Episode 22 – When Worlds Didn’t Collide

Who is Gardner F. Fox and why is he saying these terrible things to me?

Fire up some sand grains and put those cyrotubers on ice, as the Parliament kicks off Memorial Day with a slangariffic Silver Age Spectre-acular, reviewing Justice League of America #’s 46 and 47.

Whether it’s a gesture of peace from a Dark Knight sans cowl, or some hearty glad-handing by a zombified friend of the people, this one won’t rest until the immortal question is answered of why we can’t all get along.

Like peace, man! Real peace!

Episode 21 – The Night Is Mine Again…

Get with it, Frampton… you ain’t seen nothin’ ’til you seen The Spectre come alive!

Join the Parliament on a grim journey through the ages with reviews of More Fun Comics #’s 54 and 75 and Showcase #61 as the revenant ghost of Jim Corrigan confronts not only the devil himself, but a threat far worse… the unholy humor of Percival Popp, the Super-Cop.

What does the foghorn say? Dig this offer, and you’ll find out, delivered straight to your cell.

I’m looking at you, Leonard Tirado of Saratoga Springs, NY.

Episode 20 – The Edge of a New Frontier

The Parliament pauses in their Silver Age reviews to remember an artist who truly captured its spirit.

Join us as we look back on the career of Darwyn Cooke, with a magical interlude from The New Frontier #6 and his own “secret origin” from Solo #5.

Per the announcement on darwyncooke.blogspot.com, his family directs memorial donations to:

Episode 19 – He’s Heeeere!

Pssst… you there… closer… closer… BOO!

After about a ten episode tease, the Parliament finally meets the character that it took the combined efforts of Julius Schwartz, Alfred Harvey, Jules Feiffer, and little Michael Uslan to revive.

Lean in close to hear the whispered episode that Joe’s Podcast.com rated “More Spooky” with reviews of the Spectre’s Silver Age revival in Showcase #60 and his brutal Golden Age origin from More Fun Comics #’s 52 and 53.

Still not convinced? Well, get with it. No, seriously… get with it.

Episode 18 – In Which We Do the Mash, We Do the Monster Mash

So, the Parliament was working in the lab late one night… and this is what we came up with?

Allow us to strap you in for a electrifying trip through Monster-Mania as we explore its Universal roots, its Shocking revival and its ignoble incorporation into the lives of Jerry Lewis and Bob Hope.

All this, plus a ghostly addition to the household of Stanley and his Monster with reviews of The Fox and the Crow #’s 97 and 98.

When you get to our door, tell them them Super-Hip sent you.
