So what is fan fiction? Hunt around the net for information on your favorite characters and comics and chances are you'll run across it in one form or another. You'll find movies, animation, pictures, stories and even full comics done by fans. How good are they, who is doing them and why? On this edition of the Dollar Bin we talk about the good, the bad and the embarrassing in the online world of fan fiction.
MiniCasts: available only at theDollarBin.net:

- OMG! We talk about sex and girls. On a comic book podcast? Of course, why wouldn't we. SEX SELLS!
