We continue our talk with Greg Hatcher and dive into the world of comic books and beyond!
We reminisce about Marvel’s 1970s misfit superhero team, the Defenders, and an absolutely batshit tale from writer Steve Gerber that includes stolen brains, absurd body horror, elves with guns, and the soul of an evil wizard trapped in the body of a baby deer!
Plus, we look at the strange turn that comic book scribe Mark Millar’s work has taken in his new series Huck, which is a radical departure from his regularly shocking, cynical and violent stories.
We talk about fan entitlement and the ups and downs of finite vs. ongoing storytelling.
We’re talking about George Lucas, the man who gave us Star Wars… and then kept messing with it. We’ll explore the impact that Lucas’ work has had on our lives, and the post-prequel backlash that he’s still enduring, even more than a decade later.
Does he deserve it? Did we over-react? Show us on the bantha doll where George Lucas touched your childhood!
