Comics Alternative Episode 113: Reviews of The Wake, True Stories, Vol. 1, and ODY-C #1

Is Double Ending Dirty?

WakeDeluxeThis week the Two Guys with PhDs (talking about comics) are back for another review episode, and this one is jam-packed with nougaty comics goodness. They begin with Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy’s deluxe edition of The Wake (DC/Vertigo). They had discussed the first couple installments of the ten-issue series on last year’s publisher spotlight on recent Vertigo titles, but now they are able to plunge into the the complete story…and they do so with relish. Both Andy and Derek love the way the narrative unfolds — it’s the kind of work they have come to expect from both Snyder and Murphy — although they do have their quibbles, e.g., unexpected/unlikely surprises in character development and occasional ambiguous transitions. But overall, the guys feel this is an outstanding story, an example of what Vertigo does best. TrueStories1Next, they turn to Derf Backderf’s True Stories, Vol. 1 (Alternative Comics), the first of four — or is it five? — collections of the “True Stories” pieces culled from Backderf’s comic strip, The City, between 1990 and 2014. While there are a few vignettes in this title that verge on belittlement, the collection as a whole is a discerning, satirical, and hilarious look at the state of our contemporary culture. Finally, Derek and Andy look at one of the new #1s coming out of Image Comics this month, Matt Fraction and Christian Ward’s ODY-C. This is an inverted retelling of Homer’s Odyssey, where genders are switched and the ODYC1high seas become the far reaches of space. This is a dense, immersive narrative that requires multiple readings. Knowledge of The Odyssey isn’t necessary, but it wouldn’t hurt for readers to have their copies of Edith Hamilton’s Mythology (or perhaps have Wikipedia) readily at hand when turning through Fraction’s narrative. And Ward’s art is what makes this first issue truly stand out, visually stunning and almost surreal, a nice pairing with one of the guys’ favorite comics storytellers. All in all, this was a fun week of reading!

Let’s Talk Comics: Episode 018 – Christian Ward


This week on the Let’s Talk Comics podcast we welcome artist Christian Ward to the show. Christian’s style is one that is positively unmistakable and one that is going to make waves in comics. An art teacher by day, Christian is clearly a student of the medium and doing everything he can to make his mark on this industry. He got his first pro comics gig with the Atomic Robo team, then went to work with Nathan Edmondson on Olympus and later did Infinite Vacation with Nick Spencer. With an upcoming creator owned series coming out from Image Comics with writer Matt Fraction, he’s a picture perfect example that it’s never too late to jump into making comics. And thats not all because Christian’s work can also be seen gracing the covers of some current Marvel comics!
