On the Comics Syllabus today, guest co-host Johnny Hall (@johnnyhall3) and Paul (@twoplai) discuss Frank Santoro’s graphic novel “Pittsburgh,” (starting at 12:30) a potent reminiscence and contemplation of Santoro’s immediate family and upbringing in the city.
But first, Johnny and Paul remember Tom Spurgeon, comics reporter extraordinaire and example for us all. After talking about “Pittsburgh,” Paul asks Johnny about his recent re-read of Warren Ellis and John Cassaday’s “Planetary” from DC twenty years ago (at 47:50) and then dive into the recent Dawn of X and House of X/Powers of X series written by Jonathan Hickman and others at Marvel (at 1:07:38).
