080 - SMALL PRESS SUPERHEROES! (W / JON LAIGHT)

Jon Laight (Brethren Born, Comichaus) joins the Awesome Pod this week to join their discussion about Superheroes in the independent and small press scene. They talk about the view of superheroes in the small press, the difficulties in creating original superhero stories, diversity when it comes to character creation and the perils and responsibilities of small press superheroes. Also theres some talk of the big two, more Valiant love, an alarm goes off, Groots gender gets discussed, the announcement of a new ACP facebook discussion group and some fantastic books you need to be reading are given a shout out. Its a suprisingly grown up and thoughtful conversation, but dont worry theres plenty of silliness to be had.

Great stuff to check out this week: Jon Laight, Brethren Born, Sleeping Dragon Press, Not My Shame, Planet of the Daemons 2, 4 Kids Walk into a Bank, Black Mask Comics, Savage, Valiant Comics
