Into The Weird Ep. 26: Drunken Tea Party

February 19, 2021

This week Billy and Herm cover DOCTOR STRANGE #2 (1974). Join us as we plumb the mystery of who spiked the tea in Stephen Strange's Wonderland. We also check in on our captive damsel in distress Clea as she is menaced by that whack-job Silver Dagger. All this, plus Shoptalk, the Recommendations of Raggador, and our Allies of Agamotto Segments. You dare not miss it!

 

Thanks, as ever, to the incredible band SEVEN KINGDOMS, for their song IN THE WALLS, which serves as our Intro. Outro Song SORCERER by Stevie Nicks.

Into The Weird Ep. 25: Much Ado About Man-Thing

Into The Weird Ep. 25: Much Ado About Man-Thing

January 26, 2021

In this week's show Billy and Herm cover MARVEL TEAM-UP #68 (1978) by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, featuring everyone's favorite Wallcrawler and Marvel's very own muck-encrusted monstrosity.

After our shoptalk and recommendation segments, we also ascribe a comic book ALTER EGO origin story to iTunes Reviewer and TERRIFICON Producer Mitch Hallock, who generously gave us 5 stars. In Mitch's origin, the BRONZE AGE of Disco melds with THE DIGITAL AGE and modern Comic Conventions to create something completely unique and ultimately terrifying.

Feedback is always welcome. You lovable weirdos can reach us at sinkintotheweird@gmail.com or by checking out our blog at www.sinkintotheweird.com for additional content related to this episode. 

Thanks, as always, to the great power metal band SEVEN KINGDOMS for allowing us to use their song IN THE WALLS as our intro. 

Keep it weird, everyone!

It's the final episode of 2020! Herman and Billy put this abortive  year out of its misery by going to their happy place, namely the pages of Doctor Strange Vol. 2 #1 from 1974. Join us for a spell or two, and listen to us rant and rave about smoking caterpillars, silver-haired deviants, the ignominious use of the Cloak of Levitation, and so much more.

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.
