Hello and welcome to the Collected Edition – a comic book podcast where we explore celebrated story-arcs from comics and creators throughout the entirety of history.
Today on the program we will be discussing the The Legion of Superheroes, Archives Vol. 1, the collection of Silver Age wackiness and weirdness that is most definitely a product of a bygone era. It features boys and girls, lads and gals from the future with one power, one only! As well as Superboy, Supergirl and Superman at really random periods in their timelines because time is a mystery and time travel has no rules. On the program you will hear about such classic characters as Bouncing Boy, Matter Eating Lad and Shrinking Violet…and you will get to hear Brian say the immortal words: “I can’t get enough of disembodied brains.” So that’s a treat!
Also on the program we talk about the recent shakeups at DC and figure out what it all means and what the ramifications are to those changes. Spoilers: we don’t actually do that. Still we talk about it in our unique rambling way, again…its a treat.
So join us – Paul Matthew Carr and Brian K. Reese – for a lively and rambling and hopefully entertaining discussion on comics and comic related material.
