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.

2010 Wonder Woman & Martian Manhunter Commission by Sal Velluto



I don't know why Sal Velluto isn't getting much work anymore, as he's an awesome penciller in the Neal Adams vein who really hit his stride when paired with inker Bob Almond on Black Panther, who I happen to have featured on a solo Velluto sketch I picked up nearly twenty years ago. I wish the owner of this piece had offered up a larger scan, as it features two of my favorite super-heroes ever! The Amazing Amazon wishes the Alien Atlas a happy 61st birthday today!

Podcast: A Final Adventure of Wonder Woman (1985)

Episode #4

Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or Internet Archive

This episode finally, irrevocably breaks from its previous incarnation as a podcast! A seasonal/bi-annual show no more! No longer only coming out only when an issue of Wonder Woman '77 corresponds with the episode number! This edition, we cover an entire story arc, encompassing the entire (very brief) run of Wonder Woman's first female writer, Mindy Newell! That's "Tropidor Heat" & "A World in Chaos!" & " To Everything a Season..." from Wonder Woman #326-328 (July-December, 1985) plus the concluding 48-page story of the original volume, "Of Gods and Men," written by Gerry Conway! Don Heck draws most of this swan song to the Pre-Crisis Amazing Amazon, with a little help from Pablo Marcos. We also read excerpts from magazine articles and letters columns contemporaneous to the end of this era, and look forward to the next, which signals the changes coming to this show in celebration of the 75th anniversary year!

In the meantime, do check out Wonder Woman: Warrior for Peace: A podcast that explores the history of Wonder Woman on page and screen. It's currently five episodes deep chronologically covering the Golden Age, Iron Age, New 52, and 1970s TV show!
