Cosmic Treadmill ep. 112 - Twisted Tales (1987)

October 21, 2018

Ghoul gravening, scabies and mental men! In this horrific episode, our haunted house scavengers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) sift through the strange story of Eclipse Comics and the career of Bruce Jones, when they read Twisted Tales from 1987! After some background information--including why this unnumbered issue of a Pacific Comics series came out from Eclipse after Pacific's demise--they go through all three Bruce Jones-penned stories in the book, lending their arguable talents to the proceedings. This episode is scary enough to curl your toe hairs, you don't want to miss it!

Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 2: Justice League #1 (1987)

October 17, 2018

Continuing the "journey" of Chris is on Infinite Earths!

Chris never really wanted to start a blog... and with this episode, he can (kinda) prove it!  Justice League #1 (1987) originally appeared on chrisisoninfiniteearths.com on New Year's Day, 2017... though, it was originally supposed to hit the internet on New Year's Day, 2015 at the Bwa-Ha-Blog! (which never became a thing).

Ya see, it was something of a New Year's Day tradition for Chris to start (and abandon) a brand-new blog... so much for that Resolution to "write more"!  Two years (and a whole new blog) later, this discussion of Justice League #1 would finally be completed.

Hope you enjoy these brief "visits", and appreciate you joining me in these self-indulgent looks back at the Life and Times of Chris is on Infinite Earths!

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 111 - Vartox Week! Covering the Life and Times of Vartox the Valerian

October 14, 2018

Greetings, Eternals! In this episode, Brutal Exterminators Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) examine one of the weirdest characters in DC Comics' pantheon: it's Vartox Week! A discussion of every appearance of Vartox, with special concentration on Superman #281 by Cary Bates and Curt Swan, and Power Girl vol. 2 #7 by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, and Amanda Conner! Without skimping on the requisite creator bios, our swoon-proof mortals detail every issue in which Vartox appears, even if only for a panel. Plus, they detail the mysterious film origins of this character–both the origins and the film being mysterious! This episode is so chock full, you'll need a Hyper-Ear to listen to it!

Be sure to check out Chris' written posts for "Vartox Week," which started this whole mess: https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/p/vartox-week.html

Cosmic Treadmill Special: Young Animal “Gatherum”, Episode 10

October 11, 2018

It's so hard to say goodbye... and that's exactly what we do during this episode.  Two of our Young Animal pals draw to their conclusion this time around.  Carry on, Cave... See ya, Shade.  It's not a "forever farewell", however... because there's something called "Milk Wars" on the horizon.

In addition to sayin' ciao... we actually have a full line up!  That almost never happens!

These discussions originally aired as segments on the following episodes of the Weird Science DC Comics Podcast:

Episode 138 (08.27.2017) - Mother Panic #10

Episode 140 (09.10.2017) - Doom Patrol (vol.6) #8 & Shade the Changing Girl #12

Episode 142 (09.24.2017) - Bug! The Adventure of Forager #4 & Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye #12

Reggie’s Comics Stories ep. 1 - Mort Weisinger: The Man Who Wouldn’t Be Superman (1975)

October 10, 2018

Hello, comics enthusiasts! Welcome to the debut episode of a new show hosted by Reggie (@reggiereggie), wherein he'll be telling stories about comic books–the history, the industry, and pretty much anything interesting that didn't happen within the comic book pages themselves. In this episode, he'll read an interview with Mort Weisinger from The Amazing World of DC Comics (1987), conducted by Guy H. Lillian III, titled "Mort Weisinger: The Man Who Wouldn't Be Superman." It's a rare look into the mind of this famous...some might say infamous DC Comics editor. Enjoy!

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 110 - Spider-Man and Batman: Disordered Minds (1995)

October 7, 2018

Hello, brand loyalists! In this episode, dimensional transversers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) subvert time and space to read a once rare, now extinct crossover between Marvel and DC Comics: Spider-Man and Batman by J.M. DeMatteis and Mark Bagley from 1995! After the necessary creator bios, our duo subvert the concept of intellectual property and read all of the story "Disordered Minds," which also features villains Carnage and the Joker. Then, after an informative break, they return to the creators and talk about the other crossover titles co-published by DC and Marvel–and why we don't see them anymore! It's a crazy episode with its own internal logic and continuity...so it won't really matter to Chris and Reggie's personal story arcs if you miss it. But you still shouldn't!

Thanks to Christopher Hyden (@hydenc89) for the suggestion!

Cosmic Treadmill Special: Young Animal “Gatherum”, Episode 9

October 4, 2018

Our Young Animal revisit has officially reached "the staples"!  That's right, we are halfway through our planned 18-episode look at the pop-up imprint that could!

This week... It's really one'a them "Good News, Bad News" situations... ya see, after a few months... we finally get that next issue of Doom Patrol.  Thing of it is... it kinda smells like filler.  It looks great though... and gives us our Allred-fix, which is a good thing, since Bug! took the month off!

In addition to that issue of Doom Patrol, we will be discussing the penultimate issues of Shade and Cave... Mother Panic shows up too!

These discussions originally aired as segments during the following episodes of the Weird Science DC Comics Podcast:

Episode 134 (07.30.2017) - Doom Patrol (vol.6) #7 & Mother Panic #9

Episode 135 (08.06.2017) - Shade the Changing Girl #11

Episode 137 (08.20.2017) - Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye #11

October 3, 2018

Welcome everyone to the first episode of Chris is on Infinite Earths!

Today we are looking at Secret Origins #1 from 1986... which was originally discussed over at chrisisoninfiniteearths.com on January 31, 2017 (the site's first "bloggiversary").

This is a bit of a self-indulgent episode wherein not only will we look at the "Secret Origin" of the Golden-Age Superman... but of the Chris is on Infinite Earths blog!

The original post can be found right here.

We hope you enjoy this "side series".  If you do, please don't hesitate to reach out and let us know!

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 109 - Underworld Unleashed #1 (1995)

September 30, 2018

Greetings, soul-laden mortals! In this episode, naive bargainers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) kick off 2018's #BestEventEver crossover occurrence, when they read Mark Waid and Howard Porter's Underworld Unleashed #1, published by DC Comics in 1995! After the creators' bios, our misguided dabblers in the occult sift through every moment of this issue. Later, they look at other incarnations of the Dark Lord that have appeared in comics since the very beginning! There's no need to panic about this episode, you have nothing to lose...except for your soul! So if that's the sort of thing that would bother you, then yeah, go ahead and panic.

Be sure to check out the other podcasts and blogs involved in #BestEventEver! A full list is available at our show website.
