On this week's episode of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!, we have writer Douglas Wolk on to talk about comics. In particular, we should focus on Marvel Comics. Well, truth be told, we should discuss all of the Marvel Comics. Or maybe, just maybe, we talk to Doug about his upcoming book called All of the Marvels, due to hit bookstores in October this year.
What started out as a father-son reading project turned into a five-year odyssey to read 27,000 Marvel comic books. From A-Force to Zombies Assemble, and all titles in between, Doug has read, scanned, re-read, memorized panels, and absorbed more information than even the Watcher knows about. Doug shares all of the details of how he went about this project.
Now even though the book does not come out until October, we want to make you aware of a special opportunity to pick up a signed copy of All of the Marvels. Our friend Katie over at Books With Pictures in Portland has a sign-up list to pre-order a copy and have it autographed or even personalized by Doug. Maybe we just put this out to our listeners, but if anyone wanted to get us a holiday gift this year, click the link above!
We are still taking recommendations for our summer reading project. For 2021, we want to read three mini-series of 4-6 issues in length. We want to read one from Marvel, one from DC, and one from any other publisher. Our request is that the issues or collection is readily available so we can read it and have others join in on the fun. Please get your suggestions to us by May 28.
We also review our Pick 3 selections, sponsored by our friends at Clint's Comics. Jerry makes some bold predictions to accurately predict everyone's selections this week. As always, stop by your local comic shop and pick up your books!
