#27: "OF TWO WORLDS - Marvel/DC"



or "Brand Of Science, Brand Of Faith!"

In this episode, we introduce a brand new sub-series to the show: OF TWO WORLDS, where we compare and contrast two opposing concepts from the comics medium. In our first entry, we look at the twin pillars of four-color publishing, Marvel and DC, and the symbiotic way they've challenged each other, cribbed from each other, and drove each other to be better. Why does DC lend itself so well to such a diverse pool of talent? How have Marvel's founders influenced their storytelling to this day? And what is the terrible secret of Planet X... in space?!

To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!

Off The Panel - Superman: Secret Identity



In an all-new, all-different episode of Off The Panel (by gar, it's been a while), Alex and Jamie go deep into the greatest Superman story to ever not contain Superman. Thirteen years ago, veterans Kurt Busiek and Stuart Immonen took the comics world by storm when they introduced fans to an ordinary teenage boy named Clark Kent, who lived in a world identical to our own, right down to the comic book character he was named after. What happened when he discovered he was more like that other Clark Kent than he thought left readers speechless at the time, but the mini-series had faded from the spotlight until the announcement of its follow-up in 2016. Join your hosts as they discuss the power this story still holds, the ability of myth to frame our own lives, and Jamie finally becoming one with the universe.

#26: "Hey Kids,COMICS!" (Ft. Jamar Nicholas)


or "What's so funny about peace, love, and diversity?"

In this special team-up episode of Graphic Novelism, the experts on nothing real welcome their very first guest, multiple award-winning writer and artist Jamar Nicholas! They talk about the importance of comic books in a child's life, the distressing decline of all-ages books in today's adult-slanted market, reclaiming that missing balance, and how Jamar is doing his own part at curbing this harmful trend with his creator-owned title, "Leon, Protector Of The Playground"! Just why is a medium designed to make children happy turning it’s back on them? How important is it for kids to see heroes that look like them? And who IS the mysterious Japanese man living in Jamar’s computer?

To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!
