Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 3: Bloodlines #1 (2016)

October 31, 2018

Bloodlines #1... from 2016?  Well if that seems like rather a random book to discuss here... you're not entirely off the mark.  Without this book, however, it's quite likely that this very podcasting "channel" would never have come to be!  You might consider this issue to be the gentle flapping of a butterflies wings, which ultimately led to over a hundred episodes (and counting) of the Cosmic Treadmill.

Join Chris (@acecomics) as he shares the genesis of his comics-podcasting "career", with many thanks to his friends over at Weird Science DC Comics.

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 113 - ICP: Halls of Illusion #1 (2002)

October 28, 2018

What's up, ninjas! In this episode, Juggalos-in-training Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) check out the world of the Wicked Clowns when they read Insane Clown Posse: Halls of Illusion #1, published by Chaos! Comics in 2002! After some biographies for creators Jesse McCann and Gerardo Sandoval, they provide a detailed history of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope's often misunderstoof group. Then, they go through every page of the comic, with the usual throat-shredding panache. After a break, containing the song upon which the comic is based, the hatchet-swinging two close out their look at ICP, provide a brief history of clowns, and talk about other famous comic book clowns through history. Plus: a bunch of listener mail! It's better than catching a bottle of Faygo to the head, you don't want to miss it!

Thanks to Toby Hagen for the suggestion!

Reggie’s Comics Stories ep. 2 - R.F. Outcault and the Yellow Kid

October 24, 2018

Hully gee, folks! In this episode of Comics Stories, Reggie (@reggiereggie) provides a quick overview of R.F. Outcault and his seminal creation, the Yellow Kid! He'll talk about its origins as magazine filler, up to a contentious property fought over by New York City's largest newspapers–leaving the creator entirely out of it. It's a quick listen that we're trying out, so let us know what you think!

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!
