Episode 41 – Something Old, Something New

Dear Editor: Are you guys hiring?

It’s time for a little bronze-age parli-mentoring, as Julius Schwartz makes a solemn vow to raise a better protégé than Mort Weisinger. Decide if he succeeded following a review of little Mike Friedrich’s freshman effort from The Spectre #3.

Elderly men in hotel rooms, Roman war helmets, California T-bones, and magenta thigh-highs: truly 1968 was a more innocent time… or my name isn’t:


Episode 40 – Requiem for a Teen

It’s 10 PM… do you know where your Titans are?

Why, they’re right here, listening to a Haney-rific Kashdan-tacular as the parliament offers reviews both of their animated adventures from The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, and their darker turn from Teen Titans #14.

So limbo lower and twist like a half-hulk, as the TT’s are forced to confront their doubts, their fears, and their little green onesies.

Holy Phantasmagoria!

Episode 39 – Thirteen Thrice, Three Times as Nice

It’s three, Three, THREE eps in one!

Read along as the parliament presents their very first done-in-one trade paperback review, cleverly combining episodes 13, 14, and 15 into a DC Digest Condensed presentation of Justice League of America: Zatanna’s Search.

Talking backward, backward talking, looking forward, and awkward looking (we’re talking about you, Warlock of Ys), it’s a walk down memory lane that still feels brand new.

And that’s how the trick is done!

Episode 38 – You Better Run

Cross out all that do not apply:

A (doctor/monk/circus aerialist) is (falsely accused/given months to live/murdered) and must travel (to a foreign land/town to town/in the bodies of others) in his endless search for (a cure/his brother/the real killer).

Join the parliament as they explore the literary, cinematic, and broadcast influences on our favorite raging revenant, Boston Brand, ranging from Jean Valjean to Edd “Kookie” Byrnes with everything in between, including a review of Thomas’s very first Deadman story from Strange Adventures #210.

Don’t walk… run!
