Cosmic Treadmill ep. 81 - Ambush Bug Stocking Stuffer #1 (1986)

March 11, 2018

Greetings and Merry March? This week, Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) dust off a "lost script" from last year and read Robert Loren Fleming and Keith Giffen's Ambush Bug Stocking Stuffer #1, published by DC Comics in 1986! After some information about the creators, our holiday cheerists dive into all forty pages of this comic. Then, after a vocal break, they'll describe every appearance of Ambush Bug, and a controversy that wound up shelving the character for more than fifteen years! This episode is like opening the biggest present on Christmas morn, only to find it full of spring-loaded snakes!
