The boys dip their toes into some intellectual waters this episode.
Topics of discussion: revisionist history in regards to Cold War aggressors; Television, Comic Books, and the difference between utilizing the strengths of one medium in regards to another and just straight up copying one medium to another and not respecting how one audience experiences it opposed to the other; and that age old debate between Diversity and Xenophobia in the comics medium.
Going deep this week.
