ONE AND DONE - "HEARTBEAT"



In the latest One And Done, we welcome to the show comedian and podcaster Adam Avitable to talk about one of his favorite stand-alone stories, The Flash #163, "Heartbeat"! Join us as we cover how this issue dangles perilously between the two most ground-breaking runs on the character, how it embodied the end of an era for comics storytelling as we knew it, how it might just be the best introduction to The Flash you could ever offer a new reader, and how to defeat Batman using only a fire escape, an alarm clock, and some dirty rags.

Off The Panel Classic - Ultimate Spider-Man



In this reprint of a classic OPP episode, Aristo' Alex and Jam' James turn back the clock to the year 2000, when MTV's irrelevance was still relevant, America could not care less about the electoral process, and Spider-Man was being rebooted for what was certainly going to be the only time. What began as a last-ditch effort from a dying company to reach a new audience would soon become a cultural touchstone for an entire generation of comics fans, and for over 100 issues Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley crafted a run whose highs, lows, and filler issues would shape the medium for years to come. Listen as our past selves share their own experiences with the book that helped cement their love of comics, and talk about that time Gwen Stacy became Carnage.

Off The Panel Classic - Wolverine: Origin


In this reprint of a classic OPP episode, The Men Who Would Be Unreal unite for the very first time to share their love for one of the most underrated stories to come out of modern Marvel: Paul Jenkins', Andy Kubert's, and Richard Isanove's "Origin". From his humble beginnings playing hoop and stick, to his disturbing transformation into the animal he was destined to become, your hosts explore the tragic first years of  Wolverine, and laugh at the very concept of Marvel ever redoing old event comics. Ha ha, we were so young.

#16: "Forgotten, But Not Gone"


or "TERROR Of The Redundant-Flash!"

The medium of comics is filled with countless characters who have stood the test of time... that doesn't mean all of them should have. On this month's episode, the Unreal Experts count down the useless, the dated, the repetitive, the heroes, villains, and supporting cast who do not deserve to be hated, but simply to be forgotten-- except Steve Trevor. Which hunter should have stayed in the jungle? What is the terrifying secret of The Composite Alfred? And which one-man franchise has earned billions of dollars and the hearts of a generation... despite having no reason to exist?

To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!

#9: "Videoman, No! The Bright Side of Superhero Games"


or "Respawn, harlequin, said the 8-Bit Man!"

Prepare yourself for a next-generation multimedia event™! In this episode, the unreal experts rock out to SNES symphonies as they look at the most high-rated entries in a low-rated genre: the comic book game. How has the arc of the superhero game mirrored the arc of the entire industry? Why did anyone ever think you'd want to play Cyclops? And which is more magical: mall arcades, or pizza arcades? To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!

EDITOR'S NOTE: We've got something special planned for March, but stay tuned for part two of this series in April, where we'll look at some of the less-impressive entries in the history of game adaptations. Oh god, how is the Hulk supposed to sneak past these guards...

#8 "We MUST, Robin: The Fashionably Lame Costumes of Comics"


or "The Boob Window At The Gates Of Always!"

From fishnets to head-fins, bandoleers to face-socks, gloves that stretch to the armpits to collars that climb to the heavens, superhero costumes have seen their share of highs and lows. Join Aristocratic Alex, Jammin' James, and Maniacal Mike as they plumb the depths of four color fashion in a discussion of their favorite looks, why certain costumes have stuck around for so long, the subjectivity of a good design, and what the hell is even going on with Gambit's stupid head.
