Join comic book fans Jen Stansfield-Marek and Shawn Marek every Thursday for WORST COLLECTION EVER. It's a comedy show where Jen and Shawn poke fun at their own collection of random comic books, most of which that they bought for a dollar or less. Most of the comics are not really worth anything monetarily but they have to justify their purchase somehow! Email the podcast and talk to the hosts at worstcollectionever@gmail.com!

Vision and the Scarlet Witch #1 (1982) WANDAVISION is upon us so let's take a look at the WrestleMania of Vision/Scarlet Witch stories. Here, Viz and Wanda move to Jersey on Halloween and Vision’s out there sticking his hands in all the kids' bags and what not. They try to copulate but Jarvis cuts them off. Then Samhain (the goat man, not Danzig an…
 
Batman / Catwoman #1 (2020) We start the new year off with the good stuff as we explore the Black Label version of Batman and Catwoman. Tom King’s story structure tends to confuse us so expect a lot of us parsing out what the hell is happening chronologically. There’s Batman and Catwoman having sex while Alfred watches, Bruce Wayne’s Xmas arrangeme…
 
In a very special WCE, Jen and Shawn analyze and review the 2020 motion picture, WONDER WOMAN 1984, directed by Patty Jenkins, starring Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and written in part by Geoff Johns and 12 inch party sub with months-old prosciutto on it. Join us for an awkward celebration of wishes, body swaps and useless warrior armor. Continue the …
 
Justice League America #78 (1993) After jobbing hard to Doomsday, Wonder Woman and Jay Garrick are brought in to shape up the JLA for a peace-keeping mission. Guy Gardner prepares for this by watching FACES OF DEATH V at 7:30 in the goddamn morning. We also got sort of Martian Manhunter dude Bloodwynd melting guns and Maxima wanting to kill everyon…
 
Mephisto Vs. #1 (1987) Marvel’s Satan tries his hand at nabbing the souls of all the virtuous superhero women and actually finds it to be quite easy. All he has to do is get Ben Grimm fired up about tooth decay, have the Human Torch fight John McEnroe and possess She-Hulk to throw Franklin Richards into the gaping maw of Hell. Continue the conversa…
 
The Question #21 (1988) The Question aka Vic Sage hits up his high school reunion only to find out that no one likes him and never did like him. One smashed locker and one weird story about fruit later, Vic finds himself in the midst of a hospital hostage stand-off where the Unknown Soldier demands a heart transplant by gunpoint. Continue the conve…
 
Pitt #6 (1994) Pitt was a joint from the 90s back when no one had a nose. Its about an alien whose race did a reverse Thanos and grabbed some DNA to merge a boy with a space Hulk. In this issue, space Hulk ruins the NYC sewer infrastructure via his careless burrowing. Also, Blade’s brother makes an appearance and an elderly man is brutally sedated.…
 
Defenders #63 (1978) Its our 300th episode! Thank you for joining us here on the podcast each week for the past six (!) years. To celebrate, we jump into a Defenders book where every C-level hero (and Captain Marvel for some reason) got the impression it was fair game to become a Defender. Hulk peaces out pretty quick, leaving Valkyrie, Hercules an…
 
Falling In Love #131 (1972) We get fancy this week as we read from an out-of-date trade of romance comics from DC. And much like most 70s romance comics, this one’s a lark of a story about a girl whose mother can’t stop plucking away her boyfriends. You see, Mom’s 36 but she’s still a looker and can get crunk with the kids of today and their Lil Jo…
 
Captain America #413 (1993) It has been long overdue but we finally make our way back to LADY MALL~! as Cap and Diamondback try to take down MODAM and the Femizons. In this issue, Cap fights a literal who’s who of jabroni villains including Batroc, Stilt-Man, the previously dead Ringer, Man-Ape, Man-BULL and maybe even Man-Puss. Cap gets creepy wit…
 
Detective Comics #682 (1995) Batman’s equilibrium is off and ends up crashing into a movie billboard about a joke-telling crocodile. We also have Communist Moondragon and KGBeast teaming up to shakedown Lucius Fox over a piece of the Wayne Enterprises pie. Non-compliance follows and we get a chemical plant explosion which Robin is overwhelmed by. A…
 
Iron Man #64 (1973) Iron Man participates in Detroit’s urban renewal initiative as he shoulderblocks down decrepit buildings. He is ambushed by Doctor Spectrum and defeats him handily with the entire inventory of a Spencer’s Gifts. Later, while in the middle of cuckolding Happy Hogan, Tony is surprised yet again, this time by a grey monster with te…
 
Weird Suspense: The Tarantula #1 (1975) Its not Halloween until you read a comic about a Dark Ages curse that turns men into tarantula-based men. This week in our FOURTH (!!) book from Atlas Comics, we meet Count Lycos Search Engine, who must now satiate his “unnatural lust” for paralyzed human meat on the regular. Thankfully, comedian Kyle Kinane …
 
