Ms. Tree Theatre - Ms. Tree Special #10 (1992)

This time out, I'll be test-driving a new feature called 'Ms. Tree Theatre' which will recap & recall the adventures of hard-boiled private investigator Ms. Michael Tree.  Created by mystery writer Max Allan Collins and illustrator Terry Beatty, Ms. Tree had a long running series published by a number of independent comics companies, and finished out her comics career with a run of 10 quarterlies/specials published by DC Comics.

Along with special guest Professor Alan Middleton of the Relatively Geeky Podcast Network, I'll be taking a look at Ms. Tree Special #10, which to date, has been Ms. Tree's last comics appearance.

This episode is part of a x-over with Relatively Geeky, so be sure to check out, the Quarter Bin Podcast #76, on which I join the Professor to talk about Ms. Tree Special #9.

Thanks for listening!

Theme created using a sample of 'Shotgun' by Duran Duran.  A short clip of 'Theme From Ms. Tree' by Cruisin' was used during the show closing.

The action proper begins with a murder by a mysterious 'negatively colored' Ms. Tree

An amazing coincidence - nemesis/collaborator Don Donnie Muerta shows up in Vietnam

A shocking revelation

Bloody finale

Technically a success, Ms. Tree's final case was a mess

A crowd gathers to mourn

Tease for old Legion fans - Brande affectionately refers to Cham as 'Son'

Uncharacteristic Cosmic Boy

Insectoid, slightly feminine redesign for an old Legion foe

Injected in the forehead with radioactive liquid gold (ouch!)

Shanna Showcase 15: Spidey Super Stories #35 (Sept. 1978)

Shanna Showcase is back with a look at Shanna's team-up with Spider-Man in Spidey Super Stories #35.  SSS was a title aimed squarely at younger readers, and the stories in this issue are particularly silly - and in the grand scheme of things, pretty inessential Shanna reading.  But I'm a total completist, so if you are, too . . .

Them what prints the news together, does their banking together

Them what saves a bank together, holds up traffic together

The animals choose - Shanna!

Comedy no-brainer - Spidey in an ape suit

From a story called 'The Godmother' - should have been called 'WTF?!'

2 panels and some Hitchcock humor that justify this story's existence
