Episode 10- Deconstructing Superheroes

On this episode, Billy and Eric tackle the topic of deconstruction and how it’s been applied to the superhero genre.  We talk about the mechanics of deconstruction and examine major comics like Miracleman, Watchmen, Dark Knight Returns, etc, that have thoroughly critiqued its genre, and the subsequent influence and responses.

Oh, and Blue Beetle’s dick too, in case this is all too high brow.
