Darkseid's Couch
A Comic Book Podcast That's Sometimes About Comic Books

S10:E7 - Swordquest (1984)

Waterworld

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée jump into the deep end of bizarre cross-promotional comic books with Swordquest: Waterworld! In the mid-80s, Atari put out a series of video games and corresponding comic books that, together, created a puzzle-solving real world contest. It appealed to everyone from children to tech nerds to that kid in high school who drew swords on all of his folders. Unfortunately Atari folded before the series could be completed, leaving several jewel-encrusted prizes unclaimed and a comic about the misadventures of a couple of creepy teenage siblings unfinished. We'll just assume everyone died, as is the Darkseid's Couch tradition.
