EP 134: Astro City Vol 1

Listener Request Month begins with some pain with this week's selection from Bill of The Great Albums podcast.

One of those mass confusion episodes ensues in which Dad only understands 2/3 of the first trade of Astro City: Life in the Big City

Patrick attempts to explain to Dad how Kurt Buisek , Brent Anderson, and Alex Ross constructed the comic as a love letter to all their favorite tropes, and concepts in the genre of superhero fiction. 

Dad's take was this universe was the result of some 35th century post apocalyptic world in which the Samaritan arrived to save mankind.....

Yet both father and son can agree the concepts are deep and Anderson's artwork is strikingly detailed enough to keep you glued to the pages.

Next Week :  Listener Juan from Texas finally gets Dad to read Sin City
