Mike was thrilled to make a second guest appearance on “the Irredeemable” Shagg Matthews‘ Justice League International: Bwah-Ha-Ha Podcast, covering the Giffen/DeMatteis era of the popular DC superhero team!
On the first half of the show, we paw through Justice League America #36, that finds freelance alien Green Lantern and kinda-sorta member of the Justice League, G’Nort drawn into a confrontation with his deadliest foe: a parody of Marvel’s Silver Surfer!
We get into what makes superhero comedy characters like G’Nort work — or not work — and what level of spoofing can slide into a mainstream superhero title without breaking its sense of reality. Plus, Mike just really likes G’Nort. Woof!

Mike makes no secret of the fact that he’s a superhero fan, and one of his favorite series was Justice League International, the 1980s incarnation of DC Comics’ premier superhero team. A stark contrast to a lot of the grimness and grittiness that was popular at the time, JLI was a light-hearted and character-centric book starring a collection of second and third tier characters like Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Guy Gardner, Martian Manhunter, and Mr. Miracle.
Mike was very happy to make a guest appearance on “the Irredeemable” Shagg Matthews‘ Justice League International: Bwah-Ha-Ha Podcast! We dig into the fourth issue of the series from 1987, which introduced Booster Gold to the team’s roster.
