Happy Holidays, one and all, and welcome to the first day of The Fortress of Baileytude Podcasting Network 2018 Holiday Spectacular! DC Comics recently published a 100 page comic titled World’s Greatest Super-Heroes Holiday Special through their distribution deal with Wal-Mart. I liked the cut of the comic’s jib and thought it might be fun to get together with a few friends to discuss the seven stories inside. The Irredeemable Shag, one of the co-founders of The Fire and Water Podcast Network, invited me to their giant new headquarters, called The Bunker, and so Eliza (my assistant from Views From The Longbox) and I hopped into the car and headed north.
No, Andy, it wasn’t to ski.
During the first part of this seven part extravaganza I meet up with the previously mentioned Irredeemable Shag and after he saves me from a sticky predicament (you’ll have to listen to see what that’s about) and shows me around the facility we head to his office to discuss the first story in this 100 page Giant. Actually, we talk about the Wal-Mart 100 Page comics in general and then talk about the first story in this book. This one is a Flash tale where Barry Allen has to deal with a prison riot on Christmas Eve. Who is behind such a dastardly act and which unlikely ally shows up to help out The Flash? Listen and find out!
