May 7, 2021

This week Into The Weird Presents Billy and Herm's LOST HALLOWEEN, a forgotten episode recorded in an October long since past, but that has now been revived like a patchwork monster on a slab to celebrate our halfway mark to Halloween 2021. 

Listen along as we talk GIANT SIZE DRACULA #4 and WEREWOLF BY NIGHT #42, in addition to recommending some books courtesy of our Recommendations of Ragaddor segment. 

Please feel free to email us at sinkintotheweird@gmail.com

Billy and Herman are back with another show, and this time we're riding the coattails of Disney Plus' WANDAVISION. That's right, it's all about Vision and his ladylove The Scarlet Witch! We talk one of Billy's most cherished Avengers issues featuring the lovebirds, and Herman runs down his favorite Vision moments of the last 5 decades. We also ascribe a BRONZE AGE ALTER EGO to Mr. Kyle Benning from the KSCGSF Podcast. Follow Kyle on twitter @KyleBenning_Art!

All this and much more!

Into The Weird CROSSOVER Special - Acts of Vengeance!

March 22, 2021

Welcome to our very first Weird CROSSOVER Special, where Billy and Herm dissect Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #11-13 (1989-90) as a part of the Merry Marvel MARCHing Society Podcast Crossover.

Listen along with us and bear witness to some bizarre battles between Stephen Strange and foes with delusions of grandeur (Hobgoblin), foes with a serious case of Basorexia (Enchantress), and misogynist kidnappers (Arkon the Not-So-Magnificent). Thrill at the return of the beauteous Clea, and cringe at Stephen's appearance on a talk show. All this and much more are included in this bonus special. You dare not miss it!

All this, plus Shoptalk, the Recommendations of Raggador, and our Allies of Agamotto Segments. You dare not miss it!

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!
