For this 3-hour mega podcast, the contributors of Sequart’s latest book, Humans and Paragons: Essays on Super-Hero Justice, got together to reflect on their essays.
Have super-hero comics become more nuanced at exploring social issues than what we see in politics? What do the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Frank Miller’s Dark Knight actually fight for? Would real-life super-heroes be a threat to society? What can we learn about justice from talking more about Wonder Woman and Luke Cage? Why do people look to super-heroes in times of adversity? Listen to the contributors discuss these questions and many more, and share your own reflections, in an experience that is simultaneously a preview, a continuation, a great way to spend the commutes, and most of all, an inspiration.
STARRING: Paul Jaissle, John Loyd, Jaime Infante Ramírez, Ross May, Daniel Gullotta, Rebecca Johnson, with Ian Boucher, Colby Pryor, and Michal Siromski.
