1 day ago
Salutations, noble comic book savages! In this episode, our intrepid explorers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) plumb the depths of the dark interior of the African continent when they read Jungle Comics #2, published by Fiction House in 1940! They go through all nine(!) stories within the issues, providing creator bios and background information where applicable, with a special emphasis on the ninth story–the first appearance of the first female superhero, Fantomah by Fletcher Hanks! Then, after a break, the stalwart adventurers detail the life of Fantomah, and give a brief history of Fiction House, a seminal Golden Age comics publisher. You’ll like the jungle so much, you’ll never want to go back to Greystoke!

If you like comics this is the podcast for you. If you like comix this is the podcast for you. Chris and Reggie are a great team and fun to listen to. They discuss all kinds of comics from all eras. They've done a series of episodes on under ground comics. They've done a series on the history of the comics code authority. They've talked about some of the greatest writers and artists. They even talk about comics you may never heard of.
Every episode is very entertaining and engaging. Highly recommended!

My fave comics podcast to listen to
These guys not only know their comics, but the show is always well produced, well researched and often very funny. The latest episode on the atrocious "Jim Nastics #1" was a real knee-slapper. I always enjoy that they provide some background on the creators and characters involved, plus plenty of other background info relating to the comics they discuss.
