I have a real treat for you this week, folks!  On Sunday, September 4, 2016 I and some of the other Classics Track Irregulars had the honor of sharing the stage with the one, the only George Perez!  Our subject?  Wonder Woman: The 75th Anniversary!  During the panel you'll hear us talking about Diana's history but mainly you'll hear about how George started working on the character and some of the highs and lows of his run.  He also gives an insight on what he brought to the character and the ways he changed her for a new generation.

Seriously...it was so awesome.  I cannot express how grateful I am to Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel for letting me be a part of it.  Speaking of being a part of it, my fellow panelists were;

Towards the end of the episode I mentioned that another panel I was on had been released over at the Needless Things podcast.  You can check out the GI Joe panel by clicking on this link.  Give the Phantom Troublemaker some love.

  1. I was really enjoying this discussion until the Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman hate came up. It's so unfortunate that that kind of talk happens at Dragon Con, a place where I feel like it should be okay to love something.

    I guess I'm a little sensitive about it because almost the exact same thing happened at Gwenda Bond's reading last year. In addition to this panel, someone called me a liar for saying Batman v. Superman had humor so for me, Dragon Con has increasingly become an incredibly isolating and negative place. And it really depresses me because Dragon Con used to be my happy place.

    But, thanks for providing the audio to the panel that I wasn't able to go to (and honestly, am glad I didn't because after that, I probably would have gotten up and walked out). At the very least, I have confirmation on how to pronounced Mr. Perez's name now.

  2. Listened to this one while sorting through social media stuff for (appropriately enough) the next Diana Prince/Wonder Woman Podcast. Tried to listen sooner, but I couldn't get the episode to download on iTunes. Very much enjoyed the discussion, and George Perez is a great guy. I feel a lot of ambivalence toward his run (put me in the "he dumped too much continuity" camp,) but he deserves eternal gratitude for blocking Greg Potter's abominable plans alone. Moving on to the "first eight issues" show referenced a couple times here...
