Face Front, True Believers! This week Illegal Machine and Diabolu Frank look at the 1974 radical revision of the feminist super-heroine The Cat* into the bikini-clad cat-woman Tigra, begun in the left field title Giant-Sized Creatures #1 (July 1974)! We follow that up with a gander at Tigra's second appearance in the black & white horror magazine Monsters Unleashed #10 (December 1975)! Weird wild stuff! Apologies for the dodgy sound quality, as our digital mixer made margaritas instead of resonance, but at least the new microphones keep the flat, hollow, two-guys-in-a-den sound clear of the perpetual haze of distortion hiss you're probably used to by now and prefer. Sigh. By the way, we stumbled upon some Ramona Fradon art for The Cat here and here, so don't miss that! Finally, we didn't receive a single comment on the blogs about last week's Nova episode, and we know it didn't suck like Ka-Zar the Great, so we blew off the Mail Bag this week. Count Drunkula, why hast thou forsaken us? Feel free to leave a comment about how we left the comments out. Frank'll spend the time he saved on editing to respond. Episode art tumblr here.

[*Editor's Note: The Cat made her audio commentary debut appearance in Episode 012! Yes folks, now even The Marvel Super Heroes Podcast itself has continuity! --Rascally Roy]
