Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. And if there’s anything that fanboys love, it’s debating what book is better than another book or which character is “cooler.”
Enter Countdown, a monthly episode where Greg and Nick will each give a top five list and debate the merits therein.
In this edition, the boys tackle a topic near and dear to their hearts — the best stories ever published by DC Comics! Well, as you’ll hear, “best” is really a word to describe their favorite stories. There’s no attempt at objectivity, because this list is all about Captain Planet’s favorite organ: heart! Which stories made the cut?
