Miss me much? (It's really okay if you're just listening to this episode to "collect them all" for the event!) But I've come back for a brief reunion gig to talk about the two "Justice League of America" issues that crossed over with the "Blackest Night" event, 39 and 40! And if you regret my not getting to the Justice League Detroit period, this episode will... kinda scratch that itch. Featuring the awesome artwork of Mark Bagley! Featuring the... well, it's on a written page writing of James Robinson! Featuring the version of Doctor Light that I still detest to this very day! All that, and more craziness! Hope you all enjoy, and who knows... You may see me again sooner rather than later! (Maybe with this show coming back for an episode, that makes ME technically a Black Lantern...)
Hopefully you still remember your Barry White tunes, and have the strawberries with whipped cream ready, because it's part TWO of Ultraa Love Month! And today our blazing ball of Earth-Prime love tackles both the Justice League AND the returning Injustice Gang of the World in JLA issue 158! What effects do a negative wave beam have on both our heroes and villains? Who is this mysterious cloaked figure that leads the Injustice Gang to their new plot of vengeance? The answers to these questions, along with assorted stops of fun, await you! So unless you're busy hiding from yet ANOTHER super-battle in Central City, then head on over to a computer and type out your thoughts to the show's email, email@example.com! And a sincere thanks for all of your time and enjoyment!
Warm up the jacuzzi... Put on the Kenny G CD as background music... And open up that discount holiday bag of Lindt truffles! It's the first part of Ultraa Love Month for February! That's right, this ENTIRE month is dedicated to the ONLY super-hero of Earth Prime! Our Earth! With locks of red hair that would have made Axl Rose in his prime jealous! And in issue 153, we see his introduction! We also get to see a cameo by Julius Schwartz, Green Arrow acting like a PRIME jerk, and how Green Lantern Corps members handle a certain specific alien species! All this, plus the usual cover date comics fun, and YOUR listener feedback! So feel free to program your Maxitron to compose an email, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org! And as ever, thanks for your time and enjoyment!
Time for another double-length episode! Hey, blame two 100-page super-spectaculars, that were released in a 4 month cover date time span! So, let's keep THIS part simple! Justice League of America issues 111 and 112! The debut of Libra and the Injustice Gang! The return of Amazo! All this, plus your listener feedback! So, gather up that half of a feedback leaving ability, and please send something towards email@example.com! And a FULL thanks for your time and enjoyment!
It's gonna be a long one, people, so let's keep this part simple! The introduction of Starbreaker, the Cosmic Vampire! The meeting of Sargon the Sorcerer! And one issue that's practically an 80's sitcom "clip show"! All this, plus a practical longbox of monthly comic adventures, and your listener feedback! So unless you're occupied donating your own fear energies to cosmic vampires, then please feel free to leave the show some feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org! And as always, thanks for your time AND patience with getting this episode released!
This week out, we're talking about JLA 186, featuring the Shaggy Man! No, not the Reggae-infused Shaggy... Nor an activity that Austin Powers loves... That hairy android is back, and apparently the Russians are responsible for this! See Batman get one of his coolest moments in comics! Witness Ralph Dibny make a truly disgusting sandwich! Ogle at seeing kinda-sorta more of Black Canary than you would normally EVER see! All this, plus a rather historic cover date month's worth of discussion! So, don't wait for solar radiations and the Aurora Borealis to thaw out your keyboard! By all means, feel free to leave feedback at email@example.com! And as ever, thanks for your support and for your time!
Great... Now Batman is taking over THIS podcast TOO?!? Actually, as a late Christmas gift to friend of the show, John Moret, we're talking about a fun non-official Justice League of America adventure that was told mostly as backups in the first five issues of the "Detective Comics" section I'm talking about, and cumulates in one entire issue for the ending!
So, what threat serves to unify the League in another book? Would you believe... The debuting Calculator? (Just don't type out 8008 on his chest piece...) With artwork by Mike Grell, Ernie Chan and the debuting Marshall Rogers, the inks of Terry Austin, and the fun writing of Bob "Answer Man" Rozakis, how can you go wrong?!?
Now if you would please operate your own special chest key to activate your powers to send some email my way! The best place to send it would be firstname.lastname@example.org, and thanks as always for your time and enjoyment!
A Justice League of America member... quitting?!? Dr. Bruce Gordon's wicked side... appearing?!? The unacknowledged bro-mance of comics being recognized... in this issue?!? All these surprises await you in this episode's coverage of "Justice League of America" 109! Also, other comicy adventures, and your listener feedback! So don't wait until after the Crisis, and you get one of those anger-feeding black gems to be enticed to do so! Please let your thoughts be known with sending feedback to email@example.com! As always, thanks for your time!
Had enough Christmas-ish stories, yet? Don't fret, because JLA 152 is mostly a TENUOUS Christmas tale! We get many series of shocking events in this issue! Such instances include: Red Tornado, being the star of an issue! Superman, acting like an ABSOLUTE jerk! Major Macabre, proving how forgettable a DC character he truly is!
So don't wait for those alien magi to drop their mystical gifts to grant you the urge to write some feedback! Just utilize some of that seasonal inspiration to send me a correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org! And as always, thanks for your time and hopeful enjoyment!
What's this? An episode shorter than 2 hours? Only 1 issue to cover? This IS a Christmas miracle! Join me as I tackle a Yuletide tale of mysterious murders to solve in JLA 110, a return of an infamous Justice League villain, and... sadly... the return of a supposed "Justice League Member". But on the bright side, John Stewart fills in as this issue's Green Lantern, and the story itself is pretty fun!
So, want to leave some early presents for the show as a Christmas season surprise? Then by all means leave some feedback to email@example.com, and thanks again for your continued support!
