all the scary coolness it has to offer, including someone’s favourite…. MAN-THING!  THEN….. for our main topic…. MAN-THING! We take a listen to Power Records’ 1974 release of The Man-Thing:Night of the Laughing Dead….. and get ready for a ride. This one is DARK. Far darker than you’d expect (warning-there is depiction & talk of suicide). Clowns. Carnivals. Hippie kids. Seedy motels. And of course MAN-THING. There. We’ve said Man-Thing 8 times in the blurb. Well…. nine Man-Things now. Doh! TEN!!! Ok. Just click ‘n listen why dontcha!?!?
