286 – Faith: Hollywood and Vine

Faith: Hollywood and Vine

We sneak one more superhero comic into our Best of 2016 megaseries as we read “Faith: Hollywood and Vine” by Jody Houser. In her first solo book, Zephyr has left her team, moved to LA, and is looking for some crime to fight only to stumble into a big plot. David and Andy talk about the experience of being introduced to a whole new universe of continuity we didn’t even know existed, the role of body types in cape comics, and positive representation. Plus, Andy’s stoked about the half-scale BB-8 and there’s some spoiler-free discussion of Netflix’s new Iron Fist show. This week’s comic starts at about 15:00 in.
