Episode 52: Power Pack #40
Mar 15th, 2020 by jeffandrickpresent
When last we left our courageous kids, they had been hit with a couple of major setbacks. First, their friend Rebecca was kidnapped by their mortal enemy, the Boogeyman. Then the boys were grounded because said mortal enemy dropped off some pictures of them hanging out of their apartment window in their civilian clothes. But things could always be worse....I mean, none of Power Pack has turned into a demon queen.
Yeah....that would be worse and harder to explain. No, the family should be happy. They have each other. I mean, as long as they don't tear each other apart.
They also have friends, like the New Mutants! That's right....the other teen team that was kicking around the Marvel Universe at this time. Boy, they can sure make an entrance though.
You know what is tricky about describing these comics through pictures that we chose and talked about a month ago, and then started to set up the page with a gag, and then forgot about it until the night before you are supposed to launch the podcast and the website? That...That is the tricky thing. It is a bit like a kick to the trousers.
I guess there is not much more I can say about this issue except that it features two teams of kids that Louise Simonson loved to write about during the 80's. And that is pretty cool. It makes you wanna fly high in the sky, being all nigh invulnerable and stuff.
Because we launch on Sunday's, and because the next picture I show is the parents getting all dressed up, I guess I should tell you that it is time to put on your Sunday best and listen to our podcast. But you are such great listeners, I really do not want to tell you what to wear while listening to us. Except clown shoes....no clown shoes.
We do have great listeners and fans. We wish we could shake every one of your hands. Unfortunately, our fat stacks of money have not yet rolled in, so we cannot fly out to each and every one of your houses. If we did, I am sure Jeff would give you a kiss. (Except not because of social distancing....actually the flying thing sounds frightening right now)
And speaking of thanks, a BIG final thanks to Hoover Jeremiah for an amazing gift. This is truly a thing of beauty (the poster, not Jeff and Rick). Thank you so much.
