    WCPEver Episode 308 - There's a Stargirl Waiting in the Sky

    20/05/2020 Duración: 55min

    Last night as news was breaking of one CW star leaving Gotham City, a new shining star took her place on the CW stage of heroes. A new shining Stargirl! Stargirl is based on the 2000 DC series Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., about teenager Courtney Whitmore, who moves with her family to Blue Valley, Nebraska, where she becomes a superhero after finding a cosmic rod in her step-father's garage. Once she overcomes the learning curve for becoming a hero, like managing a secret identity and getting to class on time, Stargirl earns her spot as a valued member of the Justice Society of America. We take a look at the 2000 series, which can be found on the DC Universe app or in a new Stargirl trade paperback available today. Wait, did we just say it's available today? Yes, that's right, the stores are back open as new books resume shipping this week. With the return of new books, we go back to our regular habit of choosing new books each week with our Pick 3 selections. This week we choose between one DC book, one Image

    13/05/2020 Duración: 01h13min

    On this week's episode of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!: We look at the career of Amanda Conner for our Pick 3 choice this week. With three decades drawing the funny books for a living, Amanda Conner is at the top of her game with Harley Quinn. But would we get a Harley book signed by Amanda? Tune in to find out! Comic stores are getting ready to re-open in the next few weeks as new books begin shipping. We discuss what that might look like for stores and for customers. Are you making plans to buy books next week? We provide updates on our #My500ComicGoal challenge. John's reading journey led him to some classic issues of Avengers from the 1970s, but he's got some questions for Jerry, the resident-expert of Avengers Mansion. We would love to hear your comments on the show. Let us know what you've been reading or watching this week. Contact us on our website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or email.

    WCPEver Episode 306 - From Ciudad to Extraction with Ande Parks

    06/05/2020 Duración: 01h28min

    Listen up, friends. Despite the movie theaters being closed, there is still a #1 movie around the world right now - Extraction on Netflix. And if you pay attention to the credits, you will see that this film is based on the Ciudad graphic novel done by friend-of-the-show Ande Parks. For the long-time listeners, you are well aware of Ande Parks by now. As a fixture in the Kansas City comic book scene and a wearer of hats, Ande joined us back on Episode 37 when Ciudad was first published. In the five years since that recording, Ciudad was optioned, went through a few script revisions and title changes, and debuted at the end of April as Extraction starring one of those Chris guys from the Marvel movies.  Ande has a print for sale of Extraction's main character Tyler Rake for sale over at his website. Be sure to pick up one (or two or three...) Also, we turn our attention to creator Neal Adams for our Pick 3 choices. With a career starting in the early 1960s, we have a lot of books to choose from Adams' cred

    Atomic batteries to power! Turbines to speed. Roger. Ready to move out. Buckle up your Bat-Safety Belts, WCPE citizens, as we have a treat lined up for you this week. Coming to us from approximately 14 miles outside of Gotham City, we are interviewing editor Jim Beard for his new book, ZLONK! ZOK! ZOWIE! The Subterranean Blue Grotto Guide to Batman '66 - Season One.  ZLONK! ZOK! ZOWIE! is an essay collection looking at the episodes from the first season of Batman. Every essay covers the two parts of each week's episode, plus a bonus essay on the first Batman theatrical release. Some familiar names in the collection include Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore, Paul Kupperberg, Chuck Dixon, Dan Greenfield, Chris Franklin, Peter Sanderson, Bob Greenberger, and many more. We discuss with Jim our introductions to the Batman series, bringing this book to life, our favorite Catwoman, and when we might see the season 2 and 3 collections. You can find ZLONK! ZOK!

    22/04/2020 Duración: 01h29min

    On this week's episode of the Worst.Comic. Podcast. EVER! Jerry sat in on a Q&A session with writer/artist Jeff Lemire. This was a fund-raiser for the Hero Initiative, allowing fans to chat with some of their favorite creators. Jerry asked about Jeff's work on The Terrifics at DC, which seemed to mirror the Fantastic Four just a little bit. We focus our attention on creator Walt Simonson for our Pick 3 choices. The man with the dinosaur signature has a long career filled with desirable books to get autographed! How are we going to pick just one book each? DC Comics made a big announcement at the end of last week, making plans to start shipping books by the end of April, albeit with someone other than Diamond. As you can imagine, we had a fun conversation with this topic. Finally, we check in on our reading progress for the #My500ComicGoal challenge. We would love to hear your comments on the show.

