Comic Book Films Kareem Abdul Jabbar Plays Defense For The Marvel Film Universe

Listen to "Comic Book Films Kareem Abdul Jabbar Plays Defense For The Marvel Film Universe" on Spreaker.

In his Essay at the Hollywood Reporter Jabbar wrote a balanced look at Martin Scorsese's dismisal of the MCU films as not being examples of "Cinema" He understands where Marty is coming from but also points out the brilliant film making happening in the MCU.

We look closely at his essay, then represent my 2017 interview with Kareem.  he talks about his  graphic novel from Titan Mycroft Holmes and The Apocalypse Handbook. He's a longtime Sherlock Holmes fan and we talk about his take on the elder Holmes backstory, something Arthur Conan Doyle barely hinted at in few of Sherlock's adventures. Kareem has created an exciting steampunk backdrop and envisions the young Mycroft as a dashing hero rubbing shoulders with many famous people of the 19th century. This is a great read for Holmes and steampunk fans.

We also go full blast into Kareem's life long love of comcs from buying them at his local candy store as a child, to his adult appreciation of the books today. You'll hear about encounters with comic book luminaries, adventures at san diego comic cons, and much more.
