  1. Since this episode was a compilation, I feel like I should be making this comment back on the episode the feature originally appeared in, but I’m lazy, and am not going to search that entry out (and, let’s face it, neither are you), so here goes:

    “Lana Lang, that hot red-head that everyone goes out with in high school.”

    Why didn’t I get the memo? I WISH I’d gone out with a hot red-head in high school!

    Or a hot blonde, or a hot brunette….

  2. Man, Shag was snarkier back then, wasn’t he? Just like most sitcom characters, he’s mellowed over time. He’ll be growing a beard and wearing a tweed jacket next, just like Fonzie.

    Rob is eternal, like a river.

    Fun compilation!


  3. The Len Wein story (and the many mentions to his work on the JLA and the characters) were specially poignant given his passing this week. Good stuff.
    Was there something off about the sound quality? Loved the content, but couldn´t help noticing.

    1. Yeah, I couldn’t help notice that Len Wein stuff, either.

      I certainly noticed that Shag sounded like he was talking through a tin can on some portions.

      Unrelated to the above: Boy, Rob really doesn’t hold back when he hates something, does he? Wasn’t “find your joy” supposed to include NOT just ragging on stuff (after all, there might be a Snapper Carr fan out there…. Probably only one, but you don’t really want to alienate him, do you?)?

  4. Man, now I have to start listening to old episodes of the Who’s Who podcast. How am I going to find the time? Sheesh! “Thanks” Rob and Shag. 😛

    This compilation was a great idea. Just loved it. More clip shows, please. Plenty of great teams to choose from. but also maybe some non-team themes?

    Sword and Sorcery: Arion and Warlord for example.
    Who’s WTF?: Brother Power The Geek, Inferior Five, Angel and the Ape, Sugar and Spike, you get the idea.

    1. I’m so late adding my comment to this podcast!
      When you asked for suggestions for other clip shows, my mind immediately jumped to “Who’s Who Morts” – the Lamest Heroes, the Daftest Villains, the Most Pointless Supporting Characters, the most Backwater Planets and Least Useful Technology.

      Actually… that could be another show – the Planets and Technology categories: they’re kind of the underdog classes of the Who’s Who books. Perhaps you could do an audio guide to the planets of the DCU via their Who’s Who entries.

  5. Great clip show. Thanks for reminding me of Xum’s Who. I’ve recently realized what that means, and I’m still trying to find where they are on-line. Are they all available on-line? Xum seems to have read the same DC comics that I did back in the 70s!

  6. Best intentions a given, but I’m not sure if condolences to California, Texas and Florida are entirely welcome from The Fire and Water Network. As for “having” to go back and listen to old Who’s Who episodes, it’s easily one of the best shows on the network, so cue an invisible violin. I prefer not to employ emojis, so is HTML enabled on ?

    No podcast worthy of having an audience lives or dies by the whims of the Snapper Carr fanbase.

    The McDonnell JLA piece is underrated. Much harder to draw 22 characters in action poses on an uncluttered spread with a unifying theme than to just do a crowd of stiff waist-ups.

    You know, if Rob likes that Aquaman profile so much, I don’t see why he doesn’t just commission Chuck Patton to do a recreation. I’m sure it could be had for a few hundred bucks. Probably less than $200 if he just wants the central figure, based on what his sketch covers go for on CAF. Double that and he could get a sweet ink job on it, too. Trust that I’d hit him up for either a #230 recreation or I’d at least get him to do The Marshal (since he didn’t do interiors on any of the Martian invasion issues.)

    Xum’s Whos are featured in the GALLERY section of many episodes of the podcast’s blog entries, and they’re great!

    1. “but I’m not sure if condolences to California, Texas and Florida are entirely welcome from The Fire and Water Network.” Why?

      1. It was a joke. Fire? Water? There was supposed to be a forward-slash “sarcasm” as well, but I think the page read it as legit html coding when I tried to post it.
