Comics Are Great! 20 – Harry Vs. Aslan
It’s a lighter look at storytelling as I’m joined by Dave Roman for a friendly debate over which is better–the Harry Potter series, or The Chronicles of Narnia? Throughout the discussion we cover the merits of each property’s storytelling, the difference between writing fantasy and mythology, and the problems with dating your material.
We’re joined at the end by Gale Williams (though I apologize for insisting on calling her by the name “Grace”), who shares her own thoughts on what makes the Harry Potter series so great.
