The Comic Episode
With Wizard World - one of the biggest comic conventions in the country - coming to Cleveland for three days beginning February 20, we sit down with Plain Dealer comics columnist Michael Sangiacomo about the cultural phenomenon of Comic Books.
And we're joined by one of the writers who embroils Captain America, The Avengers, Spider-man and other superheroes in contemporary conflicts, award-winning author and Cleveland native Brian Michael Bendis.
And like many kids, Mike Gustovich grew up reading comic books and dreaming about fighting evil and vanquishing villains. For him, that dream came true, because Mike turned his childhood love of comic books and super heroes into a lifelong career.
