Lily and Jon are once again tackling an early adventure of everyone’s favorite web-slinger. This time out, Spidey tries to prove himself by saving the son of his arch-nemesis and then trying out for a super-hero team. Will he make the team or become the victim of a Communist plot? Come listen to find out!
This time out, we travel back five years to see the first meeting between Superman and Batman, and between our main Earth and Earth 2! Multiversal shenanigans abound, and I even hatch a crackpot theory about the still untold Death of Superman. Batman/Superman Volume 1: Cross World includes Batman/Superman 1-4 and Justice League 23.1: Darksied.
Four new episodes in a row, guys! It’s almost like we’re trying to be professionalish! This week out, Lily and Jon take a journey with the manly, shirtless Sgt. Fury as he leads his commandos through a “Midnight on Massacre Mountain!” And in the MCU Rewatch, we dive into the first episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
So this is big episode 52, and to celebrate this momentous occasion, I am taking a break from my usual coverage to take a look back at the New 52 as a phenomenon. You may think I hardly need a break cuz I’ve been so long without episodes, but this is the second of two episodes that I actually recorded a year ago, so there.
My guests on this episode are Paul French of the Legion of Substitute Podcasters podcast, Caleb Gerard of the Tales from the Longbox podcast, and Micheal Leyland of the Hey Kids Comics podcast. I strongly encourage following any or all of these shows as they have afforded me untold hours of listening pleasure. Thank you, fellas, for being on the show with me!
And thank you, the listener, for downloading and listening! See you in a week for BATMAN/SUPERMAN VOLUME 1: CROSS WORLD!!
With the recent announcement of Spider-Man’s involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Lily and Jon are adding the web-swinger to their coverage, but they have to do a little catch-up first. So beginning in this episode, coverage will alternate between Spider-Man and the rest of the super-hero pantheon. This time out, the wall-crawler’s tear-jerking, would-be-super-villain origin in Amazing Fantasy 15.
It’s been a year, but here is a new episode about New 52 Superman that, well, doesn’t have a lot of Superman. I started this back in the day and wanted to finish it before putting out new episodes. So here’s your chance to learn all about Earth 2 and its history both in the New 52 and in DC continuity as a whole! And yes, there’s some Superman at the end, so don’t worry. 🙂
This is it, folks! It’s all been building to this! Avengers Inspirations 30 is all about the debut of the Avengers, first in the 2012 film and then in the first issue of their own series. You don’t wanna miss it!
