Comics Alternative, Episode 304: The January Previews Catalog

A New Year, a New Approach

It’s the first episode of the new year, and for the January Previewsshow the Two Guys decide to try something different: invite a third person to join them in discussing the current Previewscatalog. This week Sterg and Derek are joined by Troy-Jeffrey Allen who works with community outreach at PREVIEWSworld. And given Troy’s association with Diamond Distributors and the ins and outs of their monthly catalog, he’s able to provide insights and additional commentary that results in an extra special discussion. And as you might expect, the addition of a third conversant makes this episode longer than usual…as if the guys’ monthly Previews shows weren’t long enough. Among the many publishers and titles that Troy, Sterg, and Derek highlight are:

A BIG THANKS to Troy-Jeffrey Allen for his contributions to this episode!

Be sure to keep up with the good people at PREVIEWSworld, and check out Troy on PREVIEWSworld’s weekly YouTube show!

About Derek Royal

The Comics Alternative is a weekly podcast focused on the world of alternative, independent, and primarily non-superhero comics. (There’s nothing wrong with the superhero genre…we just want to do something different.) New shows become available every Wednesday…much like the comic books you get. Episodes feature reviews of graphic novels and current ongoing series, discussions of upcoming comics, examinations of collected editions, in-depth analyses of a variety of comics texts, spotlights on various creators and their oeuvre, roundtable discussions with prominent critics and scholars in the field, and interviews with the artists and writers who make all of this possible. Along the way, Andy and Derek will talk about the various books that they are reading; the many pop cultural references that, for better or worse, inform their lives; and the unpredictable (and inexplicable) weirdness that seems to creep into each episode. In essence,The Comics Alternative podcast is brilliantly simple: Two guys with PhDs talking about comics.
