In the second of their two-episode look into recent crime comics, Andy and Derek turn up some truly incriminating evidence. They begin their investigations with Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me, adapted by Devin Faraci and Vic Malhotra (IDW Publications). The guys spend much of their time comparing this adaptation to the original classic noir novel, yet at the same time they try to focus on the comic on its own terms. Next, they briefly discuss Christopher Sebela and Niko Walter’s Demonic (Image Comics), a mashup of both crime and horror, and the first issue of Wolfcop (Dynamite Entertainment). The latter is Max Marks’s spinoff of the 2014 movie, and despite (or because of) its over-the-topness, it doesn’t capture much of the guys’ attention. But Derek and Andy are  much more interested in the next two #1 issues, Frank J. Barbiere and Victor Santos’s Violent Love (Image Comics) and James Robinson and Tom Feister’s Grand Passion (Dynamite Entertainment). These are both crime narratives with a twist of romance, stories that look to play off of the young-couple-on-a-crime-spree formula. Finally, the guys wrap up with the first volume of Goldie Vance (BOOM! Box), Hope Larson and Brittney Williams’s all-age detective series, reminiscent of Nancy Drew and Sally Lockhart stories.

And if you  haven’t already, be sure to catch last week’s episode, the first in the Two Guys’ look at recent crime comics.

The incidental music in this episode is from classic crime TV shows, and you can find these theme songs in Television’s Greatest Hits, Vol. 1Television’s Greatest Hits Vol. 4, Television’s Greatest Hits Vol. 5and Television’s Greatest Hits, Vol. 6. Check out the fun!
