Standouts!

It’s that time again! It’s the end of the year, their very last weekly review episode of 2018, and so the Two Guys are ready to share what they consider to be their favorite comics of the past twelve months. This is Sterg’s first time doing this, but he successfully steps up to the plate to reveal what he considers his 10 favorites of 2018. And Derek does the same.

Before that, though, they go over a few statistics from the past year. Over the course of 2018 — at least up until the time of the recording of this end-of-the-year show — The Comics Alternativereleased a total of 171 episodes of the podcast. Of that number, 55 were interviews, 10 were webcomics shows, 11 manga episodes, 10 from the Euro comics series, 6 were young reader shows, 16 on-location episodes, and 1 special. (And since Sterg and Derek recorded this “Favorites” episode, there have been at least three other shows for the current year, an on-location, a webcomic, and a Euro comics show. Maybe a manga episode will go up before the new year, as well?)

But of much more importance are the various titles that both Sterg and Derek picked as this year’s favorites. Each chooses, in no particular order, what he considers to be his 10 favorites of 2018:

Sterg’s Top 10 of 2018

Derek’s Top 10 of 2018

The Honorable Mentions…These Titles Almost, but Just Didn’t Quite, Make It onto Each Guy’s List

It’s the epic 900th episode live recording! And strap in, kids. It’s a LENGTHY ONE at almost 2 hours! We were having so much fun chatting with guests that we didn’t realize the time. You’ll love it though! Once again, Jimmy and Producer Joe hold their anniversary podcast at Hourglass Tavern in NYC. Thanks to Beth & Josh for being such awesome hosts at their restaurant! Jimmy hosted while Producer Joe manned the tech boards while co-hosting. Jimmy welcomed special guests Michael Emerson, William Jackson Harper, Jamal Igle, Rebecca Soler and Liana Kangas. Like every anniversary episode, Jimmy wrote song parodies and recruited friends to be a part of the CNI Chorus. Thanks to Kristen French, Kami Graves, Cheryl Orsini, Rachel Gavaletz, Nic Rockwood and Brianna Melroy for singing their lungs out! And big ups to my newsreaders and reviewers Emily Edwards, Gretchen Souerwine and Ali Sattar.

Such a fantastic night! Thanks to everyone whom attended. We packed the room to standing room only! For reals! Everyone had a great time. Great to see friends and strangers alike that came along to enjoy the show. We couldn’t have made it this far without all of the CNI listeners. Thanks for sticking with us over the years and here’s to looking forward to 1000! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
