Do you miss going to the comic shop every week? Or miss the smell of a freshly printed comic book? Endlessly litigating who’d win in a fight – Hulk or Superman - with your friends?
Well, we do, too. That’s why we’re looking to bring some of that comic shop culture back to you with our rendition of that comic shop chatter we miss. Part book club and part informal hang out, join us for the first ever Comic Shop Talk: An Inclusive Fan Meetup. We’ll be hosting an informal virtual gathering of fellow comic fans to discuss this week’s books, share recommendations, talk about what you’ve been reading, and more. Special comic guest Ken Lashley will be joining us to discuss the release of MARVEL’S VOICES: LEGACY #1 and other upcoming projects. Check out this page for more information and instructions on how to register.
The Great Fan Debate: Tom King vs. Jason Fabok
12:00 PM ET - March 5, 2021
Who would win in a fight, Hulk or Superman? Who portrayed the most evil Joker of all time? Who had the best bat suit, and why?
For decades, comic book fans have spent their time in front of the counter and around long boxes debating controversial fandom questions such as these, but what do the creators think? In an age where nearly every comic creator grew up reading comics it’s only natural they’ve got opinions of their own, so let’s hear it from them! Be a part of the conversation as host Amanda Wirtz sits down with DC creators, Tom King and Jason Fabok, as they debate all things Batman!
