Batman Family #1

Batgirl and Robin must team up to face the ghost of Benedict Arnold, who looks to take over Washington, D.C., in “The Invader from Hell.” Plus, the origin of Man-Bat and more!

Batman’s name may be in the title,
but it’s Batgirl and Robin who take centre stage in the first issue!


This time out, we’ll be getting into DC Comics Presents #35. We’ll begin the episode with some Listener Feedback, plus a Facebook Page update.  (a little I-Tunes reviews begging too!)  Then we’ll go straight to the “Russell’s Comic Brag” segment.  I will be presenting a Spotlight for Superman’s Guest, Man-Bat.  Our “Whatever Happened To..?” segment will delve into Rex, The Wonder Dog (and Detective Chimp) where I will have a Spotlight Extra on Rex as well as the story itself.  I had to do another Hostess Ad (and I do believe it to be the best one I have done to date!)  And finally, we will take a trip to the Comic Spinner Rack.

World Of Krypton

World Of Krypton Mini-Series (1979)

With his world about to die, the scientist Jor-EL of the planet Krypton put his only son, Kal-EL, into a tiny spacecraft and sent it blasting on its way mere moments before Krypton exploded. That boy would eventually arrive on the planet Earth, where our world’s yellow sun would react with his Kryptonian physiology to give him remarkable powers. Kal-EL became known to millions as Superman.  World Of Krypton expands on the history of Jor-EL like never before.

Action Comics #355 (1967)

Biochemist Karl Keller has been imprisoned in a forced labor camp after criticizing his country’s leadership. Keller escapes after discovering some Kryptonian chemicals that when ingested give him an explosive punch. The scientist then comes to America where he becomes a boxer called the One Punch Kid. During one match, Superman disguises himself as Keller’s opponent and is surprised when a punch knocks him down.  Later, Keller creates a costumed identity for himself called the Annihilator. He holds a grudge against Superman, since the Man of Steel did not free him from the labor camp. The Annihilator then becomes a super-villain and his punch is able to best Superman. The Man of Steel is forced to retreat in order to develop a strategy against his newest foe.
