ré·su·mé [rez-oo-mey, rez-oo-mey]
noun
1. a summing up; summary.
2. a brief written account of personal, educational, and professional qualifications and experience, as that prepared by an applicant for a job.

In Comic Reader Résumé, I use Mike’s Amazing World of Comics to travel back through time via his virtual newsstand to the genesis point of my lifelong collecting of comics. From there, I can offer a “work history” of my fandom through my active purchasing of (relatively) new comic books beginning in January of 1982, when my interest in the medium went from sporadic and unformed to routine on through compulsive accumulation. To streamline the narrative and keep the subjects at least remotely contemporaneous, I will not generally be discussing what we call back issues: books bought long after their publication date. Sometimes, I will cover a book published on a given month that I picked up within a year or so that date, and I give myself an especially wide berth on this aspect in the first couple of “origins” episodes. We’ll get more rigidly on point as my memories crystallize and my “hobby” spirals out of control into the defining characteristic of my life (eventually outpacing squalor and competing neuroses.) It’s part personal biography, part industry history, and admittedly totally self-indulgent on my part.

This special “zero” episode covers comics-related material from my earliest years, before I was technically a collector, including runs of Strange Tales, Doctor Strange, Warlock, Tomb of Dracula, Power Records, Marvel Premiere, Captain Marvel, The Adventures of the Big Boy, and the single issues Howard the Duck #2, Green Lantern/Green Arrow #84, Stalker #1, Logan’s Run #1, Astonishing Tales #23, Famous First Edition #C-61, The Hands of Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu #46, Weird Worlds #8, Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk in “The Great Rodeo Robbery”, Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, and Spider-Woman in “The Mystery Of The Power Crown”, TSR-80 Computer Whiz Kids: The Computer Trap, Captain America #207, and Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty.

Spawn #17

by Grant Morrison & Greg Capullo

“Reflections” Part 2
Dedicated To: Ross Andru

Just as your new Spawn body is composed of psychoplasm and can change shape, so too can this gateway assume the forms of any thoughts and emotions imprinted upon it.

The soldier is ready. Our Anti-Spawn has been prepared for his first battle.

Just what were Wynn’s connections to alleged Youngblood covert operations and all those other sneaky little dirty-tricks outings nobody seems to want to report?

Pitt #5-8 (1994-1995)

by Dale Keown & Brian Hotton

So many questions… and the only one who can answer them… resides within the subconscious of an eight year old boy.

It’s the men who attacked the girl. Somebody removed their heads. The girl…?

You… my noseless friend, are coming with us! No if’s, and’s, or but’s… The powers that be, may just go lightly on this particular offense, that is proving you come along peacefully.

I serve NO one! I do not have TIME for this! The boy NEEDS me!

Explicit Content: Authorized Eyes Only

Agent Codenames: Old Dude; Diabolu Frank
Assignment: Father & Son Spy-Fi Podcast
Mission: An overview of the 1961-1969 British television series The Avengers starring Patrick Macnee as the dapper bowler’d spy John Steed and his various (mostly female) partners with an emphasis on Honor Blackman’s Cathy Gale (who we must never call by character name in the episode) and Emma Peel (unnamed actress.) While the episode is ostensibly centered on the second episode of the third series, “The Undertakers,” shake any pursuers through lengthy tangents on Beatles movies, Dr. Who, lowbrow sex comedies (“The Yakety Sax” maneuver) and long forgotten children’s daytime shows that cannot be located even by Google.
