As comic book readers get older, some may tire of the safety rules superhero stories have when published by the big two DC and Marvel Comics.
Writer Jay Faerber has written for the big two on titles like DC's Teen Titans and Marvel's the New Warriors, but these days seems happiest focusing on his own original ideas. Joining his soap opera hero series Nobel Causes is a new hero team book from Image, Dynamo 5 featuring the illegitimate superpowered children of Captian Dynamo
We'll also talk about Jay's love of detective fiction in books and TV, and his original gumshoe creation, Dodge's Bullets.
