Justice’s First Dawn 45: Justice League of America 28

September 11, 2017

Defenders of the Faith, I have returned!  Through many real-life explanations I've provided in the episode, I've emerged for another solid month of podcasting.  And how do I mark my return?  ... By having that schmuck Headmaster Mind return to menace the JLA with his School of Criminology students, the Tattooed Man, the Top, and Matter Master, in Justice League of America 28.  The JLA protests the United Nations!  Stupid power-sapping batteries cause our heroes' powers to go haywire!  I even manage to note a DISTINCT absence of involvement by Snapper Carr in the issue!  All this, plus your feedback!  So, please make a brother feel welcome back on the scene once again, by leaving me some feedback via email at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com or leaving me a comment on the podcast page, classicjla.podbean.com.  Thanks for your time and patience!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 69

July 25, 2017

Green Arrow: potential murderer?  Wonder Woman: quitting the Justice League of America, and wearing a VASTLY revealing dress?  "Cabezo Maestro": the potentially worst villain the JLA has encountered?  All this, and more, await you for coverage in JLA 69, "A Matter of Menace"!  Plus your feedback, and my long and rambling thoughts on the recently released SDCC trailer for "Justice League"!  So master your head, and by all means feel free to leave me some feedback at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com, or you can leave a comment on the episode posting!  Thanks as always!


Justice’s First Dawn 43: Justice League of America 33

July 18, 2017

Thank goodness Despero, and even the Lord of Time, get shoutouts due to editor's notes!  Otherwise, aside from alien transformed Justice League members, and a gigantic glob of slime called the Endless One, JLA 33 would have as much hearty flavor as a church wafer!  But you do get comments about weird costume color changes, see Batman potentially be killed... or at least suffer an injury that would gravely disappoint Talia, and you have a guest appearance by a letter writer that MIGHT be a prominant comic industry figure!  All this, plus a potential future plan for the show, and your feedback/social media activities!  And should you wish to not fall victim to Alien-Ation, then please leave some feedback towards justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com, or leave a comment on the podcast post!  As always, many thanks!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 70

July 10, 2017

Denny O'Neil and Dick Dillin show up for another episode of JFD, and they're bringing Jack Ryder, AKA The Creeper, with them for my coverage of JLA 70, "Versus the Creeper"!  ... Only that title proves to be a tiny bit of a lie.  But we still get the JLA tackling alien forces!  Oh yeah... and we also have to read about Mind-Grabber Kid, a character that makes Snapper Carr almost Batman-like in terms of appeal!  All this, plus FINALLY my thoughts on "Wonder Woman", and more!  So if you're feeling lively, use those mind grabbing powers to send some feedback to justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com, or just leave me a comment on the podcast page!  Thanks as always!


JFD Commentary: Galactic Guardians- The Wild Cards

July 4, 2017

As a special holiday weekend treat, I decided to throw in another cartoon commentary!  This time, I cover an episode from "The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardian" show, entitled "The Wild Cards"!  Who are our shadowy vilains that appear in the episode?  Which member of the Royal Flush Gang do I have a crush on?  Does Batman make a precident for being sneaky on Apokalypse for this episode?  Listen, play along, and find out!  And as always, please feel free to leave some feedback my way at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com, or drop me a comment on the podcast page!  Thanks, and Happy Canada Day/Fourth of July to all!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 15

July 4, 2017

In this episode, covering JLA 15, "Challenge of the Untouchable Aliens", I offer YOU up a few challenges!  Such as...  Can you take Snapper Carr's INSANELY terrible dialogue in this issue?  Will you buy Batman's REAL loose definitions of what his "Judo" abilities entail?  Is coming from an alternate Earth equal to being an actual "alien"?  All this, plus randomness and your feedback!  And speaking for hunting for feedback, you can send feedback... if you even exist one minute separate from me... at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com, or leave me a comment on the podcast page!  Thanks, as always, for your time, and hope you enjoy!

Felix Faust is back... TWICE... in JLA 49!  Thrill to astonishing action sequences!  Chill to Hal Jordan making rather... interesting threats to feminine fairy folk!  Get ill at the resolution involving a character I'm getting tired of seeing pull the JLA out of fires!  All this, and more!  But I'm never tired of hearing from you, so go ahead and drop me some feedback at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  Thanks a bundle!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 50

June 19, 2017

Were you clamoring for the return of the Lord of Time?  ... Anyone?  Anyone?  Well, you're going to get it!  In JLA 50, we see the LoT menace our glorious team once again, using an innocent Vietnam War... edgy for a DC book.. combat veteran!  Witness the drama of our team battling endless antigravity assaults!  Thrill at the extended guest appearance of big-timer Robin!  Shout with joy for having Snapper Carr actually be left behind on an adventure!  All this, plus your listener feedback!  And now's the time to consider using your ancient bug fossil to energize your correspondence towards my inbox at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  Or just feel free to drop me a comment on the podcast page!  Many thanks!

Get ready for a feast of the ears as I exhaustively cover JLAs 32 and 23!  Brain Storm and his "adult" helmet!  Zazzala and her scheme for immortality!  All this, plus a small tribute to the passing of Adam West, thoughts on "Teen Titans - The Judas Contract", and your feedback!  So why not load my inbox with content, as I have this episode, by dropping me some thoughts at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  It is always appreciated, and thanks!



Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 18

May 30, 2017

Watch out, Acroyear!  You're about to be swarmed by Baron Karza's forces!  ...  Wait, you mean this "Journey into the Micro-World" from Justice League of America 18 DOESN'T involve the Micronauts?  Hold on, let me read this tour guide...  Superman acts like a HUGE jerk in this issue?  We get a plot that would probably belong on the nightstand of a certain "Alien: Covenant" director?  And... oh, HELL NAW!  SNAPPER CARR PLAYS THE HERO OF THE STORY?!?  Well, I hope you listeners enjoy this bizarre trip more than I did!  And should you wish to leave some feedback on the bizarre happenings, please do so either as a comment on the podcast page, or by dropping me an email at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  Thanks!
