The best comic book covers of the week – 22 June 2020

Comic books may have taught me how to read, but in a few months they’ll be teaching me how to listen. That’s because DC Comics and Spotify, that hub wherein I run Nirvana’s Heart-Shaped track into overplayed oblivion, are teaming up to produce original podcasts featuring the likes of Batman, Superman and and Wonder Woman.

Led by Warner Bros.’ Peter Girardi – executive vice president of Blue Ribbon Content and of Alternative Programming at Warner Bros. Animation, the first look deal will allow for DC’s money-making best and more obscure characters to star in audio series that will at least allow these characters to shine in new stories. “As we continue to see explosive growth in podcasting around the world, we are thrilled to partner with Warner Bros. to build this slate of programming drawn from the worlds of DC and WB,” commented Dawn Ostroff, Spotify’s chief content and advertising business officer in maximum PR mode.

It’s a neat idea, and one I’m hoping will see some voices from the past back in the saddle as they breathe new life into characters that they made iconic on the big and small screen. After all, who would say no to a new Hellblazer series with Matt Ryan flexing his vocal pipes as everyone’s favourite double-dealing wizard? Heck, give me a new Superman series with Dean Cain back in the red underwear, more Batman Beyond or a solo Joker series with Mark Hamill leading the charge once again as the definitive clown prince of crime! The sky is the limit!

Until my Spotify playlist is fully populated with those hot new adventures, I’ll make do with some fresh comic books:
