The Bronze Age of Horror Comics, Episode 5, Weird Mystery Tales 2, 1972 with Charlton Hero!
4278

Welcome back to the crypt, you creeps! This episode is a landmark of sorts, as it will showcase a comic from the DC Bronze Age library of anthology horror comics. Not only that, but it's #JackKirbymonth on the calendar (see @Relatively_Geek on Twitter) as well! Well, if it's a crazy Kirby comic, I have to drag my good pal Charlton Hero on the show for his unique perspectives on the more quirky side of the King! Weird Mystery Tales was a crazy title, but you can count on Kirby to bring the awesome! 

Stay tuned aft the discussion, as I found a creaky cool clip about Spirit World by Jack Kirby, from a great Youtube channel (Strange Brain Parts). If you want to leave any feedback, you can email the show at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or to me on Twitter @Billyd_licious. You can find Chris @Charlton_Heroand and definitely check out his blog, The Superhero Satellite! Thanks for listening!

Hey everybody, welcome to a special episode of the show!

3624
Hey everybody, it's time for another awesome episode about comics with another new, awesome guest! This time around, I lassoed Ranger Gord from the Prairie Justice podcast, to sit down and discuss his favorite hero, The Vigilante! This Bronze Age tale is very fun, and we have a last talking about it (the lead story will be covered on my other show, The Brave and the Bob! down the road).

The Bronze Age of Horror Comics Episode 2, The Monster of Frankenstein 1, 1973
3636
Welcome back, ghouls! It's time for another episode of the show! This time, I've lured MonsterMatt Patterson down to the crypt to talk about another great horror comic! The Monster of Frankenstein 1, 1973, was the third of the "big three" monsters to get its own series, but don't even think that means the material is third rate. With names like Gary Friedrich and Mike Ploog, you know you're in for a monstrously good time! The best part of this issue is that it mirrors the Mary Shelley novel, so it appeals to the classic readers as well as comic book fans.  If you'd like to contact the show, you can do so by email at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or on Twitter to me @Billyd_licious or on the FB page. You can find MonsterMatt on Twitter @1Monstermatt or at monster-matt.com (and check out his books on Amazon)! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/magsnmonsters/message

Rich Chamberlain is a blogger, podcaster, and all around good guy. I contacted him about talking movies, and especially some of our favorite made-for-tv movies, and we decided on this very interesting one from 1973.

Rock/Batman encounters! As usual, you can leave any feedback for the show through email at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or to me on Twitter @Billyd_licious or on the FB page.

3703
Hey everybody, this episode was a long time coming, as Dallan and I explain! The plan was to talk about this one together oh maybe two years ago! In all seriousness, we had a great time talking about this insane story, starring our favorite non-team, The Defenders!

4533
Hey everybody, here comes another madcap episode, this time with my good buddy Chris! He and I talk about this insane issue, Detective Comics 322, starring the Batman Genie! Yes, you read that correctly! Batman is a genie, and it's up to Robin, Batgirl, and Commissioner Gordon to solve this crazy caper. We also have some old guy talk where we have fun being critical about modern day comics, collecting, and then transition to talking about Chris's monumental efforts covering everything X-books current! Tune in and found out what he's up to, and give a listen to the huge back catalogue that he (and Reggie) accumulated over the last few years. It really is something that should be lauded.   As usual, you can send any feedback for the show through email at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or to me on Twitter @Billyd_licious or to the show's FB page.

Magazines and Monsters Episode 36, Curse of Frankenstein 1957, with Mike (Comics in the Golden Age podcast!)
5322
Hey everybody, I'm back with another episode of the show! I know I promised when I first got rolling with this podcast, that I'd be very Hammer Studios heavy on my episodes that feature films. Well, in 2022, I'm going to deliver on that promise, and starting right now! There's no better place to start than the beginning, and The Curse of Frankenstein from 1957, is where Hammer launched into the stratosphere. It also launched the careers of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee into superstar status! And my guest for this one is also a huge fan of Hammer, Mike, from the Comics in the Golden Age Podcast! The two of us went on for quite a stroll with this one as you can imagine, and did our best to give it its due.  As usual, you can reach out with any feedback for the show through email at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or to me on Twitter @Billyd_licious or on the Fb page. Mike is on Twitter @ComicsintheGA (definitely give him a follow).  *Quick note- the synopsis I used from IMDB was off slightly, as the hands the Good Baron procured were not that of a pianist, but a sculptor!  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/magsnmonsters/message

Hey everybody, it's time for another episode! This time around, I'm talking to Luke Jaconetti, from Earth Destruction Directive! If you're going to talk about Daikaiju, you've got to have him on. As you can see in the title, we're discussing Rodan from 1956. This is Luke's personal favorite, and possibly mine as well! I have the American version, which is slightly shorter than the Japanese version, so after we discuss this awesome film, we dive int some of the differences (thanks, Luke!). This film seems to always take a backseat Godzilla (Gojira), but make no mistake, it's right up there with that film in every aspect! As usual, you can leave any feedback for the show through email at Magazinesandmonsters@gmail.com or to me on Twitter @Billyd_licious or on the FB page.

8816

Hey everybody, I'm back and it's time for another film discussion! In this episode, I'l be joined by two of my favorite people, Herman Louw (Longbox of Darkness, Into the Weird) and Ryan Daly (Fire and Water Podcast Network)! The three of us like this movie quite a bit (although we are honest about its shortcomings during the discussion), and we couldn't wait to sit down in front of the mics and wax rhapsodic about it. (quick note- we referenced Midnight Mass from Netflix a few times, as Herm, Ryan, and Angela talked about it recently, click here to listen in!). We go through the cast and then jump in the deep end of the film, and follow it up with some discussion about the Stephen King novelette as well.

As usual, you can contact the show by email at MagazinesandMonsters@gmail.com or on the FB page. Ryan is on Twitter @RyanDaly01 and Herm is @darklongbox (I'm @Billyd_licious). Definitely check out Ryan on the Fire and Water Network, as he has a great backlog of shows dating back to 2016, and currently hosts Cheerscast and makes appearances on other shows as well. Herm is the cohost of Into the Weird, A World on Fire; an All-Star Squadron Podcast, Star Rocket Radio, and of course his own show The Longbox of Darkness. Thanks for listening and supporting the show!

*NOTE- there are some slight spoilers for Midnight Mass (Netflix) in this conversation, so if you haven't watched that yet but plan to, skip over that bit of the show (at the 1:50:12 mark, for about 30 seconds).

Hey everybody! Herman and I are back with another film discussion! Night of the Eagle (1962) is a good one from a smaller studio (as in not Hammer or Amicus), but really delivers the goods!

If you haven't seen this film yet, definitely give it a watch before listening in (spoilers ahoy, as usual). The film stars Peter Wyngarde, Janet Blair, Margaret Johnston, and Anthony Nicholls.
