Zod! Show Me Magic Podcast - Episode 1: Cap v Stark, Where's the Sock?

My friend Rhys L. Griffiths and I have started a podcast! It's aimed at fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe who fancy dipping their toes into the comics. The set up is that we both discuss superhero movies and TV, while I also explain aspects of the comics to Rhys. It's all done (hopefully) in a fun, accessible way for the new or casual fan, and can be enjoyed by hardcore fans too.

It's called Zod! Show Me Magic.

The first episode is about choosing sides in Captain America: Civil War, but we also find time to discuss Dr Strange, The Killing Joke, and UK TV host/non-shoplifting guy Richard Madeley.

It can be found on Itunes:

I was recently gifted a lot of Silver Age DC Comics & they made me very happy

Recently a friend gifted me several boxes of his Silver Age DC Comics. To say I was grateful would be an understatement. I was over the moon to receive such a wonderful gift. It's not a question of the scarcity or the value of the comics (I have no idea how rare they are and have no intention of selling them). It's just exciting to actually own such huge parts of DC Comics history. I'm so excited I wanted to share just some of the collection here.

The collection filled over three longboxes.

The collection includes:

Some of the most iconic Superman stories (and some of my favourites).

Some famous issues of Justice League of America, including the legendary Earth 2 crossovers.

The first appearances of Bob Haney & Ramona Fradon's Metamorpho and Steve Ditko's The Creeper.

Some classic Teen Titans & Aquaman, featuring beautiful Nick Cardy artwork.

Some iconic Batman stories, including Robin Dies at DawnThe Joker's Five Way Revenge and the first appearance of Barbara Gordon.

The first (and only) Silver Age appearances of Bob Haney & Mike Sekowsky's B'wana Beast.

Famous issues featuring The Flash, Green Lantern, Adam Strange, Hawkman, and The Atom; five characters who epitomise the Silver Age possibly more than any other. 

Some iconic stories featuring the Legion of Superheroes.

Egg Fu!!!
