Crumb, Maus by Art Spiegelman, and Orc Stain by James Stokoe. From there, they go on to discuss superhero teams. From the all-star teams of Justice League of America and The Avengers to more self-contained teams like the X-Men, X-Statix, and the Teen Titans to the more indie teams of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and DNAgents, the various teams of the last 50 years are explored. - @JustJon
