2015 Christmas Episode

Russell’s Comic Brag

Marvels superhero battles
Marvel’s Greatest Superhero Battles

A trade paperback that reprints various superhero battles from the early days of Marvel, all written by Stan Lee. Each issue it prefaced by Stan Lee. There are a total of 12 battles including Hulk versus the Thing, Dr. Strange versus Mordo, Spider-Man versus Kingpin and many more.

Super Friends
The Super Friends

Super Friends was an ongoing comic book series published from 1976 until 1981. The title adapted the adventures of the popular Hanna-Barbera animated series, The Super Friends and took place outside of the established Pre-Crisis reality. Although the comic title is considered non-canon, the series is notable for introducing the characters that make up the Global Guardians.

This time out, we’ll be delving into the fifth story of the comic DC Special Series #21.  It’s a Superboy & The Legion Of Super-Heroes story entitled, “Star Light, Star Bright…Farthest Star I See Tonight!”  I have a couple of Comic Brags to talk about.  Finally, we will take a trip to the Comic Spinner Rack to see what Christmas Comics were available.

  1. An nice Christmas episode! Thank you for this holiday gift. I am a big fan of Superboy (Superman when he was a boy, not the clone), and I really love it when he has adventures with the Legion of Super-Heroes. My only complaint (and it has nothing to do with your podcast) is that the story wasn’t longer. I realize that it was one of several stories in the comic, so, as a practical matter, it really couldn’t have been much longer, but I think it reads, in some ways, as if it were the beginning of a longer story.
    Your coverage was, as usual, quite good, and I enjoyed your musical choices, too. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Catch you again in the spring!
