Jam-Packed

This month, Gwen and Paul discuss the three Eisner Award categories that focus on comics for young readers. And this is a jam-packed, extra-long episode! As they work through each set of nominees, Paul and Gwen discuss the value of prizing in general and the challenges faced by the judges when they must cull such a small number of texts from a pool that is increasingly deep. Inevitably, they mention many other texts that felt were strong contenders for recognition, making this episode a great resource for any parent, child, teen, or teacher who is eager to learn about this year’s great comics.

Cammy’s Comic Corner – Geeky Talky – Episode 134

Photobucket

In this special episode it’s an Archaia Publishing extravaganza! I review several of their titles (that you must pick up, they’re so wonderful), including Mouse Guard, Labyrinth and Other Stories, Cow Boy, Spera, Black Fire, and Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand. Just think; this is merely a handful of amazing titles that Archaia has to offer!
