Happy Holidays, one and all, and welcome to the third 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.
This time out I head back to Shag’s office in The Fire and Water Bunker to talk about another story from the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes Holiday Special 100 Page Giant from DC Comics. On the way I go through some of the songs on my 2018 Christmas playlist because
originally this was supposed to be one special so the fact that the conversation with Shag is really short doesn’t work anymore because putting out a 25 minute special would throw off the rhythm of a seven part series holiday music is always fun to go through. Then, I finally arrive at Shag’s office and we talk about the Supergirl story from this anthology. We also discuss the version of Supergirl that appears in this tale (including how inappropriately she was presented when she was introduced in 2004) and how this particular Kara was treated before Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle turned her around.
Next Time: I head off to grab something to eat and maybe run into a podcasting duo that is not actually part of The Fire and Water Podcast Network. Also…Batman.
