It's the age old argument among comics fans: Team Lee or Team Kirby? Or Team Ditko?! On the podcast, we debate who does more of the heavy lifting; the comic book writer or the comic book artist? We discuss writer-artist collaborations like Chris Claremont and John Byrne, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro. And we ask a question: Is a book like Watchmen one of the greatest comics ever published because of its images or because of its ideas?
You've been had! Ya been took! Bamboozled! Led astray! So why don't you check out our 30th anniversary tribute to Spike Lee and Denzel Washington's 1992 epic, Malcolm X?
Neal Adams was a legend in the comics industry and the second most influential comic artist behind Jack Kirby. From his take on Batman, to his run on books Green Lantern/Green Arrow with Denny O'Neil and Dick Giordano, to his role as a champion for creator's rights; his impact was undeniable. On April 28, 2022, Neal passed away at the age of 80, and we pay our respects to him on this week's episode.
Nobody trusts anybody anymore as we discuss John Carpenter's 1982 sci-fi/horror classic, The Thing.
What comic book fan doesn't love a good doppelgänger? You know, characters like Reverse Flash, Bizarro, The Abomination, Venom, The Squadron Supreme, and Black Adam?
