In our second installment of VERSUS!, it's A History of Violence vs. A History of Violence. We cover it all from the original graphic novel by John Wagner and Vince Locke to the stunning film directed by David Cronenberg and starring Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello, Ed Harris and William Hurt. The round table consists of your familiar hosts Jimmy and Joe, along with comic newbie Lenae McKee and comic journalist and The Beat's own Heidi MacDonald and up and coming comic writer Ben McCool.
Join us as we break down each medium in 20+ minute increments and end with a compare/contrast of each. Which did we like best? How violent is each one? And just how much does Jimmy love Maria Bello? Tune in to find out!
