WHO’S WHO: The Definitive Podcast of the DC Universe, Volume VII

In the land of the E, the Elongated Man is king.
Firestorm Fan's  Shag just wrote a review of the VII volume of Who's Who. This is relevant, well, firstly because Shag is a friend of this blog, and secondly, because that issue covers D to E of the DCU phone book, which means the Elongated Man gets his bio there.

The fun thing is that the rest of the D-E characters are not famous enough to top Ralph on the cover, but still make a very nice crowd. I'm particularly fond of the Enchantress and Dolphin (talk about fan service, the water must be really cold!). I tend to prefer silver age independent heroes over the rest.

Ralph's entry is okay. It's always nice to see Carmine's art, and his characterization is spot on; however, he could have put a little more thought into it. It feels like "I'm old, life is short, waving with a weird spaghetti arm. Whatever. What's next?".

There might not be big shots like B Batman, S Superman or L Lex Luthor (I guess D Darkseid appeared in the previous issue) but the chat in the comment section of the post is very animated anyway.
