Talking about back-up stories led into Alan Moore and Swamp Thing, Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye, Shade The Changing Girl, Groo Fray Of The Gods and Love And Rockets. Then Pullapalooza closes it out.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Harry Nilsson
Walking Dead is mentioned which quickly turns to creator owned comics and the black and white explosion of the eighties. A comparison of Alex Toth and Jaime Hernandez occurs, as well as a short discussion of nineties comics, titles about villains, newspaper strips and finding comics off the rack.
And of course, more Fantastic Four talk. Whoo hoo!
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Wilco
Al and Don start out discussing forgotten titles that have seemingly gone into oblivion,
and later talk about a band that never made the shuffle to obscurity. Kind of strange that neither one cared for The Eagles, but they seem to know the material quite well anyway.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Flamin Groovies
Al and Don discuss American Born Chinese and Boxers • Saints by Gene Luen Yang, which leads into a discussion of making changes in foreign places you don’t understand, and how little Don actually knows about world history. The Silent Invasion By Michael Cherkas And Larry Hancock and other black and white series from the eighties. Golden age artists that didn’t make the transition into the silver age and cartoonists that went into advertising.
