Non-Stop Comic Shop #07: Red October

 

For your seventh visit to the Non-Stop Comic Shop, the boys play some Russian Roulette with two comics that embody the spookiness of the Cold War! First up is famed DC Elseworlds tale Superman: Red Son, the ultimate “Everyone loves, and no one has read” comic, which Brendan has read, and he both loves and hates it. Starring: the CIA’s pal Jimmy Olsen! Benevolent murderer and Walkman inventor Lex Luthor! Imaginary prison architect Hal Jordan! Batman: the Bailey’s Irish Cream of superheroes! And Ukranian-born Superman, the goody two-shoes big blue boy scout who’s also complicit in state-sponsored genocides! After the break, Jordan reviews Avengers #36-37, the story about alien invaders Pixar and female prototype Ultron failing to account for Russian super-spy Black Widow’s ability to flagrantly defy the Comics Code Authority!

Jordan has been creating geeky Internet media for about 8 years now, starting with his late lamented video review show, Geek Criteek. He's since found his calling as a podcaster and video game live-streamer, hosting and editing over 100 episodes of each. An avid fan of D&D, MST3K, the PS4 and the MCU, he isn't sure which is his prouder achievement: that he framed one episode of the Non-Stop Comic Shop by singing the plot of Thor Ragnarok to the tune of a Steve Miller song, or that during that very song he was able to come up with a rhyme for "Devil's Anus".
