Episode CXXXI - Grendel vs. Palooka

Has it really been almost 100 years since Jules Bradbury and Leonardo Da Picasso created the world's first funnybook? It's probably been much longer than that, but since those two guys are fictional characters, the actual time tables don't really matter too much.
Grendel has been around for almost three decades. Joe Palooka has more than tripled that. If you were to put them in a battle of longevity, Palooka would win by a landslide. Unfortunately, most people judge comics on merits far beyond their mere shelf life, as it were. See what criteria the Comic Book Haters crack review team sets up against these two titles in this, the 131st episode of the Comic Book Haters podcast. Click this link, lest ye be a big old pussy.
