Sorry for not putting a podcast out last week but I was on vacation and forgot to record one before hand. I will try not to make the same mistake twice. Jon is on vacation this week so I had to do the podcast on my own this week so I hope you like it.
I think I may still be in vacation mode because I say that it is the 25th podcast at the start and this is wrong. It is actually the 26th podcast!
This week I dive into my memory banks and talk about a comic that is all but forgotten – Marshal Law. Here is a copy of the first issue that I bought:
Looking at that cover – why wouldn’t you want to buy it! I loved this comic and I go over the many ways why this is a great book in the podcast.
I forgot to mention it, but this character was actually optioned as a movie back in the 1990’s but it went into production hell and has all but been forgotten at this point.
I am nostalgic for Marshal Law and feel that this character was a product of it’s time – leading the way for the anti-hero and being politically incorrect in it’s language and art. I don’t think a book like this would be able to be published today. It would cause too many trigger warnings and microaggressions.
If you don’t mind being offended a little and want a very good murder mystery with a super hero twist, I highly recommend picking up the collected 6 issue limited series.
I hope you like the podcast and Jon will be back with me next week.
Your comics pal,
