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!

Halloween Special 2019: Vampires Galore!

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!

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.
