Defenders Dialogue

Best-selling, award-winning novelists and comic book writers Christopher Golden and Brian Keene rediscover one of their earliest mutual influences -- Marvel Comics' long-running, loony THE DEFENDERS series.

They discuss the series, in chronological order, from the viewpoints of creatives, critics, and fans, sharing their passion and love for these enduring characters and story lines, and engaging in the most self-indulgent fanboy nonsense you'll ever encounter.

Doctor Strange, Nighthawk, the Incredible Hulk, Valkyrie, Hellcat, Sub-Mariner, Silver Surfer, Gargoyle, the Son of Satan, Moon Knight, Devil-Slayer and all of your other favorite Bronze Age Marvel characters abound.

Tune in each week for insight, nostalgia, and laughs in this deep appreciation we call DEFENDERS DIALOGUE.

Excelsior, true believers!
