Hey Kids, Comics! #147 - The Kids Are

• August 21st, 2015

This issue of Hey Kids, Comics! is, in the words of Mr. T, "For the kids!"  At least in a literal sense it is as Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston set their sights on the portrayal of the child super-hero in comics.  From the more high profile sidekicks like Wonder Girl or Bucky to the the all-minors team known as Power Pack, over the decades many a young kid has suited up to tackle crime in costume.

How does this dynamic work and why?  Where does Bruce Wayne get off running his own villain cannon-fodder training ground?  What's up with absentee parents and equestrian aliens tossing super powers around like so much candy from strangers?
Okay, its not THAT bad, but there are some interesting observations made this outing.  As well as some trademark lowbrow humor.

Hey Kids, Comics! #145 - Where Does He Get Those Wonderful Toys?; Vehicular

• July 31st, 2015

From the portable to the wearable and beyond, "Where Does He Get Those Wonderful Toys?" has been quite the journey thus far.  This week Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston buckle up for the latest installment of the current story arc.  This issue is all about the vehicles from fill-in-the-blank-mobiles to some of the most unique conveyances in comics.

Is a helicopter shaped like a crescent moon a good idea?  Is it worse than a conversion van crammed full of equipment and a motorcycle?  How about an airship that invokes an animal shape or form?
While these are not actual questions directly posed in so many words, they are certainly part of the flavor of this "vehicular" episode.

Hey Kids, Comics! #141 - Secret Agent Man

• July 3rd, 2015

The mountain lion hunts by the light of the full moon.

While that may mean absolutely nothing to most, it may mean something to the espionage community which may wind up having the JCU wind up on a list somewhere.  The purpose of this is to set up this week's issue of Hey Kids, Comics! in which hosts Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston explore the world of spies and secret agencies.  
From the obvious like S.H.I.E.L.D. to the obscure anagram-themed organizations, there was far more subject matter to explore than time allowed.  None the less this show brings you what is declassified in the world of intrigue!
None the less, you may want to keep this one to yourself.
