Character Sphinx is Back!!!

We are down to one host (hopefully we'll get some guest hosts on here once in a while). But we've got some other great format changes. Fewer issues covered in each episode and we'll be mixing up characters more frequently so we don't all get too bored with one character for too long. This will also give us a chance to start digging into some bigger characters with a larger backlog.

The coming first 4 episodes will be:
1. Batman -  May 1939-February 1940
      -Detective Comics V1 #27-36
2. Thor -  August 1962-May 1963
     -Journey Into Mystery V1 #83-92
3. Doom Patrol - June 1963-August 1964
     -My Greatest Adventure 80-85
     -Doom Patrol 86-89
4. Legion of Super-Heroes - April 1958-February 1962
     -Adventure Comics 247, 267, 282, 290, 293
     -Action Comics 267, 276
     -Superboy 86, 89
     -Superman 147
