In the first part of this episode, Wendi and Chris "Zod" Smits (writer, publisher "Aw Yeah Comics") discuss the history and enduring relevance of America's greatest superhero. It's a passionate discourse of ideals vs. relatability, his greatest storylines and whether or not Supes has a punk rock ethos!

Next up..... it's a Byrd, it's a plane... it's Megan Byrd ("Comic Book Candy" and Lauren Burke ("PI Jane", "I'm not Omnigirl") to break down Lois Lane's craziest storylines from the late 60s and 70s! Revisit the trendy fashions, mismanaged social issues and marriage obsession of "Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane".

Wendi celebrates her 50th episode with Robert E. Howard scholar, Mark Finn. Mark has written forewords to "Conan the Barbarian" comic collections and a biography of Howard, as well as being an accomplished novelist and comic writer himself. We talk all things barbarian (like "Beastmaster" and Grace Jones) as well as diverging on many crazy tangents and his new turn fleshing out the universe of a comic for the popular game "Fruit Ninja". He's a lot of fun, very Texan and an enjoyable listen!
