On this week's episode of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!:
- John and Jerry are headed to O Comic Con
today. They will be hosting multiple panels, looking for good deals
on the show floor, and hanging out with so many of our friends.
Find us in Podcast Alley at booth A-9.
- With a pre-recorded show last week, we didn't get a chance to
reveal our Pick 3 for books that came out this week. Never fear, we
have those picks for you this week, plus we have our picks for new
books coming out on July 18.
- DC announced this week that G. Willow Wilson will become the
new writer on Wonder Woman later this year. We discuss the
impact that could have on the title and comics in general.
- We saw a new image this week from the Shazam movie!
Looks like Billy Batson likes his cola drinks. We talk about the
movie and the potential endorsements to be had.
- Jerry saw Ant-Man and the Wasp earlier this week, and
shares some non-spoiler comments about the movie. (John saw it
between the recording of the podcast and the release of the
podcast, so feel free to ask him now his take on the movie!)
- Finally, we say goodbye to a comic legend. Comic creator Steve
Ditko passed away last week at the age of 90. As the co-creator of
Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, the Question, Hawk & Dove and so many
others, Ditko's impact on comics will never be forgotten. John and
Jerry share their thoughts on Ditko and his legacy.
