Podcasts that Celebrate the Back Issue Bin. Also home to Mike's other assorted podcasts

Here's a link to a previous blog posting of mine showcasing the cover of another of my favorite comics, The Adventures of Jerry Lewis #105:  http://comicbookattic.libsyn.com/index.php?post_id=157238&comments=on
I got this book as a kid at a yard sale with some Superboy issues, a Land of the Giants issue, and an adaption of Disney's Jungle Book.  (Some of those may pop up in this feature some day.)  The thing that made this issue kinda weird when I read it was the guest appearance of Superman.  A "serious" character crossing into a silly comic was fun, unlike the bizarre raised-eyebrow crossover of Archie and the Punisher.

I've been trying to get back into reading some Marvels again.  Some listeners have made some good suggestions.  I'm still hopeful that the registration act will go away.  (Recent events in Spidey's book have made me want to stop all over again.  I don't want to read about a marriage disappearing.  I've had enough of that in real life.)  I've tried to look at Marvel's books as the fictional stories they are, with the viewpoint that the Initiative/ registration act story is far from over.  ...And this is so very true with Skrulls running around the MU.
