Off Panel #122: Event Horizon with Brandon Burpee

On this week’s bonus episode of Off Panel, my pal Brandon Burpee joins the to talk the greatest event comics of all time and our thoughts on the Marvel Legacy one-shot. We share our take on the one-shot’s quality (with the review portion ending 15 minutes in), whether it made us want to read more Marvel comics, Brandon’s related conspiracy theories, the appeal of the upcoming Rogue & Gambit series, where we are with event comics these days, whether events are old hat, how the way comics news is handled has impacted events, what makes a good event, before we close with a discussion about our ten favorite event/weekly comics ever.
