Stephanie THROWS AWAY the format of talking about comics and just goes with the flow. First up on the list to discuss? Black Widow #1 from Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, and Matt Wilson. They also discuss Vampirella #1 by Kate Leth and Eman Casallos, Batgirl #49 by Brenden Fletcher, Babs Tarr, and Cameron Stewart.
Additional comics discussed include: -DC Bombshells #10 -A-Force #3 -True Patriot Vol. 1 (now available everywhereeeeeeee!) -Ms. Marvel #4 -All-New Wolverine #4 -Spider-Gwen #4 -Sarah C Anderson’s Adulthood is a Myth -Delilah Dirk and the King’s Shilling
Still the best theme tune in all podcast'dom! Another cracking episode, thanks guys/gal - International Women's Day couldn't have been better represented. It was very touching to hear everyone's fictional and real life inspirational women.
Just on the comics stuff I thought Black Widow was a stellar first issue a moment of genius by Waid / Samnee - if you want to get some buzz and momentum behind a character get a dream team and then produce an issue like this, super fast paced leaving ambiguity of the status quo in its wake, does it make you want to pick up the next issue...no, it makes you HAVE to!. It amuses me that I'm not coming off the back of their Daredevil run either as I only read 1 issue of that, but damn if it hasn't made me want to go back and get the lot.
