Ep.159 – CyberRad No. 1 (1991)

Ol' Bandana Thigh vs. the Robots

May 17, 2021

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée duck and cover from CyberRad no. 1! In the early 90s, Neal Adams' Continuity Comics had one glaring problem: It just wasn't rad enough. Luckily, the solution was as simple as giving a teenage boy with tight glutes and sweet feathered bangs some robot body parts and setting him loose on a construction site to fight some leftover Battlestar Galactica droids. It's an epic brawl and not much else, but that's what kids were into back then, so this thing probably flew off the shelves, right? Does the phrase, "ran for eight issues" mean anything to you? It turns out CyberRad was just too radical to last, a totally tubular flame burning so hot it set its own bodacious hair on fire. Goodnight, sweet Bandana Thigh. We'll always remember your rockin' 90s style.
