, the independent series by Fred Van Lente (The Incredible Hercules
) and Ryan Dunlavey (Action Philosophers

The latest issue is an all lawsuit joint that breaks down the legal battles of famous creators like Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster, Jack Kirby, and Joe Simon. If you were never exactly sure just how hard the creators of Superman and Captain America got screwed by DC and Marvel respectively, you can learn about it now in this helpful and highly entertaining primer!
