King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun Ep 036 Giant-Sized Comics 101 - 80 Page Giants

Welcome to Episode 36 of the King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun Podcast, the podcast where I talk about my love of comics with an extra page count. As always, I am your host Kyle Benning, and this time out I begin my trek of exploring the publishing history of some of the “Giant Sized Comics” published by Marvel and DC during the Silver and Bronze Ages, in what I'm dubbing a subset of episodes called “GIANT-SIZED COMICS 101.”

King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun Ep 035 2015 Year in Review & Superman Rant

Welcome to the 35th Episode of King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun, the podcast where I sit in my car and talk comics over my lunch hour. This time out I take a look back at 2015 and the first full year of my podcasting effort, touch on some feedback, and talk about the state of Superman, the good and the bad, and touch on some of the plans for the various shows on the feed in 2016. Usually I try to keep my episodes all-ages friendly, but in my ranting this time out I let few swear words fly, so listeners beware.
