Welcome back to another episode of Epic Comicast! The ECC podcast is dedicated to bringing the world of geek directly to your ears and this week they are at it again. TC and Karina don’t discriminate as they highlight all forms of geeky media, whether it’s movies, TV, video games, or comic books, and this episode they brought a certified DC Comics’ classic to the show.
There has been a lot of focus on the present and future of the DC Extended Universe in recent months. Warner Bros has proclaimed that change is on the way and that there will be an injection of fun and levity to their future films, after a year of releases that polarized audiences. DC Films’ head Geoff Johns is known for the optimistic tone he brought to the comics and there certainly were other creators that contributed DC Comics more hopeful interpretations, that future DC movies aspire to emulate. None were more influential than the legendary epic “Kingdom Come,” a story about an alternate future where DC’s classic heroes are forced out of retirement, after the world has fallen into disarray.
This week Epic Comicast dedicates the episode to breaking down and reviewing Mark Waid and Alex Ross’ seminal work. ECC has been disappointed by Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad so far, is there a blueprint for the future for the DCEU found within “Kingdom Come”? Sit back and get ready for another must-hear installment of the most epic podcast around.
It’s finally here! This week Karina and TC break down DC’s Kingdom Come (1996) written by Mark Waid and illustrated by Alex Ross. This was our first time reading this story and we were both surprised by how great it was. Visit us over at www.epiccomicast.com to check out more of our podcast episodes! We hope you enjoy!
