167: Wonder Woman Part One

This is part one of a two part episode about Wonder Woman. Diana was the first child born on Paradise Island when Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, molded a child from clay and the gods gifted it with life. Later, Princess Diana would win a contest among the other women of Themiscyra to serve as the Amazon's first emissary to the world of man. Once there she quickly caught the attention of the world with the heroics that would lead to her being known as Wonder Woman. She would become perhaps one the most iconic characters in all of comics, a founding member of the Justice League, as well as a member of the Trinity of Heroes along with Batman and Superman.

163: Miracleman with Bruce

Miracleman was originally just a substitute for Captain Marvel created by Mick Anglo for British audiences of the 1950's, but in 1982 Alan Moore re-invented the character for modern audiences. Originally known as Marvelman, Miracleman went from a second rate impostor to one of the greatest examples of modern comic book heroes in just 16 issues, before being handed off to the wonderful Neil Gaiman for a second re-invention that is reaching a whole new generation of comic readers via Marvel reprints (and hopefully some forthcoming new stories).

159: The Haunted Tank with Bruce

This week Bruce talks about one of the more bizarre concepts from DC's War comics, The Haunted Tank. This is a high concept comic about a World War II tank that is haunted by the ghost of a confederate general from the American Civil War, and it just happens to be crazy enough to work. Over the years the concept was re-imagined to better fit in an updated version of the DC universe, but one thing is constant - a Tank that is haunted is a crazy idea!
