Ed and Producer Bill go EEEEVIL with Ed's villain GOAT: The Four from Warren Ellis and John Cassady's Planetary! A deep dive into a true modern comics masterpiece.


THIS WEEK ON PATREON: HBO's WATCHMEN! Coming soon: The Greatest Cartoons Of All Time!

Planetary is a series that dissects the morality, logic, literary history, and cultural impact of the entire superhero genre.

In this context, Ellis and Cassady craft their version of the Fantastic Four into one of the most unnerving antagonists ever put to page – which also serves as a potent indictment of superhero writers and fans alike.

All this thematic jiu jitsu, but also just an exceptional story of mystery, adventure, espionage and hope. Please, for the love of god, go out and binge-read this series.
