Darren and Paul are joined in conversation over all things nerdy, with San Diego Comicon having run through the past week, by our old friend Stewart MacWilliam. They cover the things that they’re geeking out over right now, and then get into issue #55 0f the Legion!
Darren and Paul go all Project Runway on the Legion’s new jackets and pouches, while the Legion handles a prison break on Labyrinth, and Bouncing Boy’s moustache lingers on!
Darren and Paul do their level best to get through a two-parter that had no right to be so. It even looks as though Giffen did his level best to avoid being in it. It’s okay though, because the end makes it all worth it. We read some feedback for us, and also some feedback for Levitz. At least WE never tried to transport a dwarf star!
Darren and Paul finish out the Starfinger Saga, as Cham and Colossal Boy are rescued from Char Burrane’s clutches. Also, Dream Girl takes a flight of fancy!
Darren and Paul dig into issue 52 of the Baxter Run, as the aftermath of Brainy’s trial begins to fall out. They discuss whether or not Polar Boy really WAS the worst Legion Leader ever, and who might challenge him for that title.
Darren and Paul take a look at the aftermath of the conspiracy as Polar Boy puts Brainiac 5 on trial. Then, six year old Ella French shares her opinions on Adventure Comics 247.
Subs HQ hasn’t been this full in a long time. Darren, Matt, Scott and Paul are joined by Michael Grabois of the Legion Omnicom to dig deep into the climax of the Conspiracy story as the conspirators face off against the Time Trapper. Kathooms abound, art is gushed over, kids are indoctrinated into reading the Legion, and we get to hang out with our friends and talk Legion, and isn’t that what it’s really all about?
400 weeks of Legion love and we could not be happier to have some of the best listeners out there spreading the Legion love.
Thank you all for being there through our shenanigans as we discuss the Legion, Barbecued Fish Sticks, Our Lives, Squirrel Attacks, and the Many, Many Kathooms. *take a drink*
So thanks from us to you, we couldn’t do it without your input, support, and love. #thesubs
The title was MEANT to be Starstruck, but even on the second take, Paul STILL said Star Truck! Then Darren doesn’t introduce himself… Well, the opening is a bit of a disaster, but think of it as the broken Multi-Lab from which one of the biggest climaxes in Legion history occurs… Legionnaires throwing stones in glass houses, and the return of an ally thought dead! It gets much better!
Darren and Paul take a look at Legion of Super Heroes (Baxter Run) 48, but first, they talk about a new book about Legion co-creator Al Plastino before digging deep into DC Universe Rebirth #1. (If you haven’t yet read Rebirth, skip ahead to 1:31:25 to avoid spoilers)
Love and Legacy: If that doesn’t scream Legion, we don’t know what does!
Darren and Paul dig deeper into the conspiracy within the Legion, make a stop at Nullport and get some stuff signed by Denny O’Neil.
