It’s Episode 007!
Inside this episode! Can Heroes For Hire #2 live up to the superb Heroes For Hire #1?! Does Wonder Girl’s One-Shot have any significance whatsoever…and did we like it or hate it? We discuss diversity in comics and talk about Vaneta Rogers Newsarama Hot Buttons Part 4: Superhero Diversity piece as well as some thoughts by the always exceptional David Brothers of 4th Letter and Comics Alliance. Sue points out the irony and frustration that we’re still discussing these issues the day before Martin Luther King Day and nearly 50 years after the civil rights movement. Plus Sue and Maddy try to keep me from killing myself mid-cast thanks to depression over the state of diversity in comics. We introduce a new ongoing feature – thanks to the suggestion of listener Tim Miner of 5 Minute Marvels – CHICK OF THE WEEK…but Greg Burgas is going to want to cover his ears for who we pick for our first ever “chick of the week”. Here’s a hint, she’s currently got an online petition going to bring her back (Ragnell also suggests you write to DC – which I agree with). You can read more gushing about her here, here, and here, and buy this, this, and this if you want to explore her further. Plus, as always our picks of the week!
Next Week! Tune in next week for reviews of Wolverine & Jubilee #1 and Young Justice #0.
