Traders Of The Lost Arcs - Cap-Wolf (#1)

Not a hoax! Not a dream! Dedicated comics coverage has returned to Place To Be Nation Pop at long last! Welcome to Traders of the Lost Arcs, a loving look back on the comics we love. In our inaugural episode, Tim Capel leads Shawn Kidd, Scott Shifflett, and Andy Atherton through the one that started it all: an infamous 1992 biweekly saga known as "Man & Wolf." Doesn't ring a bell? Perhaps you're familiar with the story by its more colloquial association - Cap-Wolf! In a nutshell, a simple missing persons case sees Captain America transformed into a werewolf! With guest stars galore, including Wolverine, Cable, and basically every canine-adjacent character in the whole damned Marvel Universe. PLUS: palace intrigue with Diamondback and Crossbones (aka "What the hell is a back-up story?"), Cap's cast of missing friends, the protracted adventures of D-Man and Bernie in the park, and the INSANE origins of Dr. Druid!

 

Far from a mere back-issue review, we analyze not only the story itself, but the context in which it was published. How exciting was it being a comics fan in 1992? What else was on the spinner rack at the same time? WHY did this see print? Plus, we heap praise on the writing talents of the late Mark Gruenwald and have... questions about those of artist Rik Levins. Enjoy this first time outing wherein Andy learns comics, Shiff exudes patience, and Shawn changes his mind! It's a wild kick-off to our monthly comics adventures!

 

On this episode: Captain America vol. 1 #402-408. Read along with us via Marvel Unlimited at https://www.marvel.com/comics/series/1996/captain_america_1968_-_1996.

Making Mt. Rushmore #37 - Super NES Games & Sega Genesis Games

In the thirty-seventh episode of Making Mt. Rushmore, panelist Johnnie Sea joins moderator/panelist Steve Riddle to discuss which Super NES Games deserve a place on their respective lists. Is Super Mario World a no-brainer? What about Super Metroid? Does Donkey Kong Country grab a spot? Does Earthbound or The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past deserve a place? After that, they discuss which Sega Genesis Games will be part of that grouping. Can you argue that Sonic The Hedgehog 2 shouldn’t get a spot? Will Toejam And Earl be included? Is NHL ‘94 in the conversation? What about Street Of Rage 2 & Shadow Dancer: The Legend Of Shinobi?

It Was a Thing on TV: Episodes 321 & 322 - The Starland Vocal Band Show/The McLean Stevenson Show

This week on It Was a Thing on TV we talk about one hit wonders and the patron saint of this podcast.

First, it's listener request time once again!  This time, we look at a 1977 summer replacement variety show with the band behind one of 1976's biggest songs.  The Starland Vocal Band Show may have centered around a one-hit wonder, but it starred some future star power.

Then, it's been a while since we have talked about the patron saint of this podcast.  McLean's birthday is coming soon, so we felt the time was appropriate to talk about his first series after he left M*A*S*H.  To be fair, you can't fully blame McLean for this show's downfall.
