Is there anywhere that I can send stuff to you via mail? It's a book of essays about the Legion of Super Heroes. Called "Super Teens From the Future" or something like that. Unless you have it already.

I don't think of it as a "desperate cry of sadness" more of a "exacerbating everyday work minutiae to get what I want and cleverly throwing in the excuse of my birthday for added effect". Haha. Seriously though girls, I really appreciate it. Best birthday present I got by far. You're welcome Super Future Fans!!! -Chad

I just found this podcast and I'm loving it. I'm so disappointed when I look at the sporadic releases of episodes though. I know I would be willing to donate to get a more regular release date. Is there a plan to make the releases more regular?

(Thanks CHAD!)
..and thanks for this new episode. I was so surprised and now I'm so happy!'re goofing on Jimmy Olsen covers? There's a lot more worst than that!
Also, fairly typical of many comics in that day: What happens on the cover is also repeated on page 1.
The only reason Jimmy's a celebrity is that he is "Superman's Friend." But yeah, he does have adventures similar to Superboy, Supergirl, and even Lois Lane.
"Spines out of his underwear!"
I wanna hear about the time he was Fat Boy, too! (See Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen, number 24)
What a ZOO! Turtles and Chickens! Awesome!
YES! Porcupine Pete was in the SUBS.
Tickled to death: Well, since people have died from laughing too much (heart rate too fast/asphyxiation), I suppose that one could die from tickling.
The Signal Watch: I think Jimmy made it himself. Well, according to Wikipedia. For this story, Superman gave him the watch, but in new continuity, Jimmy designed a signal device, that Superman turned into a watch based on Jimmy's design.
Haha...yeah, Superman doesn't care. It's TRUE!
Honorary Member of the LSH: I guess it's like an honorary doctorate.
Y'know, I don't think Jimmy had any previous adventures with the Legion. I think they made it up.
LOL! Loved the cackle laughter! Happy Belated Birthday, Chad!
P.S. Kristin's picture captures are AWESOME!

I love this show so much! I started reading the LOSH Showcase volume 1 recently, so I'm listening to all your episodes again. They are so much fun and make reading the comics more rewarding. Thanks for the show!

Recently re-hunted this podcast down to listen to at work. I loved listening to these the first time around ( though I was in a phase of never commenting on anything at the time). Thanks for making these hilarious walk-throughs of the treasure that is early Legion comics!

Great work! I miss you two.

Hope you're both doing well.

So sad to get to the last episode, especilly since the site is experiencing technical difficulties today of all days, I still have 2 episodes left but they won't play "choke" like a nightmare. Anyways you two gave me a legion obsession back in 2012 and now again in 2017 I've been on a legion rampage for months reading the silver age, 80's retroboot and threeboot stuff watched all the cartoons soon I'll reread rebels. Thanks for all the laughs hopefully you'll record an episode for the legion's 60th anniversary. You've probably been kidnapped to the 31st century and forced to carve legion statues for Braniac 5 or else your doing something all grown up and mature haha but either way thanks.
