Did you guys notice how last year, I stopped posting podcast episodes around mid-Spring, and didn’t start back up again until late August/early September? And did you guys notice that I pretty much did the same exact thing this year? Weird, ain’t it? Well, I’ll try to make up for it with three days of episodes in a row. Tomorrow’s episode — yes, I’ll be posting an episode tomorrow AND Saturday — will be all about our experiences with Toonami, but today’s episode is a little look at the Marvel and DC Comics animation blocks, back when they first premiered. Well, it ends up being more so a look at the shows we love (Young Justice) and the shows we hate (Ultimate Spider-Man), but…well, the interstitial bits aren’t huge conversation makers like Toonami’s. Not counting DC Nation shorts, which are bloody awesome, and are kinda like backdoor pilots that can be picked up for full series. New Teen Titans is making the jump, and I’m glad about it, even though the show will be a pure comedy with…wait, what? Okay, a little less happy now. In any case, after this week of backlog episodes, we’ll be officially back with FRESH CONTENT. Fresh like clean towels right out of the dryer. Podcasts! Articles! Who the hell knows what else!? See ya tomorrow, and sorry for the episode’s sudden end.

P.S. The song at the beginning is Uncaged Czarina, and it serves as our theme song. And so we won’t have to pay $10 every time we use it…Free Royalty Free Music by DanoSongs.com.

P.P.S. New episodes are returning to both DC Nation and Marvel Universe soon! Are you hyped for new episodes of current shows. And brand-new series like Beware the Batman and Agents of S.M.A.S.H.? Or are you just shaking your head at some of this stuff? Tell us on Twitter, Facebook, via email, or in the comments below! We’re back for the school year, baby!

Nothing much to say here. Tomato is back and talking up a storm. I return to being the quiet one who laughs a lot (while I’m there at least. I leave partway during Part Four). TetrisDork butchers the names of a few characters, writers, and artists. Dragonpiece is confused about what is going 70% of the time. ToonFaithful listens to us and tries to put in his humourous two-cents. And Don East is Don East.  And we all get into a debate over the Teen Titans animated series, and other random stuff. All-in-all? Normal podcast episode. But if you must know…I didn’t edit this much. Schoolwork mixed with general laziness means that I ended up just cutting the initial conversations we had before we did the podcast proper. So you don’t get to hear me freak out over dying several times in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. or at Tetris playing a high-frequency buzzer for several seconds. I apologize for that. But you do get to hear all our flubs, so that’s a plus. I don’t know when the next WRSP podcast is going to be, but I do know that we need a better name for it than that.

This was originally supposed to be a full podcast that was a Part 2 to the first one. However, it turns out that none of us knows the meaning of the term “Lightning Round,” since the entire Buyer’s Guide had to be divided into four parts, each 40-60 minutes in length. It’s probably for the best though, since you guys get a better idea about how we feel about each title. Each segment covers one week: Part 1 covers Sept. 7 (aka today), Part 2 covers Sept. 14, etc. The last two parts will be posted on Sept. 21st, so be on the lookout for that.

During these first two parts, Tetris is talking through his iPod, so some of what he says near the beginning of the recording is covered up slightly by static. This clears itself up later on, though. Also of note is the fact that I speak for more than a minute…in fact, there are points where I just go crazy and don’t shut up, especially when we talk about Rob Liefeld. Toon is there throughout the first part, but chooses not to say a word until the second. TomatoSurprise and Shadows of Thot were supposed to be on these parts, but…things came up for both of them. The former recorded his thoughts on these first 26 comics though, and you can listen to them below.

As promised, we got together to share our feelings on the whole DC Universe reboot. In Part One, which was recorded on the 26th, we focus on the entire experiment as a whole, debating the good and bad aspects of it, as well as our initial feelings when we first learned about the reboot and how they have changed over the past few months. If you are more interested in hearing our thoughts on the individual comics, since they all happened to hit store shelves (both physically and digitally) today, then just wait until next Wednesday for Part Two of this “joint podcast thing.” The outro is the unused theme for a 60s Batgirl series.

On a general podcast note, we plan on merging Notaku Diaries and Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast into a single entity with the WRSP name come September…which means that the SDCC 2011 ‘cast back in July was technically the first episode of this new project and this is the second. Of course, all the episodes of Notaku and NAOCP that haven’t been posted will be posted eventually, hopefully before the fourth episode of WRSP.

P.S. – Since Tomato never gave me that link, I had to find those DC Comics sales charts myself.  And here are the charts from January to June 2011 (couldn’t find July or August). So yeah, you can see why they took such a gamble with this relaunch. And while it seems to be a success so far, we just have to wait and see how it does in the long-run…man, I say far more in the production notes than I do in…almost every podcast episode really. Also, here’s the ad that DC made to promote the comics…yeah, no comment there.
