003: X-Men, And Why Can't Superman Save Everyone?
This podcast is audio-only. In episode 3 of The Escapist's Comics and Cosplay podcast, we talk about X-men comics and movies (and whether or not they're any good), the convoluted soapy nature of comic plots, why Superman can't save everyone, and what we're reading. Warning: Bryan Singer dissing occurs.
I started reading Astro City. It is good. I like it mostly for the past reason you described it, being like watchmen but not so grim and bleak. I then got in an argumenent (the fun kind) with the owner of the comic book shop about how Allen Moore is probably miserable. I end up winning because well Moore is .
But anyhow you got one guy to start reading Astro City. I am going to make my friends read it too.
