Come take a trip with us waaay waay back to a time before superhero and comics based t.v. and movies were everywhere. A kid's comics fix was relegated to a couple of 60's cartoons, the occasional Saturday morning show and.. well... actual comic books.
Then along came POWER RECORDS to deliver a bridge between the printed and the live action experience. Heroes had a voice via actors, sound effects and music you could listen to as you looked at the comic issue depicted.
Sure it was just a cooler version of those school film strips with the bell to tell you to move the projected image forward but hey.. beggars can't be choosers!
In this one we quickly go over a history of POWER RECORDS, we talk about our impressions and the experience of stories told audibly while looking at the panels.
Gab a bunch about select favorite issues ( surprise.. it's the monster ones), the artists involved, where you went to seek out these artifacts (wasn't no comic stores back then) and we even go on a bit of a tangent.
Cool audio clips abound !!
