Welcome to Episode #23 of “TALES OF THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA”, which sadly sees the closing of the first era of this podcast as we cover the last two JSA stories from ADVENTURE COMICS. At least 27 minutes of audio had to be cut because Michael couldn’t stop crying like a big baby. Before that happened, though, Scott and Mike read some more of YOUR e-mails and the usual subjects of the JSA appearance on SMALLVILLE and BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD came up in addition to other musings from the BEST PODCAST-LISTENING AUDIENCE IN THE KNOWN MULTI-VERSE!!
Then, the guys get right into ADVENTURE COMICS #s 465 and 466! In #465, Mike and Scott scratch their heads a lot at the general goofy nature of the story and ask seemingly unimportant questions like — WHY IN THE HELL IS A HOSPITAL DEVELOPING A POISON PILL THAT’LL DISSOLVE IN FIVE HOURS AN KILL THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE?!! In issue #466, they discuss the REAL reason the JSA disbanded in 1953! The guys love this story despite a few nit-picks (but what else is new, right?).
Also in this episode — THE ADS RETURN! Whoo-hoo!! THERE’S EVEN A HOSTESS AD — THAT DOESN”T INVOLVE BASEBALL! Plus, Mike and Scot catch up on the “Elsewhere in the DC Universe” segment (including some issues they missed last month, the fools!).
So, :sniff, sob: The JSA’s ongoing adventures may be over (for now), but there is still A LOT of awesome to come!! “Required Reading” for next week — JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (Vol. 1) #s 135-137, 147 & 148, and 159 & 160. That’s right, folks! You asked for it and they’re bringing it! Scott and Mike WILL be tackling the JLA/JSA crossovers that took place AFTER the release of ALL-STAR COMICS #58.
NOTE — The Two True Freaks! now have a phone line where you can call and leave a completely inappropriate message – We just might use it on the show! It’s 585-COP-LURE!! ( 1-585-267-5873 )