Crypt of Shadows #3 (1973) CRYPT OF SHADOWS is a horror reprint anthology that showcases all the anachronistic goodness of 1950s STRANGE TALES stories. Featured here we have: Andy Capp in Hell A card shark getting schooled by Marty Feldman A criminal who can’t tell the difference between whale viscera and sand A corpse falling on top of the first-e…
 
Infinite Crisis Special: Villains United #1 (2006) All of the big heroes are off dealing with the Infinite Crisis so now is as good as time as any for Lex Luthor to get the band back together and rule the world with a Secret Society of Super-Villains. Lex starts off strong by intimidating prison wardens into releasing their meta-human inmates but t…
 
Marvel Premiere #28 (1976) In the most unexpected of occurrences, the sole survivor of a prehistoric race returns from interplanetary exile to lay claim to Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, dropping a huge mountain in the middle of the street. Ghost Rider was going to hit up a Westerns matinee at the New Beverly but now he has to deal with this. Con…
 
Justice League of America #106 (1973) Red Tornado gets so trashed that he gets bounced over to Earth-One and gets a new face from a blind man in the mountains. He shows up to help the JLA and Batman’s like “you can help us but you still suck.” Superman, meanwhile, can’t wait to burn a hole in Reddy’s head. In an ironic twist, Superman’s violent ten…
 
Avengers #185 (1979) Wanda and Pietro go back home to Transylvania to find out if they really were the children of 1940s superheroes as opposed to being a militant mutant’s kids that he left to be raised by the High Evolutionary and a bovine woman. In the middle of the night, a medieval pick-up artist negs Wanda into taking a trip up the Swiss Alps…
 
Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #1 (1954) / Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #2 (1954) Jimmy Olson, Superman’s dumbest Earth friend (I don’t know - he might have a Kryptonian equivalent), continues to ruin Superman and Clark Kent’s lives. In the first story, Jimmy handles a to-do list for Superman while he’s out saving folks in Switzerland. Instead of, you …
 
WildC.A.T.s Annual #1 (2000) We finally got around to messing with a WildC.A.T.s book on the show and its smack dab in the middle of their jabroni period where the original team died and angry cyborgs ran amok. In this (I guess) annual, Grifter’s brother Condition Red returns from the dead only to get returned to dust by Grifter himself. Its not al…
 
OMAC [vol 3] #3 (2006) In the past, OMAC was just a singular dude with an intense mohawk that got his gimmick from a space satellite. In the FUTURE (now), you can make OMACs in bulk by injecting teenage street junkies with OMAC-rich gruel and hope for the best. After an EMP, only one OMAC remains - Kevin Costner’s son Mike - who rebels against the …
 
The Twelve #5 (2008) THE TWELVE is about a group of thawed-out superheroes from the 40s waking up in 2008 to find that there are still NO FLYING CARS! I hear ya man. The one dressed like a Musketeer gets a network TV deal to host a variety show while the Hourman clone is gotten to by high school kids and flies around crying in his surprisingly reve…
 
Manhunter [vol 3] #25 (2006) Kate Spencer aka Manhunter IV goes to a Los Angeles power-pop showcase with Obsidian and some friends. They are ambushed in the club by Sweeney Todd aka Handsome Solomon Grundy. A fight ensues with a psionic straight razor and some slicin’ & dicin’ just as the paparazzi show up. Also, Wonder Woman stops by looking for s…
 
Route 666 #3 (2002) ROUTE 666 follows Cassie, a gymnast on an alternate Earth-like planet, who develops the power to see dead people. She can’t stop inadvertently killing those around her so she gets committed to a sanitarium (welcome home) run by a cannibal Tobias Funke. Tobias eats a dude’s neck so Cassie bolts and ruins the lives of a local sher…
 
Silver Sable and The Wild Pack #3 (1992) Welcome back to the show, Silver! It’s a shame that Silver Sable never really gets more of a shine (pun intended) in the Marvel media offerings. She’s got a unique look and she likes to f*ckfight with her ex-husband Lou Gramm, the Foreigner. She’s also got a rogues gallery (or maybe just a single rogue) feat…
 
Outcasts #3 (1987) OUTCASTS is about the mutant-hating future where they send said mutants to the moon to hang out with corporate Pinhead at a resort colony where the men get gassed to death. The women and their children are harvested for enzymes that let old people live forever and get sexually aroused. Fighting against the status quo are the Outc…
 
Comics’ Greatest World: Hero Zero #1 (1993) In this Dark Horse offering, some kid runs out into the freezing Nevada desert in the middle of the night to turn himself into a giant pastel Iron Man-looking ripoff. It’s not for nothing though as he punches a reluctant dragon and shatters it into pygmy monsters. Also, we meet up again with the Rimjob an…
 
