Zod

A geek from the Midwest. I am about as corn fed American as you get and I love it. The 19 70s is still THE best decade of film- ever. If anyone, like me is inspired by that, you will do fine. Star Wars, Trek, Apes, Buffy, Avengers are on my geek radar among others...

  • Abe

    Very fond memories of Night Flight!

  • Abe

    Is Orcus evil enough to work in HR?

  • Abe

    There’s Darla! I was getting worried.

  • Orcus

    “See you on the street, punk!
    “Yaaaaaaaah!”

    That always got a chuckle out of Orcus

  • Orcus

    As fucked up as Orcus is..no. That’s a special brand of Eeeeevil

  • Abe

    I’ve never seen the comic strip either.

  • Orcus

    For those not in the know Orcus will comment in the annotated version of the podcast:

    For starters, J-Men forever, which was a homage to the old serials from the 30’s and 40’s where footage was stitched together (as well as some new footage added) to make a coherent narrative. Basically they took some of the action adventure serials (Captain Marvel most notably) edited them together and did their own voice-overs. Think along the lines of MST3K and you will get the gist.

    So sit back and check out how our villain with his base on the moon will try to corrupt everyone with the Eeeeeevils of Rock and Roll:

  • Abe

    Well, I didn’t know there was supposed to be a spoiler alert!

  • Abe

    Very cool!

  • Orcus

    Well when we did it it was

  • Orcus

    Night Flight also had Dynaman which they did the voice over treatment for one of the old Japanese kids show. (Which one Orcus is not certain):

  • Orcus

    As Orcus always like to say, the show made more sense at 3:00 AM

  • Abe

    Life seems to make more sense at 3:00 AM.

  • Dee

    “We got Star Wars talk today…”

  • Dee

    That was one hell of a panel!

    Darla does not sound too happy.

  • Dee

  • I_am_better

    Darla is a true podcast dog. A pod dog

  • I_am_better

    “Sounds like you have your own demon over there…” LMAO

  • I_am_better

    Famous geek with a lot of money…? Hmmmmm….

  • I_am_better

    No no – don’t send Darla to Orcus!

  • I_am_better

    I just DL’d the original Marvel SW comics. I read them in finnish back in the day. Revisiting the past.

  • I_am_better

    They went into strange places for sure

  • Dee
  • I_am_better

    THAT was one of the strangest, yeah

  • Orcus

  • RJD

  • RJD

    Only the mute button cann stop Darla

  • Orcus

    Strange didn’t cover it. Considering it was the 70’s you would assume at some point someone smoked a bale of dope to come up with the rabbit idea

  • Orcus

    BEHOLD! What discussion about Night Flight would be complete without BOB and the church of the Subgenius:

  • Orcus

  • RevengeofZodLovesMaude

    Jaxxon was a real ass kicker.

  • RevengeofZodLovesMaude

    Nothing shall stop her. SHe is a dog on a rampage… she will bark in the face of adversity… she will own all your human asses!

  • RevengeofZodLovesMaude

    Zod is in troll mode.

    Are you talking about the Al Williamson / Archie Goodwin LA time comic?:

    http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_comic_strip

    There is also the Russ Manning comics that came out around ’78

    Both of which were reprinted by Dark Horse comics. But what DH did was reformat the comic for the comic book page.

    If you want the AW / AG in the original format, it was released as a signed and numbered version in the early 90’s (Of which Orcus is a proud owner of). Originally it retailed for around $150 and is now available on amazon as a second hand book:
