Podcast: The Mystery of Nubia

Episode #10


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.

By all indications, 2017 needs a podcast dedicated to Queen Hippolyta's "second," "other," "dark" daughter who debuted on November 7, 1972 in Wonder Woman #204, so we're "Introducing Nubia!" The soul sister of the Amazing Amazon went on to appearances in Wonder Woman #205-206, including a solo back-up story, plus cameos in Supergirl #9 and The Super Friends #25 before vanishing from comics entirely for twenty years (and actually closer to a quarter century if you discount a single page of one of those comics.) Despite barely escaping 1973 in comics, Nubia managed to make appearances on television and in toy form when that was an extremely rare accomplishment, and her origin has a massive impact on Wonder Woman's own. Nubia was a contender, and we argue that she still matters 45 years later on this episode!

Nubia is one of the least heralded but most valuable creations of Robert Kanigher, and possibly his single most important contribution across twenty years as a writer/editor of the Amazing Amazon (depending on how much credit you extend him on Wonder Girl.) The world is still waiting for Nubia to be fully embraced as a key component of Amazonian lore! For more on Nubia, check out my 2012 article on her, newly revised with fresh scans to replace the busted embeds Comicvine left me with.

Podcast: DC's Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special (2016)

Episode #9


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.



Along his way to covering DC Comics' special issue released to commemorate the Amazing Amazon's three-quarters of a century in action, Diabolu Frank lost his way and stumbled into so many outtakes from the 75 Birthdays-- The Secret Origins of Wonder Woman episode recording sessions that it became a second special its own self.

Podcast: The Ironically Iconic Wonder Woman

Episode #8

This episode, Frank offers a rebuttal to Brigit McCone's "Unpopular Opinions" week article for the site B**** Flicks, which took the character of Wonder Woman to task for the "revolutionary banalities" of her "male-authored feminism," especially within the context of the 1970s TV show.

Podcast: The Second Coming of Robert Kanigher

Episode #7


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.

This episode we look at the brief return of writer/editor Robert Kanigher to the Wonder Woman series following a campaign by Gloria Steinem to return the Amazing Amazon to her roots. Kanigher decided what that meant was that he could recycle his own decades old scripts, so we get to simultaneously cover 1973's Wonder Woman #207-208, but also the original presentations from Wonder Woman #37 (September-October 1949) #33 (January-February 1949) and #55 (September-October 1952) of "The Riddle Of The Chinese Mummy Case!" "The Four Dooms" and "The Chessmen of Doom" by Robert Kanigher, Harry G. Peter, Ric Estrada & Vince Colletta.
