Welcome to our summer reading program with the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! This year, we are looking at DC’s Legends event from 1986. From the creative team of John Ostrander, Len Wein, John Byrne and Karl Kesel, this first company-wide event post-Crisis has Darkseid trying to destroy the heroes of Earth, both literally and figuratively.
This event ran 28 issues, so we are going to break this up over four sessions. For this week’s reading, we will be covering the following issues if you want to follow along at home.
- Batman #401
- Detective Comics #568
- Legends #1
- The Green Lantern Corps #207
- Legends #2
- Cosmic Boy #1
- Justice League of America #258
In addition to our comic reading, we also get a report on a con Cullen attended last weekend in Washington state; the celebration in St. Louis of the Blues winning the Stan Lee Cup; and a monthly visit to Clint’s Comics.
We also have our Pick 3 for new books coming out next week. John and Cullen attempt to guess Jerry’s pick, which ends up surprising the guys.
Remember that John and Jerry can be seen this weekend in Hutchinson, KS, for the Smallville Con. We are excited to once again be hosting the celebrity panels throughout the day on Saturday. Attend one or attend all six, we would love to see you there.
