episode 22 - Adventure Comics 301

Hi again! Stronger than ever, we return! This time with the Secret Origin of Bouncing Boy!! A fan favorite even if he's one of our least favorites. Also in this issue is a story about Clark Kent and Lex Luthor... as cell-mates. I shit you not. Some really nice art is in that too, I might do a side-post about it some time. This is also a tryout issue and the first appearance of Storm Boy!

And yes, it's "starscream", not "starscreamer". We forgot to talk about it, but we included a scan of the amazing letters column from this issue that features the editor picking on a fat child (mixed messages much??) and someone whining that Bizarros rock harder than Legion. I will find you, Wendell Evans of Boston Mass. I will find you and fight you.

Writer: Jerry Siegel
Penciller: John Forte

Music used in the intro/outro is sugarcult - bouncing off the walls

episode 21 - Superboy 100

Hey, Super Future Listeners! Another exciting adventure! Except not really! Hahaha, horrible Pete Ross issue! The sound on this episode sucks, the management sincerely apologizes. I have no idea what happened there, I'm actually worried I destroyed the mic somehow with my brutish hands. We're not supposed to sound like shrieking horrors in the night. In this episode, listen as we're attacked by massive insects and car sounds!


Editor: Mort Weisinger

Music used in the intro/outro is The Carpenters - (They Long to Be) Close to You

As a bonus, here's a link to a summary of Pete's first appearance, I didn't want to clutter up our Legion purity with a Pete Ross post so I popped it onto my blog.

this is the same panel with the actual text. I was going to post comparable "beware child molester" images but...they upset me and I don't want to post them!!
