  1. Hey, I really enjoyed this, and now I want to go back and read this, as well as a lot of the series that were out back then, especially Bill Loebs’ run on Flash.

  2. Until I heard you guys talking it over, it never occurred to me; Invasion may be the least intrusive crossover ever. The nature of an alien invasion is such a cornerstone of super hero comics, the events could weave in and out of books without nary a blip to the flow of the crossover titles, but still strengthening the overall narrative.

    You’re off to a great start! I’m psyched to hear the rest!


  3. Siskoid & Bass – Great first episode and a fantastic idea for a finite podcast series! I love that house ad, and the series itself was lots of fun! Todd McFarlane and Bart Sears in their prime! Good stuff!

    Looking forward to more episodes!! And keep playing the theme song you sung on future episodes!!

  4. Just catching up, I enjoyed the debut loads. You know, it never struck me that the Invasion poster might be racist, I suppose if I’d seen it in the Forties, when Asians were depicted in a truly vile, inhumane manner – buck teeth, bright yellow skin – I may have made the connection. Do you think DC were consciously going for this? I can’t believe they’d be that insensitive, the Dominators were an established space race.

    1. Today, we’re trained to be a lot more sensitive, but in 1988, we were pretty thoughtless when it came to this kind of thing. The propaganda poster was probably used as a wink to WWII, without real concern given to the racist connotations these might still carry.
