Comics Alternative, On Location: The December Visit to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

Highlighting 2018

Mike and Derek are back at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC, for their December show. It’s been a couple of months since their last visit to the shop — this past fall was difficult for everyone — but the guys are excited to sit down among customers and talk comics. And this being the end of 2018, they thought they’d discuss the year in review, the highlights, the news, and the notable titles that defined 2018. Among other topics, they cover the unfortunate passing of several comics legends over the past year, including Steve Ditko, Stan Lee, and Marie Severin. (They mistakenly bring up Bernie Wrightson, as well, although he died last year.) They also spend time talking about 2018 being the year that the imprints Black Crown and Berger Books really took off, the 1000th issue of Action Comics, the impact of Tom King this year, Grant Morrison’s new work on Green Lantern, and the past year in terms of the Marvel cinematic (and Netflix) universe. While Mike is free to share some of his favorite titles from the past twelve months, Derek is a little reticent because he doesn’t want to give away what he’ll discuss on next week’s year-end episode where he and Stergios reveal what each considers their favorites of 2018. Stay turned for that!

And remember, The Comics Alternative‘s on-location series is part of the Queen City Podcast Network. Check out the other great shows that make up this audio community!
