LSU vs. Ohio State. The Redskins vs. the Cowboys. Liddell vs. Silva. Triple H vs. Ric Flair. It’s the time of year for monumental battles with life-changing consequences.
We thought we’d join in the fun by pitting our “Big Two” columnists against each other inside the virtual octagon in a no-holds-barred war of words on who had the better year, Marvel or DC. The format is simple … I threw out six questions on different aspects of the comic book business, giving each of our competitors the chance to initially respond to three of them. Then they had the opportunity to respond to their opponent’s responses on the other three. And finally, we had one final question that hopefully helped them summarize the year for their company of choice.
In one corner, we’ve got Tom “T-Bone” Bondurant, our resident Grumpy Old Fan. By day, Tom wields his words like a scalpel in courtrooms all over the Southeast; as a lawyer, he was born to debate. And his knowledge and love for DC knows no bounds.
In the other corner, we have the “Dynamo Kid,” Carla Hoffman, who, as a comic shop employee, probably spends a good deal of her day debating with the best of them. This California girl’s passion for all things Marvel is limitless, so no doubt T-Bone will have his hands full.
So grab some popcorn, your drink of choice and one of those big foam fingers, fanboys and fangirls … and let’s get ready to rumble!
