Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 186

January 10, 2019

This week out, we're talking about JLA 186, featuring the Shaggy Man!  No, not the Reggae-infused Shaggy... Nor an activity that Austin Powers loves...  That hairy android is back, and apparently the Russians are responsible for this!  See Batman get one of his coolest moments in comics!  Witness Ralph Dibny make a truly disgusting sandwich!  Ogle at seeing kinda-sorta more of Black Canary than you would normally EVER see!  All this, plus a rather historic cover date month's worth of discussion!  So, don't wait for solar radiations and the Aurora Borealis to thaw out your keyboard!  By all means, feel free to leave feedback at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  And as ever, thanks for your support and for your time!


Justice’s First Dawn: Detective Comics 463-468

December 31, 2018

Great... Now Batman is taking over THIS podcast TOO?!?  Actually, as a late Christmas gift to friend of the show, John Moret, we're talking about a fun non-official Justice League of America adventure that was told mostly as backups in the first five issues of the "Detective Comics" section I'm talking about, and cumulates in one entire issue for the ending!

So, what threat serves to unify the League in another book?  Would you believe... The debuting Calculator?  (Just don't type out 8008 on his chest piece...)  With artwork by Mike Grell, Ernie Chan and the debuting Marshall Rogers, the inks of Terry Austin, and the fun writing of Bob "Answer Man" Rozakis, how can you go wrong?!?

Now if you would please operate your own special chest key to activate your powers to send some email my way!  The best place to send it would be justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com, and thanks as always for your time and enjoyment!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 109

December 18, 2018

A Justice League of America member... quitting?!?  Dr. Bruce Gordon's wicked side... appearing?!?  The unacknowledged bro-mance of comics being recognized... in this issue?!?  All these surprises await you in this episode's coverage of "Justice League of America" 109!  Also, other comicy adventures, and your listener feedback!  So don't wait until after the Crisis, and you get one of those anger-feeding black gems to be enticed to do so!  Please let your thoughts be known with sending feedback to justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  As always, thanks for your time!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 152

December 11, 2018

Had enough Christmas-ish stories, yet?  Don't fret, because JLA 152 is mostly a TENUOUS Christmas tale!  We get many series of shocking events in this issue!  Such instances include: Red Tornado, being the star of an issue!  Superman, acting like an ABSOLUTE jerk!  Major Macabre, proving how forgettable a DC character he truly is!  

So don't wait for those alien magi to drop their mystical gifts to grant you the urge to write some feedback!  Just utilize some of that seasonal inspiration to send me a correspondence to justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  And as always, thanks for your time and hopeful enjoyment!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 110

December 4, 2018

What's this? An episode shorter than 2 hours?  Only 1 issue to cover?  This IS a Christmas miracle!  Join me as I tackle a Yuletide tale of mysterious murders to solve in JLA 110, a return of an infamous Justice League villain, and... sadly... the return of a supposed "Justice League Member".  But on the bright side, John Stewart fills in as this issue's Green Lantern, and the story itself is pretty fun!

So, want to leave some early presents for the show as a Christmas season surprise? Then by all means leave some feedback to justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com, and thanks again for your continued support!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 120 and 121

November 27, 2018

We're... going to the chapel... and we're... gonna get marrrrried…  At least, we WERE before Kanjar Ro returned to menace Adam Strange and the Justice League of America!  In this episode, covering JLA issues 120 and 121, we see such wonders as Green Arrow acting like a jerk... as normal, Black Canary showing what a master strategist she is, and the Atom braving being crammed into Batman's boot!  All this, plus the usual assortment of fun and games coming your way!  So don't wait until you're changed into some random black sphere to be stored in Kanjar's cave!  Feel free to leave some feedback to justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com, and thanks as always for your time!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 183, 184, 185

November 20, 2018

There's 3 hours of content, buttloads of monthly coverages, and THREE WHOLE ISSUES to talk about!  So let's keep this part simple!  The Justice League!  The Justice Society!  The New Gods!  The passing of Dick Dillin, and the entrance of George Perez!  That about sums it up!

And if your "Mother Box" has a solid swipe feature on text entries, then please use it to write some feedback to justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  And as always, thanks and hope you enjoy!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 89 and DC Super-Stars 10

November 5, 2018

Whether you seek deadly dreams of a disgruntled writer, seeking the romance of Black Canary, or a spirited baseball game between the heroes and villains of the DC Universe, this episode has ALL of those bases covered!  Our JLA issue is a nightmarish kaleidoscope of bizarre fantasies, with Black Canary and Green Arrow caught in the middle!  Our special issue features a mixture of DC characters playing that great American pastime!  And in both issues, we see that Ollie Queen is unilaterally a jerk to Black Canary!  All this, plus your listener feedback!  Should that typewriter cause you to envision yourself as Clark Kent, then by all means send those journalistic feedback pieces to justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  And as always, thank you for your time!


Justice’s First Dawn: Justice League of America 128 and 129

October 29, 2018

Welcome Wonder Woman back to the team!  She's now a certified super heroine, again!  But does she rejoin just in time for the JLA to call it quits, because of being scared witless of dying?!?  Join me in a discussion of issues 128 and 129 of "Justice League of America"!

Hear Green Arrow's legitimate complaint about the setbacks of being a superhero!  See a hidden Power Battery show up in a car's exhaust!  Tremble at the introduction of a villain who shares the same name as a major Green Lantern threat... but in these books, is little more than an alien junkie!

All this, plus a buttload of other books, and your listener feedback!  Speaking of which, unless you're under the influence of D-Fear gas, by all means send over some letters to justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com!  And thanks, as always, for your time!


Justice’s First Dawn: Underworld Unleashed- Extreme Justice 10 and 11

October 22, 2018

I'm back from an Anniversary trip, and ready to talk some Justice League!  Wait...  That's right, this is my crossover episode with #BestEventEver for October, discussing the "Underworld Unleashed" event!  Cool!  What's on the buffet spread?  ... Wait, what's this brown and smelly pile?  "Extreme Justice" is the name of this dish?  Oh well... Since no one else is looking at it...

Witness the miracle of birth with a somewhat imaginary baby, gag at some of the worst excesses of 90's artwork, and hopefully agree that Firestorm is these issue's Snapper Carr!  All this, plus a glimpse into what my reading priorities were in the 1995 and 1996 period!

So if you don't want to wait until the Predator possesses you to do so, by all means leave me some feedback at justicesfirstdawning@gmail.com.  And even in this mess of an episode, thanks for listening!
