In a segment with Erich and Gan titled “Superhero for Today,” Brian invited listeners to suggest villains for future adventures. Playing Name that Villain for Unemployed Man to Fight, suggestions included: “Lord Landlord,” the evil landlord who hikes your rent and doesn’t take care of your building so well; “The Headhunter,” the heartless executive recruiter; and “Dr. Hiring Freeze.” In a sign that this brilliant book resonates with all, some readers suggested villains already in the book. Check out their Q&A for more background on the conception of it.
Erich and Gan, dressed as Unemployed Man and Master of Degrees respectively, will be at one of the world’s largest pop culture conventions this weekend, New York Comic Con.
