The Voice That Doomed... The Spectre

Apr 12, 2021

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée unleash vengeance upon their enemies after reading Adventure Comics nos. 439-440! In the 1970s, DC Comics was eager to capitalize on the newly-relaxed Comics Code Authority guidelines and decided the best way to do that was to revive God's favorite underdressed goth assassin, the Spectre! Finally allowed to reach his full murderous potential, the Spectre casts holy judgement on all of the malcontents of society, from slow-walkers to people with two first names to even the occasional criminal, if he's not too busy! Will his unwavering crusade convince God to finally release the Spectre from his existential prison? Yeah, have you ever known God to do that?
