In this week’s ball-clouding episode, Magnus is forced to change the subject for reasons that will become clear later.
For right now, this is a show that’s been planned since the very beginning of Trentus Magnus Punches Reality. It’s been delayed for various reasons on too many occasions to count but this week offered the perfect opportunity to do a show about The Shadow Strikes #01, written by Gerard Jones and illustrated by Eduardo Barreto.
The Shadow unexpectedly reconnects with an old flame from the old world. Meanwhile, the lovely Margot Lane becomes embroiled in a mysterious cult led by a nigh-mythic figure from the early 20th century.
Fact and fiction collide in this, the first issue of an epic comic book series. Who can say where fact ends and fiction begins?
Or which is which?
Once that’s all over, Magnus takes the occasion to yammer on about ‘Dead Again’, a Superman storyline from 1994 which the hosts of From Crisis to Crisis have been covering for a while now. And, in typical Magnus fashion, your wise leader delivers an angle to Dead Again that you’ve never heard before and will never hear anywhere else!
For those determined to ruin the Internet for everyone else by perpetuating click-bait on Facebook, “You’ll feel like you’ve been kicked in the balls when you hear how Magnus ties Reign of the Supermen, Dead Again and the Death of Clark Kent together!”
Due to the avalanche of ass-kickery, unfortunately there was just no time for listener feedback this week.
Something will need to be done about the backlog of feedback. But don’t worry, loyal subjects, your leader has a few ideas.
So don’t let the lack of feedback this time get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is firstname.lastname@example.org as the other seems to be having technical problems.
In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, the leader permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to email@example.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
