In case you never check the links to the right of these posts (and, seriously, WHY don't you?) then you might not be aware of Aquaman Shrine or Firestorm Fan. Ah, nuts, who am I kidding? Y'all probably came FROM those sites to visit this one.
Aquaman Shrine is managed by the amazing Rob Kelly, who also crafted the banner for this site, while Firestorm Fan is run by Shag Matthews. Both fellas are stand-up guys and have a wonderful banter that comes through nicely in their conversations about comics on their podcast.
If you haven't heard of them, though, be sure to check out those sites AND their tandem podcast. The podcast can be found on iTunes, just search for "Fire and Water Podcast." Occasionally on their podcast they do a review of the 1980s Who's Who series. In their latest podcast they cover the seventh issue of the original Who's Who. Included in that issue are entries to the original Doom Patrol and Elasti-Girl drawn by John Byrne as well as an entry to the then-contemporary Doom Patrol drawn by Erik Larsen. I gave a brief overview of the entry to Elasti-Girl waaaaaay back in 2009.

Happy 100th to "Waiting For Doom"!
