MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Geneva Wollett
Since the first half was trashed last time, we start off talking about the Marvel executive who says diversity may have alienated readers, which turns into the price of comics and creating new characters. Rock and roll lawsuits, Batman’s Strangest Cases, Paul Grist and books from the dollar box fills out the remainder.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: The Verve
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Groovy Cool
There were a lot of technical difficulties on this one, so please excuse the poor sound quality. Al is joined with Pat and discuss the comic books they were exposed to in the early sixties and what brought them into the fold.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Palehound
Al dedicates the episode to Vic Diaz, then joins Don in an episode long Pullapallooza. Joe Kubert’s Tarzan is discussed, along with his drawing and layout style. Al schools Don on Jay Scott Pike, and starts a discussion about Gray Morrow.
The Man-Thing, King Size Marvel books by Jim Starlin and Action Comics 413 carry on the middle part of the episode, then finish out with Tom Sutton, Dick Giordano, Burne Hogarth, Russ Manning and Barry Smith.
Al asks Don if there are any comics about beer and the conversation briefly goes onto The CPL, Filipino comic book artists Alex Nino and Alfredo Alcala. Wondering why Nestor Redondo’s King Arthur comic never came out, brought up the DC Implosion, Denny O’neil’s socially conscious work, Neal Adams’ angst driven work, and the unsung hero we know as Gray Morrow.
It’s the Christmas episode! Join Don, Al, and Dallas as they take a walk down memory lane and discuss their favorite Christmas-themed comics. Dallas chooses X-Men (of course), Al chooses Tales from the Crypt (of course) and Don is just a Scrooge.
After that, It’s gift time as the boys exchange presents on air and be merry to each other. The blissful times continue as we meet our once-per-episode quota of Walking Dead talk, before the show inexplicably becomes Two Dimension: The Music Podcast.
