The Great Darkness Saga Ep 005 - Legion #288


Welcome to the fifth episode of the limited podcast series KSCGSF Presents: The Great Darkness Saga, chronicling the epic 1980's saga starring the Legion of Super-Heroes, as it is chronicled in the pages of the Great Darkness Saga Deluxe HC and TPB Collections. This will take us on a 14 issue (and thus 14 episode) trip spanning Legion of Super-Heroes #284 through #296 & including Legion of Super-Heroes Annual #1.

This time out we continue our coverage with Legion of Super-Heroes #288, cover dated June 1982. With this issue we mark the beginning of a new and legendary era of Legion comics, as Pat Broderick has left the book entirely, leaving Keith Giffen as the head honcho and sole penciller in this 25 page epic!

RCS Ep 030 - The Hunt: New Marvel & DC Rebirth 3-Packs in Walmart ?!?!?


Welcome to the landmark 30th Episode of Random Comic Showcase, the Podcast where I look at some other element of comics or geek culture that doesn't fall into the normal format of any of my other shows on the feed.

Naturally, to mark this milestone episode, I return to probably the most commonly discussed topic on these Random Comic Showcase episodes, "The Hunt" and the latest place I've located comic books. Yes this time out I'm once again ranting and raving about my recent comic book finds, which include a new format of comic multi-pack, once again located at Walmart. Gone are the comic 4-packs with 80's and 90's Marvel Comics, that I waxed nostalgia about back in the late spring/early summer. Those mylar bags of joy disappeared a few weeks after I waxed nostalgic about them, but after a couple of month absence, they have been replaced by new Marvel & DC Comic 3-Packs, chalked full of nothing but recent material. And I ramble on all about here in this episode.
