The Fire, Water, Burn Manhunter Burn Podcast 2


In September of 2011, Rob Kelly of The Aquaman Shrine and Shag Matthews of Firestorm Fan teamed-up for The Fire and Water Podcast, a weekly program available through iTunes discussing the heroes of their respective blogs and comics in general. To celebrate their first year of successful broadcasting and round out year 1.5 of the New 52, the guys decided to offer an episode of pre-recorded segments from audience members who also happen to have DC-themed blogs. As a regular listener, commentator, and occasional guest, I was invited to contribute, and chose to represent both the Idol-Head of Diabolu and a sister blog, Diana Prince as the New Wonder Woman in a roughly ten minute editorial on what I was thankful for about their recent comics. Mine is the last segment, because you know I brought it like a Sleuth from Outer Space, and who wants to follow the lethal alliterative combo of Alien Atlas and Amazing Amazon?

I recommend listening to the entire podcast, featuring Superman fan Michael Bailey, Siskoid from the Blog of Geekery, Green Lantern Corps conjecturer Chad Bokelman, swingin' singer Luke Daab, and Hawkman man Luke Jaconetti. You can find the 38th episode of THE FIRE AND WATER PODCAST on iTunes. While you’re there, please drop the guys a review on the iTunes page. Every comment helps! Alternatively, you may download the podcast by right-clicking here, choosing “Save Target/Link As”, and selecting a location on your computer to save the file (34 MB).

Your segment was awesome, Frank. Although, I don't know how you manage to spew so much information out while speaking so fast. :)

Loved the Jack Miller/continuity comment. And the one about the power of not having to wear shoes. I hadn't picked up on the blue flame...then again, I haven't picked up a comic in over a year.

I don't agree with everything you said (I'm still hung up on the costume redesign, and seeing J'onn jobbing for other characters doesn't really get under my skin) but you make your case so well I want to agree with you.
