The Long Run takes place outside of our normal continuity of episodes, and features table discussion of an entire work or long selection of a series.
In this episode of The Long Run we talk about Elephantmen, written by Richard Starkings with various artists. Set two centuries in the future, Elephantmen is a mix of sci-fi and noir. It follows the lives of Hip Flask and Ebony—part of a group of human-animal hybrids built and bred and brainwashed for war—as they struggle to find acceptance and meaning after the war they were designed for ends.
On the next episode of The Long Run we will be reading Bone, by Jeff Smith.
Our hosts on this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Kit DeForge as Tobiah Panshin.
