The High Five Podcast Episode 41 – Brian Michael Bendis At DC Part 1 !

On today’s episode of The High Five podcast, I’m taking a look at some of Brian Michael Bendis’ DC work, none of which I had read until this week!

George Marston’s Newsarama story about Bendis’ Jinxworld imprint moving to Dark Horse is what spurred me on to read these books in the first place. It’s also where I learned that he was no longer DC-exclusive starting earlier in 2021.

Going back a bit, Bendis leaving Marvel for DC was such a big deal that George Gene Gustines wrote about it for the New York Times in 2017.

Also, big thanks to Carole over at Comic Book Treasury for creating the Bendis Superman/Action Comics Reading Order page that I used to start this journey.

Here’s the very informative interview with the writer himself conducted by Joe Grunenwald for The Beat.

Before wrapping up, I also mentioned the debates between Bendis and Kirkman about creator-owned comics, which you can read a recap of on CBR from 2008!
