 The Flash Rogues Gallery | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:00:09

The Flash #254 (1977) Its a very rare episode of WCE this week as Jen is NOT here but Shawn’s brother Brian (from the WhatTheHops podcast) takes her place to talk about a Flash book. In this book, Flash gets gaslighted as all hell by the Rogues via a gimmicked award statue while concurrently subjected to hallucinations from an obscure Silver Age villain. And if that wasn’t enough, Barry’s at home and witnesses Iris’s roommate friend conjuring up demons like its POLTERGEIST or something. Doesn’t matter — Crisis ruined everything.

 Nightstalkers | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:44:56

Nightstalkers #12 (1993) Happy belated Halloween everyone! Nightstalkers was a Midnight Sons joint that featured Blade wearing sheet metal long johns and two other dudes - Hannibal King and Frank Drake - who are very similar. One might be a werewolf, the other might be a vampire. Here, the crew heads from Boston to Nebraska to deal with an EVENT HORIZON situation in a prison headed up by a Porter Wagoner-looking dude with electrical powers. Its like Wes Craven’s SHOCKER without the Alice Cooper/Kane Roberts cameos. Also, we have some audio issues in part of this ep due to cat chicanery so bear with us.

 A Generation X Halloween | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:01:20

Generation X #22 (1996) As we approach Halloween, we check in with Generation X out in Vermont to see how they’re doing. As it turns out, Banshee’s eating a hot dog, Franklin Richards misses his parents and the locals are out there parading in Omega Red masks. Also, Emma Frost is being pestered by Nightmare because a scary lady demon chased him out of the Nightmare realm and he needs help to get back in. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew do battle with a bunch of Plastic Man-looking townies in a monster truck.

 JOKER (2019) - SPOILERS AF | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:58:32

Sorry for the delay on this episode but we went to go see Tool this week and we’ve been fighting off those little clay monsters from their videos. We mix it up this week and review JOKER (2019), going SPOILERS AS ALL HELL! There was a lot to unpack in this film so it was worth taking the time to discuss.  Also, we partook in a horror film festival this weekend and you’ll get to hear about it!

 New Gods and Zombies | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:03:52

New Gods [vol 3] #19 (1990) Darkseid’s dad Yuga Khan is coming to visit so everything needs to be just perfect. The zombies need to bring his angry son Orion from Earth so that he can drain his power. And don’t forget to pay the plump necromancer — though you could probably stiff her. Most importantly, make sure the Grim Reaper on skis sucks the lifeforce out of a well-meaning Italian man.  If all goes well, Metron might let you use his cosmic toilet.  Continue the conversation with Shawn and Jen on Twitter @angryheroshawn and @JenStansfield and email the show at worstcollectionever@gmail.com

 New Warriors Vs. Russians | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:59:13

New Warriors #28 (1992) Its the debut of a hip new 90s hero in this issue of NEW WARRIORS! Meet Turbo — the girl who has turbines on her wrists and looks like a Jetsons cast-off. At some point in his book, Turbo shoves her whole hand in a dude’s mouth. Also, Namorita’s got bad intel, leading to a battle with Russian importers/exporters and some winged jobber named Cardinal. I bet he’s from Arizona or something! Continue the conversation with Shawn and Jen on Twitter @angryheroshawn and @JenStansfield and email the show at worstcollectionever@gmail.com

 Haywire | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:44:38

Haywire #3 (1988) This book almost ruined us. Haywire was an early DC “mature readers” offering (pre-Vertigo) about a scruffy dude whose parents get murdered and somehow, he ends up in a psionic suit of armor that looks like a rejected TMNT villain design. Like something Krang would come up with only to have it get dismantled in a single episode. In this particular issue, Haywire squares off against a BDSM-based villain called Nightlash who pretty much beats him like a jabroni. This book’s narrative and character distinction was very confusing; so much that it gave us both anxiety like when you know you can comprehend something but for some reason, you just CAN’T in that particular instance. It made us feel bad. Continue the conversation with Shawn and Jen on Twitter @angryheroshawn and @JenStansfield and email the show at worstcollectionever@gmail.com

 Thunderbolts | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:08:18

Thunderbolts #42 (2000) We’ve never really covered the Thunderbolts which is strange considering they’ve been around for 8000 years. But here’s a tale where they’re on the run, hiding out in the Rockies. Atlas ruins a woman’s bar, Wonder Man destroys a school and lady Citizen V fights Crimson Cowl with plumbing equipment. Its a chop suey of late-90s/early-00s comic book excess that I have no idea how we recovered from.

