    Year of the Cheetah: Priscilla Rich in The Golden Age

    Year of the Cheetah: Priscilla Rich in The Golden Age

    Frank returns after another year & a half’s sabbatical to find… the Wonder Woman: Warrior for Peace podcast had returned from its own year of absence. To celebrate our both running again, Angela has an opening cameo to foreshadow her continuing appearances in a series of Cheetah-centric episodes to tide you over while Wonder Woman 1984 keeps being delayed. I bet Warner Brothers wish they’d just released the sequel back in November of 2019 as originally planned. But we’re more interested in prequels today, as we travel back to the earliest stories of the original incarnation of the Cheetah. We cover every one of Priscilla Rich’s published Golden Age stories set on Earth-Two, including Sensation Comics #22 & 36, Wonder Woman #6, 28, 196, & 230, Comic Cavalcade #11, Crisis on Infinite Earths #5 & 9, and DC Special #3. Most especially, we survey the Wonder Woman newspaper strip from November 20, 1944-March 30,1945, the most exhaustive and involved version of the initial Cheetah saga.

    Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (2017)

    Noble Pyrates All

    This episode, Frank covers the first major arc of the William Messner-Loebs run, “Exile in Space,” which ran in Wonder Woman vol. 2 (1987 series) #66-71 (1992-1993.) Since nobody actually refers to the “Space Pirates” story by that name, we’ll use the story title from #69 instead. This is one of Frank’s favorite legends of the Amazing Amazon, featuring art by Paris Cullins and a host of inkers, with an especially epic series of Brian Bolland covers. This time, the show will run without commercial interruption.

    Whom Gods Destroy featuring Chris Claremont

    Whom Gods Destroy featuring Chris Claremont

    This episode, we look at a pair of the very few Elseworlds out-of-continuity “imaginary stories” with Wonder Woman as a billed star. First we adapt previous coverage of 2003’s The Blue Amazon one-shot special by Randy & Jean-Marc Lofficier with art by Ted McKeever. The core of the episode is a fresh look at 1996’s Superman/Wonder Woman: Whom Gods Destroy prestige format 4-issue mini-series by Chris Claremont, Dusty Abell and Drew Geraci. As a special bonus, coverage includes excerpts from a 2016 interview with the writer discussing this project.

Who cares if you didn’t care very much for Lyle Waggoner, for those of us who did we care about him. You did not need to say that you didn’t care very much for him.