Thunderstrike #13 (1994) Thunderstrike and Luke Cage team up to track down a former college basketball standout-turned-bison monster into the bowels of a barbershop where a rouge S.H.I.E.L.D. operative whips out his Mandroid. We’ve also got some phone-related action as Luke uses the phone inside of a renovated porno theatre while Mephisto (maybe?) …
 
Hourman #8 (1999) DC decided that after a few random JLA appearances that the new android Hourman was hip enough to get his own series. It was a dubious call to some but adding Snapper Carr as a human tether is not going to help you in the long run. In this issue, Hourman isn’t even there so we’re stuck with jabroni-ass Snapper bargaining with demo…
 
Poison Elves #19 (1996) POISON ELVES was a super-indie cult comic about, well, elves that like to dress up like ninjas and seek vengeance against other elves and maybe some humans. In this particular issue, Lusiphur the Assassin Elf drops some serious ultra-violence on a warehouse full of villains (?) that may or may not have killed his father and …
 
Starjammers [vol 2] #5 (2005) STARJAMMERS are a group of Marvel space pirates, one of which is Cyclops’s dad. Since that would be interesting, he doesn’t appear in this book. We do get in its place the tale of a young military cadet disillusioned with what he’s been fighting for as the government raids a planet of Groots to use their seeds for drug…
 
JLA Classified #6 (2006) Booster Gold screws around in Doctor Fate’s tower and accidentally sends a bunch of JLAers and himself to Hell. Instead of being melted and tortured by the Spinner of Lies, fast food franchise owner Etrigan approaches them with the option to work at his burger joint and avoid demon slaughter. Meanwhile, back on non-Hell Ear…
 
Jon Sable, Freelance #16 (1984) Jon Sable (possibly a distant relative of Silver Sable) is a hitman-for-hire that specializes in Godkiller firearms and having sex with jewel thieves in Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes. He’s such a good freelance hitman that he built a physical representation of HOGAN’S ALLEY on the NES in his own home. In this par…
 
The Next #1 (2006) THE NEXT is DC’s stab at a mid-80s low budget teenage movie premise about gnarly dudes and dudettes screwing with the space-time continuum, presented thru the filter of 1999 MTV Spring Break but released in the mid-2000s. The aforementioned teenagers and their translucent dog show up in our timeline, cause a young woman to get hi…
 
Supreme Power #16 (2005) SQUADRON SUPREME is one of those Marvel properties that they keep trying to get to work — and it DOES to a point — but it never feels bigger than you would think it is. Here’s another take on it where Hyperion is raised by the government, Doctor Spectrum makes out with amphibious telepaths and Whizzer has a holographic moth…
 
Comics’ Greatest World: Out Of The Vortex #1 (1993) Oh man, time for some Dark Horse comics! In this offering, an alien in a dope-looking outfit appears out of nowhere in a military base located in Cinnabar Flats, Nevada. “Cinnabar” makes us think of cinnamon which is appropriate because our alien guy (Vortex the Heretic) encounters opposition in t…
 
Team Titans #4 (1992) TEAM TITANS is a superhero team held up by the premise that Donna Troy’s son put chemical additives in our food around the turn of the century and made us all dummies so that we’d accept his genocide campaign. Sounds terrible but on the bright side, this gimmick stuff gave kids superpowers and, in a ploy to stop this tragedy f…
 
Powerline #4 (1988) We kickoff an ongoing experiment during these quarantine times as we go through a random selection of books purchased online from Mile High Comics here in Denver. Hopefully, we won’t have to get thru all of these so that we can resume purchasing dollar comics from physical bins. What we have this week is POWERLINE, a dreary book…
 
The Mighty Thor #246 (1976) Instead of self-quarantining himself with Quarter Pounders and Errol Flynn films, Thor opts instead to disrupt a Latin American revolution because he saw that his buddy Firelord was there. Later, Thor no-sells Jane Foster disrobing and ends up getting hypnotized so overall, not a good time. Meanwhile in Asgard, Balder th…
 
World’s Finest #110 (1960) In the further adventures an insane billionaire and his alien madman friend, Bats and Supes encounter an alien who is trying to run a real estate scheme on an asteroid by miniaturizing attractions across the galaxy and starting up his own Epcot Center gimmick (but in SPACE) Things go from worse to even worse when said ali…
 
We were joined by Rich Franklin: Vice President, Sponsorship for the Portland Winterhawks. We took a look at the team on the ice, but more in depth behind the scenes in regards to business partnerships, selling seats, how the WHL teams work together, & more. We experienced technical difficulties & lost the 2nd half of the conversation, including pr…
 
The Brave and The Bold # 147 (1979) Batman teams up with Supergirl to take down a bunch of sun-worshipping jobbers lead by comic book’s worst person Doctor Light. Somehow, these guys stuck a giant cannon on a Wayne Enterprises satellite when Bruce was taking a dump or something. Also, Batman is SO TOUGH he survives a brief float-around in actual ou…
