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.
