Current Geek 18: “Mommy, why are there chunks in my Orange Juice?”

Join Tom and I as we talk about a book called, “1000 Comic Books You Must Read“, which samples deeply from the superhero pantheon, showcasing key issues from the storylines of Batman, Spider-Man and other stars of the DC and Marvel Comics universes.

But the new book also yields smaller, weirder pleasures, as author Tony Isabella pays homage to dozens of pulp characters who flickered for only a few pages before disappearing from view. They include characters like Zot, the Creature That Devoured Detroit, E-Man, Werewolf by Night, Mister Miracle, Plastic Man, Hangman, Normal Man, Radioactive Man, Captain Atom, Doctor Solar, Metamorpho, Tigre Were-Woman, Badger, Grottu King of the Insects, Shaggs the Living Sphinx, Airwave and Magnus Robot Fighter.

And, we get a great reader submission about being the ultimate Bruce fan. šŸ™‚
