Comics Alternative, Episode 276: Reviews of Milk Wars, Motor Girl Omnibus, and Strangers in Paradise XXV #1 & #2

Crossovers

Paul is back on the podcast, fresh from working on his dissertation. On this episode, he updates Derek on his dissertating progress, and then the Two Guys plunge into the show proper. They begin by looking at the five issues that make up the DC Universe/Young Animal crossover Milk Wars (DC Comics). Both Paul and Derek share their experiences reading JLA/Doom Patrol Special #1Mother Panic/Batman Special #1Shade, the Changing Girl/Wonder Woman Special #1Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye/Swamp Thing Special #1, and Doom Patrol/JLA Special #1. A significant difference between the guys’ appreciation of the Milk War crossover is linked to each of their post reading history with both the Young Animal titles and DC’s current superhero happenings.

After that, they celebrate the recent work of Terry Moore. The Two Guys discus in detail Motor Girl Omnibus, released just last month from Moore’s Abstract Studios. This is a limited series that originally came out in 2017, but both Derek and Paul wanted to revisit the title now that the entire run is available in one volume. From there, they jump into the first two issues of Moore’s latest efforts, Strangers in Paradise XXV. Both are excited to be back in the world of Katchoo and Francine, and even more compelling is the fact that Moore is crossing over his narrative worlds. There are elements of both Rachel Rising and Echo in this new SiP. And while those familiar with Moore’s previous comics will bring an enhanced appreciation to the latest series, first-time readers of Moore will nonetheless get a lot out of Strangers in Paradise XXV without feeling lost. Both Paul and Derek love the work of Terry Moore, and their discussion of these new releases demonstrate this fact.

And the Winner Is…

Paul and Derek are back with The Comics Alternative‘s annual “Favorites” episode. This is where the Two Guys share what they consider to be the best comics of the past year. Usually this year-end show is released as the very last regular review episode of each year, but this time around the guys had to postpone the recording due to family issues. But we’re not far from the end of 2017, and Paul and Derek wanted to get the show out in as timely a manner as possible. So here you have it, the Two Guys’ 10 favorite titles of 2017:

Comics Alternative, Episode 222: A Discussion of DC’s Young Animal Line

Listen to the podcast!

Animal House

This week the Two Guys with PhDs Talking about Comics discuss DC’s Young Animal titles. They begin with Gerard Way and Nick Derington’s Doom Patrol, the maiden voyage of the new imprint. There have been three issues released so far, and the guys really like what they’ve seen. Way definitely takes a cue from Grant Morrison’s legendary run on the title, referencing many of Morrison’s original additions to the Silver Age series — most notably Danny the Street and Flex Mentallo — yet at the same time making Doom Patrol uniquely his own.

After that, Andy and Derek discuss the first four issues of Shade the Changing Girl. This is Cecil Castellucci and Marley Zarcone’s revamping of the old Steve Ditko creation (and best popularized in the early 1990s by Peter Milligan and Chris Bachelor), Shade the Changing Man. Their emphasis on the lives of young high school women promises to be a curious spin on the property.

Next, the guys turn to what Andy calls his favorite of the Young Animal line, Jonathan Rivera, Gerard Way, and Michael Avon Oeming’s Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye. As they point out, Cave Carson is a character from the early 1960s appearing in both Brave and the Bold and Showcase, but unlike his contemporary Rip Hunter, he never received a title of his own. Way, Rivera, and Oeming are now giving him that opportunity.

The Two Guys conclude their episode with a very different kind of Young Animal title, Jody Houser and Tommy Lee Edwards’s Mother Panic. This is the only one of the four series not to be based on Silver Age properties, and it’s the only one to be deeply enmeshed into the DC Universe. For that reason, Derek is less enamored with Mother Panic — at least in terms of the first two issues so far — feeling that it takes itself too seriously and wonders why this wasn’t a regular DC title. Andy has no problem with this Gotham-drenched series.
