View from the Gutters presents The Long Run #8 — Stephanie Brown

The Long Run takes place outside of our normal continuity of episodes, and features table discussion of an entire work or long selection of a series. In this episode of The Long Run we talk about the life and times of Stephanie Brown. For this special episode we read a selection of titles including many issues of Robin and Batgirl, the crossover events War Drums, War Games, and War Crimes, and several one-shots and special issues. A full list can be found here.

Stephanie Brown began as a minor supporting character during the 90s in the Tim Drake Robin series. As the daughter of C-list Batman-villain The Cluemaster, Stephanie dressed up as The Spoiler in order to foil her father’s schemes. As time went on the character garnered a following, and she evolved into a love-interest for Tim, and ultimately a full fledged member of the Bat-family.

She eventually (and briefly) graduated to the role of Robin when Tim quit, but was quickly shuffled off both the team and the mortal coil. Death, however, could not keep Stephanie down and she returned DC Comics, this time as the 3rd Batgirl. Her series received critical acclaim, and ran for two years until Stephanie finally suffered totally existential failure, blinking out of existence in the New-52 reboot of the DCU.

On the next episode of The Long Run we will be reading Hayao Miyazaki’s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, the manga which served as the basis (and as a continuation of) the classic animated film.

Our hosts on this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.


Critiquing Comics #065: “Square” #11

Square #11Ian MacMurray‘s Square #11 is a tour de force of autobiographical cartooning, eschewing chronology, switching up styles, and closely observing himself and the things and people around him. He digs deep within himself and still makes it a fun read. Tim and Mulele discuss.

Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 36: Kidnapping, Sadness And Donkey Shows

CrisisOnInfinideMidlivesPodcastLogo_300x300Gotham premiered on NBC this past week, so Amanda and I talk about the first episode. We discuss what we thought worked, what didn’t, why we don’t want to see all the fan service super villains we got in this first episode… and frankly, why we don’t want to see much more of Bruce Wayne, either. We also compare the show to Ed Brubaker’s and Greg Rucka’s Gotham Central comic series, sometimes favorably, others… not so.

We also talk briefly about the second season premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and how we like that we got an honest-to-God supervillain, an early direction, and an Agent Ward who might not be long for this Earth!

And when it comes to comics, we discuss:

  • Secret Avengers #8, written by Ales Kot with art by Michael Walsh, and:
  • Harley Quinn: Futures’ End one shot, written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, with art by Chad Hardin!

And now the disclaimers:

  • We record this show live to tape. While this might mean it’s a looser show than you are used to from other comics podcasts, it also means that anything can happen. Like discussing the mechanics of M.O.D.O.K. sex.
  • This show has a lot of spoilers. We try to warn you ahead of time, but consider this our blanket heads-up.
  • Amanda and I use adult, profane language, and therefore this show is not safe for work. Did you not see the warning that we talk about M.O.D.O.K. sex? Get some headphones.

Superman Fan Podcast Episode 302 Part II: Superman Comic Cover Dated April 1963: Action Comics #299!

Superman Comic Book Cover Dated April 1963!

Superman Comic Book Cover Dated April 1963!

ACTION COMICS 299, April 1963, was published on February 28, 1963. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein. It featured the Supergirl story in the back of the issue, and was her 9th appearance on the cover of ACTION, and 10th including her solo appearance on the cover of Superman (I misspoke and said that it was her 14th cover appearance, misreading my checklist).

– The 13 page Superman story in this issue was titled, THE STORY OF SUPERMAN’S EXPERIMENTAL ROBOTS, written by Jerry Siegel and drawn by Al Plastino. This story has also been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN vol. IV. It was also Siegel’s 45th silver age Superman story, and his 137th overall for the era. Previously he wrote, THE HELMET OF HATE for SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 68, April 1963, which was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein.

– The 12 page Supergirl story was titled, THE FANTASTIC SECRET OF SUPERBABY II, written by Leo Dorfman and drawn by Jim Mooney. This story was also reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERGIRL vol. II.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 29 titles carried the April or April/may 1963 cover date, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of Comics.

Also highlighted in this episode are the ads and other features in this issue, including the METROPOLIS MAILBAG letter column!

The next two episodes will feature the Superman Family comic books cover dated July 1960, Part I: SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 18, and Part II: SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 48!

Then we will return to the Superman comic books cover dated May 1963, Part I: SUPERMAN 161, and Part II: ACTION COMICS 300!
