Happy Holidays, one and all, and welcome to the fifth 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 on over to the office of Xum Yukinori to discuss the Batwoman story from this 100 Page Giant. Things are a little fuzzy for me right when I got there and I’m not quite sure what happened but eventually Xum invited me into his office and we got to work. We switch gears from all of the Christmas talk and discuss a story set during one of the nights of Hanukkah. Kate Kane is approached by a hooded man at a diner, which leads her having to become Batwoman to take down a supposed legitimate corporation, which is secretly running an illegal gun operation. Xum and I also discuss Batwoman as a character and reveal our thoughts on how she was portrayed in the recent CW crossover.
Next Time: I stick around Xum’s office and we chat about the Harley Quinn story set on New Year’s Eve!
