Episode 11: The Conway Corner Podcast Crossover Pt 1.

Greetings constant listeners.  Welcome back to Head Speaks and to my 11th Episode: The Conway Corner Podcast Crossover Pt 1.

This is a very special episode where we celebrate one of the greatest comic creators on the earth... Gerry Conway.  The genius who gave us classics as The Death of Gwen Stacey and created wonderful characters such as Killer Croc, The Punisher, Killer Frost, and most importantly... FIRESTORM!!!!!!

Before I go any further, I want to give special thanks to Michael Bradley of the Superman and Batman podcast for getting this whole thing under way and to Shag Mathews over at Firestorm Fan and The Fire and Water podcast, for helping keep us under control and organized.  Great work guys.... You're doing the work of the gods (or something).

Mr. Conway has recently written a post on his Tumblr page regarding DC and their Creator Equity...  You can check out Mr. Conway's Tumbr at: 

A few weeks ago, he wrote a story called: Who created Caitlin Snow on #TheFlash? According to @DCComics, nobody.

To hear more about this, check out this episode and read Mr. Conway's Tumblr.

Also this episode I do a Character Profile of Mr. Conway.

As an aside, I recommend checking out The Fire and Water Podcast episode 125, where Shag and Rob have an excellent interview with Mr. Conway regarding Creator Equity and the current issue with DC Comics (and as I say in the episode, when we say DC Comics, we mean DC Entertainment, the suits and big wigs, not DC Comics editorial (such as Didio, Johns, and Lee)).

But back to me and Head Speaks....

After that in What's In Head's Long Box, I review Firestorm The Nuclear Man, issues 1 and 2 (both written by Gerry Conway and penciled by Al Milgrom).

Finally in Where's Head Going?, I talk more about the Conway Corner Podcast Crossover (#ConwayXover).
