Zack and Charlotte complete our first miniseries on Superhero Subversions with a discussion of the Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips spy noir, Sleeper. We cover all 24 issues in the two volumes.
– If the stakes are felt, do plot details matter?
– Is this a subversion, or just what superhero comics are now?
– Don’t ask Charlotte about her Mission: Impossible opinions.
Upcoming episodes in our Molly Knox Ostertag miniseries:
– Her online work: Strong Female Protagonist, Darkest Night, How The Best Hunter In The Village Met Her Death, Lord of the Rings fan comics, Hourly Comics
– The Witch Boy Trilogy: The Witch Boy, The Midwinter Witch, and The Hidden Witch
– Girl from the Sea, Shattered Sea, Dungeon & Dragons: Dungeon Club Vol. 1
