Independent comic artist Pete Doree has created an amazing tribute story titled “Stan & Jack”, which puts Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the roles of Fantastic Four-Style superheroes. Pete and I sit down and have a chat about his project, as well as our love of Silver- and Bronze-Age comics from Marvel and DC. We also work through our pain points with the Batman movies as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
My journey into the world of science fiction would not be complete without a deep dive into the topic of the paranormal- unexplained phenomena that may be science fact, albeit at a level we can’t yet quantify.
