On this edition of the Word Balloon Podcast, writer/artist Matt Wagner joins us for an interesting discussion that begins with a question. Will the 20th century superheroes be as easy to retcon and update in the decades to come? How well do modern versions of heroes like The Lone Ranger or Zorro work, without their 19th century settings and tools? Don’t they need the horses and pistols? What about the Heroes created in the 20th century?
Matt asks this question not only about heroes he’s currently working on like Zorro & his upcoming 2010 take on the Golden Age Green Hornet for Dynamite, But Matt asks rthis about Superman and Batman who Matt thinks both still work best in their original 1930’s era .
Also Good stuff about Madame Xanadu, Zorro, And The Green Hornet !
