Join Dennis and Johnny in this episode of Graphic Novel Explorers Club as they discuss the comic books Dennis purchased in a grab bag from a Dimple Records in our hometown of Sacramento.
In this episode the gang discusses the “exciting” adventure of the Avengers being stuck in an elevator; spending time with Jarvis as he tries to get coffee going for the Avengers; the time Beast tried to get Wonder Man a date; how much exposition there was in comic books back in the 80s; the time Ms. Marvel gave Scarlet Witch advice on whether or not she should get pregnant; the time readers were given the inside scoop on how the Avengers collated their forms; the marvelous junk sold at the back of old comic books; the artistic difference between the simplistic character drawings of the 80s versus the extremely muscular characters of the 90s; the discovery of a strange DC comic called Angel Love; and the storytelling and the art of these comic books from previous generations.