    On this week's episode of the Worst.Comic. Podcast. EVER! We are joined by friend of the show and Solution Squad creator Jim McClain, who sits in with us to discuss all things comic! We focus on creator George Perez for our Pick 3 choices. Man, it is so hard to keep this to just one book from each of us this week. We try to look into the future and imagine what the comic industry in the future - will we still have comic books, and will we still have comic book shops? We also check in on our reading progress for the #My500ComicGoal challenge. We would love to hear your comments on the show. Let us know what you've been reading or watching this week.

    08/04/2020 Duración: 01h05min

    Welcome back to the Worst.Comic. Podcast. EVER! The great thing about doing this podcast with your friends is that we have something to look forward to each week with our recording sessions. Sometimes, we get the recording done in an hour and we are on our way. And sometimes, we re-do half of the episode because we didn't realize the recording had stopped. Anyway, we hope that our podcast is something that you look forward to each week. Whether you listen to it on Wednesday when it is released, or you wait until later on to give us a listen. We appreciate everyone who takes the time to give our show a try each week. For our Pick 3 choices, which is sponsored by our friends at Clint's Comics, we once again are spotlighting a classic comic creator, as we choose one book that we would want that creator to autograph. For this week, we look at writer/artist John Byrne and his legendary career. From X-Men to Fantastic Four to Alpha Flight to Superman to Next Men, there is no one correct answer. Tune in to hear our

    01/04/2020 Duración: 01h02min

    We're back!  Not that we weren't going to come back, but the conversation had to be held - what do we do after episode 300? How do we top that or improve on that or even just do another show ever again? But we looked at the news of the week - NO NEW COMICS ON WEDNESDAY - and we rose to the challenge. Can we talk about comics for an hour without any new product? The answer is YES! Of course, with no new comics, we had to do something different with our Pick 3 choices, which is sponsored by our friends at Clint's Comics. But inspiration struck through an email, and a new concept was developed. Each week until this comic crisis ends, we will take a look at a classic comic creator, and we will each pick one book that we want that creator to autograph. For this first week, we look at writer/artist Frank Miller, and his legendary career. From Wolverine to Daredevil to Batman to Sin City to Martha Washington, there is no one correct answer. Tune in to hear our picks, and get an early start on next week's pick. We w

    WCPEver Episode 300 - A Podemic of Podcasts LIVE

    25/03/2020 Duración: 01h31min

    LIVE from Kansas City and Portland, It's the WORST. COMIC. PODCAST. EVER! Episode 300 show! Seriously, when we started this show back in 2014, the thought that we would do this for at least 300 episodes had not crossed our minds. We'll do it for a little bit until we got bored, or it became too much like work. Along the way, some of you started listening. Then more of you started listening. And we realized this could be our ticket to stardom. (Still waiting on that to finally happen....) So instead of recording this panel live at Planet Comicon in front of friends and family, we opted to record it live over the Internet. We got together, talked about some comics, played a game (see the slides here: Slideshow! ), and then took participants' questions about comics, movies, tv, and the other nerdy things in our lives. We want to thank everyone who has been part of our journey to episode 300, and we hope you stick around for even more fun stuff! We would love to hear your comments on the show. Let us know what y

    So, since we were last gathered together, the world as we know it turned upside down and inside out. Planet Comicon this weekend? Nope, scratch that, let's push that out to August 14-16. Kids going back to school next week? Nope, scratch that, let's push that out to August, too. We got a lot of thoughts bouncing around in our heads right now, and we spend most of the time working through them. We would love to hear your thoughts on our various topics, so please write in and let us know. (We would offer for an in-person discussion, but that has been pushed out to August as well.) As a side note, we still have episode 300 coming up next week. We can't get together for a panel, so who wants to join us online for the recording of the episode? Details should be posting shortly. We still do have our Pick 3 choices for books coming out today in shops all over. We do want to remind you that your local comic shops still need your support, so contact your store and find out what their policies are going to be for

    11/03/2020 Duración: 01h03min

    We are counting down the days when we can see our friends at Planet Comicon in Kansas City, but before that, we have another con to tell you about.  With the postponement of Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, originally scheduled for March 12-15, the comic community in the Pacific Northwest was left wondering what to do next? For many creators and vendors, they were counting on ECCC as a source of income. For fans, this was an event that they had been planning on attending for some time. So the brilliant team at PDXComicsArts.com decided to put on a comic convention in Portland, hosted at different comic book stores around the city. Within hours of the ECCC announcement, PDX Pop Up Con was up and running. We sat down with Indigo Kelleigh from PDXComicsArts.com and Katie Proctor with Books With Pictures to discuss what it takes to put together a city-wide con in just one week. While we cover a lot of content on the show, this is a fast-moving con, so please click the link above to get the most up-to-date info

