  1. Great show guys! My hatred for Marvel Cosmic knows no bounds. However after reading a batch of Starlin stuff glowing reviews on Longbox Graveyard..and on this podcast..I appreciate the cosmic genre.

    I may be in the minority here but pre Guardians Of The Galaxy movie, that franchise, and Marvel cosmic titles in general were poor. Titles like Warlock, Guardians (original cast) and Inhumans were filled with Jesus Christ Superstar gaga. Jim Starlins giant acid trip.

    I fear however that Guardians has prolonged the life span of a very crappy corner of the Marvel Universe. I will admit..the movie presented Cosmic in a way that drew me in.

    One major fault of 90s Marvel cosmic was the art or Ron Lim. I was never a fan of his work as all his characters all looked the same.

    I digress..loving the show though..onwards to episode 3!


  2. All three of us are lovers of Jim Starlin, so his name is chanted often hereabouts. Marvel’s cosmic material of the 60s and 70s is golden in many people’s eyes, but the 80s & 90s managed to tarnish that sector considerably (and Starlin contributed to that, too.) Silver Surfer specifically was very successful, but through its emphasis of Thanos, Galactus, and the Heralds over the rest of the celestial beings, and the book simply wearing out its characters/concepts, the lot appeared rather shabby by the aughts. Ron Lim is one of those guys I like despite fully appreciating others criticisms (just as I find myself disliking Jim Lee despite his excessive praise,) and boy did Lim draw cosmic types a lot. As for Jesus Christ Superstar, that’s Roy Thomas’ Adam Warlock in a nutshell, which is why his dark subversion in the Starlin series was so sweet.
