February 13, 2019

Hey everyone! This episode of Reggie's Comics Stories is a reading of Cullen Murphy's 2017 article for Vanity Fair, titled "When Fairfield County Was the Comic-Strip Capital of the World." Mr. Murphy is the author of Cartoon County: My Father and His Friends in the Golden Age of Make-Believe, a great book about cartooning and cartoonists in the mid-twentieth century. The essay is full of information about comics peddling, and anecdotes about some famous illustrators, here's hoping that you enjoy it!

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 128 - The Amazing Spider-Man vs. The Prodigy (1976)

February 10, 2019

Hello, o responsible listeners! In this episode, curious teenagers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) look at a collaboration between Marvel Comics and Planned Parenthood in 1976: The Amazing Spider-Man vs. The Prodigy by Ann Robinson and Ross Andru! After some biographical info about the creators--the best that could be done under the circumstances--the promiscuous hosts look at the beginnings of Planned Parenthood and then read every page and panel of the comic book to hand. Then the pair let their hair down and check out the Second Sexual Revolution--that's the groovy one, folks. Finally, they wrap it all up with some terrific listener mail! It's an episode you'll want to share with your family--IF you choose or have chosen to have one!

February 6, 2019

The Titans and Young Justice are standing at the edge of tomorrow... today, because it's Graduation Day!

Join your humble host (@acecomics) as he shares not only this story, but the story of traveling for his very own Graduation Day... and how this storyline haunted his troubled trip East.  Learn that the only thing more dangerous than a malfunctioning Superman Android is... having to schedule blog posts to publish ahead of time, especially when the person writing them forgets how Time Zones work!

All this plus an important announcement about the future of the Chris is on Infinite Earths blog!

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 127 - Superman #123 (1997)

February 3, 2019

Hello, denizens of Metropolis! In this episode, amateur electricians Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) read an issue of Superman in which he wasn't quite feeling himself: vol. 2 #123 from 1997, by Dan Jurgens and Ron Frenz! After some creator bios and a little backstory to explain how Superman contracted this condition, our technicians go through every page of this seminal issue, lending their vocal bleats and sarcastic commentary along the way. After a music break, our pair return to close out the bios for Jurgens and Frenz, and then talk about some other instances where Superman changed his look--usually not by choice! It's a transformative episode, you don't want to miss it!

Thanks to Lord Andy for suggesting the book!
