Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Cosmic Treadmill, Ep. 19 - Weird War Tales #6 (1972)

October 5, 2017

By popular demand!  In the first poll-winning re-upload, Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) learn that war is hell (and strange!) when they read and discuss Weird War Tales #6 from 1972.  This special book was a request by good friend Deron Murphree who cites this as his first comic book, and was actually the final installment to originally be a segment on the Weird Science DC Comics Podcast!

From this point on, our Treadmillers would break off and go solo... and it's during this very episode that you can listen to their "Request Rules"... which were abandoned almost immediately, so disregard them when you hear 'em!  Imagine the Cosmic Treadmill only discussing a single comic every (other) week... p'shaw!


Thanks to Deron Murphree for the request!
