Greetings Weirdlings!

Herman and Billy are back with some Stephen Strange content, gleaned from Marvel Premiere #11 and #12 respectively. Weird mischief ensues as our favorite Marvel spell-slinger comes to grips with the newly-acquired mantle of... THE SORCERER SUPREME.

Our other regular segments featured during the show are:

- The Recommendations of Raggador

- The Allies of Agamotto, in which we pay homage to Chase Grafton, who deemed us worthy of a 5 star iTunes review. A Bronze Age Alter Ego is his reward!

Please check out our blog at www.sinkintotheweird.com where some images from the comics discussed will be presented. Follow Billy on twitter @Billyd_licious and myself @IntoWeird and @darklongbox

Keep it weird, friends!

Into The Weird Episode 19: Revenge Of The Fawn

Into The Weird Episode 19: Revenge Of The Fawn

May 1, 2020

This week Billy and Herman tackle the most unorthodox and madcap Superhero team of the Marvel Bronze Age - The dynamic DEFENDERS. The storyline in question is particularly off-centre, as it involves hefty amounts of BODY HORROR and BRAIN-SWAPPING. And if that wasn't enough, an enraged BAMBI is thrown into the mix, just for laughs. Plus, The Elf with a Gun makes a return.

Due to this oversized episode only TWO segments are featured:

1. Main Segment

2. The Recommendations of Raggador!

For our shout-out segment THE ALLIES OF AGAMOTTO, please give www.sinkintotheweird.com a look, where a Podcast Addendum post can be found. Feedback can be sent to sinkintotheweird@gmail.com

Many thanks to our sponsor, the metal band SEVEN KINGDOMS, whose song IN THE WALLS serves as our Intro. Outro song Can't Get It Out Of My Head by ELO.

April 1, 2020

It's Doctor Strange VS Shuma-Gorath in Marvel Premiere #10. Get ready for a mind melting bout of mayhem, listeners! This is the BIG ONE!!

Other than the incredibly disturbing and cognitive dissonance-inducing main segment, our ShopTalk and Recommendations of Raggador Segments all make a return.

Please send any and all feedback to sinkintotheweird@gmail.com, and feel free to check out the blog at www.sinkintotheweird.com  , where a podcast addendum post can be found. Alternatively you can follow us on twitter @billyD_licious (Billy), @darklongbox (Herman), or @IntoWeird.

March 4, 2020

This week Billy and Herman take a look at THE INVADERS, featuring the Golden Age Marvel Heroes from the Timely Comics era, specifically INVADERS #31 (Aug. 1978). Basically, NAZIS DIE. So a good time is had by all. Except for the Nazis. They thought it sucked.

We also ascribe a Bronze Age Alter Ego to Ryan Daly aka Count Drunkula, who left us a 5 star iTunes review. Thanks, Ryan. You rock!

October 29, 2019

Happy Halloween, fearful ones!

For our Halloween Special this year Billy and Herman have deigned to hijack your ears with a gargantuan 4 hour marathon of horror comics. Because of the sheer length of this endeavor, we've had to separate the episode into two chapters. They are as follows:

CHAPTER 1: ToD meets LoD - Ryan Daly from 'Midnight... The Podcasting Hour' and the Fire & Water Network of Podcasts joins Herman for a discussion of Marvel's TOMB OF DRACULA #12-14. 

CHAPTER 2: Billy and Herman get blood-drunk as they talk Marvel's Vampire Tales #4, featuring Morbius the Living Vampire and Billy's absolute favorite horror story of all time, August Derleth's "The Drifting Snow."

An old segment briefly returns, in addition to our Shoptalk and Recommendations of Raggador bits. Hope you enjoy it, Constant Listeners.

Again, Happy Halloween from Into The Weird and The Longbox of Darkness!
