On this week’s episode of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!:
- We say thank you to a true titan of the comic book industry. Neal Adams passed away on April 28. So much of what we know in comics comes back to Adams’ drawing table. Like Batman? The Batman you know started with Adams and Denny O’Neil. Like seeing creators get recognition for their characters on the silver screen? That credit goes to Neil. The introduction of Tim Drake as Robin sporting a new costume? That’s all Adams. We could spend multiple shows discussing Neil and his legacy in comics.
- We finally get a chance to wrap up Planet Comicon Kansas City. What a weekend! As always, Kansas City steps up to support the Hero Initiative. We had a blast hanging out at our table with artist Richard Pace. And we are already making plans for Planet Comicon 2023 next March.
- We look at 52 #35 with the new year starting out with a bang. As in the bang of bodies falling from the sky. Once again, we find ourselves asking why anyone would ever live in Metropolis.
- We have our Pick 3 selections, sponsored by our friends at Clint’s Comics in Kansas City.
