Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 73: A Review of Red Light Properties and The Fuse #1

Creamy Comix

RLPThis week on the podcast Derek is joined by Andy Wolverton, yet another doctor who talks about comics…and a regular reviewer on The Comics Alternative blog. They review two new titles: Dan Goldman’s Red Light Properties (IDW Publishing) and issue #1 of Antony Johnston and Justin Greenwood’s new Image series, The Fuse. First, the Two Guys jump into Goldman’s latest work, Fusewhich originally appeared in digital format through MonkeyBrain Comics. They discuss one of the book’s greatest strengths, the author’s handling of the human drama underlying this “horror” story — what Andy calls a mix between Ghostbusters and American Beauty — as well as Goldman’s digital art and his unique approach to visual storytelling. Next, Derek and Andy turn to the first issue of The Fuse, focusing on the title’s mash-up of procedural and science fiction narratives. While mixing detective stories with other genres is nothing new — Brubaker and Phillips’s Fatale is perhaps the best recent example here of another such comic — Johnston and Greenword present The Fuse as something fresh, making it one of the promising new series from Image Comics.

This week’s incidental music is brought to you by
The Tornados, Ray Parker, Jr., Vic Mizzy, and Supergrass
