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.

The winner of a Facebook Poll on our page against Blue Beetle, this week’s episode deals with Alex Summers, the middle child of the Summers Boys. An on-again, off-again X-Man, Havok has been apart of a few different teams in his day, including being the Leader of X-Factor. Havok has had an interesting history, and we are excited to be able to cover his character.

Also, though it was not discussed in this episode, this was Chris Gullo’s final episode with The Panel Discussion. Although his schedule prevented him from spending more time with us, Graig and Matt want to thank Chris for his time on the show, and being a part of comic book talk. We look forward to someday having him rejoin us.

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!

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.

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.
