Top Five:  Worst Comic Book Haircuts

It’s episode #37. Aren’t you thrilled?

We recorded this in simpler times, before one of our favorite books (SAGA) become embroiled in a stupid controversy (PENISES).

But back in those halcyon days, we could all agree on one thing:  COMIC BOOK COVERS WITH SHINY HOLOGRAPHIC STRIPS ARE THE BOMB! Also? DA BOMB!

Issue 37 has a holographic strip. Episode 37 has holographic strippers. THIS IS NOT a coincidence.

Issue 37 has a holographic strip. Episode 37 has holographic strippers. THIS IS NOT a coincidence.

So, to recap: Holograms.  Penises.

Top Five: Weirdest Comic Books

WE ARE STILL ALIVE!

Those pesky radiated, robo-honey bees from Dimension K couldn’t keep us down for long – just about a week or two. And then blammo! We punched right through the thin membrane of soul-refracting plexiglass to freedom. To Freedom. TO FREEDOM!

Anyway.

Stu’s favorite book from last week:

Things get HAIRY in this issue of FF. (Get it? Because it focuses on Medusa and she is a character with lots of hair.)

Zach’s favorite book from last week:

Zach almost wept ionic tears when he realized this book was focusing on the Williams Brothers (aka - Wonder Man & the Grim Reaper). Zach is confident in his insanely misplaced nerditude.

Oh. Right. The podcast. THE PODCAST! THE . . . well, you know:  Earth 603 Podcast – Episode #36

Hey all!

We apologize for the interruption!

Episode #36 will be premiering next week! Lots going on here at Earth 603 HQ and we needed to take this week off.  Thanks for understanding!

We also have a pretty awesome double interview we’ll be publishing soon from two comic creators whose work we really love. Doesn’t that sound exciting?  (Well – it should. Because it is.)

Until then:

Oh, hello.

HI.

Stu & Zach didn’t love last week’s Avengers #7.  We just thought we should get that out of the way now.  But the cover was pretty.  Kind of.  Well – it wasn’t that great.  But it was serviceable.  Quite serviceable.  But there are some ugly ass comic book covers out there.

Ugly.  Ass.

For instance . . .

This?  Is not a pretty book.  Too sharp.  As a kid, reading this book made me so angry that I had to sit outside for a while.

So.  Yeah.  Some books are pretty fugging bugly.  You know what’s NOT ugly?  Why, writing a delightful note on an index card and scanning it, attaching it and e-mailing it to us!  And that’s just what our friend Tupper did!  Well done, E.T.!

Why, THANK YOU!

Hello.  My name is Zach.  And I have a crush on She-Hulk.  Always have.  Always will.

I’m ok with that.  I hope you’re ok with that.  She-Hulk was the star of last week’s FF #4.  It was glorious.  She-Hulk is very nice.  I’d like to be her friend.  I’d like to go to the movies with She-Hulk.  We’re both very tall so we’d have to sit in the back.  I’m ok with that.

Man-Elephant?  Really, She-Hulk?  And fix your clothes.  You look like a gammafied raggamuffin.#TatteredPachyderm

Sorry.  We just pulled up.  We ran out of super fuel.  But we found some more and got a free commemorative glass for our troubles.

Not THESE commemorative glasses.  We WISH!

Not THESE commemorative glasses. We WISH!

In this heartwarming episode of the Earth 603 podcast, we talk about stuff.  And things.  And comic books that would be appropriate for kids.  Well, Zach does.  As usual, Stu can’t help slipping in some sort of GWAR meets Sex Pistols OGN that’s OOP from Paraguay.  (As he does.)

SPEAKING of ridiculously cool music from Disney Afternoon video game adaptations – we’re still putting a megaton of our megabucks on the fact that the music from the Moon stage of the Ducktales video game might be some of the best music ever written.  Not just the best video game music – oh, no! – the best MUSIC.  We know, we know – you’ve already jump-started your electric naysaying rod.  WELL STOP!  Just for one god-blasted minute!  Take a listen before you cast the first duck-based stone!

Eh?

EH?

Not too shabby, EHHHH?

Well.  We don’t want to get in your way of listening to this week’s podcast, so let’s wrap things up, YOU KNOW?
