Listen as Mike D. & Tommy bring back their feature, “5 THINGS”! This gives the boys an opportunity to discuss some Kirby goodness that may not warrant a full episode... and may teach the listener a thing or two (or five) about some deep Jack Kirby (or Kirby-related) stuff they may not know about! Plus, listener shout outs! It’s always a good time, kids.

The Jack Kirby Podcast: Episode #41 - Our Holiday Special

On Saturday, December 15th 2018, we went LIVE for episode 41! But unfortunate computer issues forced us to scrap that live show. :/

Soldiering on, your intrepid hosts Mike D. & Tommy decided to keep the holiday-themed episode plan by focusing on two Christmas-centric stories Jack worked on for DC Comics; ‘The Sandman in The Seal Men’s War on Santa Claus’ and ‘The Boy Commandos in A Break For Santa’.
Enjoy the show, folks! 

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!

The Jacked Kirby Podcast: Episode #40 - Our Worst Episode YET!

Welcome to Episode 40... our worst episode yet! Mike D. & Tommy were tired and ill prepared while trying to deliver an episode focusing on some random characters Jack worked on during his last days at DC Comics in the mid-‘70s. There are audible yawns, unrelated tangents, rapping, good hearty laughs, and shout outs! 

(Hey, they can’t all be winners, folks.)

The Jacked Kirby Podcast: Episode #39 - Stan Lee, R.I.P.

Stan Lee passed away on November 12th, 2018.

Excelsior!
