About this Episode

Earth Station One is proud to shine a spotlight on a cartoonist who has been giving us the giggles with his goofs and gags for over four decades, Fred Hembeck. Mike and Mike chat with the artist himself about his days as Little Freddy, being in the funny pages of the Daily Planet, destroying the Marvel Universe, and putting his signature curlicues on classic comic covers. Plus, Kevin and Robert join us for some crazy comic book trivia! All this, along with Angela's A Geek Girl's Take, Michelle's Iconic Rock Moment, and Shout Outs!!
