Thanks for 20 years of amazing heart warming and heart breaking stories about the genre we love so much: Superheroes!We here at the Pulp 2 Pixel Podcasts can't wait to see what stories you have still to tell. To harken back to the letter page of the very first issue of the very first series. Dusk has fallen, the fire is lit, and we still wait for the storyteller to speak.
