 Nova in the 90's | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:16:39

Nova Vol 2 #2 (1994) At this point, its quite possible that Fabian Nicieza has written every comic that we’ve done on this show. I mean, have we gone insane with New Warriors-related books? Let’s be honest, they are not that good. Bunch of boring young heroes doing boring young hero stuff like playing video games and pretending to be Batman. Anyway, Nova takes on the villainess Tailhook who might be his girlfriend and might be out there killing scumbags with a barbed whip. That doesn’t stop him from eating the largest order of curly fries the 616 has every seen.  Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 Supergirl & Animal Man | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:40:33

Adventure Comics #420 (1972) Its a mish-mash of stories this week with Supergirl taking the helm. First up, she ends up on a planet of, like, four dudes. There are these three evil scientists bros who keep trying to kill this puke-colored Adonis guy who gets all inappropriate with Supergirl. Everyone dies, Supergirl does nothing and leaves. Then we FINALLY work in an Animal Man story where Buddy confronts bank robbers. Turns out in early Animal Man, Buddy had to be pretty much right next to the animal in order to get its powers. Even though there are birds and worms everywhere, Buddy can’t seem to do squat and has to fight around the docks where the zoo animals arrive. Lastly, we have two more stories. One is about a bunch of space golems protecting treasure by turning everyone into stone. The other is about Superman when he got turned into a dragon. Supergirl arrives, does nothing and leaves.

 Dr. Doom & Alpha Flight | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:53:37

Alpha Flight #91 (1990) We’re back to Alpha Flight because we love it. Well, Shawn loves it. Jen’s not that impressed. In this issue, Dr. Doom sets a literal “thirst trap” as he tries to convince Canada to give him fresh water for his parched Latverians. Turns out though, the deal is some sort of gimmick to piss off Symkaria and Silver Sable’s king father. Alpha Flight ends up having to perform security detail for Doom this whole time but not before they cripple a bunch of dock workers trying to collect OT in Newfoundland. Its SAVAGE AF! (that Savage Alpha Flight, led by Randy Savage dressed as Vindicator…..dig it!) Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 J'onn J'onzz & Friends | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:59:45

Justice League Task Force #0 (1994) We are caught between Easter and Wrestlemania as we head back to the 90s and the one of the #0 issues that surfaced due to DC’s Zero Hour event. In this one, a new Justice League Task Force is formed with the lead character being Martian Manhunter’s arm hair. To that point, I think Jason Mantzoukas could make a great J’onn J’onzz based on hirsuteness alone. We also discuss old MTV dating shows that Triumph could appear on if his HVAC career doesn’t take off. Also, Gypsy and the Ray continue to be useless while Despero sits there and reads self-help books. Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 Drax & Thanos | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:17:42

Iron Man #55 (1973) We take on an actual CLASSIC comic with significant events and debuts that still manages to be stupid with IRON MAN from 1973. Thanos is here for the first time as is Drax and Starfox and all the other cosmic goobers you’ve grown to love. Still though, its a ridiculous book as Tony gets a wicked migraine and gets beat up in his office by two Monchhichis on steroids. He ends up hung over at Thanos’s place in the American Southwest where Bobby Flay’s making egg rolls while Drax is all tied up trying to figure out why his eyebrows are growing into his eyeballs like some horrific Martin Scorsese mutation. We also take a moment to pay tribute to the mighty Meltdown Comics here in LA, shutting its doors after twenty-plus years of cultural awesomeness. Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 Mad Hatter in Detective Comics | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:05:13

Detective Comics #573 (1987) The Mad Hatter returns in this issue of DETECTIVE COMICS as he gets released from prison and immediately makes a hat out of a newspaper. Batman’s response is to run for city councilman with no political affiliation which goes as about as well as you’d expect. Mad Hatter shows up to throw a few razor fedoras while Jason Todd eats chocolate cake in front of Bruce Wayne’s gargantuan portrait of his dead parents. All of these are true; its up to you to decide the order. There will be a quiz after the show. Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 Annex: Crucible of Power | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:17:32

Annex: Crucible of Power #1 (1994) Annex is one of those Marvel characters that was introduced via poly-bagged card in the 1993 Annuals. He basically can use his suit of armor to think up guns and weapons and stuff as well as a new leg for himself (because his civilian identity is missing one). If he was smart, he’d think up a better color than 90’s fuchsia to make up his outfit. Also, he's the only superhero named after a word that I learned in 5th grade social studies. In this mini-series, Annex fights a pre-vegan Moby while Spider-Man cleans up his collateral damage. Annex's also got this deceivingly bloodthirsty scientist friend who kills some thugs with an electric doorway.  Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 Crisis on Infinity Inc | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:14:59

Infinity Inc #22 (1986) This week, we are in the midst of CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS in this issue of INFINITY INC which sees the Infinity-eers transported to the Monitor’s ship for the most awkward company picnic ever. Silver Scarab and Fury are farting around asking everyone “are you my mother” while Skyman sarges on Wonder Girl only to go down in flames. At least Plastic Man and Elongated Man seem to have a good time. We also got this weird time-displacement subplot where lady Doctor Midnight and Hourman XVII (in only his second lamest costume) fight off dinosaurs and Civil War re-enacters on South Carolina.

