On this week’s episode, I’m paying homage to my days writing for The Great Curve as well as old posts on this very site (The Box) by grabbing a handful of weird and wild comics from the 60s and 70s and letting you know all about them. Specifically, I get into Shogun Warriors #1, Captain Marvel (no not that one…or that one), Tarzan of the Apes #177, House of Mystery #165 and The Peacemaker #4!
If you’re interested in combing through The Great Curve stories, you can do that thanks to the Wayback Machine! I made my own archive of the Wizard version of Kicking It Old School here.
If you’re interested in the Peacemaker article I wrote for Fandom, you can check it out here.
Lastly, please enjoy these highly curated panels from these comics.
On this week’s episode, I’m digging back into the comics Brian Michael Bendis had a hand in creating after moving from Marvel to DC a few years back. Expanding on Episode 41, this time I’m focusing on just the Wonder Comics imprint that he started which featured his own work as well as that of others like Mark Russell, Stephen Byrne, Amy Reeder, Joe Quinones, Sam Humphries and others on books like Young Justice, Wonder Twins, Amethyst, Jinny Hex Special and Dial H For Hero.
Want to give a listen to six and a half hours of my favorite late 90s/early 00s pop punk songs? Now, you can! I called it Four Minutes In Heaven because it made me giggle. I totally forgot that I also made a Weezer playlist called Throw Up The W.
You can still check out my old Angelfire page here. Sadly the Blue Note banner ad isn’t still around.
If you like music and/or comedy, you definitely need to watch this drum battle between Buddy Rich and Animal from The Muppet Show.
While you’re at it, here’s the 60 Minutes piece about Welcome 2 America and the Vault.
I did a search and found this 2012 post I did about discovering How Did This Get Made?!
