Alternate Reality – Episode 390

*So I don’t know why but there was some static that was recorded during this last episode.  We have no idea why or where it came from as I didn’t discover it till we were posting the episode.  Might be a short in the mic cables.  Not sure.  We’ll try to figure out why this is happening.  Sorry about that.*

Alternate Reality – Episode #390

We’re back baby!  Alternate Reality was gone last week due exclusively to the fact that Charlie couldn’t make it back from Heroes Con in time.  But after a week hiatus to give Charlie a chance to sober up we got more comics to talk about this week.

This week, in order to earn a little small publisher/creator owned cred with Chris Partin, Charlie is talking about Skyward from Image Comics.  Charlie regales us with the awesome Zero-G premis of this story.  Then Jon and Charlie round out the rest of the episode talking about a slate of DC and Marvel books.

Lastly, Charlie fills us in on all the hijinks that occurred during his time in Charlotte, North Carolina at Heroes Con.  Charlie even has a special gift for Jon.

Alternate Reality; bringing you the best every week in comic book podcasting!!!

Enjoy!!!

Alternate Reality – Episode 388

Alternate Reality – Episode #388

Charlie this week is going deep on Descender from Image Comics telling why his feelings are so strong coming from the bottom of his very soul.  He’s also crazy about the Flash War.  He relates an amazing story found in the pages of Jughead: The Hunger about werewolves in the Archie universe.  And finally, Charlie reads a republished Star Wars story from Dark Horse in what is clearly a cash grab to coincide with the new Solo movie.  However, that doesn’t deter Charlie who had a lot of fun with the comedic revisionist history of Tag and Bink Were Here.

Meanwhile Jon is telling us about mostly the same books again.  He does get to mix it up just a little with Man of Steel #1, which is a new series about the same character that Jon always talks about.  Jon fills us in on whether the wait for Bendis was worth it and whether or not he delivered on this seminal fist issue.  Also, Jon follows up on Justice League: No Justice #3, and breaks a little more new ground with Doomsday Clock #5.

Alternate Reality coming to you wall to wall and tree top tall from our studio in Jeffersonville KY!!!

Enjoy!!!

Comics Alternative, Episode 253: Reviews of Lighter Than My Shadow, Now #1, and The Family Trade #1

Listen to the podcast!

Hungry for Art

This week Paul and Derek take on three exciting new titles. They begin with a moving memoir from UK creator Katie Green, Lighter Than My Shadow (Roar-Lion Forge). In this work, Green reveals the eating disorders she struggled with as a young girl and into adulthood. Growing up obsessive-compulsive, Green chronicles how this condition contributed to her anorexic behavior, later evolving into problems with binging. Green also narrates her many attempts to address these problems with various doctors and therapists, the most notorious of whom ends up sexually abusing her…providing even more obstacles to her recovery. The guys are impressed by Green’s honesty and storytelling abilities — particularly taken by her art and the visual metaphors she employs throughout — although toward the end of their conversation about this title, they wonder if perhaps the memoir could have been streamlined just a little. This is a 500+ page text, after all.

Next, the Two Guys look at a brand new anthology from Fantagraphics, Now #1. Edited by Eric Reynolds, this collection of diverse and experimental comic art brings to mind Fantagraphics previous anthology, Mome (which both Derek and Paul dearly miss). In fact, the guys begin their discussion of Now by referencing the earlier anthology, with Paul feeling that the latest efforts are more experimental than Mome, while Derek see it as more similar to the previous series. The only difference is number of new and/or unfamiliar creators in Now (and, Derek argues, such was also the case several years ago with Mome). Some of the standouts in this first issue of Now are Dash Shaw’s “Scorpio,” Gabrielle Bell’s “Dear Naked Guy…,” Sammy Harkham’s “I, Marlon,” Malachi Ward and Matt Sheean’s “Widening Horizon,” and especially Noah Van Sciver’s “Wall of Shame” (for Derek, the best of the collection). But the guys are also impressed, and at times curiously confused, by the contributions from creators that are new to them, such as Sara Corbett, J.C. Menu, Antoine Cossé, and Kaela Graham. But as Paul and Derek argue, the entire issue of Now is compelling and works successfully as an anthology. They can’t wait until the second issue, due for release in January.

Finally, the Two Guys wrap up with a discussion of Justin Jordan, Nikki Ryan, and Morgan Beem’s The Family Trade #1 (Image Comics). This is another example of the kind of world-building often found at Image, and it’s the story of a neutral territory in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, the Float, ruled by the descendants of the ship captains that originally founded the realm — called the Clans — and the Family, descendants of the hands who had worked for the captains. This first issue opens with the protagonist, Jessa Wynn, attempting to assassinate Stagger Berghardt, a Trump-like charismatic demagogue who appeals to the base instincts of the citizens of the Float. She bungles the assassination, but her efforts put into motion a series of encounters that will propel the narrative into the next issues. Both Derek and Paul are impressed by this first issue, especially Beem’s art, and both plan on remaining on board for the rest of the series.

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #280: Zack Kaplan

This week, in Episode 280, I talk with Zack Kaplan, the creator/scripter of a gripping series  called Eclipse from Top Cow/Image Comics. I met Zack at this year’s C2E2 convention, and I read Volume One of this fascinating mashup of sci-fi and murder mystery storyline. We discuss how he made this book happen, including teaming up with high-octane artist Giovanni Timpano. We discuss the second story arc, which I hadn’t yet picked up, so Zack gives some teasers for what we’ll see in those issues, including #7, which is due in local shops on Wednesday, May 17! I highly recommend this powerful book! For more about Zack, go to this link. Also, to keep up with Giovanni, be sure to check out his website here!
