Two Brothers starts this episode off, which leads into The Umbrella Academy, The Airtight Garage and Where The Wild Things Are. The second half covers the 1966 version of the MLJ superheroes The Mighty Crusaders and other lighthearted comic books. We enjoyed recording the second half so much that we did it twice.
Al and Don go through DC 100 Page Super Spectaculars, Super DC Giants, Jack Kamen, Judo Master, The Rocketeer Adventure Magazine, Starstruck and Jim Starlin’s Metamorphosis Odyssey. Too bad the episode ends before they get to Don’s comics.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Steve Robinson & Ed Woltil
We start off with a discussion of influences, mention the difference between creation and contribution, and artists who work with a sketchy line style. Old Daredevil comics, the New Wonder Woman of the early seventies, Dial H For Hero and finish off with the Fantastic Four as always.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Ruby Sting
Changes in current comics, imaginary stories, Arnold Drake, variant covers and long running series by the same creators start out the show. Portrayals of Tarzan in comics, along with other Burroughs tales, glamorous jungle women of the forties, My Heroine Addiction, Captain Marvel, along with Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s Fantastic Four run to finish it out.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Pierre Legault
A very exhausted Al and Don start the show off discussing local horror hosts of yesteryear, and learned that a few are still around and working. Then it went around to finding comics you didn’t get in the past, and buying comics you already have.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Jean Wallace
