    Introduction to the Board as a wrestling fan

    Welcome aboard! From a pure ego perspective it always makes me feel good hearing about someone enjoying Titans and other podcasts I've been involved with over the years. I'm feeling nostalgic because we're wrapping World Cast up with #100 and I'm stepping back from podcasts other than an occasional show here and there. Yesterday I was reminiscing about Titans. Anyway, glad we were able to steer you to PWO

    Plan on starting Hickman's Fantastic Four run soon. It's going to be my starting point for exploring the 2010s

    World Cast: A WCCW Review

    No plans as of now, but I'm sure we will get together for occasional special releases. I do have tons of ideas for future projects, but it all depends on being motivated. Having lost a lot of enthusiasm for wrestling doesn't help

    World Cast: A WCCW Review

    I chose "Heaven" by the Talking Heads for a few reasons, one being the title suggests "Heaven Needed a Champion" and its relation to David. The version I used is from the film Stop Making Sense, which was released in 1984. But it's mainly a personal song, one I envisioned as the final song on the last episode of Titans (symmetry with episode 0, which used "Road to Nowhere" by the Talking Heads). Since we are wrapping things up soon, I wanted to use "Heaven" as an outro, and this seemed as good a spot as any for it

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Hope you're right but everything always seems to come up Vince no matter how horrible WWE is

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Sad thing is everyone has probably long ago signed waivers absolving WWE of any responsibility and they can do whatever the fuck they want. They have the governor in their back pocket too

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    Yeah, My Marvelous Year is one. Others I've been listening to... The Epic Marvel Podcast: been listening to this one since the start. Each episode looks at a different Marvel Epic collection, which generally reprint runs that haven't been reprinted a ton (or at all) over the years, such as Englehart and Brunner's Dr. Strange, the "drunk Tony Stark" Iron Man, late-60s/early 70s Hulk, Master of Kung Fu, etc. Tons of episodes The Comics Canon: good show that looks at a different classic comic book each ep, ranging from Marvel and DC superheroes to indie titles and everything in between Into the Weird: just started this one a few weeks ago. Alternates between looking at 70s Dr Strange and other " weird" 70s Marvel characters, like Ghost Rider, Morbius, Man Thing, etc

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    Ok, I'm officially back as a mega comic book fan after basically taking the previous decade off. The final nudge was signing up for Marvel Unlimited a few weeks ago. Holy fuck, what a service! I started by diving into the 70s, something I've thought about doing for years. I grew up in the 80s, and eventually read a ton of 60s Marvel, but the 70s was mostly a blind spot. Starting with Tomb of Dracula, Englehart's Captain America, Man-Thing, and Starlin's Captain Marvel (also reading scans of Kirby's The Demon). Having a blast! Also dipping my toes into some new stuff, although just the retro type books that have come out in the last year or so, like Fantastic Four: Grand Design (telling the FF story from the beginning as if everything had been planned out from start to finish from day one, with cool Kirby-style indie art by Tom Scioli) and Spider Man: Life Story (telling the story from 1962 forward with the characters aging in real time, so Spidey is in his 70s by the end). Anyone else reading these? I plan on trying out some of the series @SomethingSavage recommended, specifically ones featuring old faves like Thor, FF, Captain America, etc. Also listening to a ton of comic book history pods lately. Who needs wrestling?

    WWE Network... It's Here

    I looked this up earlier - Taker's only had 25 matches since 2010, so he's basically been coming out of retirement for a decade already. Crazy how time flies

    RIP Johnny Walker, aka Mr Wrestling II

    "He had a gang rape accusation on July 9, 1953. The alleged incident, involving a 15-year-old girl, took place at Sandy Beach on the South Shore of Oahu. Newspaper reports from the time list John Frances Walker, a gas station attendant at a Waikiki service station, being one of nine men involved a gang rape. It was a bad crowd he was hanging with, and something long forgotten about. Walker was arrested only for this rape, but four of the nine men were charged with another rape four days earlier of a 14-year-old and two others in rapes of two other teenage girls earlier the same day on Sandy Beach." Only one use of "alleged", for the record
