This time around you will be hearing from one of the great Superman podcasters, Billy Hogan. Billy will tell you about his comic book history as well as his history with Superman‘s Guests, The Legion Of Super-Heroes. He then will take you through today’s issue, DC Comics Presents #80. Billy closes out the show with a trip to the Comic Spinner Rack.
This time out, we’ll be getting into DC Comics Presents #43. We’ll begin the episode with some Listener Feedback, plus a celebratory Facebook number is mentioned. (there’s also some new begging and groveling for feedback and I-Tunes reviews!) I will be presenting an “updated” Spotlight for Superman’s Guest, The Legion Of Super-Heroes. (You may notice the difference in sound quality) I had to do another Hostess Ad (SORRY!) And finally, we will take a trip to the Comic Spinner Rack.
Russell’s Comic Brag
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.
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.
This episode is dedicated to J. David Weter,
the biggest Legion Of Super-Heroes fan I know.
This episode we delve into DC Comics Presents #13. I will be doing a Spotlight on Superman’s Guest Stars, The Legion Of Super-Heroes. Plus, we will go to the Comic Spinner Rack to see what other comics were on sale. Hope you enjoy!!
