Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 76: Reviews of The Park, Veil #1, and Sovereign #1

Parks, Fantasy, and Naked Women from the Subway

ParkThis week on The Comics Alternative, Andy Wolverton joins Derek to discuss three new titles. First, they sift through Oscar Zarate’s new graphic novel, The Park (SelfMadeHero). The Two Guys focus on Zarate’s handling of character development, making The Park an Veil1engaging case study in family expectations and disappointments. They also comment on the lush art and how it sets the tone for the entire narrative. Next, they look at two #1 issues, beginning with the new series from Greg Rucka and Toni Fejzula’s Veil (Dark Horse Comics). Derek and Andy W. point out the various mysteries embedded in this first issue and how it propels the reader into the issues that will follow. Along with that, they discuss Fejzula’s artwork and how his pallet is the perfect match for Rucka’s dark and ambiguous narrative. From there they turn to SovereignSovereign, the new series by Chris Roberson and Paul Maybury (Image Comics). While both guys had some initial reservations — there is a lot packed into this first installment, perhaps more than a single issue can adequately contain and maintain coherency — they nonetheless feel that this issue requires multiple readings to be adequately appreciated. They admire Roberson’s ambitious world-building, and both guys trust the writer to carry through and flesh out this world in subsequent issues. All in all, Derek and Andy W. have a fun time discussing these three new titles that they highly recommend to all listeners.

Music is the theme, and kevin is in misery. Despite his best effort to mourn Jonathan Frid, Mike and TJ just want to discuss some awesome tunes. Warren Haynes and Gov’t Mule take center stage, and then the discussion turns to Mike and TJ’s musical instruments of choice, and Kevin’s prowess on the skin flute.
