Ep.207 – Strange Adventures No. 216 (1969)

All This Has Gone Before But I Still Exist

May 30, 2022

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée believe the unbelievable when they read 1969's Strange Adventures no. 216! The great Neal Adams has passed away, but he's left behind a legacy of anguished facial contortions and stories about oddball supertypes that'll last forever. Case in point, the non-corporeal Deadman, who can jump into people's bodies without permission and make them do any weird thing he wants! It's kinda like in Wonder Woman 1984, but somehow far less problematic. Deadman's hot on the trail the of jerks what killed him, and his hunt will lead him to the mythical Nanda Parbat, an idyllic land of spiritual redemption and hallucinatory freak-out caves! Will Deadman make peace with the forces that have tormented him? If not I guess he could just jump into the body of someone who has.
