Advertisements are everywhere! We see them on TV, on social media, in newspapers. It’s not hard to find advertising in anything. Not so long ago, comic books were home to many unique and interesting advertisements, and very regularly. From Gumby and Pokey to Sea Monkeys, blow up dolls to karate instruction videos, The Panel Discussion, in full force for the first time in over 2 months, is here to take you on a trip through memory lane.

In a day and age where Marvel and DC are heralded as the be all end all, it’s difficult to stand out without those two machines behind them. However, a few have. This one in particular, a Dark Horse standout, is Hellboy. Created and drawn by Mike Mignola, Hellboy only debuted in 1993, and has since become a popular mainstay in comic book lore. Listen to a few books and get excited for his new movie due out April 12th, 2019!

Episode 31 - What A Revolting Development This Is

Comic book talk is back! Join Matt Johnson, Chris Gullo and Graig Knowlton  for a weekly "table for 3" on comic books and the culture around them! Listen in as all three give their different takes, points of view, and interests in an all new, all original podcast.

Reed Richards. Susan Richards. Johnny Storm. Ben Grimm. Together, they are the Fantastic Four. The original Fantastic Four. Marvel’s First Family. While many have filled in roles from time to time, like Ant-Man, She-Hulk, Black Panther, and many others, the identity of the original four can never change or be replaced.

Matt and Graig discuss the lineage of the Fantastic Four, and what the first family means to them. The franchise has survived numerous failed movie attempts, hurting it’s popularity over the last 15 years, but with Disney’s acquisition of Fox, and the regaining of their properties, the Fantastic Four and their deceptively great rogue’s gallery should regain their former glory as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby would certainly hope.

This week’s character is Captain America’s trusted sidekick and most dangerous enemy, Bucky Barnes a.k.a. The Winter Soldier. James Buchanan Barnes has evolved a lot over the years, and for the longest time, he was one of the select few characters that had remained dead and unused in comics for a long period of time, until a 2005 new run of Captain America brought Bucky back into the fold. Listen to some Bucky and TWS stories and character analysis.

One aspect of story telling that never grows old and stale, and helps a character stay fresh and interesting is growth. Characters can evolve over time, while maintaining familiar qualities over the duration of their existence. It makes for interesting Comic Book Discussions, like this episode entails.

Our choice today, is The Batman, debuting in 1939, Bruce Wayne and Batman have long been one of a handful of most recognized super heroes. Non-Comic Book fans could pick him out of a crowd. Incredibly popular, and if anyone has read a modern comic of him, know how complex of a character he is. Johnny Townsend joins for this episode, and alongside Matt and Graig, read stories from different time periods of Batman’s publication history and pick out noticeable differences and similarities between eras.
