Episode 413 – I’m Out of Order? You’re Out of Order!

Darren and Paul play catch up! First, they talk about the cons they recently attended, and then they go out of the Emerald Empress story to talk about the issue before that story, one which they missed previously. Oops! It’s issue 86, we haven’t found the Empress yet, Zendak is still the Chief, and Blok is trapped, but he’s not alone!

Episode 412 – The Superboy Chronicles: The Secret of the Super Power Failures

Fresh from a day at Fan Expo, Paul returns to put right what once went wrong, and records an episode about New Adventures of Superboy issue 5, which somehow was lost to the earlier coverage of the series (thanks to the eagle-eyed Thomas Lanes of the Parliament of Rooks podcast for noticing this!). How do Superboy’s powers start to diminish, and what do Ma Kent’s prize-worthy tomatoes figure into it? Also, how does this story tie into one of Paul’s all-time favourite pre-Crisis Superman stories? Those answers, and more, lie within!

Episode 411 – The Superboy Chronicles: This Planet is Condemned!

Paul takes a look at July 1980’s New Adventures of Superboy issue number 7, wherein the boy of steel is sent to yet another planet to save their civilization. Will he stay on another world, never to return to Earth? Spoilers Ahead: No he won’t. Also, which is faster, Pre-Crisis Superman’s super-brain, or a Tandy TRS-80 with its blistering 1.77khz processor and between 4 and 16 kilobytes of RAM? The answer may surprise you!

Episode 409 – Substitute Squad: It’s Movie Time

The Sub Squadders are joined by Stewart MacWilliam and Erik Matthews as they discuss the latest in DCTV news, as well as the Suicide Squad movie. Spoilers abound, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, save this one for later! It’s a fiery debate, and like the best Squad stories, you’re waiting to see who gets blown up!
