Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 83: DC Rebirth Week 9,Technical Difficulties and Comics

Jim and Eric decide that it’s time to streamline the podcast and get back to the meat and cheese of it all.  Is it a return to legacy?  Is it a meat and potatoes approach to things?  Is it a Rebirth?!?!  Actually, it’s none of those because they kind of work it out a bit while recording.  I guess we’ll have to see where it all leads.  They still get together and talk every book that came out this week and Jim has even seen the Suicide Squad movie…but doesn’t really talk about it.  This is a Comic Book Podcast!  Enjoy!

    Weird Comics History Podcast Ep. 5 – After the Code

    Weird Comics History Podcast Ep. 5 – After the Code

    It the last stop of Chris and Reggie’s five-part comic book history tour, as seen through the lens of the Comics Code Authority! First, we learn about the fates of our Comics Code triumvirate: Senator Estes Kefauver, Dr. Frederic Wertham, and publisher Bill Gaines. Then we take a quick trip around the world and see how the comics industry has developed in those countries that never imposed the same restrictions on content as America. Now we have come to the conclusion of the CCA, and Chris and Reggie offer their thoughts and opinions on the ramifications of a post-Code world. They look at new public pressures that affect publisher decisions today, and examine some of the sources that drive self-censorship in other entertainment industries today! There’s something to piss of everyone in this second half of episode five, you won’t want to miss it!

They look at increasing anti-comics public sentiment and the exact comic book that served as the tipping point and legitimized federal investigation. Then, they take you through all three days of the hearings, talking about each witness and their testimonies, while interjecting the usual silly commentary.
