There’s magic in the air! Can you feel it tingling? Matt and I (Cat) sure can! We spill some magic juice and keep on talkin’ comics for another week! Yup!
First up we give a Back Issue Spotlight to RAT BASTARD from Crucial Comics. This 1997 comic began with a four issue arc called FIT FOR A KING, and Matt and I debate if it was fit enough for the read. Who is RAT BASTARD? Who are the HUJA BROTHERS? Well listen and find out what we rate RAT BASTARD on the Mylar Meter!
Next up Matt stands up for SCARLET WITCH while I wave the magic wand for ZATANNA in our VERSUS segment. Hear how I (CAT) can’t pronounce Zatanna correctly and Matt shows off his massive magical Marvel knowledge. Who is cooler? Who is more magical? Will we even settle on a final score?
Tune in, listen and then get back reading those comics books!! Reading a comic book a day keeps those superheroes flying! Pass it on! KRAK-A-DOOM!
Matt and Cat get together to talk comics and spread some Halloween spirit in the summer month! We start off by talking about Elvira, The Mistress of the Dark. Matt actually got to meet the Mistress at Golden Apple Comics and he gets a bit distracted fantasizing about his experience. Listen for the drool!
For a Back Issue Spotlight we review the comic book Elvira Mistress of the Dark issue #122 from Claypool Comics.
While Matt was at Golden Apple he went for a BLIND PULL and picked up Marvel Spotlight #13 featuring SON OF SATAN, from Marvel Comics. Hear us tell you about the origin of this cursed soul, the spawn of the devil and learn how his mom was seduced by the evil. (He was handsome, they touched…a lot! Seriously, it’s in the comic book!)
The show then gets serious when we set up the battle for the ages, a VERSUS where Matt take on Wolverine and Cat champions LOBO. Bad Ass vs. Bastich, Frag Frag FRAG! Who’s the best man? Who’s gonna win the a fight? Listen and find out!! Then go read some more comics!
The back issue duo Matt and Cat are here to talk about comic books and introduce a few new segments! First up with VERSUS Matt takes up MARVEL’sMr. Fantastic/Reed Richards and I, Cat, root for DC’s The Elongated Man/Ralph Dibny. We square them off for some comparison and a friendly super hero battle. Who will win? The Smartest Man in the Marvel Universe, or lovable comic relief Ralph?? (Let us know who you’d choose in the comments!)
Next we present IF YOU LIKE DOT, DOT, DOT where we offer a comic book recommendation of Vertigo’s 10 year running series FABLES.
MARKETING MONSTROSITIES checks out ads crossing Candy Bar’s and Superhero posters and Zit cream with the X-Men.
Zit Fighters and X-Men!
Candies From Clark and Superheroes!
Last, and certainly never least, we offer up our PANEL TO PROJECTOR comparison of the 1975 WONDER WOMAN TV pilot starring Lynda Carter! What’s not to love? Matt does some drooling while I failed to admit I have a Wonder Woman outfit of my own. (It’s true!)
Super! Hot! WONDER WOMAN! Lynda Carter
Get to listening, enjoy the show and then you can get back to that closet full of back issues!
