Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
Inside this episode! This week we review Heroes For Hire #9, Batman & Robin #25, and Loose Ends #1 (releases 7/13/11). It would be impossible for the hot topic this week to be anything but the runaway success of the Womanthology Project on Kickstarter, and what that could or should mean for the future of comics, both mainstream and not. Chick of the week is an awesomely talented lady that has worked as a writer both for the big two and as the writer/creator of her own wonderfully successful independent series. Also, Maddy sings Mr. Burns entire “See My Vest” song from The Simpsons.
