Episode 33: The Sword of Thrones!

Welcome back once again, true believers....

I bring to you Episode 33: The Sword of Thrones!

First up, I visit my wife in her studio (formerly our piano room) and for about 2 hours, I talk to her about one of her favorite shows on tv... Game Of Thrones!  Listen as we discuss the characters the death and the sex.  And we also talk about the book.
Be forewarned, Spoilers abound.



And you can check her out at Moss Creations

And a couple of her designs...



Then at 2 hours and 20 minutes we have "What's In Head's Longbox?", where we continue our Atom coverage with his next appearance... The Sword of Atom Special 3

Comments:
This issue is the first appearance of the post-Crisis Atom. Though his adventures appear to continue from pre-Crisis continuity, the post-Crisis Atom is considered to be entirely independent from his Earth-1 counterpart.

And then at two hours and fifty nine minutes, I close out the show with: "Where’s Head Going?"

This episode, I look at the podcast: Now Playing Podcast.


And still no final song.  Still debating on whether I want to do that at this point.  What do you guys think?  Let me know....  Also if you're in a band and would like your song played on the show, feel free to get in touch with me (music@HeadSpeaks.com)

Episode 32: The Atom's Homecoming Crisis!

Welcome back true believers....

I know.... I had my third anniversary episode and then I disappear for a couple of months.  Sorry about that.  I'm hoping I've got this issue sorted out and I can get back to a regular release.

But enough with that...  I now bring you Episode 32: The Atom's Homecoming Crisis!

First up on we look at Geekin' With Head, I take a look at DC and their various reboots.  They started it with The Crisis on Infinite Earths.  Then they had Zero Hour as the Crisis didn't fix their problems (due to issues I talk about this episode).  Then more recently they had Flashpoint which rebooted in to the New 52.  And most recently they had Rebirth.  Why so many?  What happened?

This episode I talk about that and also what I would do if I was placed in charge of DC Comics with Head's DC Rebirth.

Then we have "What's In Head's Longbox?", where we continue our Atom coverage with his next appearance... The Crisis on Infinite Earths.
The Atom appears in issues 5,8,9 and 10 (According to Mike's Amazing World of Comics).

Not one of the covers of the comics, but a really cool poster for Crisis.  Use to have this on my wall at work at one point.

Writer: Marv Wolfman
Penciller: George Perez
Inker: Jerry Ordway
Letterer: John Costanza
Colorist: Anthony Tollin (Carl Gafford issue 10)

Reprinted In:
Crisis on Infinite Earths HC (1999)
Crisis on Infinite Earths TPB (2001)
Crisis on Infinite Earths:The Absolute Edition HC (2006)

I only briefly touch on the actual story of The Crisis.  During this episode I mention a couple of other places to learn more about The Crisis on Infinite Earths:

Interdisciplinary Comics Studies

Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

And Michael Bailey's and Scott Gardner's Tales of the Justice Society.  As I say Michael and Scott only are up to issue 4 at this point, as they've had to taken a hiatus, but I'm hoping they return soon as I'm enjoying it.


Then I go to At The Movies With Head.  This month I give an overview and my thoughts the newest Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Listen in and see if I liked it or not....

I close out the show with: "Where’s Head Going?"

This episode, I look at the podcast: Hollywood Babble On hosted by Ralph Garman and Kevin Smith.

And once again, this month I don't play a final song.  Still debating on whether I want to do that at this point.

But if you're in a band and would like your song played on the show, feel free to get in touch with me (music@HeadSpeaks.com)
