Warning: if you’re looking for analysis of story and formal qualities of the wonderful Doctor Fate series written by Paul Levitz and drawn by Sonny Liew, which is worthwhile for that kind of study, you’re going to be disappointed. Instead, @TwoPlai burns up his 30 minutes (haha… more like 50) on a high horse about the appeal of alternatives to DC’s house style, his own tastes and Pierre Bourdieu’s ‘Distinction,’ and Tom King and David Finch’s ‘Batman,’ failing to give Doctor Fate itself its due… again. But @TwoPlai will work throughout the whole week to pay tribute to Sonny Liew’s art style, which he calls "cosmopolitan," and hopes to one day elaborate on why the Doctor Fate story is such a great marker of the future directions of DC superhero comics. Or maybe he’ll never touch on that, and instead, you can chime in with your your opinions to TwoPlai on twitter or email. Either way, thanks for listening, and let’s dig deep!
