Episode 49 – “D” Is for Lots of Things

See Dick edit. Edit, Dick, edit!

It’s a parliamentary welcome for the Young Turk himself, Mr. Dick Giordano, as he leads the Charlton Charge and we review one of his sterling editorial efforts with the continuing story of Deadman from Strange Adventures #213.

Whether you fancy some hatching, crosshatching, or even a moderate stippling, this journey through the miasma is guaranteed to shake out the brain monsters.

Now that’s what I call a freak out!

Episode 43 – South of the Border

¡Esta aqui, Esteban, mira!

Es hora de que el Parlamento Mexicano, as we tear down the wall between Boston and Cleveland (and possibly El Paso) to give you a veritable Deadman’s Chest of reviews, covering both Strange Adventures #’s 211 and 212.

Whether your preference is a touch of evil, or a liberal amount of Neal Adams, this one is guaranteed to straddle that border.

To sum up in a single word: Strategery.

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!

Episode 37 – You’re a Teen One, Mr. Ginch

…aaaaand a rook, in a pear treeeeee!

Egg up some nog and yule down a log, as the Parliament closes out the year in holiday style, reviewing a zany Bob Haney take on a Dickens classic in Teen Titans #13.

Guest appearances galore, as everyone from the Whos down in Whoville to that other fab foursome from across the pond drop by for some holiday cheer and a choice seat at the first annual parliamentary Christmas pageant.

And that, Stanley Dover, is what Christmas is all about!

Episode 33 – Like a Bird on the Wire

Ladies and Gentlemen, Teenies and Tinies! Come witness the world’s greatest aerialist… now that Boston Brand is gone.

The Parliament becomes a veritable aviary this week as they’re overrun by a host of eagles, sparrows, rooks, and drakes with reviews of Deadman’s ongoing hunt for the Hook in Strange Adventures #’s 208 and 209.

So put in your 12 cents, peel that sticker from your butt, and listen in to the greatest character little Marvin Wolfman has ever seen.

Now in full groovy color!

Episode 30 – That Daring Young Man

Behold… the creation of Adams! Neal Adams, that is.

It’s a passing of the torch as the Parliament tells a generational tale of two golden boys – one from the Silver Age and one from the Bronze – pausing along the way to review two more chapters of Deadman’s hunt for the Hook from Strange Adventures #’s 206 and 207.

All this, plus more Bob Hopes than you can swing a guitar at. That is to say… just the one.

Episode 29 – …But the Show Must Go On

The Silver Age of DC Magic has just ended… our story begins one minute later.

Join the Parliament as they rise from the grave to review Strange Adventures #205, ushering in the Bronze Age alongside the aerial acrobat known as Deadman, a man who nightly pitted his very life against the fates… until he lost.

A moment of silence as Carmine Infantino raises his fist.