 Justice: Four Balance | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:28:56

Justice: Four Balance #1 (1994) Something’s off because we are back in New Warriors land with this Justice/Marvel Boy/Vance Astro mini-series that reads like a formulaic episode of LAW & ORDER: SVU. Its basically “let’s cram everything about Vance’s life into four issues” as he uses his psychic Green Lantern powers to shakedown the Dickensian street urchins known as the Yancy Street Gang. Ben Grimm also shows up wearing his Persuader mask that no one remembers. Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 L.E.G.I.O.N. | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:09:12

L.E.G.I.O.N. ’93 #61 (1993) We have no idea what L.E.G.I.O.N. stands for (Licensed Extra-Governmental Interstellar Operatives Network - I looked it up) but it certainly doesn’t spell a cohesive comic that we would continue to read.  Well, let’s walk that back a bit. There are some good gags and Lobo is only in it for a few panels and is used quite well. But essentially, this is a stop-gap issue where L.E.G.I.O.N. throws a party on a planet inhabited by blue war bunnies and it ends up all going sideways because space aliens. There’s also this hipster Leatherface dude that serves as muscle for a chunky guy dressed in an ill-fitting bellboy costume who would most certainly be played by comedian Eddie Pepitone in the DCEU version of this comic. Not sure if its enough for us to buy in. Maybe if Eddie played his character from the excellent YouTube comedy strip PUDDIN, there might be a sale. Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 Chuck Norris - Karate Kommandos | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:21:11

Chuck Norris - Karate Kommandos #1 (1987) This week, we take on our first-ever Star Comics book, which was a 1980s Marvel Comics line for folks that felt Power Pack was too intense. The Chuck Norris slant here is based off of his toy line and cartoon and not the scene in MISSING IN ACTION 2 where a captor hangs Chuck upside-down and puts a bag with a rat in it over his head but Chuck Norris ends up killing the rat with his mouth. The story goes off the rails pretty much almost immediately and never recovers. By the end, its basically RED DAWN for kids. Starring Chuck Norris. Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 Night Thrasher | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:27:09

Night Thrasher #3 (1993) Well, we’re back in boring New Warriors land but you know, we don’t hate this. I mean, its not good but its not offensive.  Night Thrasher gets into it with a kimono-wearing Wendigo gangster hybrid while Silhouette goes through a number of hairstyles from page to page like she’s Wonder Man or something. We also take the whole Night Thrasher origin for a walk because its basically a convoluted Batman origin that involves forced marriages and Vietnamese sorcerers.

 Aquaman in Adventure Comics | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:55:49

Adventure Comics #452 (1977) Guys, we had NO idea that this just happened to be “that one Aquaman story” when picked up this issue of ADVENTURE COMICS. Ah, god. This one doesn’t end on a fun note. Regardless, we find some joy here like the improbable laminating machine used to hand out Aqualad headshots as well as Black Manta’s plans for a Peter Benchley library.

 Marvel's WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:03:52

Quasar #17 (1990) In this issue of Shawn’s favorite comic, QUASAR, some random-ass Elder of the Universe decides the time is right to have a bunch of super-powered speedsters race to the Moon, thus exposing the sad roster of Marvel speedsters. I mean, once you get past Quicksilver, the quality drops off dramatically. This is also the issue of QUASAR where its revealed that omnipotent space broccoli Eon is WEEKEND AT BERNIE’ing Quasar's dad. Also, Quasar bro Makkari (of the Eternals) dresses like Ace Ventura and for some reason, we ponder using a Ouija board to contact comic scribe Mark Grunewald (RIP) Please rate, review, subscribe and tell a friend!

 Lois Lane Marries Satan | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:31:30

Superman’s Girlfriend, Lois Lane #103 (1970) In this fascinating issue of SUPERMAN’S GIRLFRIEND, LOIS LANE, Lois marries Satan. Well, it’s not quite Satan but Satan-ish. Ok, its not Marvel’s Satannish BUT it is an alien posing as an Indian version of Sigfried & Roy who gets hot for Lois from deep space and decides to hypnotize tigers in hopes that she’s dumb enough to cover the story and show up so he can woo her. Turns out she is. Then, later in the book, Lois runs afoul of some evil wigs that make the wearer go FINAL DESTINATION on themselves. Supergirl has to save her ass because some cranky actor decided to set up some crooked real-life Patreons and didn’t like Lois being all inquisitive and stuff.
