CCL Podcast #310 – Why Now Is The Perfect Time For A Who’s Who Update!

Every day we are getting more and more information on the DC “reboot” coming in September. Most of the titles have been announced (both officially and unofficially) as well as the creative teams. What struck me is the reintroduction of many characters for a new generation of readers such as Voodoo, Grifter, Resurrection Man, Swamp Thing, John Constantine and to a certain extent Captain Atom, Firestorm and Mr. Terrific. That got me thinking that I don’t even know a lot about these characters (or have forgotten) and that’s why I think this is a perfect opportunity for DC Comics to bring back Who’s Who series of comics to help all of us understand these “new” characters and their surroundings. I’ll say this, Marvel certainly has been the forerunner in this category for the past few years releasing periodic updates to the Marvel Handbook with a focus on the major Marvel events and the live action movies.

Also, on the show today, I go over what titles I plan on picking up (so far) and some great upcoming releases from DC Comics and Dark Horse including BPRD: Plague of Frogs HC Volume 2!!!.
Cheers!

PS Early in the show I guess that Tim Drake would return as Red Robin in the Teen Titans. Glad to know I was right!
