In this, our 466th anniversary episode (yes, we get that anniversaries don’t work that way), Darren, Paul and Travis take a look at Superboy and the Legion issue 247, for the conclusion of the battle with the Fatal Five as well as a celebration and a Legion leader is elected!
Darren and Paul are joined by Travis Ellisor and Michael Grabois as they pay tribute to Len Wein who passed the day we recorded this episode, which was coincidentally scheduled to contain Len’s first Legion story. We take a look at his life and career, as well as his first Legion stories.
Len Wein, 1948-2017. RIP.
While Darren is off at DragonCON, Paul is joined by Michael Grabois to cover the remainder of the Karate Kid series, including his crossover with Kamandi, and a team up with Batman!
Darren and Paul are joined by Michael Grabois and Travis Ellisor to attempt a truly staggering marathon. They summarize and annotate the first 10 issues of Karate Kid’s solo series! The Action! The Exposition! It’s all here!
Darren and Paul are joined by Travis Ellisor as they look at the final chapter of Earthwar. Finally, the Legionnaires know who is behind the invasion of Earth, but are they ready to stop Mordru?
The Subs take a look at the penultimate chapter of the Earthwar story. Then it’s back to 1966 where the Legion once again meets the dynamic duo!
In New Adventures of Superboy issue 20, the young Kal-El finds himself a captive on not just one but two alien worlds, with differing reasons as to why he can’t escape! Paul digs into this early 80s comic book goodness, and brings it all to you!
The Subs take a look at Superboy and the Legion of Super Heroes 243. The Earthwar plot thickens, and the Legionnaires aren’t alone in fighting it!
Following last week’s prologue, Darren and Paul step into the Earthwar proper, as it all starts hitting the fan! Also, some Legionnaires go out for dinner and find out they’ve bitten off more than they can chew. Next up, it’s San Diego Comi… er Media Convention. What Legionnaire is joining the Fantastic Fo… er Incredib… er The Terrifics? Then, after all that, join in on the fun as we provide commentary to the SDCC Trailer Reel, follow the links below, and hit play when we do the countdown.