 Batman Goes To New Jersey | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:07:01

Detective Comics #519 (1982) Colonel Blimp — a zeppelin-based villain dressed like a purple M. Bison — incinerates D.C. while en route to extorting billions of dollars from the government via his battleship theft scheme. Batman sends Dick in red footie pajamas to the Arctic to retrieve the ship while Bats goes to the Garden State to punch a dude in the back of the neck. Somewhere in there, Elongated Man (played by Jeremy Renner) saves the nation’s capital (no he doesn’t) Also, we program a horror movie festival and explore the recent trend of vorarephilia.

 Ms. Marvel | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:06:11

Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) Neither of us had no idea that Carol Danvers once interviewed Diana Ross for ROLLING STONE and wrote a best-selling book on SPACE~! Huh….the things you learn from reading comics. So in the very first issue of her very first ongoing series, Carol Danvers aka Ms. Marvel attempts to stage dive after foiling a bank heist, becomes the editor of a women’s insert for the Daily Bugle and burns the Scorpion alive in boiling acid at a sprinkle museum pop-up in Brooklyn.  Also, we discuss the demise of Jeremy Renner’s app and what it means for the dad rock genre. THESE ARE IMPORTANT THINGS! Continue the conversation with Shawn and Jen on Twitter @angryheroshawn and @JenStansfield and email the show at worstcollectionever@gmail.com

 ClanDestine | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:44:00

ClanDestine #1 (1994) ClanDestine is one of the most jabroni forgotten teams that have ever been produced in comics. I’ve had a beef with this book for simply existing, dating all the way back to 1994. Anyway, a feudal villager made love with a genie and all their kids were immortal and had varied degrees of power gimmicks. Then THOSE peoples kids were born with powers and so on yet somehow, they all remained brother and sister. The current crop is made up of a constantly nude blue giant, a couple lame teenagers and a woman who becomes a cat after Edna Mode in a trucker hat severs her spine. This book had it coming. Also, we weigh in the new DisneyPlus/Marvel shows, the Joker trailer and Jeremy Renner’s Amazon store.

 Machine Man 2020 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:04:53

Machine Man [vol 2] #2 (1984) In one year from now — 2020 — we will have flying cars and sentient robots coming out of our ears as far as the Machine Man future is concerned. Also, Iron Man’s going to look really strange with his Jack-O-Lantern mouth. At least newsies caps will still be in style, much like they are now! Also, we comment on Spider-Man leaving the MCU as well as our recent trip to the Fort Collins Comic-Con.

 Detention Comics (Robin, Superboy, other garbage) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:26:21

Detention Comics #1 (1996) This is an anthology of school-related stories that were not good enough to make it into the 90s SHOWCASE books: Tim Drake beats up Suicidal Tendencies en route to stopping his method-out chum from killing a ponytailed fellow student Superboy makes a heartfelt statement about teacher’s salaries. Guy Gardner does a shot-for-shot remake of Morgan Freeman’s LEAN ON ME (1989) Continue the conversation with Shawn and Jen on Twitter @angryheroshawn and @JenStansfield and email the show at worstcollectionever@gmail.com

 Thor Goes To Hell | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:09:46

The Mighty Thor #443 (1992) Thunderstrike “Thor” hands over his hammer to Mephisto like an idiot so Thor barges into Dr. Strange’s house to have Strange send him to actual Hell to get it back. The problem is that he’s just jobber boy Eric Masterson and he stinks so Doctor Strange has to call Silver Surfer in to distract Mephisto so that ThunderThor can get his stick back and free the real Thor from a Hefty bag. We also give our thoughts on HOBBS & SHAW and even BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY.

 X-Men 2099 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:57:31

X-Men 2099 #19 (1995) We get thrust into the mediocre world of 2099 as Meanstreak helps save Halloween Jack’s casino from Channing Tatum on Bane venom while Krystalin jailbreaks a Jonathan Taylor Thomas-looking brat for cyber-reasons. That would be a great title for a 2099 book….CYBER REASONS 2099. Throw ‘em all in there and see what happens — Spider-Ham 2099, Channing Tatum 2099, Billy Ray Cyrus 2099. Have them all fight for holographic space credits on a pole or something. Also, we give our thoughts on THE BOYS on Amazon Prime.
