KomicsKast 98 - January 1962 - Fantastic Four 2, and Tales to Astonish 27

This time out, due to a major cold, I decide NOT to highlight what's going on in the rest of the comics universes, but jump right into our recaps and comments regarding the two superhero books that Marvel put out in January 1961, Fantastic Four 2, and Tales to Astonish 27 (the latter has only a marginal superhero connection, but you'll hear all about that!)

I'm joined by my good friends Lyle Tucker and Van Reid, and even if no one listening enjoys this, I can tell you, I DID!

KomicsKast #97 - December 1961 - Turok, Sea Devils, Superman Annual

Since Marvel didn't publish any superhero titles cover dated December 1961, it's given me the chance to take a look at the comics of other publishers from that month.

Neither of the books is a superhero book either, not that there weren't some being published, but both Turok Son of Stone 26 and Sea Devils 2 have a bit of Sci Fi, fantasy to them.

I also talk a bit about a comic that's very special to me, and why: Superman Annual 3.

I want to thank my friend Stan Jones for loaning me the Turok comic.

KomicsKast #96 - November 1961

After a four month hiatus, KomicsKast is back with the first of what we hope will be many, breakdowns of comics by month. While the focus is on Marvel, we'll be talking about comics from many different companies. This time it's November 1961, the month Fantastic Four #1 came out (cover date).

And not only are we back with a new BOP, but Aaron Macom joins us live from the Mid Ohio Con (okay, he's actually in his car at the Mid Ohio Con, but give us a break!).

After Aaron gets done (and if you know Aaron, you'll know why we had to wait until he was done!) Jon, Stephen, and I talk about our BOP's (which you may recall, stands for Bottom of the Pile or the thing that we saved for last - the best).
