Thunder Gods, Thunderbolts and Thrill Power! With Al Ewing

 

Universes and Issues Explored: 

  1. Earth 869371  – The Mighty Thor 371-372

  2. Earth 912177 – Dark Avengers Vol 2 177-182

Notes:

  • Zaniac first showed up in Thor 319.  My bad.
  • Al Ewing’s Dredd story in year one is Wear Iron which is in this collection.
  • We reached out to Jeff Parker about if he was a Dredd fan, the villains and more and he was great enough to reply.

Definitely a 2000 AD fan, and of course it was a chance to tell a ‘last Judge Dredd’ story. It worked in with the way I portrayed Luke in the series, always put-upon, always with the weight of the world on his shoulders. Boss Cage knows the whole world is messed up and beyond saving, he just wants it to have never happened. A good chance to do something with post apocalypse worlds. I remember Kev telling me about concept stuff for the Dredd movie and how everyone quickly realized you couldn’t turn a motorcycle wheel that was that wide. Of course, ours was cobbled together out of Marvel characters in that alt future scenario, so it’s not just giant tires, they’re flaming with Ghost Rider hellfire.

  • You can follow Al Ewing on Twitter and check out Judge Dredd to learn the magic of the THRILL POWER!

We will be back Friday with him talking Contest of Champions!

Episode 10: The Power of Shazams!

Luke and Devin get all into Captain Marvel and Shazam and confuse those two names a few times, but there are lots of good comics as they explore a few new worlds that top Trials of the Multiverse.

Ibac – IBAC has his own Shazam style powers but when he says his name he returns to his non-super form, Stanley “Stinky” Printwhistle. His powers are from Lucifer and he has the powers of Ivan the Terrible, Cesare Borgia, Attila the Hun and Caligula which is pretty great you guys.
