Hey Kids, Comics! #63 - Deconstructing Comics: What’s Love Got to Do With It?

Love interests.

Hollywood certainly can’t let a super-hero live without them!  But how do they fit in to the lives of the super-hero (and sometimes super-villain)?  That is the prevailing question as the middle portion of the journey known as “Deconstructing Comics” unfolds.

Your hosts, Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston, with special guest Catherine "Mrs. JediCole" Houston, take a look at the heartthrobs, flings, lovers, and spouses of comics.  It takes a very special person to love someone who puts his or her life on the line every day.  What are the exaggerated stresses placed on companionship when one or both partners have powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men?  Not to mention long distance relationships that can span galaxies or even dimensions!  Loved ones are a vital part of the super-hero comic and the dynamics thereof will be explored in depth in this special issue.
