Savage Symposium: FEAR ITSELF & FLASHPOINT (Part 3 of 3)

Abhay Khosla

The fiery climax of our roundtable Q&A, in which questions about FLASHPOINT #2 are FINALLY ANSWERED, preconceptions are EXPLODED, homes are INVADED, true love is TESTED, and the hope of ALL will fall into the hands of ONE– and in a stunning twist ending, it turns out we were all in monogamous relationships with prostitutes this ENTIRE time.  Who saw that coming?  Well, in my case, everybody.  Everybody saw it coming.  Awwwww.

As part of the 10th anniversary of The Savage Critics on the internet, and in conjunction with the 4-part discussion of Chester Brown’s PAYING FOR IT, a more mainstream-oriented “round-table” discussion of Marvel Comics’s multi-title crossover headline series FEAR ITSELF and DC Comics’s multi-title crossover headline series FLASHPOINT was conducted between April 11, 2011 and June 19, 2011, covering slightly less than the first halves of both series. As each issue of FEAR ITSELF #’s 1-3 & FLASHPOINT #’s 1-2 was released, a single question was posed.

Brian Hibbs

As part of the 10th anniversary of The Savage Critic on the web, and since we had such a great time last year doing it with WILSON, we’ve decided to try and do several Savage Symposiums this year, leading with one “mainstream” and one “alternative” title. Abhay is leading the superhero one, which should see print in about two weeks, and I ended up leading this one, for Chester Brown’s PAYING FOR IT.   I asked the gang five questions, the first two of which are presented here for your reading pleasure. A question a day will follow through Friday.
