Comics Alternative, Episode 227: Reviews of Untitled Ape’s Epic Adventure, Blood Blister #1, and The Belfry

Listen to the podcast!


Time Codes:


This week the Two Guys with PhDs discuss three very different titles. They begin with Steven Tillotson’s Untitled Ape’s Epic Adventure (Avery Hill Publishing), a different kind of quest narrative that blends the anthropomorphic and the surreal. After that, they look at Phil Hester and Tony Harris’s Blood Blister #1, the latest serial offering from AfterShock Comics. And finally, Andy and Derek wrap up with The Belfry (Image Comics), a one-shot horror title from Gabriel Hardman.
