And now, a classic CGS BOMC episode from the archives
The book is the (now out of print, I think, as it has been replaced with an Omnibus) Animal Man Volume 1
. Which has the first 9 issues of the Morrison/Grummett/Truog series.
Unfortunately the original discussion thread for this episode is long lost to a crash several forums ago. But as a part of the new BOMC category, I wanted to plug some classics to those who may have not listened back to CGS this far. And I would invite others to do the same.
I had already emailed the guys a few times in their first year, but I think it was this episode that got me posting on their original forum for the first time. It is a really fun and contentious discussion. Part of the fun is how polarizing the most esoteric issue of the book-- #5 "The Coyote Gospel" was in the room. That even though this was a series I loved, I enjoyed that not everyone I was listening was going to be on board, too. They had some big reactions, and were going to stand by them. I think this episode really helped distinguish some of the tastes and episodes of the different hosts for me. The episode also has a great guest-- comics blogger and academic Geoff Klock. And early BOMC classic, and worth going back for. Listen here.
I started reading Animal Man with the second issue and hung in with it until the end.
Classic CGS moment.
