Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #186: The Longbook Hunters — The Golden Age

In this edition of The Longbook Hunters, Nick and Greg venture into Elseworlds with a look at the 1993 book “The Golden Age” by James Robinson and Paul Smith. This story traces the post-World War II lives of DC Comics’ earliest superheroes, including Green Lantern Alan Scott, Liberty Belle and Johnny Quick. With a cast of dozens (maybe hundreds), it’s a bold and risky book that exposed the Hard-Traveling Fanboys to many new ideas and characters. Does the narrative hold up? 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.
