CM Podcast 58 – Marvel Swimsuit Specials

It’s the summer time!  The weather starts getting hotter and that makes you want to drive to the beach and strip down to your swimsuit and take a long, cool dip in the water.

This also reminded me that at one point in time (the early 90s), Marvel decided to put out an annual specialty magazine called The Marvel Illustrated Swimsuit Special (later to be changed to the Marvel Swimsuit Special for legal reasons).

Jon and I are not sure why or how Marvel came to the decision to put this special out for 5 years in a row (1991 – 1995) but it lead to some great artwork and laughs (intended or unintended).

Here are a few visual aids to help you through this podcast:

We talk about all the above artwork and more in the podcast and then we theorize what would happen if Marvel were to put out a Swimsuit Special in 2016.

Lots of fun and jokes in this one, folks.  We hope you have a safe and happy Independence Day this weekend.

Jon and I bought some new comics and decided to review them.  We review 4 new books that came out within the last 4 weeks.

All 4 comics are #1 issues and you should still be able to pick them up at your local comic store or download them digitally.

Here are the 4 titles we reviewed:

From left to right:

Listen to the podcast to find out if any (or all) these titles are worth your time and money.  Jon also gives a quick recap of the comic series, Huck.
