Dive into the deep end of the Bronze Age comic book nonsense pool with us as we take a look at Defenders #32. Our heroes continue their epic struggle against those nightmarishly noggined ne'er-do-wells the Headmen, and our hosts continue their epic struggle to figure out what the heck is going on! Surrealism and strange super villains abound! What role will Cam'ron's 'Hey Ma' play in saving the future of our planet? Tune in to find out!
Digressions and disagreements abound as our hosts take a look at New Teen Titans #35. Topics of discussion include: what to call the last bit of liquid in a 40 oz beverage, Maslow's Hierarchy of Wants, Kolchak the Nightstalker, DCU Jack Norris is an even bigger jerk than MCU Jack Norris, and the importance of not eating too many spicy spiders. All this, plus Hub says a silly sentence he thought of. Twice! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Brain transplants, carnival games, and animal husbandry abound as our hosts take a look at the delightfully bizarre Defenders #31! Topics of discussion include: half remembered Irish mythology; Dr. Strange's "Recreation Time"; the return of Elf With a Gun; a turban is not a physical deformity; and the most adorable double homicide ever! All this, plus a brand new Hostess Twinkie Theater Presents! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Hot Dang! In this episode we tackle the New Teen Titans Annual #2, featuring the debut of the imaginatively named new vigilante, Vigilante! Topics of discussion include: Adrian Chase was truly the World's Worst District Attorney, the prevalence of sushi bashing in the 80's, comparative Beast Boy physiology, and the ending of 'Roadhouse'. All this plus the surprisingly progressive DCU mafia, and the debut of six new supervillains. Enjoy! Enjoy!
Our hosts take a look at the 68 page Giant Size Defenders #2! Wow! That's a lot of pages! Fortunately, Hub and Cory have a lot of beverages to accompany their reading. For reasons unclear to everyone, Hub decided to make a flight of Manhattans inspired by the stars of the film '3 Men and a Baby'. Yeah, your guess is as good as mine. Topics of discussion include: Um, I don't really remember. Three Manhattans (and a drink a baby would like) turns out to be quite a bit of alcohol. I think there was something about sharks.
Cory and Hub take a look at the action packed News Teen Titans #34! This issue contains one of the most talked about plot developments in Teen Titans history, so naturally, our hosts discuss: the rules for spaghetti lap dances, Cory is a lot like Cyborg, the lack of BMX tricks in the movie Predator, and Adrian Chase is no Sam Waterston. All this, plus Hub makes a VERY funny pun about Beast Boy not turning into a dinosaur. Enjoy! Enjoy!
Cory and Hub take a look at the weird, but perhaps not as weird as it would like to be, Defenders #30! Fortunately, our hosts are perhaps a bit weirder than they'd like to be, so everything evens out. Topics of discussion include: Life Hacks for bad people, Mr. Magoo as a political allegory, the origin of the Maggia, Eric Van Lustbader novels, and how to order a drink in a bar! All this plus a new Hulkz Roolz and Hub is unreasonably harsh about regional community theater. Good Health, and Good Hat!
Our hosts take a look the self contained murder mystery whodunnit that is New Teen Titans #33! Our hosts are a bit goofier than usual in this one, which is really saying something! Topics of discussion include: moose and shark safety tips; being a Bruno Kirby completionist; which sea animals are the creepiest (hint: it's most of them); and which times it is appropriate to be a Joe Montana. All this plus we get really mad at Beast Boy for some stuff we made up that he did off panel! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Our hosts dive into Defenders #28 to read the conclusion of the Guardians of the Galaxy crossover. The issue is nearly incomprehensible, but fortunately, so are our hosts! Topics of discussion include: deadbeat space dads, tree clams, 31st century Frasier fans, and editing techniques used in the Highlander TV series. All this, plus the debut of Hulkz Roolz, and a new installment of Hostess Fruit Pie Theater! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Cory has returned from his travels and is back in the studio! Our hosts hunker down and read New Teen Titans #32. Topics of discussion include: Starfire makes an important decision, a clarification of fart etiquette, animal fun facts, that's not how thunder works, and Wally doesn't understand how juggling works. All this plus more of the clay court tennis talk our listeners crave! Enjoy! Enjoy!
