By Crom, Mitra, and the slimy scales of Set! It's another episode of INTO THE WEIRD, the show chronicling the mighty-thewed madness of Bronze Age Marvel Comics.

 

This week Billy and Herman sharpen their broadswords and quaff their ale while simultaneously discussing Marvel's CONAN THE BARBARIAN #45 and KULL THE CONQUEROR #8. We follow these titanic feats with our SHOPTALK and RECOMMENDATIONS OF RAGGADOR segments, as well as ascribing a new Bronze Age Alter Ego to listener and podcaster supreme SEAN ROSS. A good time is had by all! Join us, and see our enemies flee before us and hear the lamentation of their significant others!

This week Billy and Herman offer up a List-O-Mania episode, where we count down our Top 5 most bizarre Bronze Age Villains. The rest of our regular segments are on hold this week because of time constraints during August, when vacations lured us away from our mics. But never fear! We're back and ready to launch into September. So join us for another madcap journey...into the WEIRD.

It's a Doctor Strange DOUBLE FEATURE as Billy and Herman discuss Marvel Premiere issues 5 and 6 from 1972, when the Bronze Age of Comics was still a nice shiny sheen of, well...bronze. Join us as we delve deep into Lovecraftian territory with Stephen and his cohorts Wong & Clea as they haphazardly plunge ever deeper...INTO THE WEIRD.

This ep is all about Doctor Strange in MARVEL FEATURE #4 (Sept. '72). This time around Herman is joined by Billy D from the blog Magazines & Monsters to discuss Marvel Comics' blatant rip-off of H.P. Lovecraft's Shadow Over Innsmouth with a version they decided to call "The Spawn of Sligguth!" Catchy, no?
