Comic Book Universes! What is it about a shared universe as the setting for different stories appeals to us so much? Why do we love the Valiant Universe, Marvel Universe, and DC Universe? (plus all the others too!) We discuss the good side, and the bad side of this phenomenon that occurs mostly in super hero comics. In addition to that topic at large, our usual banter and verbal sidesteps.

We broke from the Valiant talk for an episode to talk about comic books in general.  We each chose a subject we wanted to discuss, and this prompted our conversation.  You get Three topics for the low regular price of One podcast!  Sean brings up Longbox digital comics, which leads into a discussion of digital comics in general.  Sides are chosen.  Lines are drawn.  Average Joe talks about the distribution of comics, and we discuss ways that this art form that we all love could grow and flourish in the future, and get into the hands (and hearts) of the general public.  Chiclo brings back the fun and guides us through some good old geeky discussion of comic book villains.  We choose our favorites, and talk about this whole "anti-hero" thing that seems to be all the rage with super villains these days.
