    Episode 28 - Cosmic Odyssey

    In this episode, Chris welcomes Ray from the “Fans Without Borders”, “DCTV Squadcast”, and “The FliteCast” podcasts to look at one of his favorite comic books, “Cosmic Odyssey”.  Jim Starlin and Mike Mignola craft a tale where the universe’s greatest heroes must form an alliance with their deadliest enemy in order to stop a force that threatens to destroy all of existence!  Since time immemorial, the forces of New Genesis and Apokolips have stood at odds for control over the universe. Nothing less than the threat of total cosmic destruction could forge an alliance between Highfather and Darkseid...but that time has come.  Metron has at last unlocked the secret of the mysterious Anti-Life Equation, the very meaning of life itself...throwing the fate of the entire universe into question. The only chance for salvation is a hastily assembled team of the universe's greatest heroes, consisting of Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Starfire, Orion and others...operating under the joint supervision of Highfather and Darkseid. **Reminder: WFTB joins the "Geek Ultimate Alliance" network effective June 3rd.  Search and subscribe to the "Geek Ultimate Alliance" on your pod catcher of choice right now so you are ready for the next new episode.** Ray on Twitter: @TheFliteCast Fans Without Borders on Twitter: @borderlessfans DCTV Squadcast: @DCTVSquadcast Fans Without Borders: https://www.suicidesquadcast.com/fanswithoutborders Marvel Squadcast: https://www.suicidesquadcast.com/dctvsquadcast The Flitecast: http://www.theflitecast.com WFTB on Twitter: @FinestBelievers WFTB Email: worldsfinesttruebelievers@gmail.com Chris on Twitter: @ChrisBalga

    Episode 26 - The Sandman: Season of Mists

    In this episode, Chris welcomes Jeff, who is the public relations manager for the “Spoiler Country” podcast, and creator & co-writer of “The Nightmare Patrol” comic book, to discuss one of his favorite comic book arcs, “The Sandman: Season of Mists”. Prolific writer Neil Gaiman who is accompanied by an outstanding group of artists, continues telling the tale of his most famous character, “Dream”, who in this story must atone for a grave mistake he made a long time ago.  Ten thousand years ago, Dream condemned a woman who loved him to Hell. Now the other members of his immortal family, The Endless, have convinced the Dream King that this was an injustice. To make it right, he must return to Hell to rescue his banished love -- and Hell's ruler, the fallen angel Lucifer, has already sworn to destroy him. Jeff on Twitter: @jhaasinterviews Spoiler Country Podcast on Twitter: @spoiler_country Spoiler Country Podcast: http://scpod.net/tag/spoiler-country/ The Nightmare Patrol on ComiXology: https://bit.ly/2KSutxL WFTB on Twitter: @FinestBelievers WFTB Email: worldsfinesttruebelievers@gmail.com Chris on Twitter: @ChrisBalga

    Episode 25 - Spider-Man: Blue

    In this episode, Chris welcomes back Ryan from “The Batman Book Club” podcast to discuss one of his favorite Marvel graphic novels: “Spider-Man: Blue”.  The dynamic duo of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale explores a critical time in Peter Parker’s life where his “Parker Luck” almost cost him from falling in love with the girl of his dreams, Gwen Stacy.  “It's about remembering someone so important to me. I was going to spend the rest of my life with her." What Peter Parker didn't know was that meant Gwen Stacy would only get to spend the rest of her life with him. This is the story of how they fell in love. Or more appropriately, how they almost didn't fall in love. Welcome to Spider-Man's life. Bad before good. It's kind of amazing.  So to get the girl of his dreams, he'll have to run the gauntlet of the Green Goblin, the Rhino, two Vultures and a mysterious man in the shadows controlling it all. Join the Eisner Award-winning team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale in the story about Peter Parker's first love, Gwen Stacy. Highlighted by the introduction of Mary Jane Watson, it is a critical moment in Spider-Man's life when everything was just coming together - only to fall apart. Ryan on Twitter: @ lower_ryan The Batman Book Club on Twitter: @thebatmanbc WFTB on Twitter: @FinestBelievers WFTB Email: worldsfinesttruebelievers@gmail.com Chris on Twitter: @ChrisBalga

    In this episode, Chris welcomes back Earth-2 Chris from “DC Comics Squadcast” to discuss one of his favorite graphic novels: “Superman: Speeding Bullets”.  J.M. DeMatteis and Eduardo Barreto craft an Elseworld’s tale that shows what happens when a shifting wind current took the Last Son of Krypton’s rocket to Gotham City instead of Smallville.  When Doctor Wayne and Mrs. Wayne find a baby (Kal-El) in some kind of rocket, they take him up and raise him as their own. They name him Bruce and teach him respect for all people. Regardless of social class or race.  One night, Thomas and Martha are gunned down by a mugger. It is at that moment, Bruce discovers his superpowers, but he is too late to save his parents.  As Bruce struggles to understand his new abilities, his city needs a hero to rise and protect it.  Bruce has to decide what type of protector he will be, a vigilante that will use fear or a hero that will inspire hope. Chris on Twitter: @revrim DC Comics Squadcast on Twitter: @DCSquadcast DC Comics Squadcast: https://www.suicidesquadcast.com/dccomicssquadcast WFTB on Twitter: @FinestBelievers WFTB Email: worldsfinesttruebelievers@gmail.com Chris on Twitter: @ChrisBalga
