This episode is so packed we didn’t stop for a music break. But we did talk about Pee Wee Herman, playing Dungeons And Dragons with Lego, Disney comics, comic book adaptations and outright swipes of other artist’s work. It ends with talk of The Sandman by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon.
Al starts off with a joke about Johnny Carson, and Don ties it in to Jack Kirby. Somehow it moves on to barbarian comics (again), charismatic people who front bands, comic book inkers (again), art reference and other ramblings.
