Sidekicked Issue #39 – Are resurrections causing the death of comic books?

January 27, 2016 at 1:51 pm

“It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman! Wait… didn’t he die last week?” Death is a part of the circle of life that comic books turned into a rotating door. While some characters have died and remained dead, many of the more iconic deaths of DC and Marvel comics were followed by resurrections of the same character. Some would argue this cheapens death, others argue that this gives comic books a story tool not found in other genres. Well, this sounds like a debate perfect for the men of Sidekicked to have, so let’s listen for their opinions.

David Gimnich

David is a cool human and the co-host of the Sidekicked Podcast with Vincent Powell! He hates long walks on the beach, but only because there is so much sand. He knows more about Marvel than DC. He is a feminist, regardless of the fact that he is a guy. You haven't heard of him, well he's a big deal in Latveria.

Vincent Powell

He's a mean, lean, nerding machine. A comic book reader since he was 6 years old, Vincent has developed a true passion for the inner-workings of what makes comics great. He has now been drafted by the Uncanny Pome Magazine to unleash his thoughts and views. Along with his partner, David, the two of them analyze the comic book industry for a new generation of fans.
