Gary Lactus’ Vault of Tymbus#13

November 28th, 2009


Hi there.  In this special SOS edition of the Vault, we look at:

Doom Patrol #2, Red Tornado #1, Strange Tales #1, Hookjaw and Jackie

If our choices of talking point seem a few months old it’s because I’ve was locked for a very long time in the Vault with Tymbus.  It took a long time for me to get over the trauma, okay?  I couldn’t even bring myself to edit this, the bleakest time of my life so far,  so Brown Lantern had to do the duties.  For this I am very grateful.

Gary Lactus’ Vault of Tymbus#12

September 21st, 2009


Wowzers!  We sure had a lot to talk about last time I visited Tymbus in my vault.  I’ve decided to give it to you in seven handy-dandy sections in the vain hope that it might make the whole experience less tedious.

Welcome, dear listener to another forty-odd minutes of intensely engaging, life-changing chit-chat.  In this podcast I try and tie everything together with the idea that it’s dreams what keep comics alive whilst Tymbus tries to torpedo my motif and rants about the European Union.  Fancy a listen?  What say you?


Adventure into amazing!

Pictures and comments on subject matter!!!!!!!!


Everyone loves Jack Kirby, right?  Come listen now as I, Gary Lactus discuss with that corpulent comic critic, Tymbus, The Losers from DC Comics.  Originally published in Our Fighting Forces, this podcast deals with the recently collected hardback.  We also try an experiment in which I use the sound effects from the book to generate some Dadaist sound poetry.

There it is! Let’s look inside!


This time we look at and talk about some incredibly non-essential publications from comics history and answer some of your welcome letters and emails.  We have romance with Teen Confessions, thrilling drama with Have You The Nerve To Face The Unexpected, and rubbish with Wrath.

We also ponder the question: Malibu Comics, did it flip or did it float?

Look! Pictures so you can read along with Gary and Tymbus!



In this latest, up-to-the-minute podcast, Tymbus talks about the weeks-old Watchmen movie and Gary Lactus looks at Mike McMahon’s work on Doctor Who from 1980.  Oh yes, Tymbus talks a bit about the DC humour comic, Plop from 1975 but by then we’ve all tuned out and found better things to do.
