Welcome to Adstravaganza Part II! There's so much we wanted to cover about comic book advertising that we had to have a second episode; this one is jammed packed with Grown Ass Men goodness.
This time we have three fantastic special guests. Joseph Dasaro creates art inspired by comic book ads and even has some tattooed on his body. https://twitter.com/dasarosmith

Any comic book fan, especially those who read comics in the 60's and 70's, will remember all the crazy ads that ran monthly across the pages. Perhaps you remember, Sea Monkeys, Count Dante, Raquel Welch pillows and other amazing items that you just had to have. Well, Grown Ass Men have always been super interested in these so we contacted an expert on the subject, Kirk Demarais. His book "Mail Order Mysteries" is a definitive look at the ads and what was going on behind the scenes. Also in this episode - a brand new cover of the Traits classic "Nobody Loves the Hulk" by Sam Mastandrea and Adam Bernstein. Give a listen folks!

Welcome to a Grown Ass Men 2019! It's only fitting that as dates actually start to look like Star Trek years, that we decided to explore the glorious past of old time radio!
If you're a NYC person and a fan of progressive radio station WBAI, there's a good chance you've come across Max Schmid and his radio show The Golden Age of Radio. Max has hosted this show since the 1977 and provides the airwaves with classic old time radio shows like The Shadow and The Jack Benny Program.
We sat down with Max in the WBAI studios now located in Brooklyn. Don't miss it!Ep. 66: It's a Grown Ass Men Xmas!

Happy holidays folks! This season is a great one for the Grown Ass People in our orbit because we know we are getting some comics for presents. Yeah, maybe this lacks the element of surprise but who cares!? Do you really want any other gifts?!
Join us and our bunch of special guests as we chat Mr. Miracle, The Partridge Family, the other Hey Jude single and the exciting comics in our gift bags. See you in 2019!

Let it be known that Grown Ass Men likes a good art show. A comic book art show!? We are there. A year ago or so we went down to an amazing exhibit of Spider-Man original art at The Society of Illustrators in NYC. We had never seen so much original art (Ditko, Romita, Kane and many others) in one place, it was unreal! Turns out all this art was loaned to the Society by one of the biggest comic book art dealers, Mike Burkey. One look at Mike's website and you will be blown away by his collection. So, we got in touch to talk about his collecting and got some great stories too. Check it out!

Along with all the comics Grown Ass men bought back then (which was a lot!) we also bought magazines! What a surprise! In this episode we chat with great comic creator R. Sikoryak, in order to figure what's great about Mad, Cracked, Sick, Crazy and National Lampoon back in 1974. We also check into Sikoryak's fantastic work which can be found here - http://rsikoryak.com

Folks, how is it that Grown Ass Men is 63 episodes in and we haven't discussed the great film/TV franchise Planet of the Apes!?
Well we know that's unacceptable so here we go!
We chat the original five films, the forgettable Marky Mark ones and the fantastic recent three. To reminisce about the TV show and some other 1970's Saturday morning classics we call upon chief memory stirrer Carolyn Baeumler Bost.

Like you, Grown Ass Men like games. When you're comic freaks like us, you figure you can create some great heroes and villains too. So we called the funny creative Sam Mastandrea to join the festivities and play what eventually became named the Gerber Game (for Steve Gerber, not the baby food). Join as we explore The Human Porch!

Writer Doug Bost and musician Adam Bernstein discuss the things that grown men shouldn’t care about -- but these guys do. What’s on the table? Only fun stuff. Episodes focus on all aspects of the comic book universe, from the warehouse of a professional comic book hoarder to interviews with some of the greatest comics creators alive -- Neal Adams, Klaus Jansen, Chris Claremont, and more. With frequent guests, Doug and Adam also cover movies, music, classic TV, and important topics like, “What musical style do you associate with James T Kirk?” (The answer, of course, is Wagner.) And the kicker: Original music by Adam Bernstein in each episode.
