Host Baron Banksy takes you on a journey into the world of Donald Duck and his nefarious, surprisingly backward-thinking Uncle, Scrooge. These episodes are a parody and any resemblance to LORE or any ducks living or deceased are purely circumstantial. Please note that about five seconds are missing near the beginning. Someone stole them from me and we are currently looking for the culprit and assure you that they will be returned as soon as possible.
Marvel Carlin continues his dramatic retelling of early Marvel history, including the origin of Spider-Man and the fledgling superheroes' first clash with an alien invasion. This is a parody of Steve Berg's Hardcore Game of Thrones History, which is a parody of Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, and I will not apologize for it (yet).
Dazzlin' Marvel Carlin steps in to take over the telling of "The Marvel Saga." Learn about the early history of the Marvel Universe from someone who's been there. Note: This is a parody of Steve Berg's Game of Thrones parody of Dan Carlin's Hardcore History. That's right, it's a parody of a parody. I'm whittling my potential audience down to a finely honed point.
Jeanne and I discuss one of Neil Gaiman's early masterpieces, Mr. Punch. We discuss the amazing, impossible-to-categorize art of Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean in general as well.
William returns to the Robo Force comics. He's still taking those "supplements" his wife gave him. Madness ensues.
Mac gets ahold of the Night Man comic and tells you the story! He really rubs it in that he's doing this and not Charlie. (This may make no sense to you if you don't watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia)
Remember that guy that I let read his copy of Comic Cavalcade #19 when he was drunk? He recorded part two the next morning. He had kind of a hangover, and some remorse about having bought the comic. He finishes the Flash story, and then reads a more interesting one that happens to have no superheroes in it at all.
Another crossover episode with Comics on Infinite Earths on the Retro Rocket Entertainment podcast (http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/retrorocketentertainmenthotmailcom). I invite local comedian Cameron Cooper to discuss Deadpool vs. Carnage! Great stuff. Also a good intro to the concepts surrounding the Deadpool comics if you're not familiar.
Another crossover episode with the "Comics on Infinite Earths" series at Retro Rocket Entertainment's podcast (iTunes, etc). My wife and I discuss the Fraggle Rock comic books (and TV series) of the mid-1980's!
Crossover episode with the "Comics on Infinite Earths" episode series at Retro Rocket Entertainment (find it on iTunes, etc). Can it be a crossover episode if only one person is on it? Let's find out. Discussing and reading a couple of those little comics that came with Masters of the Universe action figures.
This episode was a big hit when I put it up on Facebook briefly. This is an improvisation in which I accidentally get "all coked-up" and proceed to read a Robo Force mini-comic (by Ideal) to the reader while frantically trying to explain that it was the most disappointing toy of the 1980's.
Getting tired of the stories in this issue, I ask "David Goodtimes" from WBOI's Tossed Jazz Salad to fill in for me. We discover that he has a very interesting Crypt-keeper voice (that story starts around 21:00).
The second half of The Bruce Lee Story from a very special all-Bruce Lee issue of Deadly Hands of Kung Fu Magazine (1976). Afterwards I read an article about the beginnings of the merging of the martial arts industry and the stuntwork industry as "kung fu" films began their ascent to mainstream. That article may or may not be interesting, but Bruce Lee never fails to be.
