JC went out of town over the weekend and left his little show in the hands of his former sidekicks … former as in – they did such a good job, that they’ve taken over JC’s Fortress of Onan, as it were, and they’re making their own show: “Stuff We Already Own That We Lend One Another Until We Run Out Of Stuff And Have To Come Crawling Back To JC So That We Have Something To Read” … still working out the kinks on this one …
Anyway – revisit some classic comics milestones with Jeff and Robert in this week’s issue – as well as some new stuff – and enjoy the sounds of two guys making fun of another guy who isn’t there to defend himself!

Shade the Changing Man is not the same as “The Shade” that is in the new DC maxi-series. Shade the Changing Man is now in Justice League Dark.
And 4th World!
Scott Pilgrim was/is a comic book. Jeff and Bob didn’t say that, so I will.
Bob is THAT young and Jeff is THAT old.
Yes. Ben Urich is the guy who knew Daredevil’s secret identity and got in trouble with JJJ, and he runs “The Pulse”. And I don’t piss off Luke Cage, I know better.
Jeff read Robin from my collection.
“By 1964, sales on Batman titles had fallen drastically. Bob Kane noted that, as a result, DC was “planning to kill Batman off altogether.” In response to this, editor Julius Schwartz was assigned to the Batman titles. He presided over drastic changes, beginning with 1964’s Detective Comics #327 (May 1964), which was cover-billed as the “New Look”. Schwartz introduced changes designed to make Batman more contemporary, and to return him to more detective-oriented stories. He brought in artist Carmine Infantino to help overhaul the character. The Batmobile was redesigned, and Batman’s costume was modified to incorporate a yellow ellipse behind the bat-insignia.” – from Wikipedia
Julius Schwartz then became EiC and ushered in the Silver Age with his reinventing of The Flash and Green Lantern. So you can blame “Julie” for DC as much as you blame Stan for Marvel.
I prefer to end on Gina Torres’s ass than on Freddie Prinze Jr. But to each his own…
I’d forgotten about this comments section.
