This week we're talking about Amalgam Comics, the publisher that mashed up DC and Marvel comic characters! So it only makes sense to honor our show format and create a very special Dollar Bin Discovery episode with the help of a special guest expert!

Issue 83: Mort the Dead Teenager

Wednesday Apr 17, 2024

Wednesday Apr 17, 2024

Let's do some graverobbing! This week we're digging up Mort the Dead Teenager, one of the strangest comics Marvel ever put out in the 1990s. Joining us to talk about the book is zombie expert and comic creator Will Robson!

Wednesday Apr 10, 2024

It's time to throw on some comfy sweats, grab your favorite beverage, and burrow under your favorite blanket because we're talking about cozycore comics! Mike picked up Superman Meets the Quick Bunny, while Jessika snuggled up to Star Wars: Ewoks!

Wednesday Apr 03, 2024

Howdy, partner! This week's Dollar Bin Discoveries has us checking out some Wild West-themed comics. Mike came across an issue of the Justice League tangling with DC's Weird West heroes and Jessika rode into town with Billy the Kid's Old Timey Oddies!

Issue 82: Marvel's "Notzilla"

Wednesday Mar 27, 2024

Wednesday Mar 27, 2024

What happens when you really want to put Godzilla in your comic but don't have the rights anymore? Well, if you're Marvel, you have Iron Man fight a knockoff kaiju. Buckle up, folks! We brought in Godzilla expert Nick Marino to talk about this arc, and it's an absolute blast.

Wednesday Mar 20, 2024

Are you ready to listen to us talk about heroes you've (probably) never heard of? This week, we're looking at some lesser-known superhero books: Mike's checking out Pantheon while Jessika is reading Alter Ego from First Comics!

Wednesday Mar 13, 2024

When is a comic not so much a comic and more a synesthesiastic pulp fever dream? This week, Jessika's taking us on a tour of one of the most avant garde comics ever: Steve Aylett's Hyperthick!

Wednesday Mar 06, 2024

It's March! Which means it's Women's History Month! This week, the Dollar Bin Discoveries are Women's History-related. Jessika picked up Female Force: Hillary Clinton, while Mike brought in Death Talks About Life. 

Issue 80: Bloodseed

Wednesday Feb 28, 2024

Wednesday Feb 28, 2024

What do you get when you mix 70s pulp with 90s Xtreme™ aesthetics and use “gold ink” as your marketing gimmick? The answer is Bloodseed, one of the final books from Marvel UK in the 1990s!

Wednesday Feb 21, 2024

February isn't over yet, which means there's (probably) still romance in the air! So this week's Dollar Bin Discovery theme is "Unlikely Couples." Somehow, Mike and Jessika both picked up Top Cow/Marvel crossovers: Silver Surfer/Weapon Zero and Witchblade/Wolverine. They're not good! Surprise!
