Zack, Charlotte, and special guest Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou continue our first miniseries on Superhero Subversions with a discussion of Kieron Gillen and Caspar Wijngaard’s Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt (2019)
– Does Peter Cannon make a successful argument for fresh modes of comic creation?
– How valuable is the legacy of Watchmen?
– What kind of creative expression does a letterer bring to a comic?
Please check out Panel X Panel! With no hyperbole, I think it is the best place for high quality comics criticism out there. Huge thanks to Hass for guesting on this episode!
