On this week’s episode of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!:
We discuss the retirement announcement from legendary creator George Pérez. Due to his ongoing health issues, George announced over the weekend that he will be stepping away from future comic work. All three of us have grown up reading his comics, and we all have had the pleasure of meeting him in person multiple times. We share our thoughts on his career, our favorite runs, and even our favorite covers done by Pérez.
We have our Pick 3 choices for books coming out next week at your local comic book shops. It doesn’t happen often, but we did not pick a single book from Marvel or DC. Instead, we have picks from Dark Horse, IDW and Image Comics. Can you guess our picks?
We finish things up with a look ahead at the solicits for books coming out in March. It’s not too late to let your local shop know what you want to pick up. We give you our highlights of books we want to read this spring.
Remember you can find Cullen at the Hero Initiative table at Wizard World Portland, which runs February 22-24, 2019. Cullen will be hosting artist Scott Koblish, who’s most recent work includes runs on Despicable Deadpool and Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows.
