What better way to celebrate Memorial Day than by making Captain America a Nazi? Or as many keyboard muscles bound internet thugs like to believe, Nick Spencer’s decision to make Captain America a Nazi.
But is it as controversial as people think? And if it’s a gimmick – is that such a bad thing if it gets people reading comics? We talk about all of that with our guest, columnist Marc Lombardi!
Check out an excerpt from the podcast:
“While there are indeed political undertones that reflect Nick’s political leanings (ahem Liberal) I’m here to tell you that it is NOT the end of the world. And there are NO need for death threats. Nick Spencer and Tom Breevort have been interviewed by everyone from your usual suspects CBR and Newsarama to Time Magazine and Entertainment Weekly. Is that a bad thing?”
