WCPE Episode 228 – How Many Takes Does It Take to Start a Show?

For this week, that answer is six or seven. But that should come as no surprise to the loyal listeners of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!

See, we were down one co-host, as John was on the DL with a bum leg. You may not realize it, but leg injuries severely diminish a podcaster’s ability to talk about comics. Jerry was on the DL for a month with his knee surgery last year, so it’s a real thing. Never fear though, John is getting back to normal and should make a triumphant return next week.

Then, Cullen and Jerry got a late start with recording. As you may have noticed with past episodes, the later we start, the loopier we get. It took multiple takes for us to get one that lives up to the high expectations for a WCPE episode.

But once we got rolling, we like to think that we put together a really good episode. Really good! Seriously, this has to be one of the top…. oh, I don’t know… let’s just say it’s in the top 228 for best episodes ever by the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!

  • We do a deep dive into the Wal-Mart comics, exploring some of the business dealings that brought this deal together for DC Comics. We explore what works and what might work better for the 100-Page Giants.
  • Cullen talks about a new book he recently received, DC Comics: Anatomy of a Metahuman. With illustrations from artist Ming Doyle, this coffee table book explores how some of the greatest characters in DC Comics work with their unique anatomical composition. it sounds crazy, but this is a beautiful looking book that you need to check out.
  • We have our weekly Pick 3, which is sponsored by the good people at Clint’s Comics in Kansas City. It’s not often that this happens, but we all picked a title from DC Comics. (Seems like a lot of DC talk this week without John – he’s going to be so jealous!)
  • We look at a recent Entertainment Weekly ranking of the Marvel Netflix series. From Daredevil Season One to Daredevil Season Three, the 11 series are ranked. We offer up our commentary and make suggestions for a more-correct order, in our humble opinions.

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 by email. We want to hear from you! As always, we are the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! and we hope you enjoy the show.
