Welcome to WCPEver 5.0!
Very quietly over the summer, the podcast entered it’s fifth year of comic talking, which according to our top-notch research team, makes us the longest-running lowest-rate show in our demographic. We are proud to be the Worst. And we are pleased that you, our loyal listeners, come back for the Worst each and every week.
Now, to add to the numbers of year five of podcasting, the odometers for each of us are going to roll over to 50 over the next nine months. John leaves the 49 club behind in a matter of hours as this podcast is posted, with Jerry following in two months. The youngster of the bunch, Cullen, will join 50 next June. (And yes, he still gets carded!) We are all excited for the new opportunities being 50 gives us, such as additional medical exams and those sweet AARP discounts.
We wanted to mark year 5 & year 50 on the podcast in some way, and we came up with WCPEver 5.0. Special thanks as always to friend of the show and Photoshop wizard Brent Kincade for the new updated logo for us to use over the next year. We will find some more ways to celebrate 5.0 over the next year, and we want you to be part of that.
Now, on to the show. We are taking a look at the November 2019 solicits, so you can start planning now for books to be picking up ahead of your Thanksgiving holiday. Give it a good listen. If there is a book that sounds interesting, be sure to tell your local comic shop so they can order you a copy.
We do have our Pick 3 selections for next week, sponsored by the great people at Clint’s Comics. Our picks for next week come from the big two publishers, which doesn’t really narrow down the list that much as Cullen and John attempt to guess Jerry’s selection.
Remember, you can find Cullen at Rose City Comic Con in September next weekend. He will be at booth 1003, a.k.a. the Hero Initiative booth, with special guests Ryan Sook and Liam Sharp.
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.
