DIY

This week on The Comics Alternative, Andy and Derek do something they’ve never done before on the podcast: discuss only self-published titles. They got the idea for this special episode from one of the creators they look at, Glynnis Fawkes, when she was kind enough to send them copies of her latest book. So after hearing from her, Derek and Andy thought, “Why not devote an entire episode to creators like Glynnis?”

Appropriately enough, they begin with Fawkes’s book, Greek Diary, which won the 2017 MoCCAfest Award of Excellence. This is an account of the author’s experiences in Greece during June and early July 2016. Fawkes devoted the first part of her diary to her work as an archeological illustrator, but the majority of the text covers the time that her family joined her for vacation after her professional obligations. As the Two Guys reveal, this part of Greek Diary is an entertaining mix between a travelogue and a journal of familial “challenges.” (If you’ve ever traveled with small children, you certainly know what that means.)

Next, they discuss the first four issues of Summer Pierre’s Pencil Paper Life. This is Pierre’s ongoing collection of diary comics that she began keeping back in 2013. Each issue is a series of the creator’s occasional observations, reflections, and personal accounts that mostly follow a standard nine-panel grid. These comics explore her life as an artist, memories linked to pop-cultural signposts, her efforts in negotiating varying social terrains, and especially her joys — as well as her struggles — in being a mother.

Finally, the guys wrap up with Katriona Chapman’s KatZine. At the time of the recording there are so far seven issues that have been released, and this title stands out from Fawkes’s and Pierre’s in several ways. First, KatZine is more of a single-author anthology, with there being a variety of entries, including several regular features (including “Sergio Talk!,” “Local Business,” “Featured Plant,” and “Fears and Loves”). It’s also different in that the comic is a mix between straight-out comics and prose-heavy pieces. In other words, this is a zine in the more traditional sense. But KatZine also stands in contrast to Greek Diary and Paper Pencil Life in that it’s not entirely autobiographically based. There are a few pieces collected among the seven issues that are clearly fictional in nature. What’s more, in some of her more recent issues Chapman expresses her interests in melding life writing with fiction, an impulse that she is apparently carrying into her first graphic novel.

Please help support these independent creators by visiting their websites and buying their comics:

Doc and Father Shepherd welcome back fellow honorary cult member John Litrell from Burnt Wieners fame! There was no keeping him away from podcasting altogether and we are better off for it.  

This episode we speculate on Nathan Fillion’s confirmed “cameo” in Guardians of the Galaxy, Daniel Radcliffe’s desire to be Robin, Rian Johnson being recruited to write and direct some Star Wars, and then we go on to announce our new comics giveaway contest and answer listener questions, which turns into an entire long segment about comics, which is why we are here in the first place.

Feed It Comics ep. 14 | “Four Horseman of the Podcopalypse”

ep-14

The master needs his menu prepared for the next month so the Order of Caretakers employs the temporary assistance of Josh from Apocalypse Later to present offerings. Let me be clear, this episode is an utter DEBACLE disguised as a good production, but what resulted was more endearingly idiosyncratic than one would hope.

So yes, we actually talk about somewhat current comics, and even though an entire hilarious segment was accidentally NOT recorded, and Brother Oberts had the gall to suggest we burn Avengers in the incinerator, a Frankenstein of a listenable show has come together. Please join us as we feed it comics…

If you enjoy the show, PLEASE make it a point to leave us a review on itunes, it would be incredibly cool of you and it will help us jump up in the standings. Surely you want the whole world to have access to such premium free media! Also, there is a comment section below meant for discussions. Try communicating with us, it may be the best thing you’ve done within hours.

Hey everybody, Brother Shepherd and your good Doctor are very pleased to bring you a gem of an episode, where we once again retrieve a story FROM THE ARCHIVES and riff all over it. Detective Comics #459 to be exact. That’s not all though! We gaze into the future and take a look at some upcoming comics via previews and rant a little bit about the last episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. Ultron even tries to take over the show at one point, and we get a letter from a special secret admirer. You can’t miss this one, so listen to it NOW and get it out of the way! The order of caretakers loves you, mwaaa! *blows sloppy kiss*
