The Ironically Iconic Wonder Woman

This episode, Frank offers a rebuttal to Brigit McCone’s “Unpopular Opinions” week article for the site B**** Flicks, which took the character of Wonder Woman to task for the “revolutionary banalities” of her “male-authored feminism,” especially within the context of the 1970s TV show.

The DC Bloodlines Podcast: The Origin of Captain Comet!


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.

“He was a mystery to himself! Why– young Adam Blake wanted to know– was he so different from other people? How did it happen that there was no one else like him in the whole wide world?
Where did he really come from? Who was he? All these questions which might have unsettled an ordinary mind– only served to whet the brain and steel the mettle of the extraordinary youth who, without knowing it, was fated to fulfill a grand and awe-inspiring destiny on Earth– as Captain Comet– First Man of the Future!”

This episode, we explore comics’ first mutant super-hero, a prototype from the Atomic Age who was a mental marvel and physical dynamo! Explore his Strange Adventures from the June 1951 cover-dated ninth issue through the twelfth, plus comparisons to 1987’s Secret Origins Annual #1. You can follow along with our reading at Pappy’s Golden Age Comics Blogzine.

The Second Coming of Robert Kanigher


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3

This episode we look at the brief return of writer/editor Robert Kanigher to the Wonder Woman series following a campaign by Gloria Steinem to return the Amazing Amazon to her roots. Kanigher decided what that meant was that he could recycle his own decades old scripts, so we get to simultaneously cover 1973’s Wonder Woman #207-208, but also the original presentations from Wonder Woman #37 (September-October 1949) #33 (January-February 1949) and #55 (September-October 1952) of “The Riddle Of The Chinese Mummy Case!” “The Four Dooms” and “The Chessmen of Doom” by Robert Kanigher, Harry G. Peter, Ric Estrada & Vince Colletta.

If that’s not enough Wonder Woman podcasting for you, you might also try I’m Th’ Gun’s Happy 75th Wonder Woman: War of the Gods #1 (Sep. 1991) and Power of Fishnets 13: Wonder Woman’s 75th Anniversary

The DC Bloodlines Podcast: Myriad!


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.

This episode looks at the New Blood Myriad and the Cyborg Superman, neither of whom debuted in 1993’s Superman Annual #5 (the only instance of that occurring in the Bloodlines annual event that was specifically created to introduce new characters.) Getting to know Hank Henshaw means going back to 1990 to cover Superman #42, Adventures of Superman #465 and especially Adventures of Superman #466, followed by Sasha Green’s first (and technically last) appearance in Superman #77. Next we get to the actual story “Myriad!” followed by her cameo in Bloodbath Special #2 and her quasi-posthumous mentions in 1994’s Action Comics #696 & 700 plus 1997’s Superman: The Man of Tomorrow #7. Finally, an overview of Frank’s reading of Superman comics overall, as well as the career of Hank Henshaw specifically. This one gets political, so if you’re still hypersensitive about the concept of President Trump, take heed. Bonus: Our podcast’s debut appearance of the most successful New Blood, Hitman! You can follow along with our reading of the annual at Scans Daily.

The DC Bloodlines Podcast: The Vixen is a Lady Fox

Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or directly download an art-tagged MP3 from the Internet Archive

Finally, the DC Bloodlines Podcast reveals its greater scope than just one 1993 event, but rather a mandate to cover the under-served DCU by looking at the earliest published (and especially the unpublished) comics of what was intended to be the first super-heroine series for a character of African decent, Mari McCabe: The Vixen! We start with the aborted 1978 first issue created by Gerry Conway & Bob Oksner from the second Xeroxed collection of “Cancelled Comic Cavalcade” and the rejected early ’80s “The Power Squad” proposal before her accessible comics debut in 1981’s Action Comics #521 and her second team-up with Superman in 1984’s DC Comics Presents #68, plus supplemental material from Back Issue Magazine #40!
