It’s that spooky time of year, especially if you live in Detroit! Come on in and grab a scary book!
This year I have a real scary book for you: Marvel Masterworks: Atlas Era – Strange Tales Volume 5. It’s scary not because of all the horrific tales of monsters, mad scientists and damsels in distress, it has all that – it’s scary because it’s so bad!!! Thanks to Fredric Wertham and the new Comics Code Authority, Marvel and other publishers had to dumb down their comics for a more general and kid friendly audience. But don’t take my word for it, Dr. Michael J. Vassallo basically says so himself in his wonderful and detailed introduction.
So turn down the lights and curl up with a good podcast!
