This week we’re doing an all-new segment for you that we hope to continue on as a regular monthly special. Today we bring you the first edition of: Talking Comics Radio Theatre!

Thaaat’s right! The whole gang (Bobby, Steve, Bob and Stephanie) read you a couple of comics from the good ol’ days. They started things off with Whiz Comics #2 (and you’ll get a history lesson from Bob too!) and then work our way into Captain Marvel Adventures #18… the first appearance of Mary Marvel! HOLY MOLEY!

If you want to follow along with the comics as we read them (voice acting and all!), make sure you visit the awesome folks over at Comic Book Plus.

This is the link for Whiz Comics #2 and this is the link for Captain Marvel Adventures #18.

About The Author

Managing Editor, Community Manager and Podcast Co-Host

Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right? Stephanie is a purveyor of too many projects and outside of Talking Comics she’s done work for, Agents of Geek, Word of the Nerd, C&G Magazine, Dork Shelf, Misfortune Cookie (her personal blog for words and pictures) and more. She wrote a story for the anthology The Secret Loves of Geek Girls (coming in October 2016 from Dark Horse) and she also runs Toronto Geek Trivia in her home city. She can be found helping out at other “geek” community things around there.

    I have been listening to your podcast for a little while and liking it a lot. The comic reviews are very informative and fun. Your recent broadcast of Radio Theatre Presents… Captain Marvel! was an exceptionally fun one since being a long-time collector and fan of comics and old-time radio, I found the nostalgic-like treatment a great way to introduce new readers and refresh old readers, like me, who fondly remember the classic radio serials. I do hope you perform more of these, keep the voice acting, the sound effects and thrills of the old comics coming!

      We have plans to do another reading of a classic comic, and the smart money is on a Black Cat story from the Forties. In the meantime, you might want to check out The Minds Eye, which features most of our cast, and is a film noir/horror radio drama in the vein of “Lights Out!” or “Suspense”, and which is posted here at Talking Comics!

      Thanks for the kind words, by the way!
      ps) Here’s the link to The Mind’s Eye
