Discuss: Monstervision and Joe Bob Briggs



Karen: While it wasn't around during the Bronze Age, TNT's Monstervision with host Joe Bob Briggs captured the Bronze Age spirit of TV horror hosts and B (or Z-) grade movies. Anybody a fan of this show?

Arc of Triumph? Champions 7-10


Karen: Today we have an arc with those lovable losers, The Champions. These issues featured writer Bill Mantlo with artist George Tuska on issue 7, and then Bob Hall on the remaining issues. This was where the book started to feel like it might have a chance, in my opinion. The Champs square off against a Soviet super-team that has kidnapped the Black Widow. The baddies include The Titanium Man, The Griffin (actually, not Soviet as far as I know), the mysterious Darkstar, and a new Crimson Dynamo, who was eventually revealed to be the son of Ivan, the Black Widow's -what was he? Her assistant? Advisor? Anyway, it also featured the Angel getting a new/old costume, as he shed the terrible red/yellow hippie togs for his old Neal Adams suit, only in red and white instead of blue and white. Ghost Rider and Hercules butt heads to add some spice to team relations. And Darkstar hangs around at the end, so she can wind up breaking Iceman's heart 7 issues later. What fun!
