The book club discussions return after a year-long hiatus with this look at two similar but divergent Elseworld tales from DC Comics. Featuring powerhouse art teams (Mignola/Russell and Jones/Jones III) with undeniably appealing high concepts (Batman vs Jack the Ripper & Batman vs Dracula), both books stand as templates for how to do Elsewhere stories right...but take completely different paths getting there. Throw in a mystery third book and you have a talk covering such topics as the lasting impact of Zorro on Batman, Elseworlds vs ‘What Ifs?’, scary sexy body horror heroics, the refreshing naïveté of Bruce Wayne, red herrings & red sons, 19th century Gotham newspapers running front page stories in Kryptonese, and more.

Back on the show for the first time is comics multi-hyphenate Klaus Janson to talk about his new creator-owned series "Sacred Creatures" with Pablo Raimondi. Greg got a chance to talk with Janson regarding "Sacred"'s unusual approach to labor division (he and Raimondi are co-writing the series as well as alternating art chores) and cover other ground about the series over a decade in the making. All that, plus find out what Janson has learned from working in such close relationship with not only art powerhouses like John Romita Jr. and Andy Kubert, but also from up-and-coming pros during the years spent as both an instructor at SVA and expert-at-large in seminars at Marvel and more.

In May 1978, 44 comics professionals (ranging from Frank Miller to Jim Shooter, Paul Levitz to Steve Ditko) gathered at Neal Adams' Continuity Studios in order to form a more perfect comics union. The seeds of that meeting would blossom almost forty years later into...nothing. But why? Why has no attempt at organizing the comics creative workforce ever been successful? Greg enlists the help of comics creator (and friend of the show) Samuel Teer to try and figure out the answer to that very question in this nearly two-hour conversation!
