Shortbox Showcase #32 - Anti-heroes in Comic Books
Professor Alan & Emily spend time reviewing recent feedback, and also talk about all of the Vertigo books they have both been reading.
Then they talk about the concept of the anti-hero in comic books and the rest of pop culture. They mention Dirty Harry, Sam Spade, The Punisher, The Equalizer, Deadpool, (hail) Doom, and Rorschach. And probably a few others.
