Meanwhile… In A Time Before Dan DiDio’s dismissal and Covid-10, Michael Bailey of The Fortress of Baileytude Podcasting Network still joined Diabolu Frank in apocalyptic visions for the 2020 comic book industry. Spoiled the twist ending? Before then, we cover Superman artists* like Jon Bogdanove & Ed McGuinness, Greg Capullo, Helspont & Wildstorm in the New 52 DCU, the fall of John Byrne, and the Speculator Bust of 1993…

*Carlos Meglia was the awful one we couldn’t name.

Meanwhile… Mr. Fixit & Diabolu Frank talk “Worlds Of DC,” meaning the DCEU and DCTV and DC Universe app and a little bit of actual comic books, hence the rare use of the term “Worlds Of DC” because nobody actual calls DC media by that name. Included are Harley Quinn, Birds of Prey, the Berlanti/CW/Arrowverse’s Crisis On Infinite Earths (especially Black Lightning,) Wonder Woman 1984, Batman/Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited, and Black Widow.

DC Special Podcast: The Joke That Keeps On Killing

Meanwhile… Mr. Fixit, Illegal Machine, & Diabolu Frank look at the controversial 1988 Batman: The Killing Joke prestige format one-shot that has gone from one of the most revered works of a new wave of mature readers books to a (mostly) direct-to-video animated film and an albatross around the neck of DC’s attempts at outreach to modern women not in refrigerators. While the comic and flick are a touchstone, this is less an individual critique than a debate about the treatment of prominent females in comics. But bro-ier than that sounds. Beyond Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, we also talk Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello, Rafael Albuquerque, and more. We also go broader than Barbara Gordon to other imperiled heroines like Supergirl, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, Cassandra Caine, The Huntress, Bat-Girl, Batwoman, Superwoman, and yes, Sansa Stark. If you’re not up to date with Game of Thrones or Orange Is The New Black, this episode may be even more problematic for you than usual.
