This podcast is audio-only. NOTE: Next week's podcast will be audio and video. Having conquered technical difficulties, we're back with a brand new podcast. With Jack Kirby's family's lawsuit against Marvel back in the news, we talk at length about precisely what the dispute is, what a successful verdict might mean, and why it doesn't matter what his family's motivations are for trying to secure copyright control over the characters he created. We also talk a bit about what Gary Oldman said in his recent Playboy interview, and examine whether or not there's any truth to his complaints.

The cast this week: Ross A Lincoln, and Marla Desat.

Remember, the audio-only version of The Escapist Podcast is available for free from both our RSS feed or our iTunes page!
