Episode 33: The Strange Tang of Queer Dirigible…BUCK ROGERS Style!
Matt and Cat are takin’ it old school with a flashback to the Sci-Fi classic, BUCK ROGERS!!! Thanks to a comic book from FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, we read BUCK ROGERS from HERMES PRESS. The book featured original BUCK ROGERS strips and a few SUNDAY edition stories too!
Then we continue on to our PANEL TO PROJECTOR segment with the 1930′s Buck Rogers serial starring BUSTER CRABBE AND the 1979 movie BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25th CENTURY with Gil Gerard and Erin Gray.
Listen on to our journey to the past, and to the future from the 20th Century to the 25th! It’s a pretty rip roaring adventure! KRAK-A-DOOM!! YUP!
The second Anthology comic of our chat is a reverse PANEL TO PROJECTOR, hence a PROJECTOR TO PANEL where the movie came before the comic book. That film and comic is CREEPSHOW, from 1982. The stories by Stephen King came collected in a movie and a comic and we tell you all about the groovy picture book!

The issue in question is #6, the introduction to one of Spidey’s most famous super-villains, THE LIZARD.
From there we dive right in to our review of the latest summer blockbuster, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN for Panel to Projector. Did we love it, or did we hate it? Did we nerd out in a nerd rage or spew compliments galore! Well tune in to hear what we rattled on about. It’s all about Marvel’s web-head SPIDER-MAN!!!!

Hello and welcome to MATT AND CAT HAVE BACK ISSUES!
Episode #1: Appropriate Level of Destuction or ALOD!
Matt and Cat have joined forces to battle the evil that is bland comic discussion. Our mission: To talk about Comic Books and Comic related topics…In this first episode we focus on Marvel’s THE AVENGERS! We both saw the movie on Friday, adding to it’s big box office numbers, and we came together to discuss our thoughts for PANEL TO PROJECTOR, the segment where we review a movie and see how it fared jumping from the panel pages to the big screen.
After that we picked up a few of our Back Issues of THE AVENGERS from the 80′s and 90′s for some RELATED READING. During our comic discussion we cover a lot of Marvel character history and both agreed about how much we dislike Rob Liefeld’s artwork!
Who has legs like that...Seriously?
From there we introduce our segment known as MARKETING MONSTROSITIES and take a look at a few unusual ads found within the comics of our collection. Remember this craziness?:
Take a listen for the full comic book related nonsense that Matt and Cat have to offer! We have a ton of Back Issues that need to see the light of day once more! Keep on reading comics, as that’s what we plan to do!
