M.U.S.C.L.E. with Doc Issues (Capes on the Couch)

Sometimes things get missed. Like not realizing that a game is based on a comic. Or missing an NES game because you didn’t realize that a game was based on a comic. I know it’s a shock that I could miss something. Or an entire country can miss out on a wonderful franchise that you’d think would be a great fit if only people would know it existed and could give it a chance.

Good thing I have Doc Issues here from Capes on the Couch to help fix that mistake as we take a look at M.U.S.C.L.E. and the Kinnikuman manga that really should have been a hit over here but for some reason wasn’t because “Americans won’t get it” or something silly like that.

Learn such things as:

  • How many NBA comparisons can Chris make during this episode?
  • What former (and future?) guest specifically taught Doc words to use for this episode?
  • Why wasn’t this a bigger thing in the US?
  • And so much more!
