366: The Meaning of Christmas is Organs

Shocking news, everyone: it’s DECEMBER! But at least we’ve got some holiday specials to enjoy – starting with the Guardians of the Galaxy one that came out recently! Let’s watch that and talk about it, huh?

But that may not be enough holiday spirit for us, so let’s also pitch some special presentations of our own! Imagine, if you will: Nathan Fillion finally joins the MCU in an ULTRA cheery story straight out of the 1991 Marvel Holiday Special! Werewolf By Night and Man-Thing fend off burglars in a monster-ized “Home Alone” style adventure! A holiday card from The Thing kicks off a bizarre claymation-animated odyssey straight outta Marvel Two-In-One! Miserly Bruce Wayne is plagued by ghost Robins in a Wayne Manor Christmas Carol! Are you ready for… the Twelve Nights of What If…? And there are plenty more under the podcast tree!

359: Ted Talk

Man-Thing! Man-Thing! Man-Thing! Say it THREE times into a mirror…. and you’ll be asked to leave that public washroom. Trust us.

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!?!?

262: Draclactus OR GaDractus OR Galacula

Boo! Boooooooooo! Boooooo!

This week, we’re talking about monsters, and how they seem to end up in mainstream superhero books pretty dang often. Werewolf By Night, Cap Wolf, that time The Living Mummy was part of a super hero team…there’s a precedent!

But first, we cover the return of Jared Leto’s Joker, Spider-Man 3 rumours, and more in the News, and we try to debate who’s better, Dracula or Dracula, in the Warmup!

(Boo!)
