#27: "OF TWO WORLDS - Marvel/DC"



or "Brand Of Science, Brand Of Faith!"

In this episode, we introduce a brand new sub-series to the show: OF TWO WORLDS, where we compare and contrast two opposing concepts from the comics medium. In our first entry, we look at the twin pillars of four-color publishing, Marvel and DC, and the symbiotic way they've challenged each other, cribbed from each other, and drove each other to be better. Why does DC lend itself so well to such a diverse pool of talent? How have Marvel's founders influenced their storytelling to this day? And what is the terrible secret of Planet X... in space?!

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

#17: "TUBERMAN" (Challenge Of The Supertoons Part I)


or "The Strange Proposal of The Trevor-Darkseid Team!"

In part one of our new, six-part series on the history of animated adaptations, we get things rolling with DC's contributions to the field from 1941-1992. From the glory of the Fleischer shorts to the utter bafflement of the Superfriends, your hosts sift through one of American animation's greatest dry spells to solve the era's greatest mysteries: Why won't Superman stop moaning? What dark secret is Gleek hiding from the Wonder Twins? And how does it all tie back to the 2002 sports comedy Juwanna Mann?

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

#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!

#15 "Waiting For Twilight" (Dreams, Hoaxes, And Imaginary Tales Part IV)


or "A Gorilla In Lady Gotham's Court!"

In the finale of our series on the greatest comic book stories never told, we recount what may be the most influential comic event of the past thirty years... and not a single word of it was ever printed. Join The House of Mistakes as they detail what was once the most closely-guarded secret in the industry: Alan Moore's pitch for "Twilight Of The Superheroes", a company-wide crossover event that would have plunged the most unlikely hero of all into a dark future, where factions made up of DC's last remaining titans vie for control of a world passing them by. Sound familiar? You have no idea. How did this one pitch sow the seeds for Kingdom Come, Infinite Crisis, and-- somehow-- Game Of Thrones? Who was "Slipstream", and what modern form did she end up taking?  Why was Alan Moore obsessed with creating "the ultimate video game"? WHAT IS WRONG WITH DOLLMAN?!

#13: "Metropolis Restored" (Dreams, Hoaxes, And Imaginary Tales Part II)


or "IF THIS BE MY MISTRESS..."

In part two of our four-part series on the greatest comic book stories never told, we meet a caped crusader fighting for his life in The Great War, a wall-crawler in too deep with the wrong kind of lady, and a born-again 'bub with his heart in the right place (and the rest of him in ninja). Who IS The Huntsman, and how would he have been a game-changer for Image? How does The Dark Knight Returns tie into a coup d'etat that would have changed the comic book industry forever? And why on Earth won't Len Wein admit the TRUTH about Wolverine?!

#12: "The Old Gods And The New" (Dreams, Hoaxes, And Imaginary Tales Part I)


or "The Secret Dark Side of Captain Victory!"

In the first of our four-part series on the greatest comic book stories never told, we travel from the Silver Age to the Twitter Age, from Batman '89 to Superman 2000, from Grant Morrison's brightest days to Frank Miller's blackest nights. Just how many different All-Star books were in the works before the line died? What were Jack Kirby's original plans for his legendary run on Thor? What the HELL were they going to do to Wonder Woman in 2005?! And why must we LEAVE HIMMM?!

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

#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.

All and this more, in the link!

#3: "The Identity Of Secrets"



or "MILD MANNERS OF THE MASKED!"

Hidden away from the prying eyes of the world, underneath Podcast City's most exclusive nightclub, the unreal experts don their disguises and speak in cryptic tones, as they debate their most sensitive topic yet: secrets! Does the trope of duel identities still have a purpose to serve in today's comics, or is it just a golden age hold-over that's long outlived its usefulness? To what depths will Green Arrow sink to avoid a paternity test? And just who, exactly, ARE our mysterious hosts? To find out the answers, well, you'll just have to listen!

#2: "BIFF! BAM! POW! Superheroes on YOUR TV!"



or "WHERE WATCHES THE CHANNEL-SURFERS?!"

Lock yourself inside your Time Vault and toss that billy club into the trash, because the unreal experts are taking a look at the long, sordid history of comic books on TV. Do the early days of Saturday morning superheroes still have something to show us about these characters? What does the future hold now that shows like The Flash and Daredevil have elevated the genre beyond what anyone could have hoped for? Did somebody EVER get around to saving Tom Welling? To find out the answers, well, you'll just have to listen!
