    Another fine podcast, gents.

    Your mentioning of both the compiled Horror Cinema Essentials and, later, iconic characters, got me thinking that you might do a multi-part survey of said iconic characters. I think it might be interesting to get your overviews of Conan, James Bond, Batman, Doc Savage, etc.
