Mike Returns to the Justice League International: Bwah-Ha-Ha Podcast!

Mike was thrilled to make a second guest appearance on “the Irredeemable” Shagg MatthewsJustice 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!

Check it out!

Episode 43 – Condorman

He Spies! He Flies! He Death-Defies!

In this month’s Single Serving Selection, we take to the skies above Monte Carlo with Greg Hatcher of the Atomic Junk Shop blog to swoop into Disney’s superhero/spy film that sank at the box office, only to rise again as a cult favorite: 1981’s Condorman!

When bumbling comic book artist Woody Wilkins is chosen for a simple courier mission  for the CIA, he makes an impression on a beautiful KGB agent who wants to defect. Now the only man she trusts to escort her to the West is Woody, who she believes to be a highly skilled secret operative.  Woody agrees to the mission, but only if the CIA will use its resources to turn him into the high-flying superhero from his own comic book: Condorman!
