Episode #9 – Thanks for the Support(ing Characters)

What defines a hero? Is it their power set? Is it their origin story? One can argue that the people that they surround themselves with play an important part. The panel takes a look at supporting casts and why they are so essential to fleshing out the world of a hero.

Episode Notes

The Planet

At what remains of the Comics Alliance site (a favorite comics resource of ours during its run), you can still find an article where CA staff let us know what books they wished DC would make next at that time. 

Caleb Mozzocco wished DC would make a book set at the Daily Planet and that it would be done in the spirit of Gotham Central. And that sounds fantastic to us

Read more about Caleb’s wish and other CA Staff dream books here
