Special #15 - “Dank Check” show art Special #15 - “Dank Check”

Doctor DC Podcast

Broadcast from elsewhere in the Multiverse, a version of the show that combines the content of The Doctor DC Podcast with the format of Blank Check! This week, Reid and Richard continue The Pod HallowCast - their miniseries on the DC works of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale - with the pair's most vibrant and possibly most undervalued work, 1998's Superman For All Seasons. It's an introspective, quiet, and visually chonky take on Superman that seems to do everything right.
