Our show this week features a very special guest: Ben Saunders, professor at University of Oregon and curator of the Seattle Museum of Pop Culture’s HUGE Marvel exhibit (available until January 2019). Tia, Paul, and Mike have a wonderful chat with Ben and get an academic answer on the GREAT TAPE DEBATE.
This week’s episode was recorded sometime in the past…! Nick and Paul sat down to record a special minisode a short while ago to talk about comics writer Jeff Parker–author of books such as Batman ’66, Aquaman, Flash Gordon, Justice League United, and many many more. The episode was originally going to cover the series “Kings Watch” but expanded to a larger discussion about Parker as a writer, how he approaches licensed comics, reinventing old characters for the modern era, and the “nuts and bolts” of Parker’s style.
