Into It 72: Sandman (Part 1) with Elizabeth Ferguson Keathley

Elizabeth Ferguson Keathley is back to talk about Sandman, the influential '90s comic book by Neil Gaiman and a whole host of artists. This is only the first half of our discussion, and the episode ends more dramatically than any Into It has before. Along the way we discuss the importance of Sandman to our teenage dating lives, the role of mythology in comics, the problem with Wanda, the failure of sex education, and the inspirations for Delirium.

Into It 57: Midnighter with Jon Erik Christianson

Writer Jon Erik Christianson is on the show to talk about one of the most exciting superhero comics on the shelves right now, Midnighter, which is written by Steve Orlando, with art by ACO and others. Along the way, the topic often veers into the portrayal of gay and queer superheroes in general, a topic that Jon and Elle both have plenty of thoughts about. Plus Prometheus, Dick Grayson, Freedom Beast, and Elle even finds an excuse to talk about the Wrath.

Into It 50: Archie Comics with Chris Sims

Chris Sims makes his long-awaited return to Into It to talk about Archie Comics! The simple rules of Riverdale, the definition of emo, the dangers of punk, the push for diversity (and how far there's still to go). Also why Jughead gets to be hot now, and an explanation for those weird old Christian comics.

At the end of the episode, Chris asks when it will come out and I completely get the answer wrong. Which means the best episode of Movie Fighters ever is already out!
