The format for this story arc is terribly flawed. One week ago, Kate was told my Agent Chase to intercept…

September 2, 2013 3:50 pm Wow. I've been listening to you guys every week and visiting almost every day since 2006. I started listening when I got a desk job at a gallery that I hated working at, and was in a low period in my life, but listening to the POW podcast made it bearable, and gave me something to look forward to every week. I'm in a great, and very busy, period of my life and the podcast is still something I look forward to every week. I completely understand the need to let some things pass, but I am so, so, so incredibly happy that the POW podcast will still be coming out. So, thank you all for such a great time, and for creating such a great community that means so much to so many people. As Stan the Man would say, Excelsior!
May 29, 2013 10:56 pm @nl042 wait.....did Mike Parobeck pass away? I'm going to have to google this and brace myself for sadness. Yup, damn you wikipedia. He passed away at 30! God, I'm only 34 and that already feels like a baby. I'm sorry to hear that he's passed, but good to see that he's fondly remembered. I've been picking up the old Impact Comics The Fly, written by Mark Waid and drawn by Parobeck. Pretty neat.
May 28, 2013 7:50 pm This is awesome! Parobeck & Burchett (I'm fairly sure) did a 4 issue Elongated Man miniseries in 91' that I just picked up for about a buck an issue, and it's a lot of fun and so beautiful. I think they also did a Justice Society series together that was pretty good too. He's got a style that is kind of kid book looking at first glance, but he's such a great storyteller, he & Burchett worked really well together.
May 22, 2013 12:19 pm Thanks Jeff! I remember that post, and then much later actually reading the book. That's what the New 52 is missing, superheroes drinking the blood of buzzards to survive. Every April WTF gatefold cover should have just shown the main character munchin' on some buzzard gullet.
May 22, 2013 10:39 am I got this comic in a big stack of them when I was a little kid and I never got around to reading it either. I probably thought that it was some kind of "educational" comic. A few months ago I found all of the issues in a quarter bin and I've been reading them here and there, they are insane, but fantastic. Especially the scene where Aquaman tears out a buzzard's jugular with his teeth and drinks its blood so that he can survive in the desert.
April 10, 2013 12:31 pm This is pretty fascinating, thanks Jeff! I did not know that the whole "Death of" storyline was a time filling measure so that they could line the wedding up with "Lois & Clark". Last year at C2E2 I found a bunch of Superman titles that were before the "Death of" storyline, and I started gathering all of those wondering how it all lead up to Superman dying, and I'm still in the middle of reading through those. I remember "Funeral For a Friend" breaking my heart when I was a kid, up to that point I don't know that a comic book had ever really had a strong emotional impact on me.
April 4, 2013 3:29 pm @Kamilo: I'm with you, I've been of two minds with Axe Cop for awhile. I absolutely love how insane, hilarious and creative it is, but I hope that the creators/family know when to not pressure Malachai for material. With the inclusion of Hitler and the word "videologist", I imagine that someone else is writing it, and I'm totally cool with that. I'm looking forward to Flute Cop and his various transformations.
March 28, 2013 9:24 pm Good point about Conquest Paul, I hadn't really thought of it. Are Arn Anderson and Nature Boy Ric Flair up for roles in the Four Horsemen? A Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse featuring Nature Boy, Macho Man, Jesse The Body Ventura, and Gene Okerlund would be AWESOME.
March 28, 2013 5:00 pm So is Conquest still Pestilence? Conquest sounds like War, but anytime I start to write Conquest, I want to write Convoy. Mercy sakes, looks like we got us a convoy.
March 28, 2013 2:12 pm @microwave25 & KenOchalek: Cool, thanks. I knew that the white gunslinger was Death, but I think I mistook his companions to be the other Horsemen, I like KenOchalek's theory that they are just lieutenants/minions, they certainly show some skill. It makes me wonder if Death killed the other 3 Horsemen? There is that one panel page that shows him with the other two Horsemen, facing off against someone (the shape of the legs seemed to be womanly). I'm excited about this series, and that map at the end totally sealed it. SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS I love that a comet strike brought an end to the Civil War and the US government's war on Native Americans, and the whole country was divided up. Such an awesome idea. And yes, Bravestarr. There is a channel here in Chicago that plays that show at one in the morning. I woke up on the couch once not knowing what the hell I was seeing.
