Megan Purdy reads WUVABLE OAF

The Reboot Comic Book Club is back in action with a reboot of our own. This week Chase Magnett joins Joe Schmidt as co-host. Together they will be offering new segments and expanded coverage. Don't worry though, the heart of this show isn't changing and they'll continue to host guest from throughout the comics industry to discuss projects and join in a book club. The very first guest of the all-new, all-better RCBC is none other than Megan Purdy who is here to discuss her work on Women Write About Comics and Ed Luce's Wuvable Oaf!

Megan has been the editor-in-chief of Women Write About Comics from its inception and has developed the site into one of the absolute best being published today. Her staff of editors and writers contribute a smart collection of pop culture criticism, interviews, and discussion from a wide variety of perspectives. She also has some mystery projects in the works that we try to get some details on.

She chose to discuss the delightful Ed Luce's just as delightful comic Wuvable Oaf: Blood and Metal. This second collection details the adventures of Oaf as he wrestles in his alter-ego, revels in heavy metal, and goes through a variety of other adventures. It is absolutely charming and we hope our discussion brings that across.

We also cover two new comics in our review segment. 

God Country #1
Written by Donny Cates
Art by Geoff Shaw
Colored by Jason Wordie

Deathstroke #10
Written by Christopher Priest
Art by Cary Nord
Colors by Jeromy Cox

Finally, in The Comics Canon, the other new segment, these two take on whether a certain comic deserves to be considered a classic of the medium. This isn't for obvious cases like Watchmen or Maus. It's defined for well-loved or forgotten comics that might need to be reassessed. In the very first installment Kingdom Come, created by Mark Waid and Alex Ross, is up for discussion.

We hope you enjoy the new segments and format, and tolerate the new co-host. This reboot, rebirth, and restart ought to provide the best version of this comics podcast yet.
