About The Show

The Nexus of All Realities: A Man-Thing Podcast is a twice monthly podcast featuring an issue by issue analysis of the 1970s classic monster comic written by legendary writer Steve Gerber. Along the way we talk about the history, culture and social issues of the time – filtered through the lens of a giant, green swamp monster. In addition to that there will be periodic articles on comics and related subjects written by the show’s host and guest authors from time to time. It’s bizarre, it’s wacky and occasionally profound. Enjoy!
