I need to get ahold of those Fleisher Spectre stories --- I've read a few but not a enough. The thing about Fleischer is that while almost everyone else in 1970s comics was trying to be Stan Lee (certainly true of Thomas, Conway, Wein, Wolfman, etc) Fleischer seemed wholy untouched by that. He was an old school pulp storyteller -- he would have fit in with EC comics or the the other post-war genre comics. He did stories with clear characters, beginning middles and ends. NO interest in world-building or continuity. This made his refreshing -- although he also clearly, as we can now say without fear of a lawsuit, bugfuck crazy

Do you guys know why this isn’t showing up in the Apple Podcast feed?

Hi Tylet--i can see it in my feed on Apple. It is under a different name: "Guy Davis Gets Strange, Rachel Pollack Tells Time, The Spectre Kills Everything" is the title there.

Jeet--not to nitpick on you too hard, but Fleisher seemed pretty pleased with himself for using continuity at DC in advance of basically everybody else, during the time period when Marvel was using continuity to show them all up. If you can track down the reprint issues, you can see both he and Levitz singling out that aspect of these comics for praise.

Tucker, oh sorry thought this was a different episode. Thanks for responding!