    04/03/2020 Duración: 01h02min

    Welcome to the Jungle! As in the Checkerboard Jungle! We've got a special show lined up this week, as John and Jerry sit down to talk with comic creator Mark McKenna about his new Kickstarter project, Banana Tail and the Checkerboard Jungle. If you came of age reading comics in the 1980s or 1990s, the odds are extremely high that you read a book that McKenna worked on. Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and many more, if you name a character, it's a safe bet that Mark has multiple credits with said character to his name. In 2003, Mark created Banana Tail, inspired by characters created by his father. Over the last 17 years, Banana Tail has been featured in multiple formats and venues. This week, Mark launched a Kickstarter to help fund the latest adventures of Banana Tail. We think this is a great project and have already supported the Kickstarter, which runs through March 31. Click the link above to review the project, and check out the rewards - specifically the portfolio with Banana Tail prints from the likes of

    26/02/2020 Duración: 01h06min

    We must say - this was a good week to be in the business of talking comics. Last Wednesday saw the release of Batman #89, which skyrocketed in price before it could even go on sale in some stores. That was followed on Friday by DC letting Dan DIDio go in a surprising but not unexpected move. Just like that, we have a full episode worth of topics to discuss. Throw in our Pick 3 choices for the week, as well as a look at what we have been reading in the last seven days, and call it a show! As a reminder, make plans to attend the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! panel at Planet Comicon on March 20 at 7:30 PM. More details will be coming in the weeks ahead. We would love to hear your comments on the show. Let us know what you've been reading or watching this week. Contact us on our website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or email. We want to hear from you! As always, we are the Worst. Comic. Podcast.

    WCPEver Episode 295 - Bad Idea? Terrific!

    19/02/2020 Duración: 01h05min

    It was a busy Sunday evening for the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! John and Jerry took in a showing of Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey before heading to the studio to record the show. So we are chockful of opinions and suggestions on the latest entry to the DC Cinematic Universe. We discuss the launch of Bad Idea, a new publishing venture that will put their comics in a limited number of stores to start. These books will not be available on digital or in a collected edition, so you will have to track down the physical comic to read these new stories from some top-notch talent. We debate whether Bad Idea is a bad idea or not. Jerry brought The Terrifics #25, which is a choose-you-own-adventure book done in spectacular fashion. If we were really smart, we would have you fast forward to the 30-minute mark for Jerry's take or go to the 32-minute mark for John's take. We have updates on our #My500ComicGoal from the last week. We round things out this week with our Pick 3 choices for new books coming out TODAY! Fina

    So we got some bad news and good news for you this week. Let's start with the bad news first - there will be no new WCPE podcast this Friday. We know, we know, we're all creatures of habit, and not having that show on Friday morning is going to leave a gap in our listening schedule going into the weekend. But here is the good news - THE PODCAST IS NOW COMING OUT ON WEDNESDAYS! Seriously, here is it, the first of our new Wednesday releases. Forget about the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!. Instead, think of us as Wednesday. Comic. Podcast. Excellence! It will take a little getting used to the change, but we are sure you will come to embrace the new schedule as much as we have. Be sure to leave us your comments about the new schedule. Now, as for the show this week: Joker has a new girlfriend, or does he? Maybe she is just a new henchwoman? We discuss the news about Punchline joining the DC Universe later this year. We catch up on the end of the CW Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. We discuss parts 4 and

    Planet Comicon is coming up in just a matter of weeks! Holy cow, we got to get busy and get ready for hosting panels and promoting the Hero Initiative and hanging out with our tribe in downtown Kansas City. Are we going to see you there? To get us caught up on all things Planet Comicon, we have brought into the studio this week Chris Jackson. Over 20 years ago, Chris started up Planet Comicon. Since that first show in Overland Park, the show has grown and grown and GROWN, to a point where it is now in the Top 20 of shows in the country. So on the show this week, we will give you a run-down of the many comic and celebrity guests that you will see at Bartle Hall on the weekend of March 20-22. If you listen carefully, you might even hear some surprise guest announcement breaking first on the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! Truth be told, there are so many guests at the show, we couldn't name them all. So head over to PlanetComicon.com or check out their social media feeds to get the most up-to-date announcement
