Reed Tucker returns to do some comic book talk, and this time it’s about the creators and writers who all got conned by Marvel and DC – the guys who helped create and develop some of the most iconic superhero characters in pop culture history, and then died creditless and penniless. Guys like Bill Finger, Steve Ditko, and Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, who came up with some of the original ideas for Batman, Spider-man, and Superman. Reed shares their stories, and also talks about the state of the comic book industry today, what DC can do to up their game when it comes to competing with Marvel at the box office, and which other comic book characters should be developed for the big screen.
