We do a listener request special and read “From Hell” by Alan Moore. A graphic novel portrayal of London’s infamous Jack the Ripper murders, this story weaves in the occult, the dirty, and the brutally savage. Moore weave a giant web of conspiracy that leaves us mystified. At least, after chapter four, and if we didn’t get confused on who was getting killed when. Also: don’t read this book in public. People will look at you funny. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
The second episode of our X-Men series drops a big old philosophical, religious, and racial bomb on us with “God Loves, Man Kills” by stalwart Chris Claremont and Brent Anderson. Aside from being prodigal mutants-as-metaphor-for-racism story, this graphic novel features some of the most cinematic panel work of its day and is a really pleasure to read. Well, except for the grotesque, violent murder of children and babies. Also, Magneto knows how to make an entrance. For information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
