Welcome to the latest edition of our look back at the first Hey Kids, Comics! story arc, Comic Shop Confidential. This episode revisits the weighty topic of religion and religious faith as portrayed in comic books.
From the Cult of Brother Blood to the whole question of how faith affects story telling in comics, Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston provide a thoughtful overview of the role that religion has played in the realm of comics. Even ancient religions no longer practiced have their place as evidenced by the classical pantheons that run rampant in the pages of Marvel and DC comics. This and more is discussed in the latest exploration of the early issues of this show.
