Episode 74 | Civil War II is just not fair (and Book to Comic adaptations)

This week’s episode was recorded on June 5th, 2016.

Guests Nick and Kate join Mike to talk about comic book adaptations of prose books and whether or not we really think they’re good or not. How do you deal with narration? Where does prose description become art? And why, oh why, did they adapt Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep the way they did? This and a small discussion about creators who lose their sheen after leaving the Big 2 on this week’s episode!
