  1. Karate chop medicine was a whole semester in Med School. Because you needed to learn all of it's uses.

    One day, should we meet, I'll demonstrate.

    1. Alan: "Throat's a little sore. May have talked too much yesterday."

      Anj: Hii-yaaahh!

  2. Great show Perfessor, the episodes are even more special when you have a chum, I loved Rob’s insight and humour. I bought this issue as a kid and found it most disappointing - the cover promised ‘four famous co-stars’, but two you could see Batman with most every issue of JLA, and the others were villains, and ones who were always in the Batman stories. At least in B&B #100, the ‘four famous co-stars’ were all heroes (GL, GA, BC and R). Heck, Joker had been the ‘guest star’ at least twice previously... the Joker, a guy you could see in any random issue of Detective Comics or Batman, where’s the novelty? And don’t give me ‘four famous co-stars’ in a deadly dull font, I want dynamic logos!

    It seemed that every time I picked up a B&B it was the same old people - Wildcat, Green Arrow, Metamorpho, Deadman, Sgt Rock, the Creeper... zzzz.

    And yet I have the two published volumes of the B&B Omnibus and the third on order. What is wrong with me?

    Well, they don’t half look good, thanks to Jim Aparo. And eventually Zany Haney left and the stories got less loony - I’m not a fan of Earth B. And you never know when you might get invited on a podcast!

    1. Thank you, Martin. Guest shows tend to be easier to put together, but that all depends on the guest, I suppose!
