Stateside Podcast: Big win for Michigan-born comics scholar
San Diego Comic-Con International is kind of like the Nerd Oscars: very glitzy with stars of top-grossing comics-based movies and awards galore.
The Eisner Awards are the highest honor in comics. This year's winner of the Eisner for Best Comic-related Book is Michigan-born writer and critic Douglas Wolk.
Last year Wolk consumed some 27,000 comic books — the entirety of Marvel Comics’ output spanning more than half a century. He wrote a book about it: All of the Marvels. On today's rerun episode, Wolk shares Marvel triumphs and misses. He also reveals what it took get through all those books.
