In this week's Second Print Comics Podcast, those rabble rousers Marc and Remso break down the Image Comics Revolution - the spark that lit the comic book industry ablaze in 1992 when seven of the top artists at Marvel - Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri, Eric Larsen, Jim Valentino, and While Portacio - left the corporate comic world to launch their own, independent company, Image Comics! They look at the history of the rift between creators and corporate over control of their characters over the years, from Jerry Siegel and Joel Schuster with Superman to Jack Kirby with X-Men, Fantastic Four, etc. to the Image founders of the '90's. Was the Image Revolution a success? How can we rate this act of revolutionary defiance almost thirty years later? Marc and Remso break it all down for the Second Print whippersnappin' fans!

When comics echo the world around us, is it by design or just coincidence? Remso discusses with Marc the moment he realized Nick Fury might not always be the good guy, how he stopped seeing SHIELD as the ultimate force for good, and why you shouldn’t force your friends to commit crimes and brainwash them afterwards…

ALSO! Who is the best Nick Fury and why is it David Hasselhoff? And what exactly is a "Killer Shrike?"

The X-Men were the hottest thing in comics in the early ‘90’s, so much so that America’s favorite mutants could no longer be confined solely to their mainstay title “Uncanny X-Men.” The simply titled “X-Men” , written by classic X-Men writer Chris Claremont and illustrated by Jim Lee, Marvel pulled out all the big guns for this launch. Did the X-spansion live up to the hype? Marc and Remso do a deep dive on this relaunch and and discuss just why the X-Men have been so captivating over the years. They also touch on Magneto's portrayal as sympathetic villain, Gambit's constant sexual harassment of Rogue, a confusing game of telepathic mind control and the weirdness of Mojoworld, and so much more!
