This week, Paul and Matthew are joined by Logan Grendel, who talks with them about V for Vendetta, dystopian stories, and the ethics of violence. (It all ties together, we promise!)
“Dog man” Logan Grendel is a writer, artist, and activist born and raised in New York City. He is also a lifelong fan of comics, fantasy, and dystopian tales of all kinds. His own photo/graphic novel creation Harlequin’s Song was completed in 2006, and has never seemed more timely.
Urban Dog Care NYC is Logan’s dog-walking business and main source of dog stories, about which you shouldn’t ask unless you have several hours to spare. For a brief, humorous look at his findings, read his new book Putting Paws to Pavement.

*This episode was originally recorded a few weeks ago, so don’t be confused when we refer to everything we said about Luke Cage “on last week’s episode.”
In this episode, Paul and I finish our discussion of the issue of identity in superheros, focusing on the first episode of Luke Cage along with related questions of identity and race in the upcoming Dr. Strange and Iron Fist.
