The Podcast of Oa Episode 124 – Comic-con Wrapup

The Podcast of Oa is back with episode 124 and our coverage of Green Lantern news coming out of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.   To kick off our comic book talk co-hosts Phil Bova and Myron Rumsey talk about the formal announcement that Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp are the creative team on a relaunch of Green Lantern with a new series that sees its debut in November.  Breaking news that the Green Lanterns series has been cancelled works its way into the conversation as Myron and Phil speculate on the fates of the Earth Lanterns.  The pair talk about the latest issue of the Darkstars saga in Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #48.  Phil and Myron provide a Retro review of the classic Green Lantern: Emerald Dawn II miniseries from 1991 before responding to listener feedback.

Deconstructing Comics #523: Who is Wonder Woman?

Wonder Woman: Earth OneOf course she’s been around for decades, but when it comes to how the character’s been presented, there’s always been a tension between her feminist qualities and the pinup-y ones. Is she here to empower women or excite men? Can it be both?

This week Emmet and John are here to talk about the genesis of a DC marquee character and how she’s been presented by various creators, with an emphasis on Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette’s Wonder Woman: Earth One, and a useful comparison of Wonder Woman comics and the movie Mad Max: Fury Road.
