Three Panel Contrast

Ep 32 - Criminal & Astro City

August 1, 2021

In this month's episode, the panel goes noir with a comparison of "Criminal: Last of the Innocent" by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips to "Astro City: The Tarnished Angel" by Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson. Topics include the juxtaposition of familiar comics genres with noir detective stories, the bounds of protagonist relatability, and the always tricky relationship between nostalgia and creative freedom.
