In a freak mishap, Ranger 3 and its pilot, Captain William “Buck” Rogers, are blown out of their trajectory into an orbit which freezes his life-support systems, and returns Buck Rogers to Earth, 500 years later…Diabolu Frank is joined by Mr. Fixit to discuss the feature-length first original television episode of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, following the reedited theatrical pilot. After its debut, “Planet of the Slave Girls” was broken into the 3rd & 4th episodes of the show for reruns & syndication. This one stars Gil Gerard, Erin Gray, and David Groh, with special guest stars Jack Palance, Roddy McDowall, & Buster Crabbe. We totally forgot the subplot with the lady spy assassinating the super-computer, but we’re still the only Buck Rogers podcast with Black Emanuelle cross-content, so we’ve got that going for us. Facebook ? @rolledspine ? #fnBuckRogers ? rolledspinepodcasts@gmail.com ?

1979 Theatrical Pilot / S1E1 & 2Rated R: RestrictedStrong Crude Sexual Content And Language ThroughoutUnder 17 Requires Accompanying Parent Or Adult Guardian"In the year 1987, at the John F. Kennedy Space Center, NASA launched the last of America’s deep space probes. The payload, perched on the nose cone of the massive rocket, was a one-man exploration vessel – Ranger 3. Aboard this compact starship, a lone astronaut – Captain William “Buck” Rogers – was to experience cosmic forces beyond all comprehension. An awesome brush with death: in the blink of an eye, his life support systems were frozen by temperatures beyond imagination. Ranger 3 was blown out of its planned trajectory into an orbit a thousand times more vast, an orbit which was to return the ship full circle to his point of origin – its mother Earth – not in five months, but in 500 years.For 500 years, Buck Rogers drifted through a world in which reality and fantasy merged into a timeless dream…"Diabolu Frank is joined by Illegal Machine and Mr. Fixit in discussing the theatrically released pilot of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century starring Gil Gerard, Pamela Hensley, Erin Gray, and Henry Silva, in the first bawdy installment of a podcast covering the entire 1979-1981 science fantasy television show, based on the 1928 novella, 1929-1967 comic strip, 1932-1947 radio series, 1939 movie serial, and prior 1950–1951 television series.Facebook ? @rolledspine ? #fnBuckRogers ? rolledspinepodcasts@gmail.com ?

Diabolu Frank and Illegal Machine look at the early years of Epic Illustrated, Marvel Comics’ bid at a Heavy Metal style mainstream newsstand anthology magazine. Launched with a Spring 1980 cover date, the magazine featured an unwieldy mix of creator-owned “indie” work, Robert E. Howard/Michael Moorcock fantasy adaptations, and corporate super-hero stuff like Silver Surfer saddle-stitched with a mix of thin glossy and heavy matte paper stocks (like Playboy back in the day.) More to the point, the boys focus on “The Metamorphosis Odyssey,” Jim Starlin’s sci-fi/fantasy, serialized across fourteen chapters and nine issues. Space pharaoh Aknaton spends millennia setting up a doomsday gambit to halt the onslaught of the Zygoteans across the Milky Wat galaxy before gathering his players and seeking to blow the Infinity Horn. You can also read the story in Slave Labor Graphics’ (dismal) 2000 collection or Dynamite Entertainment’s supreme hardcover, the best presentation available in print. This story introduced Vanth Dreadstar, lethal protagonist of a long running ongoing series published by more houses than most any other character in comics. Afterwards, Frank has another longish “Swords of Cerebus” installment, looking at issues #18-21 of Dave Sims iconic indy. Finally, your mail on the Alterna Comics episode, featuring some of their talent.Rolled Spine Podcasts are on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, ShoutEngine and the Internet Archive.Friend us on FacebookRoll through our tumblrEmail us at rolledspinepodcasts@gmail.comTweet us as a group @rolledspine, or individually as Diabolu Frank & Illegal Machine.

Alterna Comics Spinner RackIllegal Machine, Mister Joe Fixit and Diabolu Frank return to deeper dive independent comics podcasting after an over two year hiatus with a tweaked format and an accelerated release schedule (which could very well be an annual and still count, though.) Adopting something more like a magazine format, the boys turn a virtual spinner rack of “floppy” titles from the publisher Alterna Comics, who are “Bringing Back Newsprint Comics” of the sort we grew up on at the very inviting cover price of a dollar to a buck-fifty for often full color original work. We choose individual issues or runs of the titles Amazing Age, The Chair, Croak, Doppelganger, Mother Russia, & Scrimshaw, Trespasser, & The Wicked Righteous to mixed but hopefully entertaining results. Afterwards, Frank has another brief scrape with “Swords of Cerebus,” looking at issues #13-18 of Dave Sims iconic indy. Finally, we look at your ancient mail, which looks and smells like old newsprint by this point.Rolled Spine Podcasts are on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, ShoutEngine and the Internet Archive.Tweet us as a group @rolledspine, or individually as Diabolu Frank & Illegal Machine.

In the earliest days of #MarvelSHP, when Frank was still working out his agenda, he stumbled upon Patsy Walker's surprisingly rich legacy of one of Marvel's earliest and most important but least recognized characters! It's been three years since he tried to spread the word to Illegal Machine and Mister Fixit, so you might have thought that was that! In truth, Frank has continued to collect Patsy back issues and solicit suitors to discuss the humor strips that ran from 1944-1967!
