Episode 21.1 – Comic Matters – Longevity

Click here for Episode 21.1!

On this Episode Jeff and Russell discuss the idea of longevity and how it differs from canon, the ongoing struggles of availability, how companies view longevity, continuity, iconic characters, community impact, and the changing nature of literature and comedy.

Early on we mention Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story. It’s a great but somewhat surreal movie.

The list Jeff talks about is on IGN, click here if you want to have a look. How much of the list being dominated by DC and Marvel is a function of Marvel and DC being dominant in the industry?
