Cosmic Treadmill Special: Young Animal “Gatherum”, Episode 17

November 29, 2018

Greetings (for the second to last time), you Dangerous Humans!  That's right, this is the penultimate installment on of our Young Animal Gatherum series of episodes.  Doncha just love saying the word "penultimate"?  Seems like the sort of word people use incorrectly all the time... like "prolific".

Am I rambling?  Well, yes... because really, there isn't much to say here about the books we're reviewing this week.  They are all *penultimate* issues, and the seams of truncation have become rather visible as our creative teams stomp on the brakes to get their stories wrapped up.

Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 5: Superman: The Man of Steel #18 (1992)

November 28, 2018

Happy Belated Thanksgiving, Gentle Listeners!

This time out Chris (@acecomics) shares a sappy (and perhaps precious) story from his youth... during which he went from a powerful paperboy to humble odd-jobber, all in the name of keeping up with his favorite... and some new-to-him comics!  And also, how and why this very issue never fails to remind him of Thanksgiving... or Thanksgiving Eve, mostly Thanksgiving though.

Cosmic Treadmill ep 117 - Action Comics Weekly: Green Lantern Part Four (1989)

November 25, 2018

Greetings, oh Keepers of the Flame! Today, calendar-scrutinizing comics fans Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) conclude their look at the Green Lantern stories contained in DC Comics' Action Comics Weekly, in this episode covering issues #636 to #642, plus Green Lantern Special #2 by James Owsley, Dan Raspler and M.D. Bright! They go through every bizarre beat of these books, lending their raspy voices where applicable. Later, our Sunday-to-Sunday fellas look at some of the fallout from this weekly series; what happened to Malvolio and Priest, and other weekly series DC Comics has put out over the years. Plus...an alternate ending? The episode is full of mysteries and and goofy stuff...mostly goofy stuff. You don't want to miss it!

Cosmic Treadmill Special: Young Animal “Gatherum”, Episode 16

November 22, 2018

We've reached the second-half... of the second-season, and if we're being honest... it feels like, for the most part, we're just lumbering toward that finish line.  Join Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) as they examine the four Young Animal offerings for signs of truncation... and, you know them... they're probably going to kvetch about Doom Patrol's tardiness yet again!

Only two episodes to go... plenty of insanity still to go around!

Oh, and if you're listening to this on the day of release... Happy Thanksgiving!

Reggie’s Comics Stories ep. 4 - Bob Wood: Crime Does Not Pay, Eventually

November 21, 2018

Hey folks! In this episode of Reggie's Comics Stories, I bring you the salacious and tragic tale of Bob Wood, against the backdrop of a New York City that was a lot less put-together than was shown in contemporary media of the time! Except perhaps in that true crime magazine co-created by Wood himself, Crime Does Not Pay. It's a tale of vice, sex, and crime––and that's only what's contained in the four-color pages! Enjoy!

November 18, 2018

Welcome back, comics enthusiasts! In this episode, our weary weekly warriors Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) continue their look at the Green Lantern stories included in Action Comics Weekly, tackling issues #624 to #635 from 1988 and 1989! Consisting of one long story written by Christopher Priest and drawn by M.D. Bright, our calendar-efficient pair tackle every sweet second of Hal Jordan's dalliance with Captain Atom, and his meeting a three-hundred year-old ring-bearer named Malvolio! It's the only time this character ever appeared in comic books, so you won't want to miss it!

Cosmic Treadmill Special: Young Animal “Gatherum”, Episode 15

November 15, 2018

"Don't know what you've got, til it's gone" - A Disney Princess (we think)

It was with this flurry of episodes that Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) learned that the Young Animal imprint was going to draw to a close just three months later.  It was bittersweet news, to say the very least... but somehow, we managed to keep our will to live.

Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 4: Justice League America #52 (1991) PLUS: The Story of Super-Blog Team-Up!

November 14, 2018

Yes... we're only four episodes in... it's another bwah-ha-ha book, but there's a special reason for that.  And really, that's not the meat and potatoes of this episode anyway.  This time out, Chris (@acecomics) is joined by another Chris... Chris Bailey (@Charlton_Hero) of the SuperHero Satellite who shares the origins of the Mighty Super-Blog Team-Up!

After Chris (the usual one) discusses his first offering to #SuperBlogTeamUp, Chris (the other one) shares his comic book "secret origin"!  From his early days, reading coverless comics that missed the trash can... to his introduction to the internet comics community. 

Then... the main event, from the germ of an idea of a blogging crossover, to what became the Super-Blog Team-Up!

All that... plus, a special announcement!  It's a great time... check it out!
