    Apologies for this short episode, lacking a proper intro and without the usual deep dive into a particular comic. But we hope you’ll enjoy this chat this week nonetheless:

    On this shorter episode of the Comics Syllabus (Apologies! Paul’s fallen sick!), Multiversity’s Mike Mazzacane comes on to talk about his favorite movies adapted from comics of 2017, a year that was replete with comic book movies… and the train isn’t slowing down! Mike and Paul discuss Logan, Wonder Woman, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, and Atomic Blonde (Mike’s picks), also chatting up the Marvel and DC movie universes.

    Let Paul know if you’re interested in discussion about “Shutter” (by Keatinge and Del Duca from Image), “Black Bolt” (by Ahmed and Marvel), “Secret Coders” (First Second), or “Everything is Flammable” (by Gabriel Bell from Uncivilized) by voting at the Twitter poll linked here: http://twitter.com/TwoPlai/status/940416465395576833 or by reaching out through one of the means below!
