Off The Panel Classic - PREACHER



In this reprint of a classic OPP episode, Jamie is joined by his former partner-in-south Matt Johnson to discuss one of their favorite books of all time, Garth Ennis & Steve Dillon's seminal Preacher. Long before anyone thought this story could be adapted to television, Matt and Jamie waxed philosophical about the landscape of American mythology, the power and danger of hero-worship, the role of masculinity in the modern world, and all of the various things that happen to Herr Starr's penis.

#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.
