Alternate Reality – Episode 402

Alternate Reality – Episode #402

It was a fifth-week so the books were light on the Alternate Reality Podcast, but none the less the conversation was full.  The big event in the DC Universe right now is Heroes in Crisis and Jon is here to tell you all about who killed who in this epic “Who Done It” in the DC Universe.  Not to be outdone Charlie gives us an earful about Marvel’s even “Spider-Geddon” (ominous music).

The boys round out the night with talk of everything from He-Man fighting Superman to Batman hunting a yeti.  It was a full show in not a full week of books.

Enjoy!!!

Wayne’s Worlds: Go, GameStop, Go!

I was really discouraged when Toys R Us went bankrupt not long ago. Yes, I did enjoy buying toys and figures and such there for years, but what really hit me was that comics like those from Alterna were reaching customers there.

Now, that was over.

I’ve recently been reading from several sources about another company, GameStop, and their experiment with selling DC and Marvel comics in a limited number of their stores.

All I can say is, go, GameStop, go! Continue reading

Alternate Reality – Episode 401


Alternate Reality – Episode #401

The boys wind down the Halloween season by talking about some scary book this week…… Well, kind of.  I mean Jon’s talking about the Halloween specials Dynamite put out for both Red Sonja and Vampirella.  Charlie’s keeping things supernatural with Books of Magic.  And Jon brings it back around with his low-down on Spider-Geddon – a book featuring vampire-like bad guys called the inheritors.  (That was kind of a stretch wasn’t it)

Truth be told that’s it for the spooky stuff, but we’ve got some good old superhero action with The Terrifics, and Return of Wolverine, and if I might add a touch of space-opera in Star Wars: Dr. Aphra.  All of those books, while not horror books, do have anxious moments of intense action, scary even.  So don’t count them out till you’ve heard the reviews.

And then there’s the scariest thing of all….. Jon and Charlie.  (insert scream here)

Have a terrifyingly good time.

Enjoy!!!

Comics Alternative for Young Readers: Reviews of 3×4, The Creepy Case Files of Margo Maloo: The Monster Mall, and Sheets

Time Codes:

blkfade

Boo!

On this episode of the Comics Alternative’s Young Readers show, Gwen is joined by her new co-host, Dr. Krystal Howard, an assistant professor in the Liberal Studies and English departments at California State University, Northridge. Krystal has been reading, writing about, and teaching children’s and YA comics for a number of years and has a particular interest in gender and comics studies. In 2017, Krystal’s essay “Gothic Excess and the Body in Vera Brosgol’s Anya’s Ghost” appeared in Gwen’s co-edited volume (with Michelle Ann Abate), Graphic Novels for Children and Young Adults, and she has another comics-related essay, “Comics Grammar in Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s Picture Book Collaborations” that is forthcoming in The Artistry of Neil Gaiman: Finding Light in the Shadows. Regular listeners to the Young Readers show will already know Krystal from her spot as a panelist last summer on a special roundtable that Gwen and Paul Lai hosted on the future of children’s and YA comics.

Before they begin discussing the books for this month’s show, Gwen and Krystal mention the wonderful contributions of Paul Lai, who has recently graduated with his doctorate from the School of Education in Language, Literacy, and Culture at the University of California, Berkeley, and who has begun a new position as Director of UC Berkeley’s prestigious BE3 program, which stands for Berkeley Educators for Equity and Excellence. Paul intends to return to the Comics Alternative family from time to time as a podcaster, and Gwen and Krystal wish him the very best in his new role.

During the main portion of the show, Gwen and Krystal discuss three new releases: Ivan Brunetti’s 3 x 4, published last month by TOON Books and geared towards early elementary readers, and two Halloween-oriented middle grade graphic novels: Drew Weing’s The Creepy Case Files of Margo Maloo: The Monster Mall, which is the second in the Margo Maloo series from First Second books, and Brenna Thummler’s debut, Sheets, put out by Lion Forge’s Cubhouse imprint.

Both Krystal and Gwen found Brunetti’s 3 x 4 to be a great addition to the plethora of STEM-focused comics that have been published in the last five years, including First Second’s Science Comics series and Mike Holmes and Gene Luen Yang’s Secret Coders. Krystal praises Brunetti for his inclusion of a diverse and eclectic group of young people, and Gwen notes that for the detail-oriented child, every page offers up an opportunity to discover the many ways that the number 12 can be divided into sets!

Next, the two PhDs consider Drew Weing’s follow up to his highly successful first volume of the Margo Maloos series: The Creepy Case Files of Margo Maloo: The Monster Mall. Gwen appreciates Weing’s decision to continue focusing on the costs of gentrification, while Krystal notes that the inclusion of teenage characters adds a new dimension to the series.

Finally, Gwen and Krystal discuss the amazing debut by Brenna Thummler, Sheets (Lion Forge), which takes place in a lake resort town and focuses on the struggles of a young woman who has become the proprietor of her family’s laundromat, all while trying to fit in at middle school. Her interactions with Wendell, the ghost of an eleven-year-old boy, end up making life a lot better for both of them. Krystal points out Thummler’s attention to figural placement and atmospherics, and Gwen suggests that while some of the plot points might seem a little far-fetched, the novel holds together well and deals with class conflict in a manner that is also present in Weing’s Margo Maloo series.

In November, Gwen and Krystal will be back with another set of books to review, as well as 2018 best-of-list recommendations for our listener’s winter holiday celebrations.

Alternate Reality – Episode 400

Alternate Reality – Episode #400

There’s a party going on right here, and it’s Jon and Charlie celebrating their 400th episode.  We’ve got special music, we’ve got good friends, and there’s the sexy ladies over there dancing on the…. Well you can’t see that so there’s no point in getting into it.

Suffice it to say that there’s a lot of fun going on here but Jon and Charlie don’t let that get in their way.  They’ve got comics to review, and by Jiminy nothing’s going to stop them.  Jon continues to be challenged by the Immortal Hulk, while Charlie walks us through Spider-Geddon.  Several DC comics then make the list, Supergirl, Hawkman, and Detective Comics respectively, and Charlie finishes talking about an Image book (of all things) about an STD that improves your looks??? Yep, you heard me.

Lastly Jon and Charlie get some love from a couple longtime listeners who sent in voicemails to help us celebrate the 400th episode.  There’s too much fun for your tiny mind to process on this episode of Alternate Reality!!!

Enjoy.

The Immortal Hulk #7
Spider-Geddon #1
