The High Five Podcast Episode 49 – Silver Age Shenanigans

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.

As always, you can email me at high5tj at gmail.com or follow me on Twitter and Instagram. Also feel free to subscribe to my YouTube Channel!
